From our warm welcome to an equally warm farewell we enjoyed every minute of our stay at Brookside Villa. Denise was a great hostess and her food superb. We wanted for nothing and appreciated all the thoughtful extras: lotion for those tired feet (we were walking Hadrian's Wall Path), books to read, information on the area, washing dried for us....

After a long walking day, it was just so nice to get to stay at such a lovely place with lovely atmosphere. The place made us feel welcoming as well as the owner. We stayed on the attic room which is decorated nicely and well equipped. The meals were just besutiful. We were sad to leave.

We spent 2 nights at Brookside as part of a journey along Hadrian's Wall using buses and walking. Denise gave us a warm welcome and helped us several times with transport (local buses now being a rare thing). The bedroom was large and well equipped and the bed very comfortable. Breakfasts were very well presented and tasty; the honesty bar... More

I stayed at Brookside for 3 nights while walking The Wall. Gerry was in charge when I arrived as Denise had to be away for a while. Everything ran really efficiently, the bedroom was comfortable with everything needed available and breakfast was delicious. There was plenty of information about the area to read in the room as well.The bonus for... More

Great for walkers and non-walkers; Denise has thought of everything and is a wonderful host. A really relaxing atmosphere makes any stay a pleasure. Rooms are very comfortable and showers are powerful and hot (brilliant after a long day walking on the wall). Great breakfasts, wonderful dinners with imaginative veggie options. And lots of really useful info from Denise and... More

We stayed here as part of our walk on Hadrian's Wall. Despite the considerable distance from the wall it was a lovely place. Our rooms were very compact, including an ensuite that was tiny, but it had all the requirements for a pleasant stay. We liked the shared lounging room with an honesty tab bar. Denise cooked us an evening... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. One point though - I don;t think that 500metres (less than 10 minutes walk) is "considerable". I know you said you didn't follow the directions both your tour company and my website provide you with - that would add to the distance a bit! I checked it again this morning (in the... More

One of the best B&B's on the wall!! Beautifully clean house, with a new bright and airy dining room. We had a lovely evening meal with a bottle of wine (not overly priced) and a very good quality breakfast. Bedroom was a little on the small side but we were only there for one night. We found Denise to be... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. As with most converted houses, room sizes do differ, and the room you stayed in IS the smaller of these - hence we usually book it for guests staying just one night. We have been advised that if we changed the king-size bed for a small double, the roomwould appear... More

Touring along Hadrian's Wall, Brookside was a perfect stopping point. a nice setting, spacious room, assistance with an overseas emergency phone call, advice on our next day's journey, an excellent full breakfast, and to top it off we were able to eat (an excellent) dinner there also.

It is our pleasure to have people stay for their first experience of a B&B - and to show how far B&B's have moved on in recent years, Most of us try to offer some of the key "facilities" you would expect from a large hotel - but with personal touches that you would only expect from the VERY best....
