This inn is clean and comfy with tasty, good value food. Decoratively it's a bit of a mish mash but pleasant non the less. The rooms are all twins and I think there's a room with four single beds (a lovely room like something out of Goldilocks and the three bears) It's set up mostly for the C2C and does... More

I've stopped at the Allenheads inn for many of years during my time doing the c2c bike ride with friends. This year was my 10th c2c bike ride and Ann kindly bought me and the guys a round of drinks. I thought a nice touch from her. (Thanks Ann) The Allenheads sell nice beers/ales and the food is very nice.... More

The b&b was a nice place to stay for the night staff were friendly and helpful. The meal on the nighttime was nice. The only downside with the room we stayed in was a broke light fitting in the bathroom which was hanging off the wall which looked bad And could of done with a dust. Other than that it... More

Arrived quite late so missed the cafe and didn't see much of actual village but this was a great stopover for the end of a tiring 2nd day of a 3 day C2C challenge. Lovely food, very comfortable room, good bike storage and great packed lunch. Can't comment on the beer but the mug of builders tea was so welcome... More

With secure storage, good food, comfortable rooms and BEER... this has it all... Nice people, nice food, nice price. Be ready for a steep climb in the morning and be sure to look at the water engine next door. Recommended!

After a tough day we arrived at a lovely place that raised spirits immediately. The rooms were good, the food and drink were great and the hosts were excellent . Will definitely come here again . This place is on the well known C2C route but all travellers are welcome, young and old.

I've stopped here a couple of times now while doing the Coast 2 Coast. The location is great, the Inn is packed with character and has a warm family feel about it. The rooms have everything you need. The bar features some good cask ales along with other beers etc. The main meals were very substantial and nice, nobody in... More

Stayed here for our 2nd nights stop while riding the C2C and what a great choice it was. It was one of, if not the best night of all the places we have stopped at while doing various rides over the past 6 years. We were made to feel very welcome by Ann and the staff, had a lovely meal... More

I can only agree with Paul G, being a member of the same party. If you're expecting a premier inn, you may be disappointed, but my room had real character, was clean and bed comfortable. I slept like a log. At the end of the day, it was built in 1770! The food was great and the staff very welcoming... More
