Can certainly recommend Sue and her staff at the Cross Keys Hotel. We had a great stay there in June last year.
The food was absolutely first class (can highly recommend Sues homemade Steak pie)! The breakfast was also exceptionally good. Looking forward to going back this year
Just a quick message to say thank you for your advert.
We have received great feedback from your listing of The Empire Diner and speaking to the Bikers that have come in lately, it is because they have looked on your website and seen that we are Biker friendly and wanted to check us out, which is brilliant.
Thought you may appreciate the feedback too, although I'm sure you already know how great you are anyway!
THE BIKER GUIDE - Angela, what a lovely message and so glad our visitors have found and visited your great place!
Blenkinsopp Castle Inn and Tea Room - We called into the tea rooms some weeks ago very hungry and we were very happy to find a very warm welcome and outstanding food and a good price.
We were so happy that we booked a over night stay some weeks later.
We were held up with M6 traffic and arrived late I called to advise them and the even kept some meals to one side for us.
The room and bed were outstanding.
These people truly are value for money true Northumberland hospitality at its best!
re Les Draps s'Or in Ardres nr Calais:
This place was an absolute find! Me and my mate were on our motorbikes and as soon as we arrived, a large warm, dry and secure double garage was opened for us to stow our bikes.
Inside the rooms are large, beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean.
Our host Hilary was so welcoming and lovely; e.g. she booked us a great restaurant a few minutes walk away (across the pretty square). The beds were comfy and breakfast was really tasty (all home jams & fresh local bread products, with good coffee & tea) and the prices were very reasonable - especially for the quality.
The B&B room are well segregated upstairs so there's no danger of feeling like an intruder. I really really recommend.
Popped up to Squires on Sunday...
Sunshine, great roads and a cracking pastie :)
Cracking site for bringing the biking community together all over the country!
Found Bay Cottage on your website...
Beautiful accommodation with great attention to detail and use of local produce.
Wonderful, freshly prepared food (we also had evening meal.) Safe garaging for motorcycle. Hosts were welcoming, helped with satnav charging problem and provided useful local directions. Very enjoyable and comfortable stay ... top marks :)
Fantastic site and a wealth of information for planning my sight seeing Tour in Sept this year.
Just stayed a "The Firs" in Runswick Bay near Whitby in Yorkshire.
Couldn't fault the place large secure garage available by pre booking takes upto 10 bikes. Although hotel dry there several pubs/restaurants within walking distance and the breakfast is to die for. Great biking roads and close to Whitby if its too quiet.
Ive stayed at The Hopetoun Arms at Leadhills in Southlanarkshire Scotland twice with another 10 bikers.
Great hosts who work hard. Good home cooked food and lovverrly beeeers and all at a decent price.
I can thoroughly recommend Arden Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Williton, Somerset. Jane & Paul are fantastic hosts and will always go the extra mile for their guests. (pardon the pun!)
They are biker friendly too.
Visited the Doof Cafe, in Ruthin after seeing them in the booklet! Excellent food, very good choice and good value for money.
Just wanted to tell, say what a brilliant site you've got going here. As a novice tourer and in to the process of planning a european tour for next year, you have some great info.
Well Done for all of your hard work but most of all..... THANK YOU!.... :-)
The Maltese Falcon
If Carlsberg were to make an informative bikers site this would definitely be it!
Gasthof Am Turm - Great base for touring this region of Germany, suggested route maps and brilliant hospitality.
I just wanted to let you know how great I think THE BIKER GUIDE is!
I have been using it for over 5 years now, to buy stuff and to find places to stay. I have stayed in a lot of places with my fella and also with some friends in Scotland, Wales, the lakes and this year in France and Germany - they have all been very welcoming to me and my bike, have been top quality places and I have even been to some in the car during the winter months, because I know you only include the best places on here. ;)
I have to confess that I have in the past looked and other websites that 'supposedly' include biker friendly places and they are either very hard to use, have dead links, blank pages and even more annoyingly include places that were not Biker friendly and some were even being shut when we passed by.
