After much consideration we have now taken the very hard decision not to open the guest house this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It would appear that the hospitality industry will be amongst the last businesses to come out of lockdown and we know that this is the right decision to help to protect not only us and our guests but also this area. There are very limited health care facilities and we cannot risk adding to the pressure they are already under.
We wish you a safe passage through these difficult times and will be delighted to welcome you here in the future.
Royal Enfield's Continental GT celebrates 50 years
May 10, 2014
A film crew from Surindera Studios stayed with us to film a recreation of the 1964 24-hour ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End marking the launch of Royal Enfield’s 1965 Continental GT model. As part of the initial ride, noted motorcycle racer John Cooper lapped the Silverstone race circuit where he reached a record-breaking 73mph.
The 50th anniversary ride also celebrates the launch of Royal Enfield’s first exclusive store in the UK.
Update: The ride was completed in 20 hours 57 minutes. Well Done!
