What a warm welcome we had when we arrived at Ken & Barbara,s White Gill House. We were doing the C2C and after the walk into Kirkby we were greeted with tea & crumpets. As it was great weather we had the option to sit in the garden or inside the house with relax and make yourself at home. We... 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.

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
