Run by: Simon & Kirsty Cogan
An ideal place to stop before the assault on Hartside, located just under 2 miles from the C2C route (mostly downhill). Addingham View is an 1860's sandstone home, situated in the tranquil farming village of Gamblesby. You can be sure of a warm welcome from Simon and Kirsty after a hard day's cycling, with home made cake on arrival. All guest rooms are fully en-suite and have recently been redecorated. The dining table can be set for you if you would like to bring your evening meal, or alternatively lifts to the pub are available if you prefer to eat out.
Run by: Michael & his team
Excellent new resource on the route, taken over last summer by Michael and Paul and their small team. Paul bakes the breads and cakes in the old kitchen and the team make the jams and chutneys. The shop does cakeaways, there's fresh home-made soup, home-baked quiche every day, plus pies and full lunches as well as paninis, sandwiches, lemon drizzle cakes, a Bakery burger plus a hearty breakfast. It's organic, it's home made - it's the Melmerby Bakery as it originally was.
Opening hours: Mon-Thurs: 9.30-4.30; Fri-Sat 9-5; Sun 9.30-5.

A warm welcome awaits as does a delicious and nutritious breakfast at this period sandstone detached house. As locations go along the C2C, this is hard to beat: at the foot of Hartside, you get the biggest climb out of the way first thing. Gate House has two rooms, one double room with en-suite shower, one twin room with private facilities. A further single room is also available upon request. The very fine local pub, which serves evening meals, is just 200 metres away. Ann and Danny are wonderful hosts and Danny works on the C2C so knows it back to front.
