South Lakes & Cumbria – Carlisle Drive







South Lakes & Cumbria – Carlisle Drive

Our 3rd December drive will be the last official run of the year for South Lakes & Cumbria region. We’re nearly driving the full length of Cumbria, with the hope of meeting some of you further North in the region or just over the border. We’d love to see some new faces whether you’re an existing member, lapsed member, thinking of joining, not from Cumbria or just a Porsche Enthusiast! If you’ve got a garage queen that doesn’t like the cold or wet, feel free to come along in another vehicle of your choice 🚗 And if you just want to join us for part of the route, or just for the food then we’d still love to see you.
Porsche Centre South Lakes have kindly offered us to start our route from the centre. We’ll be meeting at 9.30, this will give us chance to have a coffee, browse the showroom and have a look at their lifestyle collection before leaving at 10.15.
We’ll be then heading North via the A6 stopping briefly at Abbots Lodge Jersey Ice Cream Parlour (11.15) where we hope anyone in the North, who doesn’t want to travel down to South Lakes Porsche can join us. After a brief stop then we’ll then continue North via Cooley Bridge and Hutton in the Forrest to Bridge End Inn, Dalston for lunch (12.45). Afterwards we’ll head back South finishing at Tebay Services (15.30) so everyone has easy access to the M6 to return home.

Heads North on the A6 via Kendal and Shap to Abbots Lodge Jersey Ice Cream Parlour, at Clifton, CA10 2HD, where there’ll be a quick 20-25 minute stop to grab a coffee, stretch legs.
