Comments by walkers who stayed at Old Croft House in Kirkby Stephen on The Coast to Coast Path
 
Rachel and Nick were perfect hosts. Beautifully decorated cupcakes with tea on arrival and lots of sympathy and ice packs for my sprained ankle. The house was spacious, lots of books and a comfy room and interesting beautiful breakfast room. Would stay again.

We loved our stay at the Old Croft House while completing the C2C. The town house is full of charm and interest; the hosts wonderfully welcoming; breakfast was top notch. We were able to relax completely. Kirby Stephen offers many diversions and rewards exploration. We would love to return.

Stayed her mid September whilst doing the C2C. This was the first B&B on our walk where we were greeted with tea & cake which was very welcoming. A lovely large bedroom and en-suit situated at the front of the property. After having been walking for 6 days even after having used the bath we still found the foot spar very soothing. Excellent breakfast, would happily stay here again.

Excellent accommodation, great hosts and fantastic breakfasts. One of my favourites on the C2C, great location as well

One of our favourites. Interesting decor, lovely room and the whole felt like coming into a home. Tea and cake on arrival (on May 13th) were very welcome and the evening meal (chosen from an emailed menu in advance) was excellent - the best on the route. We were welcomed by the owner - and our cases had been taken to our rooms - a real plus as I don't travel light. It is right on the route - so handy for shops to stock up on blister plasters and snacks. I would definitely stay again if walking in the area and highly recommend to anyone visiting Kirkby Stephen.

Well placed on route. Fantastic old property. Well equipped, comfortable and spacious double ensuite. Bathroom was fabulously visual. Very clean with dramatic combination of old and modern decor. Lovely host and generous breakfast. I would book again.

Lovely stay. Warm welcome (even though later thatn 6!!). 2 fab rooms - 1 was more like a suite (even a DVD player), 1 a good sized double. Everything you could need in bathroom, including toiletries, foot spa and robes etc. Beds v comfy.

Pubs/Chip shops on doorstep & shops etc.

Breakfast was great - cooked to our requirements and lovely fresh fruit and fresh bread.

Owner very welcoming and provided advice re the walk etc.

Excellent B&B which is well located. lovely warm wellcome with tea & cake .Great room & breakfast. We would not stay any were else in Kirkby Stephen. Very highly recommonded. If on the c2c walk don't miss tea & scones at Ravenseat farm.

We stayed here in July 2010 and this was one of our favourite stays on the Coast to Coast. Chris was a very welcoming host and took our wet things to be dried and settled us into our lovely (very creatively styled) room and provided us with some very nice home made cake. The room and bathroom was equipped with everything you could imagine, and some more - even a chocolate from the Orton Chocolate factory on the bed! Dinner was very good (and good value) and we supplied our own wine from the co-op over the road with no charge for corkage. Breakfast was also very nice. Chris's care of her guests was particularly shown by the attentive way she helped one of or fellow guests who had problems with her feet.
We highly recommend Old Croft House to both Coast to Coasters and to other visitors to Kirkby Stephen.
Frank and Sue, left on 28 July 2010
 
 
Fussy, but very comfortable and footspa very welcome. Evening meal was very good - would recommend staying here - may well try to go back.
Ruth Midgley, left on 15 July 2010
 
 
We stayed in early May 2010 and had a very pleasant night. The house is a living library and antique museum, worth wandering about - if your tastes run to early 20th century fiction and nonfiction, set the evening aside for browsing the shelves! The evening meal sounded wonderful except we were looking for vegetarian dining and so visited the Indian restaurant nearby. The meal there was very good, but I wonder if we made the right choice... In any case, breakfast was very good and our hosts were delightful. Don't forget to fuss over the elderly border collie.
Scooter, left on 19 June 2010
 
 
This was an exceptional B&B and I can't sing it's praises enough. We arrived soaked to the skin from Shap and the wet things were whisked off to be dried she even put newspaper in our boots and lit the wood burner in the hall to help dry them. The room was very good and even had a footspa and towelling robes. Husband was a Chef and the meal reflected this and was good restaurant standard. Definitely 5*
Mrs Smith, left on 08 January 2010
 
