There is not a lot of choice when it comes to accommodation in Byrness. This place apparently is sometimes a B&B and sometimes self-catering, but I rang Kate and she was happy to book me in. I had a really comfortable stay, and some good chats with Kate. She cooked an excellent evening meal as well as breakfast and when I had an urge to have a glass of wine, her husband kindly picked a bottle up on the way home .. a very civilised place, and bang on the Pennine Way, so highly recommended. If I had a nit to pick there was no soap or shampoo etc.. but not worth downrating for such a trivial thing. Towels were nice fluffy ones :-)

Three generations of our family [aged 1-64] went to Byrness for New Year and had a fantastic time. It has a lovely, slightly faded elegence. The kitchen is the best I have ever had in self-catering - a huge gas & electric range, 2 sinks, 2 fridges and a full sized freezer, lots of cupboard place and, wonder of wonders, really sharp knives. Of course the kitchen needs to be good as you will do a lot of cooking ..........there is nowhere close enough to walk to for a meal! There's a wonderful kitchen table that seats eight easily and in the dining room a huge table that fits 12-14 [and there's enough cutlery and crockery for that number. The sitting room is large with three big old sofas and a huge TV/DVD/Freenet. There are stereos in both rooms. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms. Because of water pressure issues there is a knack to how to use the showers and you can't use all three at the same time [or if the washing machine is running]. Also is you are having a shower it takes ages for the cisterns to refill for a flush. The same is true for the heating system as it seemed at first that the house was always too hot. However, with the help of Kate the owner we got it sorted. The other thing was that, because of the thickness of the walls the wi-fi was very unreliable. These are all problems of old buildings, heating systems and water pressure - there isn't anything actually wrong with any of the things [but it is wise to know about it in advance] There's lots of parking, a nice garden with beautiful views across Redesdale, easy access to great scenery and you are within 100 metres of the Pennine Way. Also you can walk up the hillside behind the house into lovely woodland. The owners live in the adjoining property, They are friendly and helpful but never intrusive. This property isn't for everyone. If you want up to the minute luxury with jacuzzi, steam room, streamed Netflix this isn't for you. However if you want a place with bags of space a character and a great kitchen this is the place for you

Can you imagine a place where the hosts offer to wash your walking socks? Or take your boots to dry them? And serve delicious food and beer? And make good sandwiches? And drive walkers to and from the next stage of the Pennine Way? There could be no better place to say for any walker - or anyone who wants to experience one of the wildest and remotest places in Britain.

You can now hire the whole place for groups, which is what we did and had and excellent stay. The owners now reside next door and are on hand if required. This is a fantastic place for a family break and had the run of the house was just perfect. An hour from the coast but Keilder Forrest is close and Hadrians Wall is 30 mins away.

Had a lovely stay at the Byrness Hotel - lovely room, bath and a home cooked meal by Catherine. There is a small bar and garden where there was a band playing in the afternoon and a marquee, which gave a great atmosphere. Catherine was so helpful and gave us details of a fabulous B&B (Cocklawfoot Farm) half way between Byrness and Kirk Yetholm. I would not hesitate to recommend the Byrness Hotel as the best place to stay in Byrness.
