Bump your way up the farm track to Brenda’s sturdy house, high on the Pennine Way. The spring water makes wonderful tea, the ginger scones are delicious and the house hums with interest and artistic touches. Comfy sofas are jollied up with throws, there are homespun rugs and hangings, paintings, plants and a piano. Feed the hens, plonk your boots by the Aga, chat with your lovely hostess as she turns out fab home cooking; food is a passion. Bedrooms are exuberant, comfortable and cosy, it’s great for walkers and there’s a hot tub under the stars (bookable by groups in advance). Good value with a relaxed, homely feel.
