Farm holidays with cycling


Roads around towns and in cities are too busy and unsafe to take children cycling. The ideal is traffic free purpose built cycle paths or quiet country lanes and farm tracks. There are plenty of those in the UK and Ireland where old railway lines have been converted or cycle networks created. Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire offers a good network of safe cycleways for the whole family.


cottages to rent for farm holidays

Cycles are available to borrow on some farm holidays or can be hired. It is best to bring your own bicycles for children to ensure that they arfe the right size unless you visit a cycle hire centre.

Make the most of those quiet lanes around a farm on a bike.

A network of cycle paths is available in numerous English counties and is a major feature of those with flat countryside.

East Anglia and Norfolk are very good for cycling breaks because of their lack of hills and abundance of farmland. The Isle of Wight, although slightly hilly, is mainly rural and has a wealth of small country lanes little traffic. There are plenty of holiday cottages to rent in the Isle of Wight for cycling breaksfor a cycling break surrounded by good scenery.

Ireland, across the Irish Sea is another land of cycling opportunities. Again, vast swathes of farmland are intersected by small country lanes that rarely see a car. These are the best places for safe family cycling holidays.
