Walkers paradise!

My friend and I stayed at the Forest View on the last sections walking the Pennine Way; we booked the full package with 2 nights' B&B, packed lunch and pick up from the half way point at Windy Gyle. We were blown away by Colin and Joyce's exceptional service! The room was clean and warm, with a great en-suite shower. On arrival, soaking wet after a day's walk we found there was a freshly brewed pot of tea ready, and while we thawed in the warm conservatory, Colin took all our wet gear to the drying room, cleaned our boots (first time since we started the Pennie Way!) and stuffed them with newspapers and got them in the drying room too. The meals were good, plentiful and amazing choices too. The next morning after a hearty breakfast, we found Colin had brought out all the boots and walking gear, now dried, labelled and laid out by the door ready for all the walkers. This couple is truly amazing and we cannot thank them enough for their dedication and the quality of the service they provide at Forest View. Thank you Colin and Joyce, and all the best with your business.

Thoroughly lovely place

Joly B,
My brother and I stayed a night in the bunkhouse here during our recent Pennine Way walk. It was clean, warm and well-equipped, and the main inn had a grand little bar with good beers on, plus a conservatory and a drying room. The proprietors, Colin and Joyce, really made the place - they're very friendly and welcoming, they tell some great stories, and when we went into the drying room before bed we found that they'd already been in and turned all our wet stuff over for us to make sure it dried properly. Above and beyond the call of duty, given the filthy state of our kit!

Friendly and perfect for walking the Pennine Way

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
