We have been working on some self guided touring routes for motorbike or car. These will be particularly useful if you are not in the area for many days and want to see as much as you can while you are here in Cumbria. We have three route to choose from:
1) Lake District Mountain Passes - a drive or ride through all the tarmaced mountain passes. Probably a full day including stops for coffee, lunch, photos, etc., approx. 120 miles.
2) North Pennines Circular - taking in Britains highest pub and highest waterfall, approx. 110 miles.
3) South Lakes - via Hardknott Pass and the Bowness to Far Sawrey vehicle ferry, with an optional visit to the often forgotten Hawswater, approx. 125 miles
These routes all involve travel on some very narrow roads, so although the mileage may seem modest, each will take a good few hours to complete, depending on number of stops, etc.
If this is of interest, just ask for details when you check in for your stay at The Red Townhouse.
Don't forget our B&B training courses. Outline details can be found on the 'B&B Courses' page on our website, but as all our courses are bespoke and designed to meet your individual requirements, please call for more details and to discuss your particular requirements.
One of our groups from 2017, having purchased and developed a B&B on the south coast and opening last summer, also appeared and on Channel 4's Four in a Bed in February 2018 - and won !
