About Bush Nook Guest House...


Experience the wildness, freshness, culture and two millennium of history.

Bush Nook Guest House situated within the wonderful Hadrian’s Wall countryside, overlooking Birdoswald Roman Fort and the River Irthing valley at Gilsland, with panoramic views east to Northumberland National Park, Keilder Forest and north over the “debatable land” of Reiver history to the Scottish Lowlands.

The area around Bush Nook has numerous opportunities to be active, with excellent walking & cycling routes to suit all abilities. The openness of the countryside, peacefulness, and fresh air enable those wishing to have a restful holiday to be equally contented.

The farm stead was originally part of the estate held in trust for the Earl of Carlisle in the Barony of "Guilsland". Built in 1760 with further additions in 1811 and 1849, the house and its outbuildings are stone built in traditional farmhouse style, and like most properties in the area, it was built using stones "borrowed" from the nearby Hadrian's Wall fortifications.

Close to an exceptional section of the best preserved original stone ramparts on Hadrian's Wall, the house is situated right on the Cumbria / Northumberland boundary, halfway between the towns of Haltwhistle and Brampton.

Only 800 meters from the main A69 road we are ideally situated to explore this beautiful scenic part of the North of England, including the North Pennines ANOB, Eden Valley and Alllendale. We are easily accessible to Carlisle and the M6 to the West, Newcastle and the A1 to the East.

We have comfortably furnished quality bed and breakfast accommodation available, all en-suite and most with open beamed ceilings.

For those of you wishing to be self-sufficient, we have a sympathetically converted, superbly equipped self-catering holiday cottage in the Hay Barn, sleeping two people, with exceptional space and atmosphere. We can also offer an additional ensuite room in the barn to make Drumannon Cottage an ideal 4 person or family unit for a cost-effective holiday break.

“Our walkers love staying at Bushnook Guesthouse in Cumbria. We know this because our walkers tell us all about it. From the moment they step through the door, they receive a warm welcome and are made to feel right at home. England’s reputation for hospitality is built on people such as Malcolm and it is our pleasure to work with such a fine Guesthouse owner.” Hillwalk Tours - Hiking Hadrian's Wall Path

Guest Reviews:


"Myself and a group of fellow Hadrians Wall walkers stayed at Bush Nook and speaking for all we were massively impressed with the quality of the house, the food and the hot tub. Malcolm and Jenny were perfect hosts who were happy to supply all we needed."
