New Cycling Holidays for 2018

January 17, 2018

We're pleased to be able to launch three brand new cycling holidays for 2018

 

Slow Food Cycle tour

 

For food lovers, craft beer enthusiasts and wine buffs and  cyclists of all types. Shropshire has an amazing reputation for the quality of it food producers... and of course food is probably one of the most important elements of a cycling holiday.  This cycle tour gives you the time to explore some of the local food producers; craft breweries (one of which, the Three Tuns has been brewing since 1642 ), vineyards, and to see food being produced with victorian methods (At Acton Scott historic working Farm) and modern methods (at Ludlow Food Centre and Ludlow Brewery).  Look out for unique Shropshire foods like the Shropshire Prune (damsons), cider and hops from the Teme Valley, trout & salmon from our sparkling rivers, wild game and of course Shropshire hill grown lamb.  All to be found in the restaurants where you are stay overnight.

 

 

Shropshire Wildlife Cycling Safari

 

Take time to explore by bike & find out about the local wildlife.  A quiet approach (by bike) and a bit of patience can reap great rewards, our customers regularly see kingfishers, red kites, deer and woodland birds, some have even seen otters during the day.  And all make use of our bat detectors to find out which bats inhabit the buildings around their accommodation at night...the detectors can even help you hear the bats snapping up juicy moths to eat.  

 

But you would need to be very lucky to see the latest Shropshire Wildlife find; pine martens, click on the picture below to see the YouTube video of them (filmed close to Hopton Castle, featured in the picture above)

 Farmhouse Cycling Holiday for families

 

Spend more time with your family (or friends) on an action packed cycling holiday. Stay in a very atmospheric Farmhouse, right in the centre of the historic border town of Clun.  This farmhouse has ingle nook fires, lots of wooden beams and wonky floors and dates from the 16th century.
