The farm is very remote, but Val does a great job of ferrying everyone to and from Hadrian's wall path and the pub . The accommodation is simple, but clean. We were asked to be sparing with the hot water as there were 6 of us. This was disappointing as 2 of the group were looking forward to a good... More

The owner picked me up from the pub which is about a mile away from the farm, also got dropped back onto the Hadrian's Wall Path in the morning which is a great service. Val is very welcoming and friendly. Room was comfortable and very clean. Well recommended.

Val picked us up from Steel Rigg car park, although this involved a hike up the hill from 'Twice Brewed' car park as the farmhouse B&B is quite remote. The bedroom was clean and functional, although a little tired, and unfortunately the shower attachment above the bath wasn't working. However, Val kindly took us to and from 'Twice Brewed' later...

We were walking the wall and found this B and B met the bill as far as we were concerned. Mrs Gibson has been running the ship for many years and provides a homely place to rest. We were picked up from Steel Rigg car park, and delivered back there the next morning. She also drove us to the pub... More

A lovely quiet setting just north of Hadrian's wall with hundreds of swallows flying around. The ambience was great, the welcome by Val the owner was warm and friendly, the breakfast was good and the company of other walkers was most enjoyable. The bed was very comfortable being of the memory foam mattress. The plumbing was disappointing as there was... More

Val went to a lot of trouble to come and find us after we had phoned from Vindoland and it was as well she did as the farm is a distance from Hadrian's Wall. Once there she offered us a beer and gave us a chance to change before we were taken to the "neighbours" where we had an excellent... More

We stayed one night B&B doing the Hadrian’s Wall walk. It is not ideally situated, as it is over 1 mile from the walk trail, adding to the journey (mostly downhill there, mostly uphill back). It is a strange mix. The room was absolutely beautiful, large and well furnished, a bathroom as big as a small bedroom – felt like... More

We arrived very late at night so although had issues finding it we really appreciated the fact that Val stayed up late and waited for us. Nothing was too much trouble even during our brief stay which made everything all the better. Will definitely return to spend some more time walking around the wall.

We didn't have trouble finding the bed and breakfast. There were signs directing us there. The country side is beautiful. The house martins, sheep and little lambs are animals we don' have at home. You can see Hadrian's Wall in the distance. The scenery from our room window was beautiful. The room was large and the bathroom was large and... More

We stayed at Gibbs Hill Famr while on the Hadrians Wall Walk. It was a long day hiking in overcast, drizzly weather and we were welcomed with tea and biscuits the moment we walked in. Val agreed to pick us up at the Steel Rigg car park but we decided to walk and it was an easy pleasant walk down... More