 
Stayed here on 9th September and it was a charming place and lovely room. Plenty of eating places in Kirkby Stephen, as we didn't realise we had to book evening meal........another rookie error. However pub we ate in was excellent. The breakfast was brilliant and cooked to perfection. Highly recommend this place to stay as it is a bit of luxury

Arrived after allocated time for afternoon tea and scones, the look of dismay on our faces was enough for Chris in her usual lovely way to quickly rustle coffee and scones in the lounge, no problem to this lady who we call Wonder Women.
Evening meal excellent, many thanks to Colin and Chris for great stay, help and advice.
Don't miss this one

A gem. Stay here if you are stopping in Kirkby Stephen; I don't believe you will be disappointed.
Louise, left on 30 August 2009
 
 
Plethora of choice and competing excellent reviews for the Kirby Stephen hotels on the Sherpa site made deciding where to stay extremely difficult. However, extremely pleased we alighted on the Old Croft House. Visited in October 2007 when Chrys and Colin were thinking about not hosting for walkers anymore. So so pleased to see they are still on the site as it would have been an utter loss for Coast to Coasters. Utterly unique in terms of what they offer - yes, there is a suit of armour in the hall way and footspas in the bathrooms. And it works. We ended up by going out for Chinese - I really don't know what we were thinking. Don't get me wrong - the Chinese was great but the evening meal at Old Croft would have been better.
Marc and Alex, left on 05 July 2009
 
 
Lovely B&B with friendly hosts. House is quirky in style and full of interesting stuff, I had the single (small double really) room and had a roll top bath to die for. Evening meal was fantastic - the best food we had eaten for days and very welcome after a 20 mile walk. Highly recommended.
Lucy , left on 27 May 2009
 
 
My absolute favourite B&B on the whole route.. The decor, facilities and food were superlative. We had booked in for the evening meal. How fortuitous was that as I could not have walked any further. There was a Victorian bath and a footspa. Deepest joy! The hostess with the mostest even knew up-to-date route advice. Don't even think about going anywhere else in KS

Nice welcome on a wet day in early September. Its also offered a lovely two course dinner, well worth having..All in all a very pleasant b and b.

Nice place to stay. Very friendly welcome with tea and warm scones - yum! Comfy room with lots of free toiletries, foot spa etc.

We stayed here for two nights. The old croft house has loads of character. Our room was enormous! The bathroom was lovely. The food here was fantastic, they also do evening meals. They'd thought of everything, with a range of shower gels, a foot spa, hubba bubba machine for the bath, dressing gowns etc. It's right in the centre of Kirkby Stephen and it's a good place for a rest day. The laundrette is close by and you can get a massage from the Holistic Health centre just across the road, which can help ease those aching muscles.
Philippa & Leon, left on 18 July 2008
 
 
Lap of luxury here. Bathroom to die for, excellent breakfast, lots of cushions, carpets, drapery, pictures, things and more things including suit of armour in the hall. Just perfect after the long walk from Shap.

We stayed with Chrys (and Colin, who prefers to stay behind the screens mainly, but is a very warm person when you get a chance to engage with him) three times: first and last days and mid-point C2C. Chrys is a hearty person and likes to make wet and tired guests feel welcome and thoroughly catered for: not just excellent tea and scones but also a room that is oriented towards the needs of the walker, including the widest array of free toiletries (such as special foot powders and creams) we came across. If you take care over arrangements regarding food (which is indeed excellent, though the same limited menu was offered on all three occasions) and times (when exactly is breakfast going to be served?), which are fairly strict, then you'll be a very happy guest at this ornately decorated accommodation.
Gert and family, left on 20 October 2007
 
 
We stayed at Old Croft House on 21 June.

You can be assured of a warm welcome to their excellent B&B by Chrys and Colin. Old Croft House is thoughtfully decorated with delightful individual touches, the rooms are very comfortable and well equipped and afternoon tea in the lounge room is a treat. Dinner is excellent and not to be missed.

Breakfast matched the high standard set by every other aspect of Old Croft House - our third stay here and we would love to return.

