Strickland Arms, Great Strickland, Penrith, CA10 3DF

Run by: Anton & Penny Flaherty

Anton can organise your strip - taxis from the end to the start, plus a night at the pub as it's an ideal 1st night for those doing it in 3 days. Call to find out. Famously playing host to Wiggo and Team Sky during the 2012 Tour of Britain, the Arms is going from strength to strength. There are now three fleece-lined log-built yurts, one of which sleeps 10 and the other two sleep 4-6. And there’s room at the inn for 6 more. The Arms is on the new Wiggo's Way 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 has Sir Bradley Wiggins’s yellow jersey from the 2012 Tour de France, plus other mementos after Team Sky's memorable visit. Real fires, cask ales, a decent selection of wines to go with homemade food cooked by Penny. To see the Yellow Jersey Loop click HERE.
