Garrigill Village Hall Bunkroom is a great place for an overnight stopover for walkers and cyclists, ideally situated for the Pennine Way and C2C cycle route. With free wifi plus USB charging ports, our cosy 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 or use your sleeping bag. For larger groups, we can provide up to twelve camp beds in the main hall but without the bedding hire option.
Your booking 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. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but must be kept off the camping field which adjoins a children's playground. For a safe and enjoyable stay, do please read our Bunkroom User Guide - and in summer months don't forget your midge repellent!
Bunkroom charges per overnight stay (from 4.00pm to 10am) is £18 per person per night. Optional bedding hire is £5 per person per stay for freshly laundered pillow, pillowcase, fitted sheet, 10.5 single quilt with cover, your bed being made up for arrival.