Highly recommended.

Lovely house with lots of beautiful ornaments and books. Very comfortable, and excellent evening meal. Scones and tea on arrival and very good breakfast with fresh fruit.

Stayed July 11th 2007. Amazing room reflecting the whole house! Nice welcome from hostess, and home-made scones and fresh milk in a flask. Excellent en-suite bathroom/shower with foot spa and massager. Breakfast served at 8am prompt and in a hurry! The food was good (recommend the kipper). A fellow guest was told off for taking fruit from the buffet having ordered porridge... Evening meal at the Old Forge which was excellent (need to book).
Tim and Dot, left on 29 July 2007
 
 
We arrived absolutely soaked after a nightmare walk from Shap. With only 20 minutes to go until dinner, Chrys' welcome was very warm. She understood how we felt! Fantastic room and bathroom with all the luxuries that you could want. Food was excellent and was allowed to nip over to the Co-op to get chilled wine between courses. This is a remarkable building and was one of the highlights of our trip. Would have liked to have arranged a rest day here at Old Croft House had we known how we would feel at this stage of our walk. Highly recommended.

Lovely place with loads of character. Ensuite room was amazing and the evening meal was superb (not to be missed). Really friendly hosts - one of the best B&Bs we stayed in and great for a rest day. Stayed on 24th and 25th April 2007.
Marie & Ernest Derry, left on 08 May 2007
 
 
Delightful! A wonderful old house with lots of old furniture - quite an eclectic mix! The hosts are very friendly and helpful and the food superb. Tea and homemade cakes on arrival - delicious! An abundance of complimentary toiletries included. Their evening meal should not be missed. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic place to lose yourself in. Very warm, friendly and inviting - they even put newspaper in my boots after a wet days walking, and washed my clothes after another guest spilt a glass of red wine over me! Excellent food as well - thoroughly recommend the evening meal so don't forget to book it in advance. Nothing is too much trouble.
Neil Taylor, left on 19 July 2006
 
 
An eccentric warren of a place. A cornucopia of memorabilia, collectors' items and outrageous ornamentation. Very warm welcome and hospitality. Evening meals served, which we would recommend - though it is necessary (preferable?) to pre-book. Overall, highly recommended.
Barry & Annette Davies, left on 28 June 2006
 
 
We found the Old Croft House one of the nicest places to stay on the whole walk. Everything you can imagine has been thought of - even a foot spa in each room. Definitely recomend booking a meal here - the food is gorgeous - 3 course meal by candlelight, take your own wine, very romantic & the owners are lovely!

Absolutely the best B+B I stayed in on the C2C walk. The food is gourmet, the accommodation fantastic, and the level of personal service outstanding. Book this one immediately! You won't regret it!!
Byron Schmuland, left on 18 May 2006
 
 
A wonderfully quirky B&B (suit of armour in the hall) with a charming hostess. Arrived mid-afternoon and spent the rest of the day wishing I had booked to eat here - the aroma from the kitchen was fantastic.

Welcomed with tea and homemade cake and seated in the large, comfortable guest lounge.

Clean single room with separate private bathroom (with bath and shower) and a super selection of books to choose from if you were staying in.

Breakfast was excellent. Would recommend this to any walker.
Stuart Greig, left on 15 May 2006
 
 
A warm welcome as soon as we stepped through the door! The lady of the house immediately produced a bowl of water for our tired, thirsty sheepdog, and won a friend for life! We were offered a bath in a wonderful quirky old fashioned bathroom, complete with a traditional bathtub. Wonderful room. A fascinating and enjoyable place to stay. We had planned in a rest day here and there was no chance of becoming bored with a library of books to go at. The lady even recommended a walk along the river which was most enjoyable. Meals were amazing - gourmet qualty, far better than most hotels. We hope to stay here again.

Sound and helpful advice from Chrys when we were planning our C2C walk led us to expect that Old Croft House would be the right place to stay in KS. And so it was - from the very comfortable room to the exquisite dinner prepared by Colin. Chrys could not have been more pleasant and hospitable - to the point of asking us to e-mail her when we reached RHB to assure her of our safe arrival.

