  • "This is the 4th time we’ve stayed at this property and we love it."

    Scenic views, excellent for dog walks and historic sites on the doorstep.

  • "Hadrian's View is in a stunning location, literally a couple of hundred metres from Hadrians Wall."

    It commands outstanding and glorious views of the surrounding countryside and must be wonderful in summer. Unfortunately the weather was against us and the winding roads on the approach to Banks from Brampton mean that driving with care is a must! Even with very wet weather the views were amazing. We found the kitchen to be very cold and did not realise that there was a heater there! It would be good to point this out to winter visitors. Otherwise the accommodation is very beautiful and roomy. We had a little trouble finding the property in the dark, and more detailed instructions on how to find the property would be helpful - though Banks is a small hamlet and it is not possible to really get lost. Lanercost Priory is very close. I cannot imagine a better location for a stay in Cumbria near to "the Wall" - wonderful! The lady owner provided a lovely plate of home made jam and cream scones, a bottle of white wine and shortbread biscuits on our arrival - the scones in particular were delicious! Though we were not on holiday we enjoyed our stay at Hadrian's View and would highly recommend the property to anyone who appreciates the beautiful scenery of Hadrian's Wall country!

    It’s located in a very picturesque village but within a few miles of Brampton which is an interesting town for a day’s exploring, plus of course all the local Roman sites are within easy reach. Our host made us feel very welcome. All in all a great few days

    Great rural location with super views and nice walks from front door. As stated by others, nice welcome from owners with homemade scones and bottle wine in fridge. Quality smart TV in lounge which is great for evenings and wet days. Really good internet for such a remote location - made the grandchildren happy! Overall highly recommended and would book again.

    Elizabeth the owner was so friendly and welcoming and the fresh scones were a lovely touch. The town of Brampton was only a 10 minute drive with a good selection of shops and takeaways and there are plenty of village pubs in the local area if you fancy a meal out in the evening. My whole family loved our week here, it was a perfect staycation.

  • "The property is fantastic, so clean, well equipped and had everything we needed."

    The views are superb across the hills and open countryside. The real fire is such a bonus which we made the most of each night. As there were only 2 of us, we only used the double room, but the bed and bedding were so comfortable and we slept so well. Booking and access to the property was so easy and efficient and the owner was on hand for any queries. Loved the welcome pack which was gratefully received. Would definitely recommend staying at the property.

About the location


Carlisle 10 miles.

The market town of Brampton is the ideal base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall. The town boasts a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border reivers from Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings, plus bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton. In the centre of the town is Moot Hall, which was built in 1817, and now houses the Tourist Information Centre, and there is a large motte to the east of the town, which is 135 feet high and has the statue of the 7th Earl of Carlisle on it. A few miles outside Brampton is Talkin Tarn Country Park. It covers 120 acres of farmland and woodland, 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs. Two miles away is Gelt Woods, which is an ancient woodland and RSPB nature reserve and has the River Gelt running through it. Brampton is a wonderful base for exploring this historic and scenic area.
