Great location for local walks. Anne and Mick were great and looked after us very well. Mick cooks up a great full English breakfast, so you will be full for your long walks. Anne was a great host with a smile. Felt like being at home the whole time we were there. Great outdoor area to relax and have a...

our first visit to this delightful B& B in Appleby. Made welcome by the owners Ann and Mick, we found this to be a warm comforting stopover. Our room was spacious and well furnished and breakfast was fresh and tasty full english. Ann,in particular went the extra mile after discovering I had had a fall the night before, with painkillers...

We had a charity football tournament in Appleby. So we travelled up from London and arrived at Bongate House to the warmest of welcomes. It has creaky floor boards, small doors and big windows and is quite the most pleasant place to stay. My room wasn’t one of the En Suite rooms but that didn’t matter to much. The room...

Stayed overnight at the Bongate house. Owners took over 4 months ago so they are going to renivate some of the hotel and gardens. It was very clean and comfortable. Bed was a little on small size but they are upgrading to super king sizes soon. Very friendly and accommodating.

Booked this B&B for stopover on way home from Scotland & to do the High Cup Nick walk suggested by Julia Bradbury on her TV walking programme. B&B changed hands between booking and stay - new owners were friendly & accommodating, giving us a room at the back with a balcony overlooking the garden (we were the only guests after...

Day 11 of Pennine Way. A lift from Dufton on the completion of today's lengthy walk was helpfully available - after a telephone call announcing arrival. With a return trip the following morning. My room was not en suite (known in advance) and a shared bathroom, and separate toilet, was available close by. The room was clean tidy, and basic....

We had a very long walk on the Pennine Way that day and were struggling on the last stretch to Dufton. We called ahead once we had 3G coverage to say we were running late and Mick offered to pick us up from Dufton and bring us to Appleby - which he did. He then called the pub to make...

We arrived after completing the above walk. Such an amazing long distance walk. Shame about our final stop over. Good large room. Clean. The ensuite was inadequate. The water pressure in the shower made it difficult to have a pleasurable shower. The water cut off completely three times during a shower. Breakfast was average. The dining room was busy and...

Owners are lovely and look after you. Lovely garden and good size room. Short walk down to pub. Good cooked breakfast. I would recommend more continental choice and put a heated towel rail in ensuite. A lot of the shops in the town are still shut from flood
