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!!

Group of 12 Cyclists, First nights stay after a long wet ride from Whitehaven.
All bikes locked in a bike room.
We stayed in one of the twin rooms. Clean and comfortable.
Wet clothes were all put in the tumble dryer which was fantastic..
Food and drinks in the pub were good.
Breakfast was super..Cereals and full English !
Would highly recommend...!!

Can't fault this place or the fantastic owners. The yurt itself was clean and more than fit for purpose. Can be a bit noisy in there, sounding more like a protein and carb fuelled farmyard at times but that's more an issue with the residents not the yurt!! The food is superb and in terms of hospitality you won't find better on the c2c route! Cheers

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.

This is a small pub but full of charm, the owners try hard to help and have a great choice on the menu.
Nice wood burner and great beers, i think if you went here you will go again.
They have various things on from steak nights to mexican and great pies. They do accomodation but we didnt stay over.
