We are situated on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, with stunning views above the village of Gilsland. One of only two villages along the World Heritage Site of the Roman Wall. A great base for exploring the wall, with Roman sites and forts minutes away. Then back to our peaceful retreat....We are situated on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, with stunning views above the village of Gilsland.

Interaction with guests
We like to meet our guests when they arrive and show them around the cottage to help familiarise them with utilities and what's available. A warm welcome is so important, and we are happy to be available if our guests wish. It is so helpful to have someone recommend places to visit and what is special about our area. That is where we come in ! Looking forward to seeing you soon.

About the neighbourhood
Fantastic base to really explore Hadrian's Wall and the Northumberland National Park, England. An area of outstanding beauty and diversity, whilst still having the luxury of fewer tourists. Within one hour drive to The English Lake District, Scotland & the Northumberland Coast. Whilst closer to home steeped in history, we have Hadrian's Wall with some amazing forts, Roman sites & museums. Local to these parts the Border Reiver's from 1600's, tales of treachery, misfortune & feuding families. Our cottage dates back to these unforgiving times, and is built typically in Bastle House style, from the 1600's. You will be able to enjoy the rural idyll on our 500 acre farm, where you can wander and unwind.
Getting around
Because we are very rural the best way to explore ideally is by car, then you can stop off at your leisure. The nearest railway station is Haltwhistle, which can get you to Newcastle or Carlisle and stops in- between. We have the AD122 bus which travels along Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland, between April & October. Stopping at all the major Roman sites.
