Okay gang, after a very fun weekend in 2016 I'm booking the HB again for 2017.

I'm making it a get there Thursday and leave on Sunday morning event as those who fancy making a long weekend can and get a day riding in on Friday can and those that come later still get the full Saturday ride out and play :) :ride:

There's a pack of things to see and places to ride to up there so I will start making suggestions - PLEASE feel free to join in and add your own.

Address
Haggs Bank Bunkhouse
Nentsberry
Alston, Cumbria CA9 3LH
+44 (0)1434 382486
+44 (0)7919 092403

A few details on the Bunkhouse -

The Bunkhouse provides group accommodation for 24 in 3 bunkrooms of 5, 9 and 10. The largest bunkroom also has its own en-suite facilities. All bedding (sheet, pillowcases and duvets) is included. Towel hire can also be arranged at a small additional cost.

With a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, and plenty of space to eat together and chill out; this cosy group accommodation provides a perfect retreat after a day spent exploring this stunning landscape. With a dedicated outdoor equipment washing area and secure equipment storage onsite you will love discovering the breathtaking views, history and adventure up on the Roof of England.

Or you could hire the BBQ to eat under the stars or our firepit to chill out under the stars!
Cost per bunk is £18 per night.

Haggs Bank Campsite has 2 special areas each offering a unique camping experience. In our small woodland area, we can even offer trees for hammock tents! Whilst our main campsite sits in part of a 4.5-acre wildflower meadow with terraced pitches to enhance the views across the valley.

The showers and toilets are attached to the bunkhouse and included in the price.
Camping
£8pppn for age 16+

I will get a load of details and pictures loaded in a few hours :) I've a load of admin to sort out and wanted the dates out there for us.

If I never went out in the rain I would never get out in the bike at all. Last week we had 7 days of sunshine. That means this summer is over here in Scotlnd :muutt:
