Hill on the Wall, in Gildland, is a luxury guest house run by the Elaine Packer. This grade 2 listed Georgian Farmhouse overlooks the wall, close to Brioswald, and makes an excellent stop, should you decide to stay a night or two in Gilsland.
The history of the property dates back to 1595, when it was built as a fortified “bastle” farmhouse, overlooking Hadrian’s Wall.
It’s only natural then that the accommodation retains its charm, and historic intricacies through excellent furnishing and thorough maintenance and upkeep.

Yet despite the luxury of Hill on the Wall, Elaine welcomes bikers and hikers with open arms. Yes, you can spend your day out on the hill, getting muddy like a two-year-old with a large puddle.
