Old route, new ways

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 added a fabulous loop WIGGO’S WAY, from Penruddock to Stanhope, in honour of the great man last year and it is proving popular.

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.


Mountain Rescue needs YOU

Mountain Rescue plays a big role in keeping the Lake District out of the news. Please take the time to look at this new film, which was released at noon on April 2 2015. It shows the valued work the service does, not just on the peaks, but also in the troughs, when people get snowed in or stranded on the highways and byways of the Lake District, during the long winter months. It was made by Jacquie and David Freeborn, who run Motherby House B&B at Motherby, just outside Greystoke. They are film-makers as well as bed-makers and fryers of bacon. It is an excellent film and shows the circumstances under which these brave volunteers work. Donations are what keeps them afloat. You can donate here.
