I sensed from our email exchanges around my booking that the people who ran this place went out of their way to be helpful. Indeed they were - but also run the best B & B we have stayed in during our coast to coast walk. It really was difficult to fault anything; from the warm welcome, superb room and... More

You won't find a nicer place to stay than Willamce House, from the warm welcome and homemade fudge and cookies with your tea to the well appointed and spotlessly clean rooms. A historical house in an ideal location, this place couldn't be nicer! We stayed there twice while doing the C to C, once in the middle and then we... More

A lovely place to stay on the Coast to Coast walk. High standard accommodation and very friendly service. Price was really good too. They did my laundry, made me fresh kedgeree for breakfast and sorted my pack lunch too. Great value for money, I would recommend.

Everything about this B & B is top class. Our welcome and our hosts attention to every small detail were excellent. The house, which is centrally located, is historic but our room still had every modern comfort. Breakfast was featured the same very good quality. Thoroughly recommended.

Situated in a cobbled street just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Richmond, this highly regarded guest house is worth seeking out as it is run by a charming and welcoming couple, Colin and Sandra.
