Arragons Cycle Hire

Cycle Hire Banner

We are delighted to announce that we are now offering Cycle Hire from the beautiful surroundings of Lowther Castle. The venture coincides with the launch on the Lowther Estate of a network of dedicated cycling and walking trails. This will enable visitors, particularly families, to enjoy the beauty and unspoilt terrain of the Lowther Estate in Cumbria.

Hand in hand with this network comes the launch of Arragons Cycle Hire at Lowther Castle – an enterprise that is being managed and run in tandem with our family run store in Penrith. Under this new venture, visitors to the castle will be able to hire a range of bikes, from trail bikes (Scott Aspect) or, for junior riders, superlight mountain bikes (Saracen Mantra) to a selection of pedal assist electric bikes (Saracen Juiced, Ridgeback X3) which are ideal for anyone who cannot face the more uphill stretches of the estate.

Please note that after hiring bikes and exploring the trails, you can enjoy 10% off admission to the Castle & Gardens (including the adventure playground) on production of your bike-hire receipt.

LOWTHER ESTATE TRAILS

The trails that run through the Lowther Estate embrace all that is beautiful in the lovely Lowther valley. Cycle-paths snake through the ancient woodland and pastures of Lowther Park, following the stunning contours of the landscape.  All trails have been created for full family enjoyment and are colour-graded in accordance with national cycling standards. There are signposts at every junction, with destinations and length in miles clearly shown.  In addition to this, there are some signposted circular routes that go beyond the estate boundaries. Hirers can also create their own rides beyond Lowther and into the Eden Valley or Lake District.

LOWTHER CASTLE

Of the many treasures waiting to be discovered in the English Lake District, Lowther Castle is a gem.  Built at the turn of the 19th century, on the site of two previous houses, the castle was a grand affair boasting a room for every day of the year.  Its gardens were the envy of the north.  But in 1957 the castle was demolished.  Just the façade and outer walls remained standing and for over half a century, the place was empty – home only to chickens, pigs and the odd bat.  The gardens were lost to wilderness.

Seventy years on from its demolition, Lowther Castle is now one of the most intriguing visitor attractions in the country.  Dramatic ruins, gardens within gardens, an adventure playground to rival the best in the land.  For visitors young and old (and four-legged), Lowther Castle offers plenty to enjoy. And when all of you are ready for a rest, you can retreat to the café and have some delicious food, before taking to the gift shop and indulging in one last treat.

Lowther Castle & Gardens are open every day from 10am to 4pm in winter and 10am to 5pm in summer.  For castle and garden entry fees, click here.  Last entry to the gardens 1 hour before closing.  Shop, café, courtyard and parking free.

Location & Opening Times

Now we’ve hit Autumn, the Hire Centre is not staffed and won’t be open daily. But don’t worry, you can still enjoy the bikes. Reserve you bikes as normal, either via our website or through the shop on 01768 890344 and we will have everything you need at the time you select.

We will open for the Half term Holidays at the end of October, and the Centre will be fully open with more bikes in March 2019.

The hire centre is open to bookings Thursday – Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Last hire is 3pm.

The Hire Centre is based along side the courtyard next to the Castle.
