We spent a night at Keld Lodge while doing the Coast to Coast and had a good experience. The lodge is located just a minute or two off of the C2C route and is something of an oasis in an endless expanse of sheep pasture. The service at the lodge was great, with everyone we met very friendly and very willing to help in any way they could. There is a restaurant and bar on-site, which is great as there isn't anything else around. There is also a comfortable public lounge, which was a nice place to enjoy a pint and chat with your fellow C2Cers (and, in one case, meet their friendly dog). You also have access to the drying room for any of your gear that needs it. If there is a downside to the lodge it's that the rooms, and the bathrooms in particular, are quite small. Clean and comfortable yes, but small. I'd certainly recommend the lodge to others.
