Good B&B that is aimed at bikes riders & trekkers. Room and bathroom are good size. Shoes are to be left at the front door! WiFi is fair. Breakfast will not disappoint. Check in is not before 4.00pm. If you are finishing a Hadrian's Wall walk in this area, suggest you reconsider stopping at Gilsland. There is a 600 meter... More

OK these folks may not have liked me but... We suggest that you leave your muddy, sheep-doo-doo'd hiking boots in the porch, rather than sleep with them by your bed! And we have a boot-cleaning station for the REALLY bad boots! And I'm sorry that Gilsland couldn't be closer to Windemere - but that's geography for you! And this couple... More

Denise, the owner, is a most enjoyable and welcoming hostess, and an excellent cook. Dinner (optional) is served in the small dining area; a menu offers several choices, but there are also two pubs in town if you prefer to explore. Our double room was small but comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was excellent. I would advise hikers to take advantage... More

We had an awesome stay at Brookside! Denise and staff spoiled us. We thoroughly enjoyed it; the room, the food, the gardens, everything made for a great adventure for us. The Trail Walker's Package fit our itinerary perfectly, which was 4 nights stay and hike each day on Hadrian's Wall path. Thanks also to Gerry for driving us to and... More

Stayed here for one night on the nearby Hadrian's Wall walk. A group of six of us were treated to an excellent supper in a very pleasant space. First rate breakfast and a spacious front room to relax in. All very welcoming.

Denise and Gerry went out of their way to make sure our stay was exactly to our liking. Every meal was fantastic. The bedrooms were spacious, cheery and comfortable--with all the conveniences we craved along our walk of Hadrian's Wall. The garden Gerry reclaimed overlooking the brook was a wonderful hide-away for sipping our cocktails and watching the summer sun... More

Very warm welcome, comfortable room, lovely property, and great night's sleep. Add to this one of the most delicious lamb dinners we have had in a long while, and we could not have asked for anything more! Would very happily stay again. Highly recommended.

On arrival we were given tea and cakes after being shown to our spacious and comfortable room. Everything is new and well presented. Our breakfast was abundant and tasty. We were on a walking holiday so arrived tired and in need of tlc which we received in abundance.

As a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenage boys) on our way back down from the Highlands, we stayed here for one night. The B&B was easy to find, and only 15-20 mins from the motorway. Our 4 bed room was spotless, comfortable and had plenty of space. Comfortable beds, good wifi connection, TV worked fine and the tea,... More

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
