Arrived tired and aching after a long walk from Kirkby Stephen. We received a warm and efficient welcome from Matt and it got better from there. Our dinner from an imaginative and extensive menu was very tasty. The Black Sheep bitter was in good form. My bedroom was warm, peaceful and comfortable. The Lodge has a drying room for wet clothes and boots. It is amazing how many places that claim to cater for walkers don't offer this facility, so well done to them. The service and atmosphere here is really good.
