Bibra is a single-storey, cosy cottage situated on the fringes of the village of Gilsland, straddling the Northumberland, Cumbria border. The cottage sleeps two people in its double bedroom, and also has a bathroom, a compact kitchen and a cosy sitting and dining room. Outside the cottage there is off road parking for one car, and a shared patio area. Surrounded by stunning countryside, and located on Hadrian's Wall, Bibra is a perfect cottage for a romantic escape.


This self catering cottage felt like a home away from home - a very welcome surprise as some self catering cottages are very sparse and not as homely but Bibra was absolutely lovely and very well priced. Countryside location was as expected.
Mr Anderson

A lovely little Cottage. Excellent location for exploring the area.
Miss Palmer

We loved everything about our holiday. The cottage was lovely, the local area was beautiful and the locals are friendly.
Miss Jones

The cottage was in an idyllic setting providing you like the peace and quiet - we loved it. The setting is in a lovely spot with beautiful scenery round about. Thanks for your recommendation.
Mrs Wotherspoon

nice place overall
The cottage was spotlessly clean and is compact enought for 2 people. The kitchen has everything you need and the bed is comfy. The only issue I had was the power from the shower is really low to the point of an almost dribble and it was really cold in the cottage and took a long time to heat up. Other than those minor niggles it is a great little cottage and good spot for getting out and about
