Go Ape was just 35 minute drive from our self catering accommodation at Witherslack’s Cycle Barn. The Cycle Barn is dog friendly and on our Go Ape adventure days we parked at kennels close by and left our dogs there for safe keeping.Read More
How many bikes can you get in your bike store?
June 26th 2019
Our bike store was stuffed the other weekend with many tandems – you could hardly move!
We were delighted to host Vision of Adventure, an organisation that provides cycling holidays for the visually impaired. The VIs ride on the back with a sighted person up front. They had a fantastic few days exploring the wonderfully peaceful and picturesque lanes and bridleways around the south Lake District.
Cyclists and walkers alike have been flocking to Witherslack Cycle Barn
May 1st 2019
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?
