CyclingIf you want to enjoy cycling in the Eden Valley we offer the perfect base from which to explore, and we can show you where to get maps of the superb Eden Circular cycle route, or the 5 do-in-a-day routes created specifically for Penrith. For long distance cyclists we are located right on the most popular cycle ride in the country - the Coast to Coast - and we host hundreds of C2C cyclists every year.
- The town of Penrith is the first official cycling hub in Cumbria, supported and promoted by the Cumbria Tourist Board as a leading centre for cyclists visiting the region. Just 2 minutes walk from the guesthouse you have an excellent local cycle shop, fully stocked for road, mountain and family cycling. At our guesthouse we are used to looking after all your needs, with covered cycle storage in our double gated and locked storage area. We have a covered space where you can do any mechanics, and although we ensure that our guesthouse is pristine clean, we don't necessarily expect you to be after a full day in the saddle!
Our aim is to make cyclists as comfortable and as welcome as possible. So whether you need to borrow some tools, an early breakfast before an epic ride, or some route advice for an enjoyable local spin, we'll do our best to help you.

"But can you sing standing on your head, with a top spinning on your left foot, and a sabre balanced on your right?"
'Of course not,' said the Mock Turtle: 'why, if a fish came to ME, and told me he was going a journey, I should say "With what porpoise?"'
'I want a clean cup,' interrupted the Hatter: 'let's all move one place on.'
With oars apeak, and paddles down, the sheets of their sails adrift, the three boats now stilly floated, awaiting Moby Dick's reappearance.
