    Last year I did Homestay, Hotel and camping - Hotel was the least favourite.

    Homestay was great - lovely house with ensuite stable for the horses !. Felt a bit like a guest and didn't want to mess the carpet or be a nuisance - but lovely people, and others staying there as well in the big house.

    The camping at Silly Moos was fantastic - big cow shed with TV and pool table for the evenings. Bench tables and chairs so you often got chatting to others - free tea and coffee, bikes everywhere, a band sometimes - queue for the loos and showers in the morning ! - Ramsey just down the road, cheap really compared to other stuff over that period. Good crowd, nice people recommended.

    With the camping I have posted the bulk of the camping stuff to the campsite so as not to have to carry it there on the bike. I like camping anyway - so quite happy on a campsite.

    Looks and sounds great , I'm thinking of taking my son on the back for a bit of bonding time.
    Is it simple to book the ferry and what do you think the availability would be ?

    I will be on the phone on Monday but also have a trackday at brands on Monday, we normally rent a house, last time it was £1400 but slept 6 so cheaper than camping with TV , shower and toilet.

    i was looking at taking a van with the bikes in the back as cant see me taking the CBR otherwise
