Lovely personalised welcome from Ken & Barbie, two experienced walkers who know exactly what a walker needs in a stopover. From the tea and cakes on our arrival through to the very extensive breakfast table everything was perfect. Our room was beautifully decorated, as immaculate as the rest of the house and yet our hosts made us feel welcome and... More

Excellent. We were welcomed with a personalised message on a piece of slate, also an ice cold coke and a couple of crumpets... fantastic after a days walking. The house was lovely and i would not hesitate in returning. Barbara and Ken were perfect hosts. Breakfast was the best ever.... 15 out of 10

Best stay on our 12 night Coast to Coast journey! Warm welcome with drink and crumpets and the rest of the stay was also outstanding - Barbara couldn't do enough for you! Loads of fruit at breakfast plus generous portions. Ken was also obliging and threw in a bit of comedy!

We have just returned from another 3nt visit to Barbara and Kens lovely home which is the perfect b&b. The bedroom and full-size bathroom are beautiful and always spotlessly clean. The breakfast is the best ever and the welcome you get is great with tea and c rumpets. Looking forward to our next visit.

lovely welcome by Ken and Barbie. They kindly let us into our room early and gave us tea in their lovely garden while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. On our return at the mid-point of our C2C trek another warm welcome. Lovely brekkie and the best packed lunch, great value for money and well balanced.... More

We spent two nights here during our Coast to Coast trip (1st and 5th night) and Barbara and Ken couldn't have been nicer. What a wonderful couple! They are welcoming and warm and super accommodating (even with a coffee AND tea request at breaky time). The breakfast is plentiful and delicious and the rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean.

We stayed here twice when walking the coast to coast (half last year, half this year). Wonderful hosts, spotlessly clean room, best breakfast on the walk. We will definitely be back if we stay in Kirby Stephen again.

After a long and tiring day walking on the Coast to Coast path we arrived at White Gill House to be met by Barbara and Ken with tea and buttered crumpets - what a treat. We consumed these in the large conservatory that is set aside for the use of guests. Our double bedroom (there is only one double and... More

A lovely welcome after a hard days walking with tea and crumpets. We couldn't have asked for better, it's spotlessly clean and our hosts would do anything to help make the stay more comfortable. Breakfast is the best on the trip so far with the offer of anything that you want. Packed lunch is also excellent, I simply couldn't fault... More
