With a car-light environment, cycling through our villages is a wonderful way to explore our glorious woodland and get to your next activity. At the Cycle Centre our knowledgeable staff will make sure you get exactly the right equipment for your height, age and ability. From adult and junior mountain bikes, to tandems, tag-a-longs and trailers, we have every option you can think of. We also stock a range of accessories to keep you safe and comfortable as you pedal, including helmets and protective gear, water bottles, lights and gloves. These are available to buy or hire.
It's best to book your cycles in advance as they are very popular. You can pre-book cycles, activities and restaurants from 12 weeks before you arrive. We recommend that all cyclists wear a helmet. Don't have your own? Helmets, bike locks and more are available to buy or hire from the Cycle Centre.
Pre-booked cycles can be collected between 11am – 8pm on your arrival day and should be returned between 8am – 10am on your departure day. On non-arrival and departure days, the Cycle Centre opening times are 9am – 5pm.
We highly recommend you pre-book cycles before your break as they are very popular! If you are already on your break and haven't pre-booked any cycles, you can head to our Cycle Centre on Tuesday or Saturday to hire cycles directly from here if there is availability.
Duet bikes, which are suitable for wheelchair users, are available to book via our contact centre on 0818 818013
