A former youth hostel in the middle of the dales -- virtually the middle of nowhere -- the lodge has been converted into a cozy hotel. The best part: an extremely comfortable lounge with huge windows overlooking the dales and chairs and a sofa around a table where strangers can become fast friends. We shared ciders and port with a... More

We arrived with two out of three pairs of boots extremely wet from the peat bogs we had negotiated after Nine Standards Rigg and were so pleased to be greeted by a very welcoming Matt who showed us the amazing drying room as well as our lovely double-aspect rooms. Plenty of space and helpful information such as 'Midge Alert' (don't... More

By the time we had negotiated the blue route over 9 standards in heavy wind and rain (including close encounters with a peat bog) we were more than glad to arrive at Keld Lodge but a bit unsure if we were too early to be admitted. We needn't have worried as we were made very welcome. Keld Lodge prides itself... More

My wife and I stayed here with two other couples as part of our Coast To Coast walk. As soon as we walked into the small bar from the entrance porch we were made very welcome. They immediately got a big tick from me as the only barperson on the whole coast to coast walk who knew what the drink... More

Our happy memory of this place was as a hostel, but although the building is essentially the same, new ownership has transformed new life into its heart and it was a real pleasure to stay overnight at this fell side hotel run by enthusiastic and talented people. It must be appreciated that the majority of guests arrive here as a... More

Keld is a tiny hamlet & if you don't eat here you go hungry. When I learnt that is was the former Youth Hostel I had my reservations as in this location you don't have to try too hard. But they have tried very hard and they are deservedly popular. We only ate there but found the menu varied and... More

This was our third visit to Keld Lodge, and it remains a special place on the Coast to Coast itinerary. Exactly half way on route and it is time for celebration, with views of tomorrows route from the dining room windows. A very relaxed atmosphere and warm place to chill. Excellent food, and friendly and attentive staff. Highly recommended -... More

A wonderful place to stay. Outstanding location. Staff were excellent in every respect. Lovely room. Most dog friendly place we stayed in the first week of our walk. Provided dog bed and treats on arrival. (Why should Cassie have all the fun - I would have preferred a pint of cider for me!) excellent evening meal and breakfast.
