Anton and Penny


Welcome you to the warmest, friendliest pub in the Eden Valley

Our 200+ year old pub is one of distinction and character 

set in the heart of our Village in Great Strickland, Penrith, Cumbria.


Our pub provides B&B Accommodation and serves food and drinks. 

It consists of a bar, the oak byre dining room, beer terrace, games room and 7 accommodation options.

We provide free, super-fast WiFi covering in all areas of the pub, accommodation and car park area.

Cyclists, Walkers, couples, singles, families and pets... all are welcome if you are trained and well behaved! 

Penny and Anton look forward to welcoming you to The Strickland Arms Penrith- the perfect base for your cycling holiday in Cumbria. 


Book your B&B accommodation in one of our hand-built Yurts as a base for your Cumbrian cycling holiday. 


After a day of exploring the quiet country lanes of the Eden Valley -  arguably Cumbria's best kept secret - return to base for a hot shower in our ensuite rooms, followed a pint and a home-cooked meal in our welcoming village pub in Great Strickland.
