Bed & Breakfast: Keld Lodge
Starting Time: 9:40 AM Ending Time: 3:45
The meals at the Keld Lodge were quite good. I have to note because of the at atmosphere I was expecting the typical "pub" grub choices. The restaurant there is a step up though. I had chicken breast with a garlic sauce wrapped in Parma ham with vegetables. It was so nice to get a big plate of beans, cauliflower, and carrots rather than a side of chips. My arteries were very thankful.
|Loved chatting with Nick|
I also have to give a shout out to Nick as he was fantastic. As soon as we had arrived he sorted out our wet boots, got them in the drying room for us, and made sure we got settled right proper. Another place you'll want to stay when traveling on the Coast to Coast!

We stopped at a pub in Gunnyside and it seemed everyone else had as well. Many familiar faces from the last couple days were already there enjoying a break from the wind as well as some refreshments. After about 45 minutes we departed (you can tell it was a shorter walk day as we would never have stopped so long on a longer milage day) and headed down the road to Reeth.
|Greeted with cake in Reeth!|
Later, we had suggested that we were a little tired and may just go buy some food in town to bring back and eat in our room. I could see the look on Peter wasn't receptive to that and he seemed embarrassed to say he'd rather we eat in the restaurant as they had had some "disasters" with people eating up in their rooms. Fair enough....so Gabriel and I hoofed it to The Buck House where we had dinner in another public house. Tomorrow it's off to Richmond and the largest town we encounter on the Coast to Coast.
