Rookhope is on the Coast to Coast (C2C) cycle route and the Inn provides a warm welcome for cyclists, whether for B&B accommodation, a meal or just to refill a water bottle.
The Inn now offers free Wi-fi access and the games bar now has a big screen tv with Sky Sports showing all major football and other sporting events.
