Introducing the new GBC Village

We no longer offer a residential full board package but instead have teamed up with the lovely, and very local, B & B/Self Catering Highwayman's Guesthouse .

 

They have bigger and better facitilies including a swimming pool in the summer months but can still offer reasonably priced dorm accommodation as well as private rooms.

 

They include a continental breakfast.  Lunches are still available to purchase from ourselves after your run and we are trialling the sale of take away evening meals for when you dont want to do the cooking.

 

You can book accommodation now by visiting here or  call Juliet or Claire on 01284 801283 !

 

Please note that the Highwayman's is not exclusive to GBC runners and may get booked up especially during the summer months.  We would therefore recommend booking early to avoid disappointment!
