Hadrian's Wall Hadrian's Wall

Gilsland is a small village that straddles the border between Cumbria and Northumberland, with most of its houses in Northumberland. It is situated on Hadrian’s Wall, and is ideal for exploring the North Pennines, Eden Valley and the Scottish Borders.

The River Irthing rises in the hills around Paddaburn Moor in Border Forest Park, and for the first 15 miles of its journey south it defines the border between Northumberland and Cumbria. At Butterburn, the river flows over the ten-metre high Crammell Linn waterfall and into a sandstone gorge. After flowing through Gilsland, its course as it turns west is lined with sites from Roman Britain, including Birdoswald Fort, at the top of the steep gorge carved out by the river.

Just north of the village is Gilsland Hall Hotel, much frequented in the summer on account of its beautiful scenery, and the chalybeate and sulphur springs that issue from the rocks. The building, originally known as the Shaws, was rebuilt by George Gill Mounsey in 1865.

Gilsland Hall Hotel

Gilsland Hall Hotel sits 700 feet above sea level, commanding spectacular views over the Cumbrian countryside.  The hotel has 140 acres of Park and Woodland with many scenic walks.

Hadrian’s Wall can be found nearby, and further afield we have easy access to historic towns of Hexham and Carlisle, Gretna Green and the Lake District.

All bedrooms are en-suite with television, tea/coffee making facilities. We have an Orangery Cafe Bar that serves a range of snacks and drinks, or you could enjoy a cream tea. We also have the Galloway’s Bar which is open for Lunches and Evening meals.

Gilsland Hall is renowned for its extensive entertainment programme and calls upon a wide range of artistes and guest entertainers for dancing.
