A party of 4 stayed at the Red House farm during our C2C walk.
The welcome was somehow cool as we had to wait to get into our accommodation as our hosts had been busy all day, with plumbing: a previous guest had broken a tap! May be, this was due to the age of the property!
The owners made it clear to us that there were rules and regulations regarding staying at their house and they were in no way prepared to do anything which could have made our stay more enjoyable, ie a lift to the pub.
The house is about a mile away from the nearest and only pub, which is fine if you like walking on an unlit road at night, in the dark.
The publican, on the other hand, understands customer service and kindly drove us back to the the B&B.
Disappointing stay.

While we are terribly disappointed to get a poor rating, we are in a way pleased that, as this criticism is on a widely read website where hopefully people contemplating walking the Coast-to-Coast will see it and be aware of what we can and cannot offer, it may help both them and us have a more pleasant experience. There is not too much factually to disagree with in the critique. Plumbing a bit harsh--House predates the plumbing by about 260 years, but as we try to use modern fittings in an old style. . . .

As regards to ‘not making guests comfortable,’ we have been having Coast-to-Coast guests since 1991 and much of our business is due to many of them returning, often annually or biannually, not just from the UK, but Europe and America as well, and we do try to make their stay as comfortable and pleasant as we possibly can. All rooms have TV, ensuite with a bath and a shower, controllable central heating. There is a games/snooker room, a drying room (you may have to share this with us if we’ve worked outside in the rain all day), and a breakfast we’re told frequently is the best on the C-C. (Even in the process of building a lap pool with a fitness and steam room above, but as it’s been about 8 years in the making and still has 1 or 2 to go—maybe not so relevant.) But we don’t, for many reasons—legal, personal, practical and financial—offer lifts to the pub. The pub is ¾ mile away and a taxi is available at £12.00 at the time of writing. It does seem a lot for one, but as more often than not, we have 4 walkers or more, just about the price of a pint. (I think this party consisted of 4 people.) We try to tell the agencies and everyone who books with us about the pub situation, so hopefully, this message will help others match up their expectations with what we can provide.

I hope this helps people with their bookings and if a walk to the pub of an evening or the taxi ride doesn’t suit you, the pub itself provides B&B as does Mrs. Rogan at Beggars Bridge and, if she is still providing B&B, Louise at Holmwood. Telephone numbers will be in Doreen Whitehead’s excellent C-C book or website.
Yours sincerely, Tom & Sandra Spashett

My husband and I stayed at Red House Farm for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at Danby Castle. We stayed in the Hay Loft for B&B although I think this would usually be self catering. The setting is beautiful on a private farm with hens milling about, cattle in the field and a duck pond - a proper taste of North Yorkshire! We loved our room, which was a cosy nook providing all the facilities we could ever need including a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machines, TV... They have definitely made the most of all possible storage spaces to provide an uncluttered space. Sandra was a fantastic host and we enjoyed our yummy cooked breakfast!! There are lots of fantastic pubs close by and we can't wait to return and spend some more time exploring the area!

After an incredibly long walk we were welcomed with a hug, a hot pot of tea, some delicious cookies and a tail wag from Pixie! Despite a demanding 8 hour walk, we sat up chatting with the hosts like we were catching up with old friends and then soaked in the bath where there was plenty of hot water and fresh towels. Flat screen TVs followed by a great night sleep. After seven days of fried breakfasts we were just about reaching our limits, but to our delight we were asked what we wanted the night before and opted for a poached egg, fresh tomatoes and mushrooms which left us satisfied and full of energy, particularly after some cereal, fruit and toast which was offered buffet style. Needless to say, we were given a hug goodbye and set off on another gruelling day of walking smilling!

Both the house and the hosts have plenty of character and I received a warm welcome and was well looked after. Getting dinner is a bit inconvenient, and my sleep was interrupted with alarm problems but the incredibly professional looking and great tasting breakfast more than made up for it. Would love to come back and stay again.
