Comments by walkers who stayed at Bramaskew in Sedbergh on The Dales Way
A lovely location. After a long day's walk on a very hot day, Janet was very accommodating & made us several long cold drinks. We had agreed that we would like a veggie type meal or salad and, as it was hot, Janet had prepared an excellent salad with home-made quiche, sausage roll, ham and new potatoes.

We stayed the night of June 26, 2016 while walking the Dales Way. Our bedroom was huge with an ensuite. Our hosts Janet and James gave us a warm welcome at the end of a long and very wet day! There was a fire burning and lots of newspaper to stuff in our soggy boots to dry them for the next day. We had an evening meal which was awesome and enjoyed it with another walker Alan that we met earlier on the walk. A great place and friendly hosts!. Loved it.

Didn't book with sherpa as walked in march out of season.This is a must stay on this section of the walk.Its worht walking the extra 2.5 miles on from Sedbergh. This is a working farm and one of the best for us on the walk.
Arrived wet and Janet put our boots and waterproofs to dry .
Shown to a very large bedroom with king size bed ,and settee in. with views towards the lune viaduct.
Tea,coffee making facilities in the room and lovely en-suite shower room.
Take the 2 course evening meal option that Janet provides.Best evening meal we had on the walk, Followed by an excellent full English breakfast .
Packed lunches can be provided.

I would choose This B&B over any other in this area. Right on the Dales Way, the family will either cook dinner for you (which if breakfast was anything to go by would be first class) or they will drive you into Sedburgh. Hit it on a Thursday and the Thai night in the local cafe is well worth a vist. Our favourite stay on the walk.

We stayed here on 17th May 2013. What a fabulous place. Janet and her family were very friendly and made us feel so welcome. The room was lovely and spacious. Janet made us an evening meal, which was delicious, all home made, including gluten free Yorkshire Puddings, and Rhubarb Crumble. We would certainly recommend this accommodation.
John and Julie, left on 24 May 2013
This place was a little gem and we were met with a wonderful warm welcome from Janet, who took our boots and put them in front of the roaring fire.
Our dinner was amazing and it felt like we had come home. It was just lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Would recommend this place to anyone.
The next day when our friends arrived to walk with us Janet made them ALL very welcome and let them park their cars.
Just a perfect place and such a lovely lady.

I submitted a report a few day ago - how long does it take for the 'moderation' process. I have contacted Janet to let her see what I submitted. Perhaps it did not reach you? So here goes again:-

My companion and I reached Bramaskew in a really soggy and sweaty condition - Janet was not at all deterred - she treat us like long lost friends - taking our muddy sodden boots and waterproofs from us to start the drying process immediately - it was just the welcome we wanted but did not of course expect! What a delightful place to stay. Our room was a twin room - it was so warm and cosy. The power shower was the best that I have ever experienced relaxing aching legs and shoulder muscles from carrying our heavy sacks ( we did not use the Sherpa service - but hope you will still use this report!! ) I had pre-booked us an evening meal - thank goodness!!! What a meal it was - individual beef casseroles - new potatoes (from Janet's allotment) - garden peas and home made braised red cabbage - it was truly superb. We then had a choice of sweet - we both chose the rhubarb crumble with ice cream ( once again the rhubarb was from Janet's allotment) This really was home from home - I cannot over-emphasise how great it is to stay at Bramaskew - why not stay for a day or two or three - you will love it!!! Thank you Janet XXXX

I stayed at Janet's home on the sixth day of my Dales Way trek - Monday 2nd July 2012. What a wonderful welcome my walking companion and I were given by the lass herself. We were wet and soggy but that did not deter her. Our wet coats and boots were taken from us right way and were put near a lovely warming stove. Janet showed us to our twin bedded room that was so very warm and inviting - just what we needed after a very tiring day. After a brilliant power shower - the best shower ever - it helped relax the aching legs and shoulder muscles from carrying the heavy sacks - we did not use the Sherpa service but I hope this report will still be published!!! The meal we had pre-ordered was absolutely wonderful. Very large individual beef stews with new potatoes - from her own garden - garden peas and braised red cabbage. It certainly filled a big gap and helped restore our energy. There was a choice of sweet - we both chose rhubarb crumble and ice cream - once again the rhubarb was from her allotment. Breakfast in the morn was a superb offering!!! I started with porridge and then the Full English - it certainly was a full English and more - the very best of our trek without the shadow of a doubt - the eggs had been laid by her own hens - lovely almost orange yolks - definitely free range. I cannot over-emphasise how good Bramaskew is - book a day or two or three and you will not be disappointed. Janet's local knowledge was a great help - a bridge had been swept away and she gave me a large scale map of the suggested diversion.

