7 of us stayed in the yurt for our coast to coast cycle ride. The organisation of transport, pick up/drop off by Anton was fantastic. He has a large minibus and bike trailer that is ideal. He also provided support along the way, picking my bike up within 20 minutes and taking it to Penrith for emergency repairs after a crash.
The accommodation was ideal for 7 sweaty cyclists with hot shower in the yurt. Ale in the pub was excellent, and the food was fantastic, from breakfast to Penny's pies in the evening.
The hospitality from Anton and Penny was amazing.
If you're planning to do the C2C then Get in touch with Anton (yellow jersey cycling), you wont regret it.