I started to use THE BIKER GUIDE as they put a card on bike when I was at a show and I thought I would have a look. I don't even bother with the other websites now, as the places on here are so easy to find, with information on where to visit, eat and drink means the site must be run by Bikers (lol) - I think most of the other sites are just a money making venture as they don't include anything to want to make me stay anywhere!
Had a brilliant weekend at Stormin' the Castle. All thanks to the tickets I won from THE BIKER GUIDE.
Will upload some pics as soon as I can work out how using this phone!
Cannot thank THE BIKER GUIDE enough for this weekend!
We both had a good time with our competition winning tickets for the West Wales Motorcycle Show - thanks again!
Had a fantastic time at the Tossin the Slipper. Got a bit wet on the way home and had about 1/2 pint of water in each boot and glove by the time I got home, but it was worth it!
Thanks for the tickets. xxx
“Highly Recommend The Guest House.”
My husband and I won a 2 night stay in The Guest House from THE BIKER GUIDE, so my review is totally honest.
Pre-arriving, I spoke to Jenny on the phone, and straight away SHe was very helpful.
We arrived, and met by a member of staff, who immediately called for Jenny who gave us a very warm welcome.
She showed us around her delightful house and took us to our room. It was beautiful. We stayed in the Blorange Room, which has amazing views over the Blorange Mountain and the lovely pets corner at the back of the house.
Jenny is a wealth of information on the local and surrounding areas, and very helpful.
She recommended a few eateries close by, and we visited 2 of them. The Hen and Chickens for lunch, and The Gurkhar Restaurant for Dinner.
Both were outstanding!
Actually when we were having lunch, Jenny and her husband Kevin arrived and invited us to join them for a drink, which we gladly did, and met the new Mayor of Abergavenny whilst there!
I had read reviews, and the breakfasts had a lot to live up to... we were not let down one iota!
Jenny and Kevin provide a breakfast which is more like a feast fit for a king, and everything is fresh and very tasty. The best breakfast I have had while staying in any accommodation.
We stayed for 2 nights, and both nights were very comfortable, the bed was perfect.
Everything possible was supplied in our room. The usual tea tray was better than average. Bath robes, shampoo, shower gel, cooling spray, a new razor all there to use.
We enjoyed a couple of hours in the back garden in the sun which was very nice with the animals. All the animals are very friendly without being too much, but I wouldn't have minded that at all. It was lovely to sit watching them all.
There is a very secure parking area out the back for motorbikes, which is ideal.
Jenny, Kevin and the staff at The Guest House treat every guest extremely well and make them feel at home. Every need is catered for.
They also have an excellent room downstairs which is perfect for disabled people, wheelchair users etc. Even the bathroom is wheelchair friendly.
I can't say enough about this place. It is most excellent, and very good value.
Please book if you are thinking of doing so, you won't be disappointed.
Thank you Jenny, Kevin, the staff and the animals for a stupendous break! We will return.
Just spent a fantastic few days staying with Andy & Jill at La Tringale in Normandy.
Really friendly people made us feel really welcome. Beautiful location, home cooked food, plenty of beer & wine. What more could you ask for. Excellent base for touring the area.
Thanks to Roger and Linda at Countryside Holidays in Brittany, France, for being such great hosts.
We have had a great week in the stone gite. This part of Brittany is truly stunning and not to be missed! We highly recommend staying here and will definitely be returning soon.
THE BIKER GUIDE - Many thanks for letting us know you had a great time staying @ Countryside Holidays in France.
I have been using THE BIKER GUIDE for years now to find places to stay - they have all been very welcoming and perfect for travelling on a Motorbike - although I have even been to some in the car!
I used to use other websites, most being hard to use and far too many having blank pages and places that were not Biker friendly and some very annoyingly being shut.
