Not knowing 100% what to expect here at Gallows hill, we visited just at the end of the season in 2019 and were met by Cressida & Barry Poole, who we have to say are two of the most wonderful people we have ever met! Originally the home of the wife of William Wordsworth, Mary Hutchinson, Gallows Hill offers a perfect escape away from the hustle and bustle of town life. Room after room of non-fussy, yet perfectly furnished suite-styled rooms, this accommodation really doesn’t disappoint and we honestly feel that a stay here is more than reasonably priced. But apart from the accommodation being near perfect, we come back again to its owners Barry & Cressida. They bring a sense of charm, care and attention that they give to all of their visitors is truly unrivalled.
