Motorcycle holidays

We have a number of guests who return to us year on year on their bikes.  They enjoy the ups and downs of the roads around the dales and the friendly people and pubs they find along the way as well as the stunning scenery the largest county in the UK has to offer. 

Secure parking for your bike can be provided and we are very happy to recommend a good pub lunch up the dale or indeed pack you a picnic!
