B&B at Cocklawfoot is a hit!

30th September 2016

The most northerly leg of the Pennine Way covers 27 miles from Byrness to Kirk Yetholm over the challenging terrain of the Cheviot Hills. There are several ways to tackle this long and arduous walk to make the most of the stunning scenery. The most recent addition to the list is a half way stop at Cocklawfoot Farm B&B. Located 2.2 miles downhill off the Pennine Way this farm B&B will drive you all the way back up to the trail the next morning. Christina who runs the B&B is receiving great reviews including this one from Vince who stayed recently:


"Hello Heather. You advised me to break the last 27 miles to Kirk Yelholm and gave me details of Christina Flintoff who is doing B&B at Cocklaw Foot Farm.

It was good advice and the B&B turned out to be best on the walk for me.

The 3 mile walk down off the path was easy, lovely views but long, however the lift back up in the morning was the all the more welcome. It meant my last day was an easy walk with time to spare and admire the best of the Cheviots. The room was comfortable and spacious, the food excellent, the price very reasonable and Christina was an excellent cheery host.

I cannot recommend this halfway stop highly enough."


You also have the option to book with one of the accommodation providers in Byrness, such as the Forest View Inn, who will pick you up and drop you off at the half way point on this last leg. Splitting the last day is optional, but will give you more time and energy to appreciate the surroundings, and for most people, to enjoy your last day on the Pennine Way!
