My son and I stayed one night and enjoyed it very much. The house is wonderful as are the views towards the wall. The bathroom had everything one could possibly need or want should we have forgotten anything. The breakfast was lovely too: fruit and yogurt and plenty of bread, toast, pastries, different kinds of milk, but we weren't offered... More

The best Bed and Breakfast we've ever been in and that includes hotels in Britain and abroad. Would recommend it to anyone. Set in a lovely part of the country with a wonderful view, rooms spacious and with everything you need. Great breakfast and well located for visiting Hadrians Wall and surrounding countryside

Elaine and Ian go above and beyond to ensure your stay is memorable. Nothing is too much trouble. The room we requested was waiting for us along with a welcoming pot of tea and homemade ginger cake, served on the patio overlooking the gorgeous countryside. The range of food for breakfast was excellent, whatever your taste. They recommended places to... More

Trip advisor A wonderfully located and appointed property. The room and facilities were immaculate as was the rest of the charming house. Breakfast was perfect and served with a smile and charming conversation. Without a question of a doubt our hosts went out of their way to accommodate us. I would stay there again.

My sister and I stayed at the Hill on the Wall whilst on a walking tour of Hadrian's Wall. Our room was opulent - warm, comfortable and luxurious. The large ensuite bathroom had a wonderful shower - perfect after a long day's walking. Breakfast the next morning was absolutely outstanding - fresh and flavoursome and made more enjoyable with the... More

Apart from just a station on the Hadrian Wall trail one can also make wonderful hikes in the area (and find the 'popping stone' of Sir Walter Scott). Coming home after a long walk we found cake in our room, a fresh pot of tea and all the hospitality from Elaine. Breakfast was something to look forward to. Thank you,... More

This was a return visit, prompted by a previous one-night stop while walking Hadrian's Wall and remembered as one of the most luxurious B&Bs ever visited. This time we spent just two nights here, as part of a longer visit to North East England. There's a comfortable lounge with a huge bookcase full of all kinds of books. The range... More

We enjoyed three nights in this comfortable, lovely old house in a beautiful setting. Elaine was a kind and hospitable hostess. Our room was spacious and beautiful with a panoramic view of the countryside. It had a separate private bathroom. The tasty breakfast kept us going until supper time. The only aspect of our visit that we didn't enjoy was... More

It is difficult to find superlatives to portray the the sheer quality that a stay at Hill On The Wall provides. I first stayed here in 2005 when I walked the Hadrian's Wall footpath. That was with a bunch of mates but this time I was there with my Girlfriend. We had the room called Caligula's Chamber. It was super... More
