Who we are and where we came from....


Nigel Bulmer & Yvonne (Tivvy) Brown have been running Bikers Retreat since February 2001.

They came from the south east, and took over from Stan & Sue Pepper who were the brains behind the idea of making a guest house into a dedicated home away from home for motorcyclists

Nigel & Tiv first came to Bikers Retreat in 1999 and loved it so much that, when Stan & Sue said they were retiring, they moved heaven and earth to buy it off them.

Nigel & Tiv met through motorcycle training, having both been instructors with the former Barking & Dagenham Motorcycle Training Scheme.

They were members of the Essex IAM (Later Essex Advanced Motorcyclists)

To say that motorcycling is their passion is a bit of an understatement, but it is closely followed by their love of dogs!
