Mountain Biking

For the more adventurous, mountain biking and Exmoor are just 15 miles from the Spinney. Exmoor is one of the best and most challenging off road cycling destinations in the UK. The combination of a beautiful and varied landscape and an excellent network of bridleways, lanes and other permitted tracks provide ample opportunity for cyclists to enjoy some fantastic rides.

The Spinney provides safeĀ  and secure storage for your bicycle. We also always have to puncture repair kits and many other cycling essentials that you may need.

We can also supply you with a tasty picnic, if you like.

Cycle hire is widely available throughout the area, so ask about it when you come to stay.
