Troll my profile and you will find that I very seldom hand out 5 star reviews. In order to earn that 5th star from me the lodging needs to surprise and delight me. Brookside Villa did just that. After a long wet day of hiking Hadrian's wall Brookside offered a warm comfortable room and a fantastic dinner. Her dinners are...

She has thought everything through it great detail. Walkers arriving with muddy boots (& dogs) are welcomed into the practical entrance hall where there is a bench, boot...

A great place to stay just off the Hadrians Wall walk and one of the warmest welcomes your likely to receive. It felt like a home away from home with a definite country atmosphere. Denise was having a night off cooking but organised food on our behalf. She has a very handy bar which saved us a 10 min trek...

We stayed as a walking group and this was the best breakfast all week (5 hotels/B&Bs). The rooms are absolutely spotless and very comfortable. Denise and her hubby were just so lovely, helpful and kind to us despite being soggy and dirty after a day walking in wind and rain. The torch on the key is a brilliant touch as...

This is a well appointed, easy-to-find property on the west side of the village of Gilsland. The en suite room was quiet and comfortable. The full English breakfast was excellent. In addition the property has a well-stocked honesty bar. Denise is a charming hostess.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Award-winning B&B, combining style and elegance with tradition, at the heart of Hadrian's Wall Trail, in a Victorian villa set in a peaceful hamlet outside Gilsland village. 5 bright, fresh bedrooms all with contemporary, compact bathrooms. Rooms differ in size and shape, though even the smaller has a 5' (queen) bed, others range from 6' (king) to 6'6" (super-king). Enjoy a glass of wine or a local ale in the garden with great views toward Hadrian's Wall or in the comfortable lounge in front of a log fire. Then enjoy an exquisite home-cooked dinner in our lovely dining room. Designed with walkers and cyclists in mind, we are less than 10 minutes walk from the Trail. We provide packed lunches, drying room, boot and cycle racks, overnight laundry - and everything else you might need on your walking or cycling holiday. ... more   less