The team at THE BIKER GUIDE must work very hard as the places they include onto the website are firstly easy to find (Cumbria in one click thank you ;) ) they include easy to read information and they are always Biker Friendly.
I only use this website when looking for biker related information as it really is the 'Ultimate guide'!
Big thanks to THE BIKER GUIDE!
I won tickets for Into The Valley and had a brilliant weekend!
Keep up the good work Sharon Rollisson-Slaughter and everyone involved in the magazine and website.
I would like to thank you for selecting me to be the competition winner for the Manchester Motorcycle Show tickets.
I will be attending the show on Saturday 22nd along with my buddy John whose Birthday it happens to be on the same day, so its a birthday treat for him!
Look forward to seeing you all at the show.
Hope you have a good weekend
Just a quick thank you for the tickets for this weekends Manchester Bike Show. Visited on Saturday and loved it!
THE BIKER GUIDE - Thanks for passing by the stand ;)
After trying a few other websites that 'supposedly' advertise biker friendly places and getting virtually no response, I have recently signed up with THE BIKER GUIDE.
I cannot believe it took me so long, as within 3 weeks the 12 months advert I placed has already been paid for (and more) with a booking for next June. I am going to be honest - the other websites I have tried were cheaper, but you know a waste of money, £25 quid here, £35 there - it all adds up!
As an advertiser the service I got after filling in the form was brilliant. They took what I had wrote, added to it, tweaked it and added links - its a shame other websites do not care as much for their customers as most these days just take your hard earned cash, throw the listing onto the website (mistakes an all) and then phone your neighbours. Well done to THE BIKER GUIDE and the team there. ;)
Merry Christmas to you all...
Fantastic job - keep up the good work!
Love the whats on page! Nice one.
What a great resource; there is so much to explore on here, then out onto the road for fun! :-)
I visit the website almost daily, as do most of my biker buddies. So the great work you do is most definitely going from strength to strength. Keep up the good work!

I found a card at a café and also the booklet, along with a few of my friends saying how good the site was and how most Bikers use it now to find places to stay, so I thought I would give it a try.
I can see why it is popular as it is just so easy to use with good clear information.

Have just stayed at the Hampton Hotel, Llandrindod Wells for 3 nights with friends.
Very friendly, clean, EXCELLENT BREAKFASTS and good locked garage for many bikes.Excellent value for money.
Just have seen the biker rally on it way towards Stourport.
l wish the bikers could have seen it from our perspective as that was a delight and a pleasure to witness!
A biker friend in England put me onto your website. So very timely since I am currently planning a ride from England through to France, Belgium, Germany, Poland and loop back to England via the Czech Republic, Austria, top of Italy, Switzerland, France.
Hope to Attend the Isle Of Mann TT either at the beginning or the end of the Europe trip. Will be shipping my bike from Australia to do the trip on.
Hi there, I'm just back from a trip to Brittany where I stayed for a week with Roger and Linda Nicholls at Countryside Holidays In France.
I'd like to say what a wonderful place, time and couple. We had a hoot, nothing is too much trouble and if they are typical of the people and companies who use this site then I will be using it again and will spread the word.
Well done you, well done Roger and Linda.
Thank you.George Cruden, Houston.
Thanks for including me on the website for accommodation.
We have seen a lot of bikers from all over this year, including Germany and Austria.
Thanks for the tickets for Beaulieu’s Motorcycle Ride-In Day.
You lot do a fantastic job! Keep it up and thanks again for the tickets.
Thanks to your excellent website Louise and I have just returned from a fifteen night tour of Spain and France.
We found the superb Burlaouen in Brittany on your site and would encourage any biker wanting a great, friendly holiday stay in France and brilliant, quiet roads to ride to give Roger and Linda a call. Their site is peaceful and the accommodation really nice, Roger has at least 17 old bikes to admire and he will let you ride a few around the paddock. We were very sad to leave.
Brilliant Site, Your business directory is awesome, we have just started advertising www.lockfixdirect.co.uk we were that impressed.
