Comments by walkers who stayed at Village Farm Camping Barn in Brompton-on-Swale on The Coast to Coast Path
This is a very peaceful and quiet place to stay, with hot water, comfortable beds, full kitchen equipment and books to read. It is much more than the usual camping barn - much better equipped. A very warm welcome from the Farm, plus a great dog who is ace at dribbling a football across the yard!!
For Coast to Coasters, there is a great short cut down the south bank of the Swale and over the wooden farm bridge - this is really worth doing but carefully choose your place to descend so that it is as close to the bridge as possible, as the south bank is thick with brambles.

Stayed here 16 August 2010 - family of 5. Good, well-priced basic accommodation in lovely old barn in farmyard setting (complete with horse, geese etc.). Basic YH bunks and shower upstairs. Well equipped kitchen and lounge downstairs. Friendly owners made us a cup of tea on arrival. Well-stocked shop across road opens long hours.

Left the route before St Giles farm and crossed the river on the old Bailey bridge, then by the riverside into Brompton.The friendly welcome including cup of tea and cakes was appreciated. The kitchen dining area is comprehensively supplied with equipment etc and the lounge area with TV and soft furnishings is good to relax in.
The local pub did not cater on the Tuesday night so we were given a lift to the Farmers Arms at the end of the village for a good meal (recommended).
The barn is very good value for money and we enjoyed staying there.

This place is much better value than a YH and should be classed as a bunk house not a camping barn. I'm sure a lot of people don't even know what a camping barn is, I didn't. There is a large common room with sitting area, kitchen and TV. At 9 including the sleeping sheet this is a bargain. Mrs Wilkin is very kind and helped me in my hour of need with arranging transport of my bag when I decided I didn't want to be a pack horse any longer. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the route. Well recommended.

At just 8 per night this must represent one of the best accommodation options for anyone walking the coast to coast route.

The welcome was warm and friendly - a nice pot of tea and cakes awaited me on arrival.

The bunk rooms are more spacious than many other hostels and the facilities are comprehensive and perfectly adequate.

For real rustic charm and value for money in a splendid farmyard setting this would be hard to beat.

Excellent accommodation - just like youth hostels used to be years ago. Good basic, clean and cheap accommodation - all we needed.

The barn is now linked to the YHA and can be booked through them. The owners were welcoming and helpful and the barn is very well equipped although the electricity (except for the lighting ) is paid for by coin in the slot meter. Did I say it was only 8 per person per night? Excellent value.
