On the afternoon of you arrival its time to collect your bikes in readiness for the first days travel. Itís also a chance for us to catch up with you and chat about your trip and also to advise you on the best places to eat and if required book them for you and answer any questions you may have, and finally transport your luggage between overnight stops.
You stay in comfortable family-run hotels, country inns, friendly guesthouses and farmhouse bed and breakfasts along the trail that have been carefully chosen for the warmth of their welcome, the quality of their accommodation and their accessibility to the trail. We always book en-suite rooms with private bathrooms where they are available, but some, in the remoter areas where accommodation is limited, may not have private facilities.
When booking your holiday you can customise your trip by building in extra nights for rest days or sightseeing. Please contact us if you would like assistance in deciding where to spend an extra night.
These can be booked on most routes - the supplement is £25 per night.
The holidays are run on a bed and breakfast basis. A full English breakfast is included in the price, but we leave you to pay for your packed-lunches and evening meals. Your Tour Pack contains information on places to stop for lunch or buy picnic materials also the best places to eat in the evening. Some of the guest houses we book can also provide evening meals, and we recommend you try this home cooking where available.
We transport your luggage between overnight stops (one suitcase per person). Every time you arrive at a new destination, your luggage will be waiting for you, so all you need to carry on your walk is a light daypack containing whatever you require for the day such as waterproofs, camera and picnic lunch.
Bikes & equipment
In conjunction with our partners we supply hybrid bikes that have been specifically designed for road cycling (but also cope with tracks, with care). We think they are brilliant, and a real pleasure to ride. If you prefer to use a mountain bike or tandem, please let us know when you book. They are provided with a helmet, pannier, lock, tyre levers & repair kit.
The Trail Pack
All the information you need for an enjoyable, worry-free cycling holiday is contained in the Trail Pack that we provide. This will be sent to two week before the start of your holiday
Please note that transport to the begining and from the end of the trail is not included in the price.

Relax and Explore 11
Our new relax & explore cycling holiday is designed for those that want to take it a little bit easy and enjoy the thrill of being on a bike but not the hard work of long distances and big hills.
Enjoy 2 nights at each stopping point with one complete day to head off and explore the area. 2 gently undulating circular routes are on offer, carefully put together by our cycling team to make the most of the local landscape and have been thoughtfully designed to avoid the big hills as they meander inland through sleepy villages and peregrinate along disused railway lines.
