Can't agree - just finished Dales Way and stayed at some top pubs - White lion at Cray, Sun Inn at Dent wouldn't advocate Jolly Angler at Burneside though.

I agree with JL, ive done lots of LDWs stayed in a whole variety of B&Bs, hotels and campsites. Isnt the whole experience about the walking, countryside, meeting and sharing experiences with other like minded people. Having a beer after a hard days walking etc. You then go to bed (whatever that is) which is occasionally neccesary, but hardly the most important part of the adventure. Personally, I'd put up with (and have) anything, just to get out there and do it! Ive never in all my experience let sub standard accomodation even register with me, as all the other fantastic benefits more than compensate.

You dont have to pay a fortune for B&B so long as you look around enough which is easy with the internet and phone. I walked the West Highland Way 2 years ago, excellent accomodation for an average 22 per night. You would have to be real unlucky or just plain careless to find your planned accomodation is sub standard every night. Unless you are the type that expect silver spoons and a water bed, and if so mind you dont step in any puddles, wouldnt want to mess up those highly polished boots, would you!
