The Strickland Arms was the perfect accommodation for our first night on the C2C. The hotel wasn't far at all off our C2C route and was very easy to find. Myself and 7 friends (four ladies and four men) stayed in the Yurt which was homely and more than ideal for our large group. Both the sleeping area and bathroom where very clean, bunkbeds where extremely comfy and the yurt itself had all the necessary ammenities. The Bathroom was stocked with fresh clean towels and toiletries (ideal for anybody travelling light!) and there was even a kettle with enough supplies to make everybody a brew and a biscuit after a long days cycling! The hotel itself was quaint and charming and the staff where brilliant and extremely accomodating. The weather had been terrible for us during the days cycling so all of our kit was wet and muddy. The staff where kind enough to give everything a quick rinse and pop it in the dryer for us ready for the next morning - nobody likes putting back on wet smelly kit so this was much appreciated by the group! Both our evening meal and breakfast in the hotel where lovely. There was a good selection of meals on the menu, most of which included locally sourced ingredients! Our bikes where locked overnight in a secure, wooden outhouse located in the car park of the pub. There was also facilities to wash the bikes which was a big help after all the mud they had accrued over the days cycling. A track pump was available to reinflate our tyres and we where also supplied with oil for our chains. Overall we had a brilliant stay at the Strickland Arms - we couldn't fault the accommodation or staff and would definitely recommend it for anybody wanting to stay in Penrith on the c2c route - amazing value for money!!
