Butt House is the perfect stop on the Coast to Coast. The hosts get it just right: a warm welcome, comfortable accommodation and great food. There is a spacious drying room (with a machine that dries your boots). Its such a treat being able to relax and enjoy a top quality evening meal, without having to go out again. All...

Thank you for the wonderful review Diana. It was lovely to meet you. We loved getting to know you and it is always lovely to see Mike. Hopefully when you come back in September we will have time to walk to Muker with you both.

The only issue I found when staying here was that I didn't book enough time. The welcome is outstanding as is the food. I looked out my windows to stunning views. I felt at home straight away by Jackie and Chris, and can't wait to go back I am a single female traveller so am a bit wary when trying...

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at Butt House. First on the Pennine Way in 2013 and for the Coast to Coast in 2015. It now has new owners but it is just as welcoming as our first visit. Jacqui & Chris really looked after us and the food was great. The room was clean...

We stayed at Butt House for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our time there! Jacqui and Chris are the most welcoming hosts and provided everything we needed for an enjoyable few nights, including tips on the best walks, Black Sheep beer on tap in the bar and amazing meals! The views all around are breathtaking, and it's a superb base...

Thank you Ange for such a wonderful review. The Little white bus indeed an asset after a long days walk, it means that you can walk twice the distance without having to double back on yourself, it stops / collects along all the villages in the Dale, until Richmond, where there is a connecting bus to Darlington and its train...

We stayed at butt house for two nights, the accomadation was spot on , from the very warm welcome I can say the owners Jacqie and Chris were fantastic and could not have done any more to make our stay more welcome, great food, even offered sandwiches to take out on our daily walk, we will most certainly be back...

We are really glad you enjoyed your stay John. Our packed lunch menu offers a choice of sandwiches, drinks, crisps, cake, biscuits & fruit which are all individually priced, as we understand that people do not always want a big lunch after a hearty breakfast.

We stayed here for one nights B&B during the coast to coast walk. Butt House is run by a lovely couple who are very friendly and accommodating. Keld was our favourite stop over on the walk, a stunning location at the top of Swaledale. The Black Sheep bitter in Butt House is better than in the bar at Keld Lodge....

Great stop along the C2C, but would make an excellent base for walks in the area. Jacqui and Chris are friendly and helpful and it was really enjoyable sitting around the dining room table with the other guests discussing our day's activities over a fantastic meal prepared by Chris.

It was a rainy, wet day along the C2C. It would've been GREAT if the property was open prior to 3, so we could get out of wet clothes, but I understand the need to have time to replenish supplies and do errands. The room was nice and clean. Beds comfortable. We especially appreciated the BOOT DRYER and a large...

Thank you for taking the time to feedback. We do make it clear on our literature that opening time is from 15.00, we do sometimes need to get supplies and go to the bank, but if we are at home then we will never leave anyone out in the rain if they arrive before 3.00 pm. Should anyone arrive early...

I can only reiterate the comments of so many other guests - our recent stay at Butt House whilst walking the Coast - Coast was wonderful - the best B&B we experienced. Our room was spotlessly clean and attractively decorated however the real highlight of our stay was the truly delicious food. As a family of vegetarians we were delighted...
