Just what the doctor ordered! We arrived rather wet after a day on the Coast-to-Coast walk and were welcomed with an invitation to occupy our room a few hours before the official check-in time. The room was sizeable, and the facilities were good. The welcome wasn't quite as personal as some of the places we stayed, but it was a... More

We had a pleasant stay during last weekend, the hotel is very warm and cozy. Very friendly and helpful staff and great food at the pub downstairs, we had the Beer Battered Haddock... "fish & chips" and the Traditional Cumbrian Short Crust Steak. Breakfast was very good as well.

Before leaving on the C2C, I'd read reviews about the church bells ringing through the night. I'm a light sleeper. I was fretting. I'm not sure if it was exhaustion or sound-proofing, but I barely heard the bells. Our room was large and lovely, but best of all was the big, claw-footed tub. After a good soak and a good... More

We stayed one night on the C2C. Small pub/B&B in an even-smaller village. The food and drink were marvelous and unexpected. Delicious lamb burger. We stayed in the double room at the front across from the church. Ear plugs were provided to ensure a good night sleep. Do try the sticky toffee pudding to boost calorie intake.

Whilst we didn't stay here, we called in for a drink and a meal. The staff were so very friendly, excellent service and the food was exceptional! Well done on your customer service! I would highly recommend this place.

The room at the Crown & Mitre in Bampton Grange was not luxurious but it was comfortable and clean and quiet. The dining offered downstairs was a great surprise. Good choice of ales and bitters and really good food with good service at affordable prices.

Spent a single night whilst walking the Coast-2-Coast ... single room was en-suite, v. small but clean and comfy. Earplugs provided ... but noise was no problem:-) Friendly, helpful and attentive staff, even thought I was a solo walker. Good hearty evening meal and breakfast. Lovely situation ... slightly off theC-2-C ... but lovely walk there and on to Shap... More

We stayed here for 1 night whilst doing C 2 C. It's about a mile off the path but well worth the diversion and avoids need to walk all the way from patterdale to shap. Bampton was off of our map but we managed to use a phone to navigate us in the right direction. Staff were very friendly, room... More

Whilst been a little off the C2C track before Shap, the Crown and Mitre is well worth a stopover ( and you can rejoin the C2C route without retracing your steps or extra mileage). It's a lovely experience, nice bedrooms and excellent food served in a bar with friendly owners and staff. Terrific breakfast too. It's a hidden gem.
