It was (another!) rainy evening when I arrived at the door of intake Farm. Walking the C2C, I was looking for refuge for the night. My dog (Charlie) and I just needed a little spot for our tent. We were warmly welcomed like ‘old friends’ by Judith at the door and asked to come in out of the rain (dog too!). We were duly given a seat at the kitchen table and a much needed cup of tea….and slice of cake! I was allowed to shower and, when refreshed, put up the tent. Once inside, a good nights sleep ensued, but this was not the end of our hospitality. In the morning a superb breakfast (really scrumptious!) set me up for the last leg of the walk. I was sad to leave Intake Farm after just one night, but I shall be back……perhaps next time minus tent (but with Dog!!).
Thank you, Judith and Robert, for your hospitality, it was a real joy to meet such a lovely couple – in such a lovely setting.

A great place to stay. Your welcomed into their home and given fantastic home cooked food, what more can you offer those on the coast to coast?
We stopped here on our final night of the coast to coast and it was the perfect end to the walk.
What a fantastic place to stay on the coast to coast, very friendly welcome and the food is superb, 3 course evening meal with all the trimmings – more than enough to eat. Breakfast too was excellent. A great nights sleep was had – I was almost sad to leave – but need to return for more home cooked food.
If you’re doing the Coast to Coast Walk you really don’t want to miss the chance to stay at Intake Farm. Judith and Robert are fantastic hosts, Judith’s cooking is wonderful and the setting is beautiful. Six of us (plus 4 dogs) arrived after a weary day trudging through the rain. We were welcomed with a smile, a mug of tea & a delicious cake. It was still raining hard, Robert very kindly let us bed down for the night in the hay barn rather than pitch tents. We then enjoyed an excellent dinner before retiring for a very comfortable night’s sleep. Breakfast was perfect as well, we left feeling so much better than when we arrived! I hope very much to return one day.
Thanks again for everything , Alex (& Heidi the Labradoodle), Steve & Cathy, Gary (& Sadie the Border Collie), Carl (& Alfie the Jack Russell Terrier) and Dave (& Elsa the Pointer)

Have just spent a night at Intake farm with my wife and brother. Once in a while you come across genuinely nice people who make you feel better just for seeing and speaking to them; Robert and Judith Ventress are two such people. We were made extremely welcome and comfortable and our hearty Yorkshire breakfast set us up for the day ahead. It was a treat for us to stay on a working farm and being situated in one of the loveliest spots in the country – namely Littlebeck – made it even better. The term ‘paradise’ comes to mind.
I’m sure anyone staying here, like us, will be treated to the very best in home from home comforts. Certainly we hope to return before too long.

My second stay at Intake Farm, first time with a friend on the coast to coast walk and the second time with the family. We were welcomed just as I remember from the first time, the minute you step through the door you are made to feel part of the family. The children loved their stay here on this working farm in the lovely village, so did we, Judith and her husband Robert make you feel so welcome, lovely people!
Thanks for putting up with us! The kids loved their ice creams!

Arrived at the farm for my last night stay before finishing the C2C. Was welcomed with a lovely piece of cake and coffee from Judith having just met Robert outside and discussed my fascination with the smell of sileage!
Sat down to dinner with another 8 guests, no idea how you cater for so many Judith but you did us proud and the food was fabulous, pavlova to die for! Everything at the farm felt so comfortable, it was like visiting an old friend.
A million thanks also for the Blistex which I’d struggle to get the following few days, you saved my life.
Will definitely return, hopefully next time with my other half as was planned this trip.
Many, many thanks
Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful, real life spot to spend the last night on the C2C. Warm and welcoming. Judith and Robert are truly nice people.
Some 3 years on from my last visit I was back in the area and decided to stay at Intake Farm again. This time , though , not in a tent but in the B&B! To my delight , nothing had changed! We were , once again , welcomed like old friends , sat at the kitchen table , offered tea and a ‘catch-up’ chat. It was a busy time (lambing) for the farm , but this did not affect proceedings whatsoever.
We were given a superb 3 course meal at the dining table and went off to bed having eaten a little more than we should! (After all at the table had sung Happy Birthday to Jo!).
The bedroom was most comfortable with stunnimng views across the fields of sheep.
Following breakfast , Judith took the time to show us around the lambing sheds which was a real treat. We then took a stroll to Falling Foss tea room – which is a must whilst there!
It’s a silly question to ask if we’d have liked to have stayed longer , but I am sure a return will be on the cards , once again , when we are passing through the area! A lovely , peaceful place to stay
Thanks Judith and Robert

We so enjoyed our one night stay on this working farm, great home cooked food, great hosts who could not have been more friendly and welcoming, spacious comfy bedroom, cosy log fire in the lounge. Thank you, so good to get away during this time, if only briefly. Carol and Nick, York