Bramaskew is a beautifully located working farm directly on one of the finest sections of the Dales Way and enjoying terrific views of the Lune valley and the Howgills. The welcome was warm; the en-suite rooms were large, clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The evening meal and breakfast were both excellent. A stay at Bramaskew is well worth the additional miles walking from Sedbergh (or a taxi for the desperate), particularly for those who intend spending the previous night in Cowgill or Dent. I would recommend Bramaskew without hesitation and hope to visit again.
Steve W, left on 24 April 2012
A family home, Bramaskew is a good B&B. Large room with double aspect and bijou ensuite shower room. Evening meal was very good as was the well cooked breakfast. A good overnight stay.

John Francis, left on 24 October 2011
Delightful home right on the path, really felt like part of the family- and what a nice family! Room was clean and very comfortable. We were made very welcome and were even able to do some washing. Dont be tempted to get a lift to a nearby town for an evening meal as you will miss a delicious home cooked meal - great value! Highly recommend a stop at Bramaskew!
Cheryl and Brian Turner Sept 2011, left on 13 October 2011
An excellent B&B - great location, lovely room, good food and a real welcome - we would definitely recommend this as a stop on the Dales Way.
Beth & Tony Fennerty, left on 29 September 2011
What a wonderful place. We were welcomed by Janet who took our wet boots to dry by the fire - even in July. The room was large and airy with spectacular views. The evening meal was excellent as was the breakfast and packed lunch. Janet and her family were the perfect friendly hosts. Certainly our favourite B and B on the Dales Way.
Jenny and Ian Park, left on 29 July 2011
Beautiful farmhouse in idyllic location and right on the Dales Way - well worth walking the extra distance from Sedbergh.

Lovely room with huge bed and power shower. Evening meal, breakfast and packed lunch all superb. And there were three kittens to play with!

We did decline James's offer of giving us a pedicure while the sheep were getting their hooves done though!

Would definitely recommend.

The best B&B of the whole walk.
We arrived soaking wet and were made to feel very welcome by Janet (& Bella the dog). She took our wet boots and put them by the fire while we took off our jackets. We were shown up to a very large and comfortable room. After a rest and a hot shower we had the best meal of the week, Beef casserole followed by plum crumble. Just perfect after a long day!. The breakfast was great the next morning. We would recommend that anyone doing the dales way stays here.
Andrew & Karen, left on 03 October 2010
We stayed at Bramaskew farmhouse B&B when walking the Dalesway this summer. It was the best B&B of our week - Janet is a fabulous host and it is in an amazing setting. The rooms are lovely, the views of the Howgills breathtaking and the food delicious. It's also extremely good value. We would thoroughly recommend it to any Dalesway walkers and will definitely return.
Chloe Palmer, left on 24 September 2010
We would thoroughly recommend Bramaskew. We had an excellent large room with a good en-suite. Janet and James were very friendly hosts and the accommodation is very good value for money and right on the Dales Way!

Bramaskew is a really delightful place to stay. Right on the route. Beautifully decorated rooms, great breakfast & a friendly owner who will provide a hearty packed lunch & low cost taxi service into Sedburgh for evening meal!
David Benson, left on 04 July 2010
Everything you could hope for from a B&B Warm hospitality, lovely food, a delightful room, a comfortable bed, wonderful views...... I could go on but you get the idea. The extra miles on from Sedbergh seemed hard but we're so glad we did them. Plan your Dales Way walk around a night here. It'll be worth it!
John & Denise Roberts, left on 02 May 2010
Best B&B stay all week.
Also the cheapest!

Our host Janet Postlewaite and her family were very friendly and helpful and took us into Sedburgh for evening meal.
All in all a great night stay and would thoroughly reccomend Bramaskew.
Terry Owen, left on 20 April 2010
Janet and James made us very welcome from the moment we arrived and were waved in to the farmhouse kitchen to dry our things in front of the fire. Our room was recently built and equipped to a high standard. We accepted the offer of a personal taxi service to and from Sedbergh for the evening and enjoyed a lovely farm breakfast that set us up for the next day.
Ian and Tim Campbell, left on 27 September 2009
The stretch from Sedbergh to here is deceptive, and we did it in a cloudburst, so arrived like two drowned rats to a tremendous welcome, an excellent shower, a lovely room and a superb evening meal. One of the best!
Jeff Hancock, left on 27 July 2009
The whole family made us feel welcome,our room was wonderful and Janet made us a great dinner. Im glad we walked the extra miles from Sedbergh. Also thanks for drying our boots. July 2009

This was our best stop on the Dales Way. We arrived in pouring rain and were welcomed by Janet and her girls who did all they could to dry us out!
Lovely spotless accommodation, hot shower inclusing soap and shampoo, comfy beds and a delicious meal. All you need for bed and breakfast on a long distance walk.
Janet your reputation for the most delicious sticky toffee pudding goes before you! Thank you.
Sally Wale and Rosie Smith, left on 23 June 2009
This was such a wonderful find, Janet and her family made us so very welcome. The ensuite bedrooms were spacious light and airy with wonderful views across to the Howgills. Janet provided a fabulous evening meal with sticky toffee pudding to die for. Highly recommeded.
