Situated on the outskirts of the village of Gilsland, the house is very close to Hadrians Wall.This spacious former joiners workshop offers luxurious, contemporary accommodation in the heart of Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site. Recently converted by local craftsmen to the highest standard, Alpha Rise offers something a little different to the typical holiday cottage. An ideal base to explore the central section of Hadrians Wall and to enjoy the taste of rural village life without compromising on comfort.
