Myself and four fellow walkers arrived at Frenchgate on Sunday 8th June after our walk from Reeth. Ralph's welcome was very warm and friendly. Our room on the top floor had wonderful views over Richmond. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was a treat. Thank you Ralph, definitely in our top five guest houses on the Coast to...

We stayed at Frenchgate Guest House during our recent C2C walk. We made the mistake of going to Frenchgate Hotel first which was just down the street and the guest house is slightly tucked away around the corner at the top of the street. Once the mishap was realised we were welcomed by Ralph who was a gracious host. Our... More

The travellers who wrote a good review of Ralph (the owner) must have met a different Ralph. Clearly booking and pre-paying your room is no a guarantee of a room here. We arrived tired from a long C2C hike to met by a scrawled note on the door to call Ralph. We finally contacted him only to be told he... More

Thank you, Ralph for your kindness, help, and for my lovely stay at Frenchgate. Richmond drew me with its castle and gateway to the Dales, but I hadn't booked there but with an extra day in my three-week travels I chose to see Richmond and took the bus and hoped for the best. Lucky for me, Frenchgate was at the... More

66 Frenchgate Guest House is a must stay. The million dollar ( £ ) view is alone worth the stay but you will also enjoy a lovely bedroom and sleep like a baby. Ralph will do anything in his power to accommodate your needs and make you happy and comfortable. We have stayed here numerous times and can't imagine staying... More

Stayed here whilst working in Richmond and chose it for the convenient location to the office. I have to say im suprised that it is not higher up the rankings on Trip Advisor as I found it very impressive. Ralph is a super friendly and welcoming host, he recommended a great restaurant to eat in near the b&b and i... More

We enjoyed A one night stay in the Napoli suit in March 2014, the room facilities were excellent very clean and comfortable (definitely worth the upgrade). The hosts were very welcoming and food was excellent. Overall a wonderful romantic break will definitely be back.

Firstly, thank you Ralph for making our anniversary weekend so special when we stayed in your beautiful home. The free room upgrade you gave us upon booking when I informed you of the occassion was an unexpected delight. "Superb" is the only way to describe the comfort and elegance of that room. But when you go into the breakfast room... More
