From easy, level trails around the lakes in our 45-acre estate at Lakeview Manor to long-distance cycling with a challenge across moorland or round the coast, your cycling holiday in Devon can be whatever you need it to be. Save time and effort loading your bikes up on the car and hire cycles free of charge when you get here, for a day at a time.
Devon has so many different experiences to offer on a cycling holiday. If you just fancy an hour here or there, stopping for refreshments when it all gets a bit much, just tootle round the quiet country lanes nearby. If you’re looking for something more challenging, there are coast and moors, on-road and off-road trails, challenging climbs and long-distance rides across the county.
Back at Lakeview Manor, your luxury hotel and lodge accommodation await, along with a restaurant and bar to save you the effort of rustling up meals after your exertions, and even the option of a private hot tub for the ultimate wind down.
Unusually for a holiday resort, we have free bike hire, to make your cycling holiday easy and stress-free. It’s all included in your holiday booking at Lakeview Manor and it’s perfect for a family holiday in particular, when you have enough to pack and think about before setting off. It means you can pick your days for cycling, rather than having the bikes getting in the way when you don’t need them and you can all enjoy family time together. There’s free cycle helmet hire too as well as bike care advice and some tips on the best cycling in the area. Free bike is available for cyclists from the age of 7 upwards and is first come, first served each day.
Devon has some of the most thrilling and scenic cycling in the UK. From our picturesque 45-acre estate, criss-crossed with family-friendly trails, you can set off on local rides. A favourite for families and couples is the ride along the banks of the River Otter on our doorstep. You’ll want to stop often to enjoy the views, as the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)and the East Devon AONB surround us.
For a more committed cycling holiday, take to the National Cycle Network and explore hundreds of miles of trails in the southwest, Enjoy a challenging climb in the Blackdown Hills, or the Quantock Hills, or pick up the South West Coast Path at Sidmouth, just ten miles away, for a thrilling cycle along the south coast of Devon and Cornwall. Finally, explore the trails and byways of Exmoor and Dartmoor.
Whether your idea of a UK cycling holiday is a fair-weather adventure or a lucre-clad challenge, Lakeview Manor is located to make it a memorable cycling holiday in Devon.
Just like skiing, cycling leaves you feeling tired but exhilarated and you need to be able to wind down, share stories of your cycling day and get ready for the next big adventure. Lakeview Manor is the perfect place to wind down. If you are saying at the hotel, your room will be ready, with the bed turned down and nothing for you to think about other than dinner in the Dabbling Duck and a drink or two in the bar. If you’re in a self-catering lodge, relax on your decking, enjoying lake and country views, before heading up the Dabbling Duck to save cooking a dinner. You can even intersperse your cycling days with free fishing on the lake for a complete change of pace.
Best of all, choose a lodge with a hot tub and feel the revitalising massage of the jets soothe your cycle-weary limbs. At Lakeview Manor, a cycling holiday becomes so much more, with holiday memories to cherish.