Think you should rename your directory to "The Orange Pages". :)
THE BIKER GUIDE: What a great idea!
Thanks to this great website, myself and a friend found the perfect accommodation for our night away.
We can fully recommend the Ryecroft Guest House in Great Yarmouth, the owners Geoff & Caroline are fantastic, made us feel very welcome and they are ex bikers too. The rooms are clean, well decorated & their attention to detail is spot on. They also allow pets http://www.ryecroftguesthouse.co.uk/
Had a great day out at the Prescott Bike Festival, thanks to winning tickets
in your competition - we probably wouldn't have bothered otherwise, and what a treat we would have missed! Brilliant atmosphere (you could almost feel the enthusiasm), loads of bikes I'd never seen before, and plenty of trade stands to seek out bargains.
So, thanks for providing the chance to win the tickets, and the festival is
already in our diary for next year.
THE BIKER GUIDE: Morton, so glad you had a great time and thanks for entering the competition and for letting us know!
Just to let you know of our intention for all Deaf Bikers and non-Deafs. Deaf Bikers UK is open to all deaf bikers. Hearing bikers are welcome to join if they are interested in sharing our deaf culture. We mostly communicate in British Sign Language but, of course, deaf non-BSL users are welcome too.
We are holding our Rally in Wales in June 21-23 - look in http://www.deafbikers.org.uk
They already are here:
Great publication. Visit the filling station at Keswick quite a bit.
They have just been highly commended in two categories in the Cumbria life food awards. Awesome place!
THE BIKER GUIDE - Great website keep up the good work!
I'm fairly new to biking (been commuting for years) and only just joined a MCC. I have found this website to be an invaluable resource.
Keep up the good work and happy 4th birthday.
This is a real top job!
We are just starting out and we will 100% be advertising in THE BIKER GUIDE. We are a bikers cafe at Mallory Park race track, open all year round and welcome bikers for rideouts and weekend(free) campers. Entertainment can be aranged if required.
Brill site bikers guide
What a cracking web site you have. Full of use full information. Well done.
I'm looking to film some winters bikers for a documentary.
I'm based in Driffield visiting biker cafes such as Seaways and Scarborough.
Would anyone have some spare time for a chat about their bike and winter riding?
THE BIKER GUIDE replies:
To get you the best response for this, ideally ask for participants via our facebook group here:
Hello there, I was just wondering if there was any bike clubs in Derby, East Midlands, where meets take place or ride outs. I drive a 125cc so ideally would be looking for people with same engine size. Any help would be gratefully recieved.
Many thanks, Terry.
THE BIKER GUIDE: Terry, we have extensive listing for Biker Friendly Meeting Places on the website, found on the directory in the left of the site, along with Club links.
However we also have large interactive facebook groups where you can ask such questions (see facebook THE BIKER GUIDE - group)
Just to say thank you! Earlier this year I wrote on here saying I just moved to an area and used this site to go on runs out and make new mates well thanx to your site I've meet my new biker wife to be... All down to a meet I had seen on this site.
We will be riding off into the sun set for years to come together
Shane & Jodie (Mrs Shane to be)
THE BIKER GUIDE: Well Shane what can we say... Firstly congratulations and what a great story. We are proud to say we helped bring yourself and Jodie together.
May you ride together for many years to come!

Another Great guide from you guys and a huge thanks for my ladies vest I just won... dont think you want a pic at my age modelling it though! lol
"Wazoo"The Muffin Research Utility Kitchen
Just found your site, and I have to say it has kept me busy for ages. Very well presented and lots of useful snipets to read. Well done.
Great site. Good info... please keep it up!
This a great website with lots of good ideas. Thank you. My husband and I love going out on our bikes early in the morning and stopping for breakfast, it would be great if your website specified good breakfast places. Can you help.
THE BIKER GUIDE: We have extensive listings for Biker Friendly meeting places, which includes cafes.
