There is a payphone close by but when we went it would not accept coins. Our hosts were most helpful, allowing us to use their phone for a small contribution to a local charity. A...

We booked four rooms over two nights at Butt House for colleagues attending a workshop at the adjacent Keld Resource Centre. Harkers of Reeth managed our transfers beautifully from Darlington Station, whilst Jacqui and Chris kept us warm, fed and watered. Brilliant hospitality - we could not fault it. Vegetarians were catered for, packed lunches were provided for our al...

Thank you for the lovely review David and team. It was such a pleasure to look after you all and have the honour of being asked to accommodate the delegates at the first ever Keld Resource conference. We look forward to meeting everyone again someday.

A truly perfect location, a beautiful house & fabulous food. Jacqui & Chris are the most welcoming of hosts, they made my three night stay a relaxing experience & one I can't wait to repeat. Thank you - already missing the peace & quiet of Keld & Butt House.

Truly delicious food, well stocked bar, exceptionally clean room and bathroom, beautifully decorated, crisp linens, boot dryer, lovely living room with few knick knacks--not at all "granny", warm welcome and send off.

We are so pleased you loved the Homemade wild picked Raspberry Jam. It was lovely sitting with you all over dinner.

Beautiful location, quiet and peaceful. Really friendly and welcoming owners, Jacqui and Chris, nothing too much trouble. Rooms very clean and comfortable beds. Breakfast was lovely and a big bonus of providing an evening meal for the weary walker that doesn't want to venture out after a long day, also licensed so another huge bonus. Ideal for Pennine Way, coast...

We are so glad you loved everything about Butt house. Most people do not like to venture out once they have arrived, so we do try to meet all our guests needs, so they do not need to put their boots on until the next morning. Thank you for your lovely review. Jacqui, Chris and Scamp

I normally avoid places that take dogs, as although I am a dog lover I have had negative experiences in the past of hair and smells left by other's dogs. I decided to take a risk as the Butt House had such good reviews. I am glad I did, not a dog smell or hair in sight! The resident dog...

It's a hard act to follow after staying at the Argill Castle in Kirkby Stephen, but Chris and Jacquline distinguished their establishment with the food. While we would rate the rooms as being "functional and basic, but nothing special", our dinner was exceptional. I had some sort of vegetarian tart that was very, very tasty.
