Friendly village pub, geared to your needs - particularly where beer is concerned. There's a frequently changing selection of real ales from all over Britain and the Rookhope Inn is recommended by the Good Beer Guide and has a 5-star Cask Marque commendation. A range of traditional dishes is always available, using locally sourced ingredients where possible. Delightful setting and great fun and popular with C2Cers. Rooms have been refurbished and now have TVs. The food here comes in for high praise.

Barrington Bunkhouse is both homely and cosy, offering a warm welcome to C2Cers. It is directly on the route and right next door to The Rookhope Inn, which offers good beer and substantial fare. The communal bunkroom consists of 6 bunks, one fold-out bed, and a seating area in the middle of the room. There is a self-serve continental breakfast from a well stocked kitchen. There are 2 showers, 2 toilets, one with disabled facilities, a tumble dryer, secure bike storage, and an attractive patio. The owners are a musical bunch, so musicians are very welcome to borrow a guitar and have a go!