See the Meeting Places section on the left.
diane @ butty van A6 blackrod
what a great website so informative love it guys :-)
I have over the past few years seen information on websites and papers on Biker Friendly cafes and meets and gone to check them out and then found that the places were either shut, not running a bikers night any more or just not Biker friendly. So when I found all the places listed here on the biker guide I was unsure wheather to go and check these places out.
Well I am glad I did, as I have now visited many cafes, a lot new to the scene, all of which I have found on here AND they were all open!
I would just like to say that the information you have on here is fantastic and refreshing correct (why is there so much incorrect information on other sites?) I do not even look anywhere else now for information as you guys do it so well.
Thanks and keep up the good work.
THE BIKER GUIDE: We spend a lot of time checking and updating all the information on the website, especially the meeting places and cafes. Glad to hear you have found some new places.
What a fantastic website! I'm new to biking and just stumbled across this - I can see it being one of my daily favourites!
Can't wait to be joining you all on rallies, runs out, etc. Done my CBT now to get cracking on the direct access... Jane x
THE BIKER GUIDE: Welcome to the wonderful world of Bikers Jane and good luck with the direct access.
I organised a camping weekend for our club, Bristol & Avon Roadrunners MCC at Penmarlam Caravan & Camping Park which is listed in your guide.
We had a fab weekend, made to feel very welcome. Site shop and shower block excellent, the pitch sizes were very generous. All in all we would highly recommend this camp site to fellow bikers and nonbikers alike.
Many, many thanks for the Meta Alarm that I won in a competition here on THE BIKER GUIDE... I have never won a competition before!
And many thanks to BLD in Brighouse for fitting the alarm and for their hospitality, great service guys!
A brilliant site and a great help in all areas! A lot of work must have been put in to this and im sure its appreciated by all.
THE BIKER GUIDE: Many thanks for your comments, letting us know and re a lot of work - Hell yes!
Fantastic mag and very informative . Think the web site is also very good.
Our trip to Scotland is booked we are using a couple of the b&bs in your mag.
Thanks to all of you who make this happen!
THE BIKER GUIDE:
Marc, many thanks for these lovely comments and we are glad you have found the booklet and web-site usefull.
Have a great trip!
Well what can I say...
I am well impressed! I am new to biking (can't wait to take my test), so this site is brill, I can see where places are I can ride to on my L plate. Thanks to all who make this possible.
My hubby who has been biking for years didn't know about this website... but he does now!
Hi. I just stumbled onto your site and its made my job a lot easier.
What a fantastic site it is... keep up the good work.
Tom, Social Sec - Gravesend MCC
THE BIKER GUIDE replies:
Tom, we are glad you found us and that we have made life easier for you - It was our inrension to do that with an easy to use web-site, packed full of information the modern day Biker is looking for, where most things can be found in 2 -3 clicks, rather than being like trying to find the Holy Grail - as some web-site are!
Thanks for the guidance. I like the web-site so much and hope to meet bikers here.
THE BIKER GUIDE replies:
Many thanks for your comments.
We recently asked our visitors what they use to communicate with other Bikers on the web, i.e; forums, twitter or facebook. We found that over 80% are now on facebook so we have chosen to let people to converse with each other on our large facebook group.
We have just looked at our web-site statistics and found that we have over 1,750 daily visitors, from over 175 countries and in the last month alone, they have looked at over 120,000 pages. Wow!
Many thanks to all our visitors for using us to source your information, for being loyal and for being a Biker...
A very useful and quite comprehensive guide,thanks (:^D)
THE BIKER GUIDE: Many thanks for taking the time to let us know!
Thank you for your email today saying I've won tickets to Stormin The Castle 2012! What a fab supprise. Thank you very much.
We just couldn't leave your website before saying that we really enjoyed the quality information you offer to your visitors... Will be back often to check up on new stuff you include!
I would like to thank you and the team and comment that the biker guide has been a success for us and introduced many more bikers to our business.
