Great Strickland

Run by: Anton & Penny Flaherty

WILL ORGANISE YOUR TRIP FOR YOU. Now has two new bunkhouses  and each accommodating up to six people. Can take up to 24 in total. Famously playing host to Wiggo and Team Sky during the 2012 Tour of Britain last September, the Arms is going from strength to strength. The new fleece-lined log-built yurt sleeps 10 and there’s room for 6 more in the pub. The Arms is on the new C2C route via Ullswater, details of which can be found on the C2C website’s Home Page map browser. It's a warm and friendly pub with lots of character, in the heart of Eden Valley, five miles from Penrith. The pub now has Wiggo’s yellow jersey from last year’s Tour de France, plus other Team Sky mementos. Real fires, cask ales, a decent selection of wines to go with homemade food cooked by Penny.
