Rooms very comfortable with views over surrounding countryside. Mrs Taylor made us a wonderful home cooked meal and breakfast to keep us going the next day along the Pennine Way. Located a short taxi ride or easy walk to Haworth the home of the Brontes. Highly recommended.

Brenda is a very special lady. The ideal host. She's there if you need her but she also leaves you to get on with things too. Brenda is my favourite host along the entire Pennine Way and there were some very good hosts. Ponden House is on the Pennine Way. The twin bedrooms are quite spacious & the beds are...

We had a twin room with a decent sized shared bathroom. First thought on entering the bedroom was "oh dear" as the bed frame appeared to be a left over from Army National Service. However it was one of the most comfortable beds I've had when in a B&B. The velux roof light was manually operated utilising the step ladder...

My favourite B&B on the Pennine Way - a warm welcome after a cold wet day's walking, with tea and cake, and a beautiful peaceful room. The house is full of interesting works of art and books, and has bags of character. Brenda is a kind, calm host who makes you feel looked after as soon as you walk in....

Two friends and I contacted Brenda about a booking with rather short notice. Still, we knew right away that Brenda would be a wonderful host since she was incredibly patient and flexible.

We have been visiting Brenda at Ponden Guest House for many years now and my only reluctance to review it is from a selfish point of view in keeping this special place a secret. You will need to be determined to find it as it's off the main road and the track leading past the reservoir is not the best...
