Brenda is a very special lady. The ideal host. She's there if you need her but she also leaves you to get on with things too. Brenda is my favourite host along the entire Pennine Way and there were some very good hosts. Ponden House is on the Pennine Way. The twin bedrooms are quite spacious & the beds are... More

We had a twin room with a decent sized shared bathroom. First thought on entering the bedroom was "oh dear" as the bed frame appeared to be a left over from Army National Service. However it was one of the most comfortable beds I've had when in a B&B. The velux roof light was manually operated utilising the step ladder... More

My favourite B&B on the Pennine Way - a warm welcome after a cold wet day's walking, with tea and cake, and a beautiful peaceful room. The house is full of interesting works of art and books, and has bags of character. Brenda is a kind, calm host who makes you feel looked after as soon as you walk in.... More

Two friends and I contacted Brenda about a booking with rather short notice. Still, we knew right away that Brenda would be a wonderful host since she was incredibly patient and flexible. The weekend was off to a great start when we were greeted by Brenda's good friends & the rest of her guests over a cup of tea. We... More

My husband booked this short weekend break as a surprise, and what a lovely surprise it was.Though the owner was away her daughter was a great hostess, managing brilliantly and cooking a scrumptious breakfast with a full guest house on our second morning.

We have been visiting Brenda at Ponden Guest House for many years now and my only reluctance to review it is from a selfish point of view in keeping this special place a secret.

Stayed for two nights which was perfect to get away from the business of life. Eat the first night at the excellent silent inn at the bottom of the hill and the second chose a takeaway pizza, wine and the hot-tub lit by fairy lights beneath the stars.

Brenda ensured our single night stay in her charming home was comfortable and peaceful. After a long, tiring day on the beautiful peninne way we were ready for a bit of spoiling and we certainly left the next morning totally refreshed and recharged. Thank you so much for our delightful stay.
