Simple, budget accommodation on C2C routes

Formerly the oldest school in Westmorland (founded 400 years ago), Reagill Village Hall is now welcoming visitors to stay overnight. The tiny hamlet of Reagill in the Eden Valley has just 20 houses, no street lights, little traffic and wonderful dark skies for star gazing. Wildlife, including red squirrels and red deer, abounds. There are plenty of lovely walks from the doorstep, while Shap is 3 miles away, Appleby 10 miles and Penrith 12 miles.

Undergoing a gradual program of modernisation, Reagill Village Hall is community run and has a special place in the hearts of generations of villagers. Facilities include a kitchen with a new cooker, fridge and microwave. The brand new power shower ensures guests can enjoy a lovely hot and fierce shower after a busy day outside. There are a variety of heating options: overhead electric heaters on a meter, an open fire with coal and wood provided and two new multi stove heaters. Extra logs can be purchased at £5 per bag. You can be assured of a really warm and cosy stay. There’s one inside WC and another outside. Blow up beds for 4 adults and 2 children are provided, (1 double, 2 twin and 2 children's). Any additional guests may be able to bring sleeping mats and sleep on the floor, please discuss before booking. BYO bedding. Some bedding may be available if required, please enquire. The hall will only be let to one group at a time.

Situated close to Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk as well as the C2C cycle and mountain bike routes, Reagill Village Hall would make a perfect stop over. There is ample parking at the top of the lane on the grass verge and a locked shed for cycle storage. The Hall also makes an ideal stopover for people who are travelling up to Scotland from the south of England. It's so handy, just 10 minutes' drive from Junction 39 (Shap) on the M6.

If you don't want to cook after a busy day there are pubs serving evening meals in Crosby Ravensworth, Shap and Morland (all around 3 miles away). Shap has an amazing chip and pizza shop. And you'll also find lovely tea shops in Morland and Shap.
