Its been a busy month for Cyclists staying at Happy Guests Lodge with our location on the A49 being an ideal stopover point for the Lands End to John O'Groats trip. Some do it on their own, others in groups, others with support riders in cars, but all arrive tied and in need of a good nights rest if they have done 50 or 125 miles that day.

I think the fact that we have big rooms enabling riders to sleep with their bikes and baths so they can soak their tired muscels and a great value evening meals menu all help - enabling them to rest eat and sleep ready to face a new day on the road!

Happy Guests Lodge is Cycle Friendly Accommodation!!

A Week of Tennis & Millionaires

Well we now know that Andy Murray wont be a Wimbledon Winner this year - but well done a good try - maybe next year! We had our own brush with Tennis stardom this last week when we went to Wimbledon to watch our son Ashley Hewitt compete in Junior Wimbledon - although having won the first set, he then picked up a restrictive injury and was not able to compete fully for the second part of the match, so went out in three sets - but did well getting to the second round and beating the world num 4 Junior player on the way!

We had two lots of millionares stay with us this week - which was exciting and interesting and a famous Chef - Mark Earnden who has just won North East Best Local Business of the year - so well done to Mark!
