In an outstanding hilltop location overlooking the Irthing Valley and just 300 yards from the Hadrian's Wall National Trail at Birdoswald in Cumbria, this listed 16th century fortified farmhouse, or 'bastle', has three bed and breakfast guest rooms available.
All bedrooms are spacious and ensuite or with a private bathroom and Wi-Fi Internet .
There is a comfortable lounge and library for guests.
With 1 acre of gardens and ample parking we provide comfort and a warm welcome for all who visit this historic and beautiful Scottish Borders area on the edge of Northumberland.
Hill on the Wall is what it says - almost exactly on the famous Roman Wall built nearly 2000 years ago - about 300 yards walk actually. Step outside our front door onto the terrace and gardens and immediately you are amongst some of the most breathtaking natural surroundings in the country.
Located on the border of Cumbria and Northumberland, we are ideally situated for visiting Hadrian's Wall, historic Carlisle and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB).
A bit of history about the house...An Act of Parliament in 1555 made it compulsory for everyone living in the twenty mile wide Border Zone to build their own defences against reivers and cross-border raiders. Not everyone complied but the owners of 'The Hill' did. In 1595 this 'bastle' was built and while it has all the comforts of the 21st century, its original characteristics have been tastefully retained.
When you have had enough of the hustle and bustle of the busier tourist spots, mark the end of a perfect day by unwinding back at Hill on the Wall with tea and home made cake in the garden and watch the sunset over the North Pennines and the Lakeland fells beyond.
Luxurious accommodation served by Elaine and Dick who love their job and do it uncompromisingly well! We are open most of the year from 1st March to 30th November so any time spent with us will be remembered for time spent somewhere very special indeed.
A commitment to quality with a personal touch. We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
