The Bunkroom

Check availability and book

Garrigill Village Hall is a great place for an overnight stopover for walkers and cyclists, especially if you're doing the Pennine Way or the C2C cycle route. With free wifi, the cosy but spacious upstairs bunkroom provides a welcoming retreat after a tiring but fulfilling day's activity on the Pennine fells. There are two comfy sofas on which to relax (one converts to a double bed) and eight single bunk beds and you can hire bedding if you're not bringing your own. For larger groups, 12 camp beds are also available in the main hall without the bedding hire option. 

Our charge includes shared use of the well-equipped kitchen, showers and toilets. There's a spin dryer, dehumidifier and hanging rails in the drying room for drying wet kit overnight. There are also camping facilities and a covered cycle shelter with securing rails. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but must be kept away from the camping field which is shared with a children's playground. For a safe and enjoyable stay, do please read our Overnight Fire Precautions and Village Hall User Guide.

Bunkroom charges per overnight stay (from 4.00pm to 10.00am) : £15 per person per night. Bedding hire (if required): £5 per person per stay. Camp beds in the main hall: £10 per person per night (no bedding hire available).
