I was lucky to have my tour company book me at the Old Croft House for two night - Nick and Rachel were so kind and welcoming - going beyond the call of duty to rescue me from the train station in the pouring rain when I could not find a taxi - Nick drove up to the station then...

We stayed here as we traveled the Coast to Coast walk and I can't overstate how wonderful and convenient the accommodations were AND the hospitality of Rachel and Nick. I had lost my iPhone charger (iPhone was our GPS), and Nick kindly lent me his and after we left the next morning, Rachel even called our previous lodging to see...

I can't say enough in praise of the Old Croft House. We loved the room, the breakfast was wonderful and our hosts welcoming. Nick and Rachael are tops! Tea and cakes to welcome us, made dinner reservations for us and generally made us feel welcome. We stayed at The Old Croft House for a "rest day" while walking the C2C,...

Nick and Rachel were great hosts - very friendly without being at all overbearing. The building is decorated in a comfortable and eclectic way with nice old furniture, quirky pictures and the bed was very comfy. Nice bathroom and plenty of hot water. Footspa in the wardrobe for tired walkers is a nice touch. We were offered tea and cake...

Stayed here as a convenient stopover cycling back from Sunderland. I don't what the competition is like in Kirkby Stephen but it would be very difficult to beat. I can't find any fault whatsoever. Decor is period style - looks like it was done quite recently and very tasteful. Very clean, huge selection of reading material and the best shower...

Four of us were mountain biking the coast to coast. We were due to take 2 days to get from Ravenglass to Kirbky Stephen. The first good thing was we could leave our gear here for when we arrived in 2 days time. When we did actually arrive the hosts not only offered to wash and dry our sweaty and...

I stayed here as part of walking the Coast to Coast, meeting family here part way through. The Old Croft House was the best B and B so far on the walk, friendly helpful hosts, lovely big rooms, great breakfast (yoghurt, fruit, cereal, lots of cooked options), excellent packed lunch for the walk ahead. If I was coming to Kirkby...

Nick and Rachel welcomed us with Tea and cake after our successful completion of the coast to coast walk. The rooms are furnished with traditional furniture in keeping with its surroundings. The walls of the hallway are lined with fascinating books and there are comfortable sofas to sit and read them if you choose to. The hosts were attentive and...

Voted our best stay on the Coast to Coast. Couldn't fault it, very friendly and helpful, warm welcome, fantastic shower, perfect breakfast. B&B's on the path seem to be improving these days but Rachel & Nick are certainly raising the standard. We had a problem with one of our bags not arriving - it was our problem not Nicks or...
