Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire are wonderful places to explore on a bike, cycling along the many quiet, beautiful country lanes and bridle paths with the lovely countryside, striking local scenery and pretty villages of the Cotswolds, stop off at one of the many pubs listed on our website.
For shorter rides there are also scenic routes around our local villages. (Although intermittent on the small roads, traffic can be fast so we would not recommend the roads for young cyclists.)
Cycling on the farm
Heath Farm has 70 acres of stunning woodland much of which is easily accessible on a bike in fair conditions. The woodland is split up into various sections, there are flat tree sections including apple, cherry and nut orchards all of which have mown avenues to easily navigate on a bike. There are also more challenging areas as you drop down the heath on the far side of the farm. These include various mountain bike trails which are for experts only (helmets compulsory). If you’re in the woodland you’re on our land! We provide maps of the trails and walks in the welcome folder in the cottages. More extensive maps, books, leaflets on local cycling routes, hire and guided rides are provided in the games room.
There’s plenty of country roads that are easy to access after a brief ride on the main road which are ideal for cycling in nearby countryside. There are many circular routes dependent on you ability. We provide maps of the trails and cycle routes in the welcome folder in the cottages. More extensive maps, books, leaflets on local cycling routes, hire and guided rides are provided in the games room.
