Gourmet Cycling Breaks
HOME OF THE ABERGAVENNY FOOD FESTIVAL
Gentle days with lovely views and a focus on good food. Ideal for novice cyclists or if you simply want to relax.
Traffic Free Cycleways
A beautiful canal and old railway line link us to Abergavenny's excellent lunch spots. Soak up the beautiful landscapes & enjoy a gentle electrically assisted bike ride.
Quality Time to Relax
After lunch explore the pretty market town of Abergavenny, a riverside walk or stroll around a private arboreutum before gently cycling back to your suite.
We are situated just outside the pretty town of Crickhowell, renowned for its independent Pubs, Cafes and Shops. It's the perfect choice for evening meals.
Choose from two spacious suites. Sleep in and enjoy your luxury continental breakfast in your suite at the time you choose.
Discover Gourmet Touring by e-Bike
Become part of the landscape, go slow and soak up the views. Admire old trees and houses and stop to read heritage notice boards to reflect on times gone by. It's rather like going for a walk but you can sit down and relish how the power assistance enables you to travel along so easily with just gentle pedalling. Quiet Lanes is the perfect destination for easy cycling holidays in the UK.
We are absolutley blessed with a gorgous canal moments from our property. Cycling on the towpath is a naturally slowing experience. After practicing in our large private carpark the evening before the first day out is just over an hour each way of the most gentle cycling possible. There's even a coffee stop after 40 minutes. As if designed for us, the canal joins a disused railway that brings you to the edge of Abergavenny. Come and join us for the best cycling holiday in UK.
The SatNav on the bike will direct you to your chosen venue using the official cycle path or leading you through quiet residential streets (prepare for some time on Rightmove that evening!). There is one very short section we suggest you ride on the pavement so we don't break our promise of Quiet Lanes and Traffic Free Cycleways.
Abergavenny has an ever growing reputation for food (and cycling!). We've designed routes to the landmark lunch venues and a place to leave the bikes if you have other plans, or if want to spend time looking around the town.
Our location at The Neuadd is stunning so you may want to spend time here reading a book, taking a stroll or having an evening picnic. We are close to Crickhowell, very much the jewel of the region with it's strong community of independent shops, cafes and some excellent pubs.
On the second day the ride heads in the opposite direction along the canal and is equally beautiful. The SatNav will assume you'd like coffee by the canal after about 30 minutes, then after visiting a lock and keep pond the route takes a quiet lane to a truely gorgeous hotel over looking a salmon river for lunch. There's time here to really soak up the ambience, perhaps with stroll alongside the river.
Freedom, Independence and Choice
The itinery above is our recommendation for a Gourmet Tour but you will also recieve briefings for a variety of other rides, so if you fancy bigger rides, a picnic in the mountains or the chance to cycle to a pub in the evening, then the choice is yours. Your luxury continental breakfast supplies will be in your suite prior to your arrival so you can breakfast as early or late as you fancy.
