Welcome to West Nichold

Perched above Gilsland village the Heart of Hadrian's Wall country, sits West Nichold cottage, with spectacular views stretching from Hadrian's Wall, to the Lake District Fells & Scotland.

This is the perfect base to walk Hadrian's Wall, with Roman forts just minutes away, and to explore peaceful Northumberland, with quiet open roads and rolling countryside. The cottage is situated on our 500 acre farm at Wardrew.

  • Luxury self-catering accommodation for up to 8
  • Carefully retained original features with all modern facilities provided

The cottage which dates back to the 1600's was a fortified dwelling, built in typical Bastle House style, and has been painstakingly restored and converted.

We have retained many original features, gnarled oak beams, arrow slit windows, sark boarded ceilings and hayloft steps.

Summer at West Nichold

Everything is looking so lush & green, lambing is now over & the cows are enjoying being out in the meadows. We've got some Wagtails nesting at the cottage, and the Hares regularly pay a visit. Meander round the farm, where it is quiet & peaceful, for those undisturbed walks. Or stretch those legs with some fantastic walking along Hadrian's Wall, then head back, unwind, put your feet up with a glass & a good book. Give it a try - you don't know what you're missing!
