An Amazing Stay!
What a special place Lockholme is where do I start? I decided to book for my husband’s birthday as we love the surrounding area. When we arrived, we were greeted and made to feel special by Chrissie, who made us a cup of tea and had made Dan a birthday cake! Our room was gorgeous , full of special touches like chocolates and a greeting card also, importantly, spotlessly clean. We ate out locally and really enjoyed the recommended pub food. After a ‘wet’ walk (well it is February) we were able to dry our coats and boots off in the drying room at Lockholme which, for walkers, is a huge bonus. Last but not least we had a great night’s sleep in the most comfortable beds followed by a superbly cooked delicious breakfast! We will return. Thank you.
We had a wonderful stay with Chrissie and Joe they were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble (laundry, packed lunch with home made cake!)… room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable after a long day walking the coast to coast. Joe even provided us with an umbrella for the short walk to the pub… Thanks for a fantastic stay we will be back…
Home from Home
If you are thinking of staying at Lockholme
There’re a few things that you should know;
The Landlady’s name is Chrissie
And the Entertainer’s name is Joe.
Now, Chrissie’s attention to details
Is evident for all to see,
In the helpful notes around the house
And she only uses Yorkshire Tea!
The delights of this lovely home,
Which can’t be learnt from any book,
Are all the precious little treasures,
Found in every corner, cranny and nook,
But Joe’s contribution is more subtle,
His life comments are some of the best ‘uns.
He is the foundation that Lockholme is built on.
And more importantly, he loves his Westerns.
So, to all you intrepid walkers,
Who are attempting some coast-to-coasting
The best place to stay is Lockholme.
That’s just a fact… no boasting!
Thank you, Chrissie & Joe
