Motor-cycle touring from Motherby House

Motor cycle touring - the Shap Pass
Motor cycle touring – the Shap Pass

We are ideal for motor-cycle touring in Cumbria and the Lake District, with off-street motorbike parking in the secluded court yard and access to iconic routes. We are close to Penrith and Keswick, just off the A66 and not far from the A6 and the A689.

Motor-cycle touring groups have ridden from our B&B up the iconic Hartside Pass to the cafe at the top as part of their tours, and also over the Shap pass to Kendal.

You can also ride south through the Lake District to Windermere and Bowness, or west to the coast – try Silloth on Solway as a target.

The Shap pass can also feature in longer tours, such as a Land’s End to John O’Groats motorbike tour, where the A6 provides a great alternative to the motorway.
