    There are youth hostels in hawkshead and coniston, and a decent campsite at saterthwaite, which is probably closest.
    Just so you know, the Windermere ferry is going to be off, so if your planning on riding you’ll have to go the long way round.
    It’s also the brathay marathon on the same day, so accomodation could be getting full, and some roads will be closed around lake.
    It’s not the best day to be having an event in grizedale to be honest!

    We’ve stayed at Queens Head Hotel in Hawkshead, liked it and gave it a good review. Some rooms where newly refurbed and very nice, the ones which where not where a bit tired but that was 2 years ago now. The pub is quite lively and food pretty good so it’s worth a visit if you stay there or not.

    Hawkshead has a campsite just on the outskirts of the town, so an easy stroll to the pub etc. Large-ish pay and display car park too. There where quite a few mtb-ers there.

    That sounds a bit crap!

    EDIT Just found out they are running a pedestrian and cycle service

    It looks like a passenger ferry is running from Bowness bay, witch will take up to two bikes, if there’s room. Google Windermere ferry closure, and you’ll find the details. ( sorry, not sure how to post a link from my phone.)
    The two campsites in hawkshead are nice but its a hell of a climb to get to grizedale visitor centre.

    Just to add that when we where there (walking trip) all the mtb-ers drove out to the riding.

    Big vote for Hawkshead YHA

    Kings Arms pub in Hawkshead for post ride recovery beer!

    There’s a bridleway from hawkshead up into Grizedale that’s less steep than the road. And it’s not that bad anyway you big jessies
