It was such a good feeling to cycle down to this wonderful B&B after a long days cycle - it was dark. We arrived late but in so many ways Elaine could not have made our stay more relaxing and enjoyable. Too late to eat in Gilsland, Elaine said that we could eat our fish and chips in her dining...

the best accommodation on the entire Hadrains wall route. A charming lady who welcomes you with a pot of tea and homemade cake. A breakfast that is truly stunning, served by the most charming chef. The beds are sumptuous and decor is truly wonderful. This place deserves to be fully booked forever.

What a wonderful place to stay. Truly sits on a hill a short walk from the center of Gilsland. Gracious hosts. Wonderfully warm welcome. Views can't be beat. Breakfast is one of the best. Very comfortable and charming rooms. Take a walk down the hall to read the room names - no room numbers here!

We were met with tea and a wonderful cake in the sitting room, or rather living room, off our room. There is an extensive library of books to borrow and comfortable chairs in which to enjoy them. Breakfast was the usual hot English breakfast, but of the best quality. The innkeeper was kind enough to drop us in the village...

We stayed here one night, B&B. It is a lovely oldie-worldy place with quaint rooms and lovely furniture. We were made welcome with a pot of tea and delicious cake on arrival. Evening meal was taken at a pub in the village, 20 minutes walk away down the country lane. The room was very comfortable and had all we needed,...

My brother and I stayed here whilst walking the Hadrian's Wall Trail. The guide book said it was a great place to stay, and the guide book was 100% correct. After a days walking we arrived early but were welcomed by Elaine and Dick, served tea, had our wet clothes and boots dried and were shown to a beautiful luxurious...
