The property

A ground floor, one-bedroom holiday apartment, part of a larger barn conversion, on the fringes of the pretty, rural village of Gilsland near Haltwhistle, in Hadrian's Wall Country.

This apartment is well appointed and tastefully decorated, and provides an ideal romantic base to walk stretches of Hadrian's Wall.

Roman Vindolanda, famous for the Roman parchment letters and settlement reconstruction, is within 10 miles, Housesteads Roman Fort is only a 15 minute car journey away while 14th century Thirlwall Castle, built of Roman stone, is nearby.

The countryside is stunning, with wide panoramic views of the Roman wall, which follows the contours of the Whin Sill escarpment, as well as numerous walks, and the remains of the Roman river crossing at Willowford.

This apartment is ideal for those wishing to explore further tracts of the Roman wall, the North Pennines, Eden Valley or the Scottish Borders.

About the location


Haltwhistle 6 miles; Brampton 9 miles.

Gilsland is a small village with two pubs and a tea room on the Northumberland, Cumbria border. 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 Vindolanda, famous for the Roman parchment letters and settlement reconstruction. There are numerous castle ruins close by, including Blenkinsopp, Thirlwall, Bellister and Bewcastle, and 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.
