About us


Once part of a working farm, Hadrian’s View is a holiday cottage on Hadrian’s Wall in a converted Medieval barn in the small hamlet of Banks near Lanercost Priory┬áin north Cumbria, and an ideal base for a peaceful holiday.

As the name suggests, Hadrian’s view is ideally located for Hadrian’s Wall. The Hadrian’s Wall National Trail passes directly in front of the gate, while the line of the Wall itself runs beneath the garden. In fact, like many buildings in the area, when the barn was originally built in the 16th century, its builders used stones from Hadrian’s Wall.

The cottage sleeps six people, and well-behaved dogs are welcome. You can relax in its comfortable surroundings and take in the amazing views from the private garden over the Irthing valley towards the northern Pennines. Or enjoy everything the area has to offer: great walking or cycling in some of Britain’s most spectacular scenary, a wealth of historic places to visit, and pretty local towns and villages.
