Ann & Danny welcome you to Gate House bed & breakfast. Gate House is a traditional sandstone house situated in a quiet location in the village of Melmerby. We are less than a minute’s walk from the excellent local pub, The Shepherds Inn and Melmerby village bakery.
Having lived in the Lake District for some years we have good local knowledge and we are only too happy to help you plan and make the most of your stay in one of England’s unspoilt areas.
We are very excited that the Tour of Britain will pass through Melmerby on Stage 5 of the tour, on Thursday 10th September. Along with many of the villagers, we will be out cheering on the teams as they whizz by! We still have vacancies for any of you keen to watch or cycle the stage ahead of the tour! Starting in Melmerby, Hartside is an 8K climb up to the rooftop of the Pennines with an average of 5.3% gradient, the welcome sight of Hartside Cafe symbolising the top of the climb, this is frequently listed as one of the UK’s best climbs.