Many thanks from an old biker
Hi what a great site. Ive just moved to a new area and didn't know any biker meets around here but thanx to this site Ive been on a load of runs and made new biker mates!
Keep up the great work - thanx again Shane
THE BIKER GUIDE: Shane, glad to hear that you have used the information on the web-site to find new places and mates... Many thanks for being a visitor!
Keep up the good work guys. Great site. Very informative. Nice to see your fb page has over 1200 likes too!
We have had quite a few hits from it looking at our motorbike tour auctions promotion. Thanks and well done again.
If Carlsberg were to make an informative bikers site this would def be it!
THE BIKER GUIDE: Kev what a truely wonderful and lovely thing to say. Many thanks for being a visitor and for taking the time to place this comment!
Just a little note recommend the Malvern Guesthouse at Bridlington.
We found it on Biker Guide website.
Had a lovely weekend the weather made it all the better. We will be staying there again.
Thanks Biker Guide xx
cracking website :-) I've had some great times because of this website (Thanks) :-)))))))))))
THE BIKER GUIDE: Many thanks for your comments, for taking to the time to let us know and ultimately for being a visitor of THE BIKER GUIDE - we do try!
Out riding fri 19th round chester my wife and I decided to find somewhere to stay over and found the Farndon Hotel on this site. We were very happy with the accomodation, food was excellent and the staff were all friendly and welcoming and would be very happy to return in the future
THE BIKER GUIDE replys:
Many thanks for your glowing report of the Farndon and we are glad you had a good time.
We strive to include genuine Biker Friendly places onto the web-site to make life easier for any Biker when finding a place to stop wheather pre-planned or whilst on the road.
Keep up the good work... A great site! Been a biker all my life, now 57 and loving it just as much
Found the Atlanta Hotel in Scarborough on THE BIKER GUIDE.
Eddie and Sue really made us feel at home and welcome. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean, and well supplied with everything you could need for any length of stay. The breakfast was tasty and filling (full english). Also, the price of the accommodation is extremely reasonable, given the comfort and the level of service... First class!
Just back from a long weekend in Keswick having stayed at the Ravensworth House B&B, which I found on your website.
Great place to stay in the centre of Keswick. Very clean accomodation with a great breakfast and the hosts couldn't do enough for us, with recommendations for places to eat, sending us to a friendly local garage for a couple of minor repairs and sorting out some parking at the rear of their house.
Would recommend to anyone going to the area.
THE BIKER GUIDE: Claire, many thanks for your comments and glad you had a great stay @ Ravensworth House!
Just Back from our Road trip of South Wales and what a Great Weekend it was and Thanks Again "THE BIKER GUIDE" the Bunkhouse we stayed in was spot on we are now looking forward to our Annual Road Trip of Cornwall in June.
Keep up the good work as we will be using more of your Biker Friendly Accommodation this year.
Greetings dudes n dudettes...

Hi again Biker Guide we have started to book our adventures for next year Starting of with a 3 day road trip of Wales and staying at the Ysbryd-Y-Gwynt Bunkhoue (Featured on THE BIKER GUIDE www.bunkhouseuk.co.uk) in late April, before we head to cornwall early June to stay again at the Penmarlam site...
This time i make sure we send you some pics of our Road Trips...
Reply from THE BIKER GUIDE:
Joe, glad to see you and the gang are touring around the UK and visiting places who are included on the website. As you know we strive to include genuine Biker Friendly places and look forward to more feedback from you!
I would like to echo Joes comments about our stay at the Penmarlam Caravan & Camping Park, Bodinnick by Fowey. We had a great time and we are booking up again with Marcus for the third year running and think that the popularity of this holiday will see many more bikers coming along with us this year.
Well done Again THE BIKER GUIDE...
This time we stayed at the Bunkhouse at Greencarts Farm in Northumberland on a stop over of our Road Trip of Scotland. A great place to stay in beautiful surrondings and we was well looked after.
