I have recently received my copy of the 2006 Dales Way Handbook - a must I would suggest for anyone contemplating planning and walking the Dales Way. I have used the Association handbook for accommodation on the Dales Way for the past 3 years and one of the places I have stayed, which incidentaly has been first class, is Hollin Root Farm, Garth Row.

I have noted that the Dales Way Association website states that Hollin Root Farm is no longer offering accommodation and also the website seems to have closed down. I wondered if anyone knew what had happened. Olga has been a brilliant hostess offering outstanding accommodation and food and I am sure Hollin Root Farm will be missed by many Dales Way walkers and indeed those using Hollin Root Farm as a base for the Lake District.

Update to my previous message, I have established that Olga hopes to resume B & B for walkers at Hollin Root Farm at some time in the future but current family responsibilities prevent her from doing so. I am sure those who have stayed there will wish Olga well and look for a return to B& B services in the future.

An Olga used to run an excellent B&B in Bowness on Windermere up to about 10 years ago. Is this the same one?
