We stayed at the Shore Gate House B&B at the end of our Hadrian's Wall trek. My husband had caught a cold and was feeling miserable as we arrived. We were welcomed to our room early so that he could rest, and Alan and Theresa were warm and solicitous. Our room was spacious and pretty with a great view of...

Last stop on the path of Hadrian's wall for us . . what a welcome sight that sign was! Sleeping with the windows open and listening to the pounding waves as the tide came in was SLEEP HEAVEN! The bed's were awesome, the view AMAZING (across the water to Scotland). The food was scrumptious . . we couldn't have asked...

After days of long walks you want a place you can relax, put up your feet and enjoy the surroundings. I found this at the Shore Gate House, where I got a very warm and friendly welcome. My room was on the top floor, with a smashing sea view. The bed was extremely comfortable and the ensuite bathroom had everything...

Nice rooms with remodeled and updated fixtures in what was once an old corn mill. Great views of Solway firth via large window. Excellent location in a small village and a short walk to the Kings Arms pub.

Writing this review a month or two after my travels prevents me from remembering the names of our hosts[apologies] but they were exceptional. We [a group of 5 tired 55year olds] were greeted with a smiling face and sincere concern for our well being after our long walk. Our rooms all had their own charm. One looked out over the...

This was our final B&B on our Hadrians Wall walk, and it was grand. It is in a lovingly restores mill, and has a great view of the water. Bowness is a really charming village, with a great pub and historic buildings. They helped coordinate our ride back to Carlisle which was great. The sunrise from the window facing the...

My wife booked a night at the Shore Gate as a launch point for our walk of Hadrians Wall. Theresa greeted us on our arrival and made us feel very welcome telling us all about Bowness and a little about the walk. The room was lovely with a spectacular view over the Solway Firth and Alan, her partner, cooked a...

This place gave me a room which overlooked the Solway. I watched the tide come in, the sun set, and the sun rise. It was breath-taking. Breakfast was excellent, and the place was quiet and friendly. Highly recommend.

Teresa was extremely welcoming and hospitable, once settled in our room we were welcomed with a fresh pot of tea and biscuits in the secret garden with a beautiful view, fantastic accommodation, very comfortable bed, a lovely room and facilities with comprehensive information folder, and an excellent breakfast cooked by Alan to start our walk – a first class stay...

We completed our little Hadrian's Wall exploration on a real high - charming hosts, great facilities, superb location. Admittedly we had the top room (in our opinion) with full panoramic view of the very scenic Solway Firth, but the whole ambience was wonderful. The owners are very good hosts, the rooms lack for nothing and the "full English" breakfast was...