Reply from THE BIKER GUIDE:
So glad you and the rest of the group are touring and finding that the places we have included on the website are Genuinely Biker Friendly!
We do try...
Recently stayed at the Bedingfeld Arms, in Norfolk. Good clean accomodation, fab food in the evening, full english b/fast to die for, brill choice of ale.
They have five rooms to choose from, 2 twin bed rooms, 2 doublebed rooms and a disabled room with twin beds in, all ensuite with tea and coffee and tv's.
Roads around there fab to have a play on. Had 3 good days, give it a go?
THE BIKER GUIDE: Glad you found a good place for Biker Friendly Accommodation on the website!
We stayed at Les Ballastieres in St Pol-sur-Ternoise, France, its a biker friendly B&B run by bikers in Northern France, fantastic facilities - drying facilities, small workshop and large games room, also wheelchair friendly, 5 mins from race track at Croix en Ternois, historic sites and medieval towns nearby. walking distance from town centre. A fantastic place to stay.
Hoping to hook this site up to ours. so that all our members and friends can come look too xx
THE BIKER GUIDE reply;
Many thanks for your comments and for the link... Banner on its way!
I stayed a couple nights at the MARKS FARM nr Kircudbright you have in the biker friendly accomodation in Dumfries and Galloway.
Extremely friendly great accomodation and use of a small lounge, felt more like a member of the family than a paying guest. If you like a real friendly reception its a top place.
Thanks Again 'THE BIKER GUIDE'.
This Time 15 of us went Back to The Penmarlem Camping Site in Cornwall...
Marcus and his team took great care of us. This is with out a doubt the best campsite for bikers in Cornwall, its in the perfect location to explore Devon and Cornwall. It has a well stocked shop and very clean shower blocks (even us bikers have to wash sometimes!) we will be back next year for our 3rd Annual tour of this lovely part of England.
So Thank you Marcus, everyone in our group had a great time.
Reply from THE BIKER GUIDE:
Joe, so glad you had a great time at Penmarlem, who are featured in the Biker Friendly Campsites section of the web-site.
We strive to include on the web-site genuine Biker Friendly places to stay at, including Campsites, B&B's, Hotels and Bunkhouses, that not only welcome and cater for owners of Motorbikes, are in areas which are of interest to the Biker Community and run by great people, such as Marcus!
Penmarlem Camping Site in Cornwall is certainly one of these and we are really glad to have introduced you and your mates to them!
Pictures please... Of course they will be clean due to the lovely showers
I was very moved by the story I SAW YOU on the Jokes and stuff page!
I really wish every one would just take that second look it only takes .65 seconds to look...take the time.
Best biker site that I've come across. Useful information and easy to navigate.
Hi all, im new to this cracking site. Got an SV650S & a Harley 883 Iron, I'm always found at the weekends either on chariy runs or just having a bimble with me mates, anyone from the south east london area thats like minded and would like to get a few weekend ride outs going?
Cheers all, brilliant site.....
Hi Biker Guide
Just happen to be surfing and found this great site.I've put this into my favorites and will visit often!
I haven't found a site like this in the North American Continet yet. I'm a member of GWRRA Chapter "Y" On Canada, but haven't yet got over to the UK yet. If our dollar keeps rising like it is, I'll be there very soon.
Keep the rubber side down & the shiney side up.
All the Best. Doug C.
I stayed couple nights at the MARKS FARM nr Kircudbright you have in the Biker Friendly Accomodation section for Dumfries and Galloway.
Extremely friendly, great accomodation and use of a small lounge. I felt more like a member of the family than a paying guest! Its about 3 miles out of Kircudbright. If you like a real friendly reception its a top place
At last... a website that features genuine Biker Friendly places and many Biker owned. It must be run by Bikers!
I have used other so called 'Biker Friendly websites' for somewhere to stay in the past and when you get there they are either not Biker Friendly (they just want your money), have no facilties for parking (have lied on the advert) and as some websites just fill up with free crappy listings they are so hard to use and choose.
