Willowford Farm

Willowford Farm B&B, in Gilsland has a unique location on one of the longest unbroken stretches of Hadrian's Wall still remaining.

In 2007 we converted one of the farm byres into 5 en-suite bedrooms and a dining room - what had been the milking parlour, cart house, grain store and pig holes became guest rooms! Of course, they are done to a very high standard and provide an ideal balance of comfort and facilities. We have range of single, twin, double and family rooms.

They are also full of character with exposed wooden beams, local Westmorland slate flooring and antique furniture.

Our rooms are very energy efficient as well, using underfloor heating and being well insulated with Thermafleece sheep's wool.

Why not relax in our spacious, comfortable rooms with a cup of Fairtrade tea, coffee, hot chocolate or fruit tea and then indulge in a hot bath or shower using our handmade soaps - perfect after a long day on the road.

Eat well

Breakfast is served in our beautiful dining room where you can enjoy a choice of cereals, fresh fruit, toasted homemade bread and a full cooked breakfast including organic bacon and sausages and our own free-range eggs cooked to order.

Evening meals are available in the local pub which serves delicious home made food and real ales and is just a short walk or ride away (less than 1 mile).

Hadrians Wall

When you stay at Willowford Farm, Hadrian's Wall starts on the doorstep.

Initially, it is believed that the Wall from Willowford westwards was built of turf. Hadrian ordered it to be rebuilt in stone in AD122 and it stood firm for around 300 years until the fall of Rome. After that it fell into ruin, helped by looters taking the dressed stone to build farms and houses. Over time the Wall collapsed into more of a mound that was slowly covered with earth and vegetation. Nearly 1600 years later the mound at Willowford Farm was excavated to reveal one of the longest unbroken stretches of Hadrian's Wall remaining, which at places still stands 8ft high and includes the remains of two turrets.
