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 double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, the other has private facilities. The very fine local pub, which serves evening meals, is just 200 metres away.

Ideal place to stop before the assault on Hartside. This cluster of villages (Ousby, Melmerby and Gamblesby) is most atractive. Addingham is an 1860s home in the Eden Valley and Eileen and Alan have recently opened it. Keen walkers, they look forward to getting to know C2Cers. The house is just beyond the church and village green, about 300m after the road bends round to the right. Eileen and Alan are happy to run you to the nearest watering holes.
