Forest View B&B and Bunk House,
NE19 1TS,
01830 520425

Bed only:  £21.00

The information concerning accommodation and facilities available at Forest View can be a little confusing when researching online.  Now for the facts.  They are no longer an independent hostel within the YHA group.  They can provide dinner, breakfast and lunches for those staying in the bunk house.  The bunk house is clean and airy.  There are only single beds (no top bunks!).  Communal sitting and dining rooms.  Good telly.  Coffee and tea provided but with a request to donate to the North East Air Ambulance (what walker wouldn’t?).  Towels available for a £2 hire. Bar available to those staying in the bunk house.  Free transport for drop off and pick up points to those tackling the final Cheviot stage in two.

Expected walking time: 6h 21min
