Martin & Denise Atkinson welcome you to the Vallum House Hotel. A family and friendly nine bedroom hotel with all the comforts of home, excellent food, full license and cheery surroundings. The Vallum House Hotel is situated in its own natural gardens, with car park, on the Western rim of Carlisle on the road to Burgh-By-Sands on the site where the Romans camped. Whether your visit is short or long, we will ensure your every comfort to help you relax.
From the Hotel one can view the line of the Vallum and Roman wall, the course of the river EDEN, and the distant view of the SCOTTISH BORDERS HILLS, including BURNSWARK situated near Lockerbie. The vallum House Hotel commands an important site in History. The 'flat topped' hill on which we stand was used by the Romans as a signalling Garrison, and messages flashed from Burnswark on Solway and along the wall as far as Lanercost and Banks Turret.
Carlisle Castle - About 5 minutes drive from the HotelBefore we depart from the Roman occupation, another little look at this area of LUGABALIA as the Romans called it. LYWELYDD town offered marked advantages, on the hill north of the river was built the Roman station, which now bears the name of STANWIX. This can still be seen on the right from Vallum Hotel. Remember the hillsides and country was, at this time covered by forests and sparse pockets of population. The Roman soldiers who garrisoned this area at this time would probably number about 15,000 and have with it, a large number of civilians. So it came about when the Romans left Carlisle (CAERLUEL) which had been a successively Roman, British and English town later became Scottish in turn.

Our first-class hotel at Burgh Road, Carlisle takes its name from Hadrian's Wall which used to stand nearby. Situated in a select residential area, en route to the Solway Coast, it is open for morning coffee, bar meals and luncheons from noon to 2pm. Afternoon teas, high teas and evening bar meals are served from 6pm to 9pm and dinners from 7pm to 9pm. Our floodlight gardens add to the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel. The hotel has mainly en-suite bedrooms, complete with tea/coffee, television, telephone, trouser press, hair dyers, etc.
