I'm planning to do the walk around this time next year, looking at stop over options. From Hawes, should I stop at Keld or carry on to Tan Hill? The following day I will be going to Middleton.
Also, is there a "Border Inn" in Byrness or just the Byrness?

Thanks,

Robbie

Hi,

It much depends on what form of accomodation you are using. I believe Keld YHA is closing the end of this year but there is at least one very good B and B in Keld. (So ive heard, not stayed myself), however there is no pub in there. Tan Hill Inn is a very nice little place. Hard to choose between the 2 really.
I am thinking that both options do not really make either of the days you plan either too lengthy or difficult.

I must say I have not heard of the Border Inn in Byrness, maybe this is being confused with the Border Hotel in KY?
The Byrness serves its purpose ( very little choice in Byrness) but don't expect too much.

Andy

Robbie,
I tried to get in at Keld this May and couldnt get in anywhere!
I'm doing C2C and Keld is an obvious stop on that cross over section. I've ended up at Muker just down the road. If you decide on Keld get calling NOW or you wont stand a chance of making a booking
Good luck for your walk whatever you decide.
This is my last Post before I set off tomorrow Robin Hoods Bay here I come!

Robbie,

Assuming that you are walking the full length of the Pennine Way I have a B and B reccomendation for you:

'The Old House' Near Torside Resevoir, Crowden. Right at the end of the first days walking for most people. It was my favourite stop over on the PW, but the earlier you book the better because it gets full quick.

Try to stay with Doreen and Ernest Whitehead at Butt House in Keld. Doreen......what a character! and good food and comfortable accomodation too.

Have to agree with Andy about "The Old House" - Joanne is a star and it is a nice place. Just watch out along that busy road on th eway to it! You can see my opinion of this and other accommodation along the route at: http://www.f20.biz/pennineway.html

Regards and good luck!

Justin

Hi Justin,

Read your review, fantastic. I have to say that its one of a number of articles and stories I have read and heard that has finally motivated me to have a go at the PW.

I'm sure I will be back over the coming weeks with more questions but thanks for now.

Robbie
