About the location

Gilsland

Haltwhistle 6 miles; Brampton 9 miles.

Gilsland is a small village with most of its houses in Northumberland, but the edges spilling over into Cumbria, and is home to a country inn. It is situated on Hadrian's Wall, and is ideal for exploring the north Pennines, Eden Valley, the Scottish Borders and even as far south west as the Lake District National Park. Gilsland lies within 10 miles of Housesteads Roman Fort and Vindalanda, famous for the Roman parchment letters and settlement reconstruction. There are numerous castle ruins close by including Blenkinsopp, Thirlwall, Bellister and Bewcastle. The pretty market town of Brampton is within a 15 minute drive and Carlisle is just 30 minutes away. For a great day trip, visit the Lake District National Park, or spend a day in Cumbria. The scenery in this area is stunning, with wide panoramic vistas looking out on the Roman Wall which follows the Whin Sill escarpment, making this quiet corner of England a walker's and cyclist's delight.

The peace and quiet was wonderful and the location was ideal for walking and relaxing.

Mrs Hey, Shipley, May 2013

The cottage was spotlessly clean and, although very compact, also very comfortable - very much home from home. Little touches, eg memory foam mattress and a bottle of wine, added to the welcome.Thank you for a lovely stay.

Ms Ulyatt, Mansfield, March 2013

It was a small and cosy cottage-flat. The bed was particularly comfortable. It was peaceful. There was room to do some yoga and meditation in the lounge.

Ms Churchill, Sheffield, October 2012

Setting was wonderful. Bibra was very well equipped, well laid out and clean and tidy. Fantastic mattress, felt well rested. The complementary wine was a lovely touch. It was literally a case of walk in, unpack, ready to roll. A great base for sightseeing. A proper home from home, thank you.

Mrs Hoskins, Catterick Garrison, August 2012
