lovely welcome by Ken and Barbie. They kindly let us into our room early and gave us tea in their lovely garden while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. On our return at the mid-point of our C2C trek another warm welcome. Lovely brekkie and the best packed lunch, great value for money and well balanced.... More

We spent two nights here during our Coast to Coast trip (1st and 5th night) and Barbara and Ken couldn't have been nicer. What a wonderful couple! They are welcoming and warm and super accommodating (even with a coffee AND tea request at breaky time). The breakfast is plentiful and delicious and the rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean.

We stayed here twice when walking the coast to coast (half last year, half this year). Wonderful hosts, spotlessly clean room, best breakfast on the walk. We will definitely be back if we stay in Kirby Stephen again.

After a long and tiring day walking on the Coast to Coast path we arrived at White Gill House to be met by Barbara and Ken with tea and buttered crumpets - what a treat. We consumed these in the large conservatory that is set aside for the use of guests. Our double bedroom (there is only one double and... More

A lovely welcome after a hard days walking with tea and crumpets. We couldn't have asked for better, it's spotlessly clean and our hosts would do anything to help make the stay more comfortable. Breakfast is the best on the trip so far with the offer of anything that you want. Packed lunch is also excellent, I simply couldn't fault... More

This has to be the best guest house I've ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean, very nice en-suite bedroom and a lovely sunny conservatory. We were greeted by the wonderful owners and given a welcome tea and crumpets. Breakfast was superb. 10/10 :-)

White Gill House, along with 2 other B&Bs, was a contender for THE best accommodation we experienced on our 16 day Coast to Coast walk. Barbara and hubby are very walker friendly as noted by other reviewers. We were greeted with such warmth that we immediately felt at home. We were offered a drink on arrival and nothing was too...

OMG what beautiful little guest house just tucked away in Kirby Stephen. The owners well you could not ask for a nicer couple, we were met with a cup of tea and from that moment on nothing was to much trouble, and place was spotless.
