CMC Members

The Club Hut is located at Patterdale in the Lake District and is available for use by CMC members.

A member may take up to 3 guests, a small bedroom being reserved for members’ exclusive use should the hut be accommodating a booked party at the time.

Signing-in on arrival is essential.

Payment of Hut fees must be made by BACS payment.

Two week-ends per month are normally reserved exclusively for CMC members and their guests. A whole week in the summer holiday, one in the Easter holiday period and October half term are also set aside for members with children.

Dave Richards, the Hut Warden, should be contacted (01609 882585) in relation to any matters concerning the hut facilities, services, faults etc.

You will need your own bedding, tea towels and hand towels.

It is the responsibility of users to clean the hut both on arrival and on leaving the hut.

NB Dogs are not allowed in the hut, no matter how well behaved. Members and guests are also strongly discouraged from keeping their dogs in vehicles overnight both in terms of the dog’s welfare (ventilation/ temperature control ) and potential noise nuisance for fellow Hut users and our neighbours.

Please do not sleep in vehicles.
