A purpose built cycling paradise

March 30th 2022

The Witherslack Cycle Barn is purpose built with cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts in mind. A big worry for a lot of cyclists is having their bike stolen while they sleep, Witherslack provides secure bike storage to put your mind at ease. They also have facilities and tools available to carry out repairs and maintenance and have E-bike hire available.

The purpose built nature means all the facilities are of a very high standard and every bedroom has its own bathroom so no sharing facilities here. The Centre still has a very welcoming communal feel, provided in part by the passionate staff and by the bright, open communal space with a full kitchen, log burning stove and large dining table. The location is fantastic with the south lakes, Morecambe bay and many cycling and walking paths nearby this cozy, warm modern centre is a fantastic place to visit.

Refresh the soul with a icy dip

February 15th 2021

While Witherslack is known for being cyclist friendly you don’t have to come on two wheels. There’s plenty of other activities to get stuck into when things are back to normal, a bit of wild swimming perhaps?

The Lakes have some of the best wild swimming spots in the UK. Clear tarns in peaceful locations, not much more a wild swimmer could ask for. Windermere the ‘lake of the lakes’ so to speak isn’t far away and offers brilliant scenery for the more advanced swimmer, of course you don’t have to swim the whole 11 miles. Morecambe bay is great for sea swimmers. What better way to help relieve the lockdown blues by booking a trip in a fabulous hostel? Affordable accommodation in amazing locations. Enquire to find out more about availability post lockdown.
