Cycling & Mountain Biking!

Greystoke and Stafford House are ideally located for two main national cycle routes;  the Coast 2 Coast and the lengthy but fantastic John O Groats to Land's End or (JOGLE) as it is also known.


There are lots of routes in and around Greystoke, from gentle climbes to something a little more strenuous.  We have Greystoke Forrest just a short ride away, where there are numerous trails to test your skills.


However about half an hours drive from here just on past Keswick is Whinlatter Forrest.  Here whether you have brought your own bike or you need to hire one, you skills and stamina will be tested to the full.


There are people on hand at "Whinlatter Mountain Bike Hire and Cyclewise" to help you out if there is anything you have forgotten, or something that has broken on a run.  It's a great day out and there's also something for everyone. 

Don't forget the Whinlatter Mountain Bike Challenge taking place on Sunday 23d March 2014!

With the "Utmost Safety" of all our

Guests in mind,

During the 1st Lockdown in March 2020, we invested in a

"Fogging Machine"

By useing a special solution certified

to kill ALL Viral 

& Bacterial Infections,

(should there be any present),

We are confident that we can operate as safe as we possibly can be.  


We also meticulously clean and sanitise all areas, before finishing with a "Steam Cleaner"

making sure that everything is safe.


There are Hand Sanitisers in all 3 Bedrooms, as well the Breakfast Room in the Main House.

The Lodges also have Hand Sanitisers in the Kitchen.
