Bike Riding In The Tweed Valley Is Now Even More Rewarding

May 4th 2021

The struggle to find the perfect route on a biking holiday is all too real. Thankfully if you’re planning to explore the Tweed Valley this season, it just got a whole lot easier.

Drawing on their extensive knowledge of the area, the team at Cleikum Mill Lodge have launched their own website in partnership with Swift Trails for two wheeled guests – compiling the best local biking routes. These will extend beyond the trail centres, using local wisdom to help you really make the most of the Tweed Valley. If you still have questions when you get there, fear not! The staff are on hand to share their wealth of expertise, so you don’t have to worry about a thing on your travels.

Routes are graded and have licensed Ordnance Survey Maps – along with written directions, escape routes and short cuts if needed. There’s also a GPX tracker to load on to your phone or other devices. Mountain biking and gravel routes are currently available to browse, all based along the Tweed Valley Railway Path so there’s no need for a car! Much more will follow, including local road rides.

Some lovely words about Cleikum Mill Lodge

March 3rd 2021

Hostels will soon be open again, in the meantime we’d like to share some reviews shared of Cleikum Mill Lodge. See the joy hostels bring and why people keep coming back to Cleikum.

Lauretta had this to say

“Perfect location and accommodation for MTB weekend

Myself and 9 others had a perfect weekend at Cleikum Mill a few weeks back, the milk, tea and coffee, not to mention cereal in the cupboards were all a refreshing touch for a self catering facility – well done Graham. We hired both apartments for which the bike room was perfect; washer, dryer and somewhere secure for the bikes, what more could you ask for….well that would be the well presented apartments, each with sky TV for those who do…. Out of all the self catering establishments we have used over the past 11 years of biking at Inners and Glentress this has been by far the best yet. We’ll be back for sure and even possibly before the end of the year.
Well done Graham”

“Brilliant place for a family getaway.
We stayed here over new year. Our party was made up of 5 family groups so we had the whole mill to ourselves. The place was perfect for us. On a practical level, there was more than enough pans, utensils and dishes for the 11 of us and we could all fit around the table. The upstairs lounge gave the kids somewhere to play (and eat sweets!) away from the grown ups, much to their delight! It’s a pity the big kitchen is upstairs and the big table is downstairs, but given how the property is rented most of the time it makes perfect sense. Graham is a brilliant host and I wouldn’t hesitate to book here again.” Said Jennifer

“Quality accomodation
Stayed here for 3 nights. Clean, comfortable and conveniently situated on main road through town – on street parking adjacent. Comfortable en-suite rooms, large lounge with Sky TV. Well equiped kitchen and large dining room. Everything modern and clean. Very pleasant stay.” From Dean
