Our host picked us up at the end of a hard wet day on the C2C. Our room was just fine and even hard hot chocolate. We got a ride to and from the local pub for dinner which actually was very good. Breakfast could not have been better in fact the best on the C2C. My husband had a... More

Stayed here for one night while walking the Cleveland Way. Although the room was small, it was fully equipped with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Since this establishment is a few miles away from the Cleveland Way, the owner fetched us from the trail itself and brought us back to the same point the following morning. Beautiful... More

Very friendly hosts and welcoming for walkers. Basic clean rooms, a pick up from the trail head and a drop off in the morning, as well as a ride to the pub for dinner are all pluses. The breakfast was filling and the hosts knowledgeable about walking.

We stayed on our Coast to Coast walk and had a pleasant stay. As there is no accommodation at Clay Bank walkers either need to stay at Great Broughton, Urra or Chop Gate. Stuart collected us from Clay Bank, arranging pick up by mobile phone from the plateau after the Wainstones, and dropped us back again in the morning. Stuart... More

Many thanks for your kind words. This B&B is a home first and we try not to look like a hotel. Our dogs are allowed to wander the ground floor but at no time are they allowed upstairs. So if you are not keen on dogs do not go for the double room which is downstairs. As for morning time... More

The hosts were friendly and welcoming so much so it is hard to actually write this. But it must be said this BB is not for everyone as it would appear with all the positive reviews it has. The premises cannot be anything but grubby with 2 dogs free to roam the house, dog hairs and dead flies in the... More

We were on day 5 of a 570 mile trip north, and were stunned by the fabulous views in the North Yorkshire moors. It was a great relief to get off the saddle and be so warmly welcomed by Judy and Stuart who run a lovely B&B and didn't flinch at the dirty bikes and cyclists who presented themselves! A... More

For Coast-to-Coast walkers, the area around Clay Bank Top is a bit troublesome because there is no accommodation in the immediate vicinity of the footpath. West Cote B&B is about 3.5 miles from the intersection with the B1257 road, a mile up the road from the Buck Inn in Chop Gate. Stuart and Judy were extremely accommodating and offered to... More

Many thanks for your kind review. I know the walk is can be a trial. Although a B road it is a fast and busy one and I would not recommend it to anyone but I understand your urge to be a purist. For those who want a pick up and don't have a mobile what we do is get... More

I have stayed with Judy and Stuart three times while walking the Coast to Coast walk and the Cleveland Way. Each time they have picked me up from the end of my walk and delivered me back the next day. Each time they have driven me to the local pub for food and brought me back later. Each time they...

Thank you Michael for a really good review but I need to correct you on one very small point - I think you'll find it was homemade rhubarb and ginger jam. That ginger makes all the difference! I hope we'll see you again next year but if you feel the need to try a new walk we understand completely. More

Walking the coast to coast in May we were met at Clay Bank Top having made arrangements by mobile after reaching the summit above Wain stones. The drive down to Chop Gate took only a few minutes. The house is spotless and there are two friendly dogs and several lovely horses. The B&B is next to a working farm with... More

Thank you so much for your supportive review. Judy is very proud of her cheese board and is sorry she could not tempt you away from the full English though was touched by your description of her breakfast. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to see you again. More
