I stayed at Shore Gate House B & B the night before I started my Hadrians Wall Walk. We were welcomed by Alan the host who kindly showed us to our room and explained how things worked. We took the option of a full cooked breakfast for the morning but the only option he gave us was "Do you want...

Stayed at the end of our Hadrian's Wall walk. Nice greeting on arrival and given all details of room and local area. Theresa arranged for taxi in the morning and a lift to and from the local pub in next village for dinner. Nothing was too much trouble.

By far the best view of any room on my trip. Worth the money alone. Kept the blinds open as I fell asleep, and there was the view of the Solway firth again next morning. I could have moved in. Chatty, friendly hostess. She even tumble dried my smalls! Comfy room. No bath, but shower was good. Largest TV of...

We stayed here recently after finishing Hadrians Wall walk and could not have asked for a more friendly, welcoming and beautiful place to stay. Theresa and Alan were fantastic and obviously love what they do. Thanks!

A lovely, comfortable room with beautiful views across the estuary. Alan and Theresa were gracious and generous hosts offering a warm welcome. They also very kindly allowed us to leave our car in a safe place whilst we completed the trail. First class B&B... would thoroughly recommend to anyone starting (or finishing) the Hadrian's Wall trail.

We had a room with a fantastic view over the water way. Our hosts were very friendly, helpful and very welcoming. They were proud of the b&b and it certainly showed in the presentation of the rooms and the breakfast areas. Would definitely recommend to others!

A great place to stay...especially for Hadrian's Wall Path walkers! The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The room we had could not be faulted - it even had a great view of the first half mile of the path. We were booked into a nearby pub for an evening meal and for breakfast we had some very good muesli...

Shore Gate House provided us with an excellent overnight stay at the end of our Hadrians Wall walk. This B & B typifies the quaintness of Bowness on Solway and we had an amazing room with stunning views across the Solway Firth.
