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.

What a lovely welcome we had from Barbara when we arrived. We had tea and crumpets in the lovely garden before being shown to our room. The room was lovely and comfortable and the shower was a dream. There is a beautiful conservatory for guests to use. Our wonderful breakfast was served by both Ken and Barbara who were so... More

Despite arriving at the B&B before Barbie was home we made ourselves at home on the garden bench at the front of the house, eating our sandwiches and having a cup of tea from our flasks as we hadn't stopped for lunch on our walk from Orton. Barbie soon showed us to the flower filled back garden and provided tea... More

Amazingly good b&b with, very kind, very friendly, very helpful hosts. A superb B&B with so many extra touches. It is so beautifully decorated and lovingly cared for by Ken and Barbara that it is quite a surprise that they let us slightly bedraggled Coast to Coasters stay there. But there is a huge modern conservatory where we could take... More

We couldn't have received a more wonderful welcome from Barbie and Ken when we arrived after our walk from Orton. Room was clean, a little on the small side for two people with suitcases, packs, etc., but very tastefully decorated and very cozy. Couldn't ask for a better breakfast...the blood pudding is local and exceptional. Hosts are coast to coast... More

We arrived dripping wet and covered in mud after our day's walk and were so very warmly greeted by our lovely hosts Barbie and Ken, who immediately looked after us, taking all the wet stuff to the drying room and offering tea and crumpets - what a wonderful welcome especially as we'd arrived before two o'clock! Our baggage was not... More

Stayed just the one night whilst walking the Coast to Coast and what a welcome - Barbie & Ken such friendly hosts and what a special little B&B with beautiful garden where we were served tea and crumpets on arrival. And what standards - most definitely the cleanest and prettiest B&B on the walk. The bedroom was very comfortable and... More

Just back after another two nights with Barbara and Ken. They have everything anyone could want in a B&B. and make you feel at home straight away with the lovely cup of tea and beautiful homemade cakes and scones at no extra charge. The bedrooms are really lovely with pleasant views of the countryside and plenty of variation in the... More
