The Experience

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.

Elaines accommodation has been included in the Good Hotel Guide for 2020 and handpicked for Britains Finest,

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.

Hill on the wall provides a truly excellent Bed and Breakfast experience in the heart the Hadrian’s Wall Path walk. With 3 spacious, and luxuirously furnished en-suite rooms, you can be sure that your stay here will be nothing but relaxing.

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. Yet, you will turn up at the door, ready to shower, relax, and enjoy the wonderful wood burner in the lounge, along with the guest library.
