Thank you Elaine for a lovely stay - we enjoyed everything about the Hill on the Wall. Elaine, with the help of Ian, are extremely welcoming hosts - nothing seems to be too much trouble. Elaine has put much thought into the service she provides, I have never seen so much choice of drinks in a room! The tea and cake on arrival was a lovely touch, it was nice to chat and hear about your move to the north. Ian did a splendid job at breakfast too - I know we are terribly fussy about the cooking of our eggs, and this point was duly noted. The breakfast choices were extremely good, we had no problem with selecting from the menu the night before. On leaving we took Ian's advice and had a trip into Carlisle to the Tullie House museum which we enjoyed very much. There is so much to do in the area, we will definitely return, (even though we are just over an hour away) I was a little baffled at some of the previous negative reviews, personally I would say there was nothing to fault at all. The house is beautifully decorated and full of character, it really is a lovely place to stay.
