THE HILL ON THE WALL
BED AND BREAKFAST IN BRAMPTON, CUMBRIA
Located within half a mile of the Hadrian's Wall National Trail, Hill on the Wall is a unique B&B establishment on the Cumbria/Northumberland border and at the heart of Hadrian's Wall and Reivers country. The property is a Grade 2 listed building and has been part of the historic landscape since it was built as a fortified "bastle" farmhouse in 1595, on an outstanding hilltop location overlooking Hadrian's Wall. We are open most of the year from 1st March to 30th November.
