The Hill on The Wall

Gilsland, Brampton, Cumbria


The Hill on The Wall is a unique B&B within half a mile of the Hadrian’s Wall National Trail. Located near Gilsland on the Cumbria/Northumberland border, we are the perfect place to escape from the pressures of modern life.

Our Grade II Listed building was originally built as a fortified "bastle" farmhouse in 1595, nestled on a stunning hilltop location overlooking Hadrian’s Wall. We now offer luxurious accommodation in a breathtaking countryside location.
