Lyndale Guest House
Ranked #3 of 5 Bellingham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Mr and Mrs Gaskin were very friendly from the first telephone conversation when booking. We were lucky enough to have the weather to enjoy tea and biscuits under the gazebo in the back garden on our arrival, before being shown are super clean and well equipped rooms. Probably the best nights kip of our trip. The breakfast was hearty with a good selection of options and was cooked to perfection, probably the best breakfast of our trip :) All in all a superb, well run, friendly B&B. Definitely recommended.

I was spoilt at this guest house! I arrived after a long day on the Pennine Way to a warm welcome and arrangements were immediately made to get my boots dried and to get me feeling more comfortable with coffee and biscuits. The gentleman host was very attentive and has walked this stage of the Pennine Way before, so we had a good discussion about options for the following day's walk. There were two large lounge rooms that I was welcome to use, one with sofas and TV, the other with a dining table and lots of books and maps to peruse. Both rooms were flanked by huge windows with views over hills and town - just gorgeous.

The whole house was immaculately clean. My room was a warm and cosy twin with shower ensuite. The ensuite was really tiny - just fitting a shower and toilet - but that's all I needed and there was a basin/sink with counter space and large mirror in the bedroom for freshening up. The guest house has wifi access and everything I needed was attended to. When I made a comment about my legs being sore, I was swiftly offered the use of a whirlpool bath just across the hall from my room. It was lovely to have an invigorating soak after the muddy madness of the Pennine Way forests (other walkers will understand and agree!).

On recommendation from the guest house, I had dinner at the Cheviot which was excellent. In the morning, breakfast was cooked well and my boots were brought back nice and dry. Again on recommendation, I visited the local butchers (they open very early) for the cheapest but most tasty pasties and also sandwiches for lunch. I highly recommend this place - they know what walkers want and seem really keen to ensure their guests have a good stay.

Ken's friendly welcome and pot of tea (with biscuits) was an excellent start to our stay. He gave us plenty of time to sit in the sunny garden before showing us round and offering us slippers whilst organising our (rather damp) walking boots. Our room had a very comfortable bed and a view of the hills. On Ken's recommendation we ate at the Cheviot Hotel and enjoyed an excellent meal.
Breakfast was very good and came with plenty of tips from Ken about avoiding the worst of the bogs on the next day's walk.
Ken and Joyce are a lovely couple who welcome you into their home and really go the extra mile to make sure everything goes well with your stay.

We had decided to camp but it was incredibly windy and raining when we arrived and we decided to stay in a B and B and put our tent up the next day.
The lady gave us biscuits and tea as soon as we walked through the door and made us feel very welcome.
We had a lovely cooked breakfast the next morning too.
Very nice room and would definitely stay here again.

Were staying one night for a friends wedding and decided to book one night here as it was very central and reasonably priced. We were greeted on arrival by Ken and he made us tea/coffee with some biscuits in the conservatory which was a nice touch.

Twin room was a reasonable size, with TV and en-suite facilities and comfy beds. Ken explained to us where the Church was for the wedding and he was spot on! There was no latest time to be in for which was handy as the wedding went on late.

Breakfast was offered any time between 8-10am which meant we could have a bit of a lie in. Brilliant choice of cereals and then a big selection for full main brekkie with the full english going down a treat.

Would recommend this B & B to anyone, very good hospitality and a nice clean place to stay.

Like pip030, we stayed here when walking part of the Pennine Way. The room was quite small, but very quiet and comfortable, so just what we needed. The scrambled eggs with salmon was the best breakfast of our trip!

Stayed with Ken and Joyce one night
We had driven up from north Surrey just before Easter.weather was expected to be bad. As we were on route to Loch Tay , Scotland we decide to break the journey up.booked online looked at the pictures and checked for places to eat nearby. Of course the one thing you aren't able to check is the friendliness of your hosts. Unless you read the reviews or leave one. Very friendly older couple made us welcome pointed us in the direction of the pub when we eventually arrived after dodging the snow and the road closures.They even checked road conditions for us for our onward journey.

Thats the thing about travelling you always uncover new places to come back and visit. Lots to see in the area and in the Nationsl Park.Including Hadrians Wall and Kielder Forest and lake,Europea largest man made lake. Bellingham Is almost the centre of the country too.
Kens got a lot of local knowledge ,maps of the area and is a mine of information....enjoy your stay.
