Dam B,
Great self catering accommodation, in this cosy, converted forest worker's cottage.Well equipped kitchen. The main hostel, across the close, has a well stocked real ale bar, specializing in local beers.

Forest View replied: I`m glad that you enjoyed your pint when you came over from Spruce Cottage bunkhouse but you are not allowed to put a review of another accommodation on our tripadvisor space it belongs on Spruce Cottage`s space in the alternative accommodation section it is causing confusion among people looking for self catering accommodation which we do not have at Forest View Inn.Please can you contact the tripadvisor team to have it moved. It was nice to meet you when you called in for a drink and I am glad that you enjoyed your Pennine way walk, well done.

What an excellent place to stay at the end of a long Pennine Way adventure

This was our stay for the last two section of our walk. Could not imagine how a host could create a more comfortable atmosphere for a walker than Collin and Joyce do. Offering a warm welcome, drying your boots, cooking good food, storytelling, driving us safe there and back to the wilderness. Finishing the Pennine Way is something special. Forest View is the place to do it.

Forest View replied: Thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review of your stay with us at the end of your Pennine way it is nice to hear that you were comfortable here. Joyce

An excellent hotel for walkers

259JohnF259, Bury, United Kingdom
I stayed here for two nights whilst on the Pennine Way and was greeted warmly by Colin. The premises were spotlessly clean, my room was fine and the bed really comfortable. The choice of food is limited but the roast chicken was superb - in fact it was so good I had it both nights. Colin's boot drying and cleaning were much appreciated. The bar and lounge area are set up so everyone can talk about the walk so far and those that have already done the stage to Trows Farm can pass on information. The pick up by Joyce from Trows Farm was without problem. Storm Ali was due to hit on the day of my final stage and Colin kept us all informed on the latest weather reports. It looked the night before that it would not be possible to walk the next day and I was so pleased when Colin said Joyce would be able to make the journey back to Trows Farm before the worst of the storm struck. This is an ideal place for anyone to stay, not necessarily just walkers.

Forest View replied: Thanks for your great review I am glad that Storm Ali held off long enough for you to do the last bit of your walk. I`m not sure I would have walked that day (I`m a wimp) but you were pretty determined and you did it well done. Joyce

Great stop on the Pennine Way

Janet S, Saint John, Canada
I stayed here for 2 nights on my Pennine walk. A 2-night stay in common as there is little choice between here and Kirk Yetholm. Many thanks to Colin and Joyce who look after everything. Colin cleans and dries all the hiking boots as the walkers come in. Joyce picks up walkers at the halfway mark between Byrness and Kirk Yetholm and drops you off at the same spot the next day as you continue to the end. Wifi is spotty and there's no TV service in the area. The inn is set up to encourage engagement between the various walkers and you can get tips from those who are a day ahead of you. There are limited dinner options but the portions are generous. The haggis was delicious. There's a good selection of alcoholic beverages. A full breakfast is available and you can order a sandwich for lunch. The inn also has a tuck shop that offers snacks and treats.

Forest View replied: It was good to meet you on your way through Byrness. Everything we do is a result of walkers asking for what they need. The menu is governed by my time spent late afternoon collecting walkers and bringing them back to Byrness. 3 starters , 5 meat mains, 3 veggie mains and 3 desserts are as much as it is sensible to put on in case I am delayed up in the hills collecting walkers. The haggis that you chose is one of our most popular choices I am glad that you enjoyed it. Joyce

Pennine Way stop off

Trevor L, Blackpool, United Kingdom
What an excellent walkers hotel!! Brilliant food and beer. Great service. Well done to Colin and Ann for running such a great place. Spotlessly clean too and you wont believe the 'boot drying service'!! Great stopping place on the Pennine Way.

Forest View replied: Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us Glad you enjoyed your dry boots.