A delight! Again! Old Croft House is beautifully decorated (in places quirkily) and we had an outstanding room. Chrys and Colin really make you feel at home. There is so much to appreciate - great bedroom, welcoming afternoon tea, excellent dinner - cooked by Colin, served by Chrys (elegantly dressed - no fell-runner shoes), and a relaxing chat in the sitting room. Our second visit was as good as our memory of the first. We plan to return.

Very good indeed. We broke our walk in KS, so stayed here 2 nights in July and again in August. Would be worth eating here as there is NOWHERE worth eating in KS, unless you are willing to walk out to Nateby or Winton.

The 'blurb' cannot prepare you for walking in off the main street in KS in the 21stC, & into this wonderful piece of Georgiana; complete with trompe l'oeil paint effects & Phantom of the Opera candelabra!!! Our dble + ensuite even had a tented ceiling!!! Amazing. Have never been in such a well equipped room - our bag was slightly late arriving - yet we could have showered just using all the thoughful freebies provided. Tea & scones on arrival - super. Decided to eat here in the evening & weren't disappointed, excellent food, atmospheric candlelit ambience & excellent company in fellow C2C walkers met here for the 1st time & subsequently then met on & off until an emotinal final gathjering @ RHB. *****

Old Croft House is a must if you are walking Coast to Coast! Chrys made us feel right at home and very comfortable in this tastefully decorated house. Colin works magic in the kitchen and insured that I would not lose any weight while walking. Be sure to eat in when you stay here! I highly recommend this place!

We stayed at Old Croft House on 16 September. Chrys and Colin are excellent hosts and we were warmly welcomed into their attractively decorated B&B. Our room was a delight - great decor, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and with a deep bath.

Dinner is not to be missed - compliments to Colin - and it was extremely relaxing and enjoyable to chat with other guests in the comfortable sitting room -loved the candle lights.

Breakfast was delicious and we set off much refreshed. A very friendly stopover for C2C walkers - we have booked a return visit in 2005.
Marjorie & Harry Kensell, left on 24 October 2004
 
 
Nice place and nice food (both dinner and breakfast). This was one of the best B&B`s we stayed at and I would recommend this place to anyone, especially if they wanted to stay in the town. Warm welcome, nice surroundings, pleasant atmosphere and good food. What else could anyone ask for.

We had a 1 night stay and it was fantastic. The house is ideally situated and is full of charm and character. It is the best place we have stayed at. Chris made us feel really welcome and we enjoyed the home made cake! We can highly recommend the excellent evening meal and the breakfast was also great, compliments to the chef. We had a beautiful room and all the extra little touches made us feel really at home. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we plan to go back next year for longer.

This place was easily the best I stayed at on the trip, and I stayed in plenty of nice places. The room we had wouldn`t have looked at all out of place in a 5 star hotel, and shamed most 4 stars I`ve stayed at on business. Great evening meal and breakfast, lovely people (walkers themselves, which helps a lot), just excellent all round.

Hello,hello.Long time, no speak! We stayed in your wonderful abode just after you`d moved in. C2Cing with a stinky tent,clothing (which you washed brilliantly) and come to think of it we were pretty stinky too! Until we`d used your lovely bathroom and foot spa. If you remember we`d luckily chosen our rest day at your place and I still have a vision of a perfect sunny afternoon lazing in your garden whilst the parrots flew overhead. You plied us with warm home-made scones and jam and we wrote our postcards home and tended to our sore feet and disheveled boots, whilst all the time Andrea Bocelli rang out in the background. Heaven, sheer heaven. Yours is a fabulous B&B and you are lovely people. Health and happiness Mike, Jan and Jay Cowan.

I will have to join the merry throng in heaping praise on this B&B. Excellent in every way. Chrys and Colin are real experts in the art of hospitality. One little point, not all rooms have their own bath, so when booking do ask. A shower isn`t quite the same after the long walk from Shap!!
Trevor Lewis, left on 05 November 2003
 
 
Fantastic. Without doubt, the best B&B I`ve stayed in ever. Great rooms, great welcome, great food. Amazing place. I will be back.

