The location has great access to Hadrian's Wall. Being a working sheep farm, there were plenty of flies. The bathroom was quite roomy and breakfast was more than adequate. Wi-Fi was difficult to pick up in our room.

Gibbs Hill is about 2.5 miles walk north of Hadrian's Wall, where Val has converted an old farm building to a bunkhouse. Val advised me to eat first at Twice Brewed before walking back up to Steel Rigg and then down to the farm. After a long day, I couldn't face that walk, so phoned to ask for a lift,... More

The quality of the location, overlooking the most scenic portion of Hadrian's Wall, is surpassed only by Val's hospitality. Short drive to the Wall, Housesteads, Vindolanda or Twice Brewed Inn. Great English breakfast. Ask for the apple and blueberry porridge.

We walked to Gibbs from Hadrians wall without realising Val, the charming owner, offers a free lift for the two mile hike. This very generous offer was taken up by us on our onward journey saving us plenty of time and fatigue. The accommodation could not be faulted and with a superb breakfast, this is an excellent place to stay.

This farm house was one of our overnight stays on Hadrians Wall Path. We stopped at Twice Brewed Inn and then we were picked up by one of the owners after our evening meal. We were taken to a charming farm house in the middle of fields. Sheep, cats and other animals habitate the surroundings and gives the farm a... More

I stayed here whilst walking Hadrians Wall. The owner is very helpful, picked me up from the pub after I had finished the walk then drove me back to the walk the following morning.

The farm is very remote, but Val does a great job of ferrying everyone to and from Hadrian's wall path and the pub . The accommodation is simple, but clean. We were asked to be sparing with the hot water as there were 6 of us. This was disappointing as 2 of the group were looking forward to a good... More

The owner picked me up from the pub which is about a mile away from the farm, also got dropped back onto the Hadrian's Wall Path in the morning which is a great service. Val is very welcoming and friendly. Room was comfortable and very clean. Well recommended.
