5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

The hosts Barbara & Ken were very friendly with a suberb hospitality. It was like coming home to (walker-)friends or to the own family and the warm welcome was unique. Everything was very clean and cosy, the breakfast was excellent and we were very sorry when we had to say good bye and walked on the c2c.

We were walking the Lady Anne's Way, and arrived at White Gill after a long and tiring day. Barbara and Ken understood (it no doubt helped that they are great walkers themselves) and gave us such a wonderful welcome, sitting us down in the comfy chairs, bringing us tea and biscuits, and booking the very best restaurant to eat at, using a touch of perseverance. The whole stay was a delight, it was so homely, and a great breakfast. If you are walking the Coast to Coast, or the Lady Anne's Way, this is the place to stay.

This superb B&B is located in the heart of Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria. Ken and Barbara are the most welcoming hosts you're ever likely to meet! The rooms are spotlessly clean with lots of lovely personal touches (and the views aren't too shabby either). For those of you who are stopping off on the Coast to Coast, the conservatory at the back of the house is the perfect place to put your feet up. Brilliant breakfast choices will set you up for a full day's activities too. Once you've stayed there you'll want to keep it to yourself! Ssshhhh!

We started the Coast to Coast walk in Kirkby Stephen. We were warmly welcomed by Barbara and Ken, there property is cosy and the room was perfect. The breakfast was a delight and the packed lunch they prepared for us was fantastic. Highly recommended.

We have just come back from one night with Ken and Barbara and must say we have been on Five Star Cruises and their b&b is the next best thing, absolutely fabulous!! The room was spacious and the bathroom large for a b&b. They have thought of everything both accommodation and breakfast where excellent and such a nice couple. Hope to stay again shortly.

Room Tip: Our room was the twin which we were quite happy with, a lovely view of the Pennines.

Ken and Barbara were great hosts and ran an excellent B&b with good sized rooms and modern bathroom. Good idea to be able to push cases under beds and out of way. Nice to have the conservatory at guests disposal and nice to have a warm welcome with tea and cakes. Breakfast very good and in close proximity to centre and the start of the second half of the C2C. Great place to stay
