Ideally situated on the popular Sustrans Walney to Wear Coast to Coast 70, midway on the Bay Cycle Way 700 and on the Lakes & Dales Loop.Little wonder that is has become such a popular place to stay.

The existing 4 en suite bedrooms, sleeping 14, have wonderfully unique names. There’s ‘Team Sky’ (one bunk bed for 2 people), ‘Yellow Jersey’ (2 singles adapted for disabled), ‘The Peleton’ (2 bunks and 2 singles for 6 people) and ‘King of The Mountain’ (1 bunk and 2 small singles for 4 people). Perhaps it’s this quirkiness coupled with the bright, clean and modern building that keeps the cyclists coming back. Whatever it is, make sure you book in advance to secure one of the rooms. Which one will you choose?
