The Forestry Commission will close the C2C route from Cockermouth to Keswick at Wythop Woods for felling for up to 3 months from the 15th September. We will divert the C2C at Strawberry How Road end (west of Cockermouth) back onto the B5292 to the cross roads near Hundith Hill then right to use the lane to the west of the River Cocker to Low Lorton Bridge where they join the other spur of the C2C on to Whinlatter.

Happy birthday C2C – 20 years old this summer
If you want a leisurely few days and the BEST PLACES to EAT, SLEEP & DRINK, then you’ve come to the right place. The C2C might be tough, but you can do it with planning, even if you’re not quite up there with Bradley Wiggins. Speaking of whom, please note that we have added a fabulous new loop WIGGO’S WAY from Penruddock to Stanhope, in honour of the great man.
BUT If you want to do some serious road burning, read on. Check out the experiences of others, send in your own. Links to blogs are most welcome, as are your pictures. There’s technical help as well as restaurant tips.
And don’t forget to mention C2C Guide if you stay at the many places on our properly researched listings. We’ve been in business since the route opened in 1994, so we know what we’re talking about.
In addition to Wiggo’s Way we have also added a new section called the Weardale Alternative which will ease the pressure on the Rookhope to Allenheads section and now links Nenthead with Stanhope via St John’s Chapel on the A689. More information to follow.
