Walking/Cycling

Base for walking or cycling

We think our holiday hideaway, Pike House Cottage, could be an ideal holiday cottage for your self-catering accommodation stay while walking or cycling in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK. We have a lockable workshop in which to store bikes and a drying area for outside clothes accessible from an outside door.

Climb up into the Forest of Dean, which soars to 290 metres at its highest point, and enjoy walking and cycling in this ancient Forest, designated the country's first National Forest Park in 1938, surrounded by free roaming sheep and fallow deer. (Quote from www.wyedeantourism.co.uk/)

The Forest of Dean provides such varied terrain and scenery, with an extensive network of stoned, roads and paths, it is perfect for cyclists of all abilities. Road riders can look forward to winding country lanes and short hill climbs. Families can use the popular cycle paths in the Cannop Valley safely away from traffic, and for keen mountain bikers the forest tracks provide wild opportunities with an excellent dedicated off-road area.