A really warm welcome and a fantastic room - fluffy towels, crisp sheets etc made this the perfect first night stop - we`ll definitely try to stay here on our way back through Kirby Stephen. Breakfast was excellent and the pack lunch extensive (had to keep eating bits to reduce the weight!). Dinner looks like a good option too.
Louise and Nigel Papworth (plus Fred), left on 10 September 2003
 
 
Best B&B we stayed in and definitely the best meals we`ve had on the whole 13 day trip!
Will be going back.

a great welcome with all the extras, footspa, cakes/tea on arrival, squash and tea in room and all smellies, bath robes etc etc- great. Wish we had known of the quality of the evening meals beforehand. Thanks for a fine stay.
Pete M, left on 04 August 2003
 
 
This was just a superb B&B. Very highly recommended. Chrys helped is book dinner in the Old Forge which was quite good. Would also not hesitate to book an evening meal in advance at the house as Colin is a chef (we didn`t know this in advance).

Try the foot spa. Holy cow, what a treat, my wife was in heaven. Great place to schedule a rest day if you`re able to do so as the walk from Shap is LONG.
Ken Smith, left on 13 July 2003
 
 
We had a lovely stay here - Chrys is very friendly & the food was delicious (cooked by Colin). The decor is great! Hope to return sometime...

this was a wonderful B&B. Rooms beautifully decorated, really nice owners. We had evening meal after the long trek from Shap - the best food we had on our trip - colin is a very good chef. Needless to say breakfast also very good and wonderful home made scones. We will visit here again for a weekend. Food in B&B `Excellent`

This was a wonderful place. Very very genuine friendly and beautiful rooms decorated in a Victorian style. The owners had thought of everything. I cannot recommend it highly enough & will go back for a weekend sometime.

This is the `Jewel in the Crown` of all the B&Bs on the C2C. If you miss this one out - you`re mad. The house is out of this world. The welcome was fantastic as was the room. The evening meal was also something not to be missed - it was just outstanding value - you quickly realise that Colin is a chef! We will certainly visit again for a `pamper` weekend. This was the best. Thank you Chrys and Colin.

Quite simply the best overnight accommodation I have ever stayed in. Chris has thought of everything that could make your stay as comfortable as possible, and the place oozes atmosphere. It is also conveniently located at the heart of KS. I have not stayed anywhere else in Kirkby Stephen but it doesn`t come any better than this.
Richard Bell, left on 31 August 2002
 
 
For a stay in Kirkby Stephen this is the ONLY guest house to book in to. As previously mentioned by other reviews and talking to other walkers later, my thoughts are not alone. It is situated in a perfect place, for night time ammenities and particularly for the next day on the Coast to Coast. You would do well to find a friendlier landlady on the Coast to Coast route or a better breakfast. Chrys has local walking knowledge and books in the lounge to match. You will be welcomed with a friendly smile and a room that you will not find better. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
Doug & Charlotte Burke, left on 22 August 2002
 
 
This is an absolutely beautifully decorated house and our room was lovely, including the promised foot spa. We had toasted tea cakes, cake and biscuits with our tea when we arrived. The bed was the most comfortable we had in any B&B on the walk and we had a fantastic nights sleep. There was beautifully presented fruit with breakfast. There were loads of books all over the house, the lounge was very comfy with lots of walking and wildlife books to browse through. We were made to feel very welcome and I can`t recommend the Old Croft House highly enough.
Sacha Ackland, left on 10 August 2002
 
 
This has to be the best place we stayed on route and possibly the best B&B we have ever stayed at. The house is in an ideal spot in the Market Square. It is beautifully old with nooks and crannies and the decor is fantastic (created by a theatre designer). The hospitality is warming (Chrys is great and could not do enough), the food delicious and surprising, too (the pikelets as well as cakes and biscuits on our arrival, breakfast with fresh fruit, dates and trail mix as well as the usual cereals and cooked meal, all to a very high standard). The room was so comfortable - we testify to the foot spa! An unforgettable stay.
