We stopped at the Keld Lodge after a very long walk from Askrigg. It was a welcome site on the horizon and the welcome continued as soon as we walked in. Matt showed us to our room and even brought up fresh milk and some delicious cake to sustain us until an hour or so later when the evening meal was avaliable. The room was nice and comfortable with a lovely warm shower. The evening meal was very good indeed with nice beer and wine and a nice choice of starters and mains that were interesting but not too complicated. The service from Matt was excellent. This continued after a superb night's sleep at breakfast. The breakfast itself was delicious and the service matched this topped off with the offer of a lift to Reeth to avoid waiing, and paying for the bus. We couldn't recommend this place highly enough and we will go out of our way to stay there again.
