On your bike!
There are many adventurous souls who have cycled around our quiet country lanes, and some use the bridleways to escape onto the moors. We are fortunate to have the combination of quiet road and plenty of open countryside, without too many other people to share with. So pump up those tyres and get pedalling, we will give you a warm welcome whether for one night or several as you explore the area.
The fabulous Sea to Sea, C2C, cycle route that traverses England from one coast to another passes close to our door. The highest point on the whole route is actually at the top of the valley, so an easy way to finish the day, freewheeling down to your bed. Carrshield is also conveniently located approximately halfway along the route is the ideal place to stopover for the night and re-charge your batteries for the next day.
The roads in the area are much quieter than in many parts of the country, which make it an excellent location for cycling and enjoying tremendous views from the high points and some wonderful river valleys as well. If you would like to be more adventurous the moors in the area have a network of bridleways making it a great place to get off-road.
