    :wine:Hi everyone

    House sitting in Laurenskirk next month and have decided to take the van up and spend 2 days doing the 400+ miles from home.

    Penrith is half way, can anyone recommend a place to overnight in November near the M6 at Penrith

    Thanks

    Thanks ScotJimLand, talk about ignoring the obvious

    Do you know how much do they charge for an overnighter?

    £6 if I recall correctly, there is plenty of good parking away from HGVs and coaches around the back of the farm shop.

    But better still is to Wildcamp at J 39.:thumb:
    Just go to J39, and turn right.
    Wild it at the top of Shap opposite a quiet council yard in the middle of nowhere.:ROFLMAO:
    Good views of the M6 and the countryside.:thumb:
    And all Free!:thumb::ROFLMAO:

    You Know!
    Forestboy has just reminded me of something that is really worth a look and its on your way!
    Theres a place called Kirkby Stephen just off the M6 near Shap and if you like your old motorbikes theres a really old fashioned garage with the most amazing collection of early 1900s bikes and an old ford model T in the window just before you get to the town centre!
    If you ask the guy nice he will let you in the shop for a close up!
    The town itself is beautiful but to catch a glimse of such amazing bikes is worth the hour de-tour!
    And the town is worth a peek too!
    Its a little gem if you like that kind of thing!
    I worked across the road on a small housing project a couple of years ago!
