Electric Bicycle Network

We are part of the Electric Bicycle Network helping you get out of your car and around the Lakes. A map of hire points is available here and once you have your electric bike you are welcome to visit Blackwell and re-charge your batteries whilst visiting the house or having a coffee in our tearoom. The Electric Bicycle Network have planned some routes to help you on your way and you can download maps that include Blackwell enroute:

Staveley via Winster (17.9 miles, 4 hours including stops)
Bowness via Winster (15.4 miles, 4 hours including stops)
Lake Windermere via Winster (17 miles, 3.5 hours including stops)

We’ve also planned some routes starting from Staveley, the home of Wheelbase, the UK’s largest bike shop, with Blackwell as a half-way rest.
