A slow reception at the end of a long wet day of walking to find our suitcases still outside the door, the drying room full of their belongings and then an offered cup of tea took an hour to eventuate while we waited in our wet gear and were regaled with stories of her life. It was made quite clear that there was no extra assistance to be had but we could call a taxi from Whitby for 13 pounds each way to get to the pub for dinner. We had to pass through the kitchen and their cosy dinner to walk in the dark to the village 1km away. Fortunately nice locals drove us home.
An unpleasant final night after a great 2 weeks of walking and accommodation.
