- PMBA Grizedale Enduro – Hostel or Campsite suggestions
There are youth hostels in hawkshead and coniston, and a decent campsite at saterthwaite, which is probably closest.Posted 3 years ago
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!jambalayaSubscriber
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.Posted 3 years agosamcamsdadMember
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.)Posted 3 years ago
The two campsites in hawkshead are nice but its a hell of a climb to get to grizedale visitor centre.thestabiliserMember

Just to add that when we where there (walking trip) all the mtb-ers drove out to the riding.
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 jessiesPosted 3 years ago
