We stayed at bush nook and had a fantastic time set in beautiful countryside. Malcolm couldn't have been more helpful even offering to get up and do breakfast before we needed to leave at 6:30. We'll be returning as soon as we can get time off work. We've never met such a considerate host during any of our times away.... More

Looking for a short getaway from city life, my partner and I spent a night at Bush Nook in November. On arrival, we were welcomed by Malcolm and Jenny, who showed us around and to our room, and made us feel at home immediately by being so friendly. As the summer season was over, Bush Nook was very quiet with... More

Our group was booked here through Hadrian's Wall Ltd. (also highly recommended) We stayed there on the night of May 20. We had such fun with Malcolm and Jenny, the food was wonderful, breakfast amazing. Malcolm joined our group in some games in the sunroom in the evening.

I was welcomed by Malcolm and promptly offered tea or coffee. Later he took me in to the village pub for dinner and came back and picked me up afterward. The room was small, but charming, and had everything I needed for a good night. A nice feature was the big,deep tub. I enjoyed my night here, but I think... More

Bush Nook is located in the countryside close to Hadrian's Wall and a couple of minutes drive from the small village of Gilsland. It's a lovely farm house with quite a few rooms, all of which seemed pretty good. What set this B&B apart from everywhere else we stayed during this trip (throughout the UK) was the layout of the...

I was nervous coming to a family B&B alone as a solo travel but I felt so at home here. Malcolm is so friendly and even drove me out to the Roman Army museum, picked me up from the town, and drove me to the train station when I left. All of the facilities are really great and the breakfast... More

Malcolm the owner is ever so friendly and nothing was too much trouble, even taking us to the local pub for a meal and driving us the following morning to the Hadrian's wall path which was great. The place itself is gorgeous and the rooms were immaculate and very modern. Breakfast was second to none and was plentiful. This place... More

Great thanks to Malcolm, the owner. He was very nice and helpful. He picked us up and drove us to Brampton.
