The future is now the present and renewable energy is here!
If you have an electric car, coming to Sedbergh is now a possibility.
We have just had a Pod Point installed, which means that cars such as the Nissan Leafe, with a Type 1 charger, can recharge for free when they stay at Summerhill.

If you want to learn some mountain skills and have a good appetite for our lovely Summerhill breakfasts, how about coming on an Introducing Fell Running programme.
You will be combining a stay at Summerhill, with days on the hill, a body-balancing session and coaching inputs that you can use for great effect in other areas of your life as well as for enhancing your physical performance.
See the Courses page for more information

If you're coming to the Rothay Ball, it pays to book your accomodation early rather than leave it till the last minute and find there's no choice.
I suggest you make a weekend of it, arriving for dinner on the Friday evening, have a relaxing Saturday and re-charge your batteries with a walk,
A long Sunday morning breakfast provides a great opportunity to get to know or re-connect with other parents.

We will be skiing, somewhere in the Alps over the Christmas holidays, so if you'd like to do some self catering, with a maximum of 6 people, give me a call.

Meeting a need is what service is all about. So, I've decided to do some more of that and change my policy of taking bookings for a minimum of two nights. So anyone who wants to come for a one night stay, give me a call. And if you can extend your stay for two nights, the rate is of course less per night. Great value when you consider so much of the food is organic, home produced and delicious.

All the rooms have now been taken for the weekend of the OMM and we have a couple of friends coming who will be sleeping on the floor. Ellie and Adrian are aditcted to mountain marathons, do about 5 each year and are always in the prizes in their mixed veteran class.
Friends from Plymouth are coming to stay on Saturday as well, so its going to be quite a weekend!

The Original Mountain Marathon comes to the Howgills this year.
Back in the days of the KIMM, I had some good runs with my partner Carol McNeill, winning our class three years in a row. After that, I decided I'd stop and quit on a high note.
Now I'm in the position to offer very comfortable beds, good food and hot baths to people who want some luxury either side of their mountain marathon experience and dont need to dash home on Sunday evening.

I've created a very unique programme for women who want to learn how to increase their enjoyment of being in the fells and be safe at the same time. The programme dates are 15th - 18th July and 22nd - 25th October.
Its going to be incorporating a variety of different ways of increasing skills and looking at individual motivation - very leading edge stuff and you can read about it on the Courses page of this website.
I'm offering a free place to one woman, through the Sportsister website, www.sportsister.com - have a look on the Features page.
