BikersRest Motorcycle Trials Holidays

John & Brenda Luckett invite you to bring your trials bike on holiday to Lower Wembsworthy Farm where we have some 20 acres of private woodland with mixed terrain, situated in a steep valley with a stream flowing along the bottom.

We are situated on the North Devon, North Cornwall coastline between Bideford and Bude . This is a rugged coastline ideal for Surfing, swimming and walking we have the National Trust Coastal paths very close by as well as lots of other walks nearby and of course our own private woodland walks.

For the Trials riding there are 20 acres of private woodland in which to practice, along the bottom of the woods are three gullies, all going into the stream.

John's gulley at the eastern end of the woods, a lovely long twisting climb on shale and slabs.

Brenda's gulley in the middle of the woods, steeper and deeper but shorter with different exits on the way up.

The third gulley at the western end of the woods is Martyn's gulley, lower and upper, consisting of slabs and rocks, it is very steep and testing and is used in the National we hold here in May. .

We have been here for some 24 years, and have gradually cut out and made sections to satisfy all capabilities. Just 100 metres from Bikers Rest self catering cottage is half an acre of man made sections consisting of climbs and imported rocks and banks, plenty for everybody from the young to the not so young to enjoy.

We hold a centre championship here and also trials school in the summer so the sections are well used. We welcome young children as well as the older experienced trials riders.

In the woods plenty of tracks have been made and makes a good woodland walk with plenty of bluebells and primrose in season, they both look like blue and yellow carpets when they are out in flower. The holly is plentiful at Christmas as well. When you are in the woods it is like another world down there very calm and peaceful with the birds twitching away and the odd deer around. There are plenty of banks and climbs also there.

The local pub is less than two miles away.
