We were checked in by the lovely Elaine who took our wet jackets and boots and hung them by her fire, she then gave us afternoon tea and cake which was very welcome after a rainy hike. The cottage itself is very warm, welcoming and appealing to walkers. Our after choosing our breakfast we were led to our room which was very nice, clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the condiments of tea and coffee were decent too. The cottage is only a short walk into Kirkby Stephen which was useful and the following morning. We enjoyed a good English breakfast with plenty of tea, coffee and toast for accompaniment.

Beautiful Cottage, great location ideal for Coast to Coast walkers. Bags can be picked up from cottage. Elaine the host is a host with the most and nothing is too much trouble and very informative. Our room (Eden Room) was beautiful, very clean and very relaxing. Breakfast ordered the night before and was very fresh and delicious. The cottage has 3 bedrooms and would be ideal to book as a family getaway together. Kirby Stephens itself has a few shops, cafes and pubs. Also a lovely place to have a good walk. You can also go on the train to Settle and Carlisle. Elaines cottage for us was perfect for our nights stay. I would very highly recommend and we will be returning. Thank you Elaine for making us feel very welcome.

Bollam Cottage is just a wonderful B&B. Kirkby Stephen was the first of our rest days so we had two nights here which was a bonus. Great location, fine room, beautiful lounge area. Got some good advice from the hosts on walking routes, gear etc. We plan to come back to the area & this will definitely be our first choice. Loved it.

Fantastic stop off on the Coast to Coast route. We were welcomed with tea and the most delicious fruit cake. The rooms were spacious and very comfy. Fabulous bathroom with roll top bath. Great breakfast and welcome from Elaine who couldn't have been more helpful.
