Access information

The Victorian houses sits atop a small hill with a total 7 steps and a slope to reach the front door.  All rooms are via a staircase to the 1st and 2nd floors.  The style and position of the house means that we are unable to offer the hospitality we would wish to afford to guests with moderate to severe mobility issues.

Whilst we have no specialist equipment, our natural hospitality means that guests with sight or hearing difficulties are very welcome and will be offered help such as large print info, high-wattage lights, care with communication to facilitate lip-reading, etc. 

Please always advise us of any impairment which may make it difficult for you to respond in an emergency situation


Road directions

Gilsland is on the B6318, off the A69 about midway between Brampton and Haltwhistle.

Beware! There are a number of turns signposted Gilsland. Be sure to take DENTON GILSLAND 2 miles RAF SPADEADAM. Cross the railway at a level crossing. At the village outskirts follow the road as it swings to the left, past a garage (no fuel/yellow trucks), cross bridge over the River Irthing. 

Take 1st left signed Birdoswald. Brookside Villa is the 1st house on the right. Pull onto small guest parking area just below the house. 

USING SATNAV??  Be wary it can lead you astray - our post code covers an area of approx 1 square mile.

 Already on the B6318???  From, say, Lanercost Priory to the west of us, follow the road toward Gilsland - go past Birdoswald Fort,  turn right at the T-junction and you will find us under a mile along the road on the right.

From, say, Housesteads to the east, follow the B6318 through Greenhead and Gilsland to the T-junction at the Bridge Inn, turn right, then 1st left and we are the 1st house on the left.

Enjoyable stay


Kemarg, Nottingham
We stayed for one night whilst walking Hadrian's Wall. The proprietor is very friendly and showed us the facilities. There is a lounge with an honesty bar. The room was good as was the dinner and breakfast. A very enjoyable stay.

Wonderful Long Weekend


Verity S,
My mum and I stayed with my dog Rudy for 4 nights at Brookside Villa and had a really lovely time. Denise and Jerry couldn't do enough to help us, especially with drop-offs to points on the wall, and making dinner bookings for us. They made our 3 days walking very easy and enjoyable. We had packed lunches each day which were perfect and very easy to organise. Breakfast was consistently delicious, and we had dinner on one night which was also fantastic (fish pie and lamb rump). The sitting room is a great place to relax and the honesty system of getting your drinks is a great idea. We'd love to return when we are back in the area. Thank you, Verity & Nicky

Welcoming, efficient and good night’s sleep


Julian H,
One night stay after 20mi on Hadrian’s Wall with dog. Very welcoming and when local pub had no chef, promptly stepped in with well judged meal. Hospitable host and relaxed atmosphere made me and my dog very welcome after a long day ... generous and quality breakfast set me up for the next day.

Superb B&B - faultless


chippy_chips, York, United Kingdom
Stayed here as a base to walk a section of Hadrian’s wall. Absolutely top notch from start to finish! Perfect hospitality from the owner throughout, including giving us a lift to our walking start point, and booking our evening meal for us the the Samson Inn. Comfy rooms, cracking breakfast, and even an honesty bar (unfortunately didn’t get the chance to use!) Highly recommended.

Top-notch Hospitality


Roseann1047, PHX
I have stayed at a number of B & B’s in England and the Brookside Villa is one of the best. The hostess Denise was very accommodating in every way. She met me and my traveling companion at the train station to take us to the Villa and returned us there in three days for our return trip. This service was very appreciated since we did not have other transportation and did not want the hassle of finding taxi service. She provided a sack lunch for us each day as we hiked Hadrian’s Wall and started us out each day before our hike with a delicious breakfast. Our rooms were clean and nicely appointed with tea service, additional towels, and other small touches. Denise was also very supportive in helping us determine our hiking plans each day. I would definitely recommend the Brookside Villa for a stay near Hadrian’s Wall.
