We stayed here while starting the Westmorland Way. It is convenient for the station situated at the top of the hill overlooking the valley. Room was pleasant and a there was good breakfast. Royal Oak pub is just down the road for an evening meal.

John and Mary were fabulous hosts and always willing to help out with requests. The accommodation was comfortable and the beautiful and extensive gardens provided a lovely view and a nice place to wander or just sit and take in the countryside. Breakfasts were plentiful and very tasty. Ideal location and walking distance to pubs, the supermarket and the town...

Very welcoming and comfortable - and we were lucky enough to have a balcony where we could sit and soak up the late afternoon sunshine - very tasty breakfast, handy for a stroll around Appleby and excellent service - the owner provided a "taxi" collection from Dufton at the end of our walk and returned us the next day.

The size was fine, and the bathroom and toilet just round the corner, so it wasn't a problem. There was a washbasin in the room. My only adverse comment is that the decor of the room was a...

Bongate House was a lovely stay for us for 2 nights in Appleby.