I once stayed somewhere which was on another Biker Friendly accommodation site who had no parking when we got there and were really off with us. We asked them why they bothered to advertise to Bikers and they said 'the advert was free and who cares when we have their money' Nice...
The Biker Guide site has a great collection of interesting places to stay - Ive stay at a Bunk in Wales, Camping in Cornwall and a B&B in Whitby so far and they were all run by genuine people and we had a fab time.
This website is a must for all Bikers... get it in your favourites now
Reply from THE BIKER GUIDE:
Many thanks for your comments Tracey and we are really glad you are happy with the places you have already stayed at.
We do not overload the web-site with lots of listings and we do vet places before including them - in fact we would only include a place that we would be happy to stay at.
Sorry to hear about the unfriendly Biker place you stayed at - one of the reasons we started the web-site!
You're doing stering work here - very pleased to see the "Magnificant
Seven" on the front page... as were they!
I also got very good feedback about your response to them when they contacted you and used the
Many thanks to THE BIKER GUIDE for a great site, and sending us excellent customers, with bikes to drool over...
Penmarlam Caravan & Camping Park, Cornwall
Ive just had a wonderfull stay at Arden Cottage, Williton, Somerset. They offered garaged parking and a perfect huge breakfast. I highly recomend this establishment who are listed on www.thebikerguide.co.uk.
Oh yes... the A39 Bridgewater to Minehead what a cracker! Twists and turns all the way.

Just wanted to say thank you very much for making me aware of this site, awesome!
Come to Mission BC Canada everyone, we have the earliest spring sunshine and bike riding town there is!
I would like to thank THE BIKER GUIDE for helping us find a campsite in Cornwall...
Last September 7 of us stayed at the Penmarlam campsite for 3 nights and we had a great time (we are the guys in the picture on the Camping page) we have now booked another 3 night stay with Marcus and his team over the May Bank Holiday and plan on exploring more of Cornwall and Devon if anyone is thinking on touring this area this is a must stay Campsite....
Just to say thanks for a genuinely useful site and great to see High Laning in your recommended biker friendly camp sites!
Will be sorely missed this while away for this summer . . .
Thanks for a great site. I will be using it regulaly,
Question, do you know of any European events similar to the UK camping weekends, 2-3 day rallys etc, especially france,
I'd appreciate your help
THE BIKER GUIDE replied:
We get lots of events sent over during the year and for the European events a little nearer the time. FARO in Portugal is very popular and BSH Heroes organise a great trip to it. There are a few Harley-Davidson ones - Super rally Greece and Centrum, Netherlands.
In France the one I know of is Bike Blessing in Brittany.
If I get something through I'll send it over to you.
Merry christmas and a happy new year from all the guys at the Fallen Heroes MCC, and a big thank you for such a great web site

As we were new to the rally scene this year we would like to thank you for all the information you have provoided us with.
We have had good times meeting up with other friendly bikers.
Cant wait for next years events
I thinks this is a good site for bikers to look up rallys, events and hope it gets bigger with more events, rallys and biker info would be good thanks guys xx
THE BIKER GUIDE: We encourage all Bikers to send over any information on Rallies, Shows, events for inclusion onto the site, so that it can indeed grow and get bigger.
Just to keep you informed, we have sold approx 200 calendars and as the donation to NABD is £1 from the first one sold we have the start of a healthy donation.
As the set up costs for the calendar were huge we decided to donate £1 from everyone sold rather than when costs were covered. This is normal practice for many products with a charity donation and also from an administration perspective a more correct one.
We have managed to get press articles in a variety of local papers, including Birmingham Mail, Chester Chronicle, Tameside Reporter, Burton Mail, Stockport Express, Warrington Guardian, Lancaster Guardian and This is Bristol.
I would like to sincerely thank you for your support for The Biker Calendar for 2010.
Have a great Christmas and New Year!
