Spine Race visitor

Pat R,
The Forest View was a little haven for those of us on the Spine Race (Full Penniine Way in winter). We were treated like royalty and fed the bext food we'd had hroughout the race. It is a perfect place to explore the Pennine Way and the Cheviots with the facilities needed to sort out gear for walkers. Also a nice little bar with some good local ales. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Pat (No.89!)

Fantastic hospitality

Sam G, Bristol, United Kingdom
Wonderful cosy little place on the pennine way, ideal stop off if walking. Fantastic hospitality from Colin and Joyce - nothing was any trouble. Great home cooked food. Would recommend to anyone passing through!

After 32 miles of pennine way, the best curry ever

Shelley M,
What a friendly place! I arrived really late after a long day walking from the Twice brewed pub to find hospitality and shelter in a wild and desolate land. I intended to sleep in my bivouac bag but Colin took pity on me on a freezing October night and allowed me to doss on the sofa. He arranged a great breakfast for the pre-dawn start I needed to get to Kirk Yetholm the next day. You could not ask for more! Fantastic!

The best way to finish the Pennine Way

Jon M,
I stayed here for two nights at the end of walking the Pennine Way, and it was one of the best places I stayed. As so many other reviewers have said, Colin and Joyce go out of their way to make everything work. I also thought it was excellent value given it included dinner, breakfast, and taxi service for two days. And it's hard to overstate the value of being able to enjoy the last two days of the Pennine Way at your own pace, rather than cramming it all into one day and rushing to complete it. It's in a tranquil location, and far enough away from everything that it is really peaceful. It is actually in the Northumberland Dark Sky park, and the stars were wonderful on one of the two nights I was there (like so many other things, star-gazing is subject to weather...). The meals are delicious, the service is exceptional, the pick-up / drop-off service is well organised and "just works", and everything goes so smoothly that I imagine many guests don't realise quite how much is happening behind the scenes to make it work. Because the thing is, Colin and Joyce really care. They care about their guests having a good stay, they care about making sure they have the right permissions for everything they do, and they care about the local area, where they have lived for many years. This makes both of them founts of local knowledge, with many amusing and interesting stories about running the B&B and about the history of the area. It's hard to recommend this place too highly - particularly for Pennine Way walkers.

An Oasis !

Colin's a natural host, and keeps his beer very well indeed ( I'm a CAMRA member.. ). He and Joyce provide super food and real hospitality - They're a great asset to the area, and their PW pickup service was invaluable !
