Drink and Buffet

nice clean good food the owners are very nice friendly people good selection of 3 draft and many bottle beerd very reasonable prices Byrness is a very small village plenty of walks set in Keilder forest 5 1/2 miles from Scottish Border 45 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne many forest walks a good place to get away from the hustle and bustle I recommend a stay.

Lovely Homely B&B With Great Hosts.

Stopped over for 1 night on a mountain biking trip to Kielder. Arrived there filthy and wet and nothing was too much trouble for Colin who put all my wet gear in the drying room and even stuffed my shoes with newspaper! Room was nice and clean with a separate clean private bathroom. Colin was a great host and made me feel really welcome and at home. What I assume was an old lounge in the building has been transformed into a little bar area which was a great meet and greet area before dinner. Joyce served up some lovely home cooked goodness which hit the spot perfectly after a day of riding (or walking). I understand this place is very popular with the Pennine Way walkers and it is not hard to see why. Highly recommended due to the welcoming hospitality, good rooms/facilities and lovely food.

Friendly owners, unique experience

My husband and I went to countless inns, restaurants, and pubs while we were in the UK hiking the Pennine Way, but the Forest View Walkers Inn was by far the most unique experience we had. To begin the evening, we sat in a cozy living room drinking beer from the inn's tap, exchanging stories and laughs with other walkers. If that wasn't fun, the owners encourage getting to know everyone else so they sat us with a different couple. We laughed and laughed and learned a lot about the other two individuals. We had a lot of fun and it was great to meet new people. The food and company were great and the bunkhouse for hikers might as well be a separate part of the hotel; it was clean, quiet, and spacious. We slept very well for our last night in civilization before the end of the hike.

An essential stop on the Pennine Way - brilliant place to stay and great shuttle service

There are over 40 miles between Bellingham and Kirk Yetholm, so the Pennine Way needs somewhere in between and thank heavens for the Forest View. The owners, Colin and Joyce, are both loads of fun and the best hosts I had along the Way. They have a whole range of funny tales to share and are genuine, good people. The food is absolutely top notch and was included in the package I paid for. I stayed two nights here and was more than happy to do so. The breakfasts were also great and they were happy to satisfy any particular requests. The free pick up/drop off service is a life saver and enables you to cut the Cheviot traverse in two, rather than crawl into Kirk Yetholm totally exhausted. They provide you with an instruction sheet for how to get to Trows Farm from Windy Gyle that really could not be any clearer. My friend was staying with his family, but he was also offered the service, provided he joined us for his evening meal. He was raving about the delicious food afterwards! I really loved my stay here and understand why this place is a PW institution. Every walker should try and stay here and with both rooms and a bunkhouse, there is something for every budget. Plus the sandwiches are delicious too. 5 stars!!!!!

Pennine Way

Colin and Joyce are great hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. The accommodation, food and transport were all excellent (not to mention the choice of four cask ales in the bar!). The Forest View Walkers Inn is a true highlight of the Pennine Way.
