We just wanted to thank you for our recent stay at Brookside Villa. You have certainly earned your 'Walkers Welcome' award. We arrived very wet and tired having walked 20 miles, the latter part in pouring rain. We appreciated the warm welcome and encouragement to come in and take our wet things off, rather than do that on the doorstep which we would normally do. Our room was beautifully decorated (you clearly have good taste in colour and furnishings) and the good sized bathroom with lashings of hot water was just what we needed. We arrived too late to order a meal for our first night, but ate in on our second night. You are a great cook and the food, whether at breakfast or for the evening meal was superb - better than many restaurants and definitely the best on The Wall. Thank you for not minding when we rearranged your dining room on our second night so we could enjoy our meal socially with the two other couples who were also staying at Brookside Villa. The social aspect of shared experiences and talking together in the lounge after the meal really added to our holiday experience

- 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.
