Run by: Jim Fyfe

Perfect for groups and if you're doing the route from the Solway Firth rather than Ravenglass, this is bang on half-way and only 150 metres from the route. Spectacular views over upland pasture, bordered by pine forest and dry stone dykes. Jim took over in July and in addition to offering cycle spares and assistance, plus a stock of spare cycles, he's offering free archery for guests and is also and dredging the lake for trout fishing. There's crazy golf and boules as well. 'We aim to offer the highest levels of comfort with the best welcome along Hadrian's Wall,' says Jim.
