Friendly and perfect for walking the Pennine Way

Charliehjw, Greater London, United Kingdom
We stayed here for 2 nights in July whilst walking the Pennine Way. The hosts were outstanding in providing accommodation/service catering for walkers. When we walked in our boots were whisked away, cleaned and stuffed with newspaper, and the kettle was already on! the rooms were absolutely immaculate, the food was hearty (dinner, breakfast, and packed-lunch), and the company was equally good. We also booked an option to be dropped off and picked up by the hosts half way along the 27 mile final stage of the Pennine Way, and this worked very well. This is a real walkers hotel, so it isn't grand or posh, but for the market it caters for it would be very hard to beat!

Called in for a drink and booked breakfast for the following day. Lovely couple and truly fab breakfast!. Met other guests who were very happy staying there and the level of service they were receiving

Stayed here in 2016 and again this year for a 2 night stay. Arrived from Bellingham after negotiating the muddiest and wettest track I have ever encountered. (That doesn't do it justice as to how bad). We arrived "soaked" and now fully appreciate the service that Colin and Joyce provide. Gear so wet that I wished I was carrying spare boots. But that proved unnecessary as Colin whisked the wet clothing away to the drying room, gave the boots a wash and had them in the drying room. By morning all was well. An excellent evening meal, a hot shower with great water pressure (expensive pumps), a good nights rest in a clean comfortable room followed by a good hot breakfast. Almost forgot the beer! A few pints of the 4 on offer including one that referred to the Pennines, and all in good condition. And on to the next day. A day with limited visibility and wet. Collected by Joyce from Trows Farm via MoD private roads - permit required - and returned to Forest View. Owing to the poor visibility it took longer than anticipated to get to Windy Gyle/Trows but Joyce was waiting for us. See above for routine re wet boots, clothing etc etc. And then a lift back to Trows to begin the last part of our Pennine Way trek. Forest View is on the market as Colin & Joyce are planning to retire so fingers crossed that they get the right offer and right people to take over. Without Forest View this last part of the Pennine Way, 45 miles from Bellingham to Kirk Yetholm, will get that much harder to organise

2nd stay here and just as good if not better than last year.

Frances S,
We stayed for the 2 day last leg Pennine Way package. Accommodation at Forest View is extremely comfortable and immaculately clean, and the welcome is brilliant, Colin almost takes your wet boots and socks off for you in order to clean them and get them into the drying room whilst offering a cup of tea at the same time. Upstairs the shower is so good that after a hard day's walking you just don't want to get out! But get out you must so that you can go downstairs to appreciate Joyce's lovely home cooking - stopping on the way at Colin's well stocked bar for a pint of recommended ale. Joyce picked us up at the end of our first day and we had a lovely jokey conversation on the drive back, she stopped just above Chew Green so that we could see the outline of the Roman camp. When we got back she then had to get on with preparing all our dinners. How both Colin and Joyce keep going all season long running Forest View to such a high standard remains a mystery, I think they are super human. Long may they continue.


Joyce and Colin are 2 of the loveliest people we met on our Pennine Way adventure. We were offered a smashing cup of tea immediately on arrival and then Colin took our smelly wet boots, cleaned them, stuffed them with paper and put them in the drying room. After a shower in our immaculately clean room and a lovely home made dinner followed by a handpulled beer, we were in heaven. The most welcoming accommodation on our whole trip. Nothing too much trouble and you won't believe the treasure trove of a tuck shop at the bottom of the stairs! If you're looking for a home from home after a hard day's trek, you'll find it here.
