Pennine Way Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest lists details of Pennine Way accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, guidebooks and maps, and public transport. We also include services website and map location links.
After walking many miles, however enjoyable, most walkers do not want to waste valuable energy and time on accommodation which is far from the path. As much as possible, we give the distance from the path of each accommodation, camping and other services in our list.

Pennine Way Accommodation Types
We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Pennine Way Accommodation, Mileage and Services Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of Pennine Way accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of Pennine Way accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) means you will be sharing the same house as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information; we welcome Pennine Way accommodation recommendations and updates.
Restaurants and Pubs
Of course, Pennine Way accommodation is not the only consideration. Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. We have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants and their proximity to the Pennine Way, especially regarding whether pubs serve real ale and/or food. But restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
Not everyone will want to walk the Pennine Way in a single hit. For those who wish to split the walk into sections, we have included train station information on the relevant Pennine Way location pages, and also include bus services links to/from stations. To assist in planning your walk we have also placed the Pennine Way Public Transport on a single page.
Splitting the Pennine Way into more manageable sections
Here’s a secret: it is NOT necessary to walk the Pennine Way in one go. Many people have time constraints, and other will be worried about the on-going effect of around three-weeks walking. To that end, the walk can be split into more manageable sections. One good option is to split it into three one-week sections:
- Edale to Horton in Ribblesdale: 88 miles
- Horton in Ribblesdale to Alston: 87 miles
- Alston to Kirk Yetholm: 82½ miles
There is plenty of Pennine Way accommodation and other services at all those locations.
Also, the last, long day from Byrness to Kirk Yetholm can be broken into two sections.
