Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Elaine Packer has thought of every comfort’ at her ‘superb’ Georgian farmhouse overlooking Hadrian’s Wall, near Birdoswald. Sit down to tea and home-made cake beside the drawing room fire or in the ‘beautiful’ walled garden when you arrive at the B&B. Afterward, unpack in one of the traditionally decorated bedrooms, each ‘sumptuously styled’ and stocked with glossy magazines, cafetière coffee, a biscuit barrel and chocolates. ‘Shutters closed, I slept in perfect peace.’ ‘Delicious’ home-cooked Northumbrian breakfasts, ordered the night before, are served in ‘gigantic portions’ – ideal fuel for hikers and bikers of any stripe. Packed lunches available (£6). 1 mile W of Gilsland on the B6318.

Guest comments

'Superb Georgian house with French doors into beautiful walled garden on Hadrians Wall. Elaine Packer has thought of every comfort from chocolates and all manner of teas in the room to sumptuous decoration and fabrics in all the rooms. The breakfast is the best I have had in a B and B. Delicious range of home cooked food with gigantic portions!! I slept like a log in the bed - shutters closed- perfect peace! ' - Tessa Allen - May, 2016
