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.
