My brother and I stayed with Barbara and Ken the night before we started our C2C walk and again the night we finished. We were able to do this thanks to Coast 2 Coast Packhorse ferrying us to St Bees to start and back from Robin Hood's Bay at the end. Barbara and Ken made us feel so welcome on... More

Whilst I did my C2C last August, I promised faithfully to do a Tripadvisor review for Barbie and Ken. As it was quite simply the nicest place i stayed at for my C3C walk, they deserved me honouring my promise - even if it is a little late. Having walked past some fairly unassuming places to get to Kirkby Stephen... More

Ideally placed for some great walking. An extremely comfortable and central place to stay and Ken and Barbara cannot do enough to make your visit enjoyable. A very high standard of cleanliness and the breakfasts are marvellous. Excellent value and would highly recommend

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.
