Whether you’re a fair-weather two-wheeler or a cycling supremo, our secluded corner of Devon is just perfect for a cycling holiday. And if strapping the bikes to the car is a chore, leave them at home and take advantage of our free bike hire. Get on your bikes to explore the local area. Stop for refreshments in picture postcard Devon villages, head to the coast to feel the cool sea breeze as you clock up the miles, or go off-road across the moors for a thrilling adventure. When the day’s cycling is over and you’re ready to relax, we’ll see you back at Clawford Lakes, where you can chill out in the Luxury Spa and Pool or sink into your private hot tub and feel the bubbles bring your legs back to life.
If cycling is just one part of a fun-filled holiday for you, save the faff of bringing the bikes and simply hire them for free at Clawford Lakes. Free cycle hire is one of the many little extras we like to include to make your holiday special, even though we know most holiday resorts charge. Our free cycle hire is perfect for families, allowing you to hire for a day here and there, whenever your holiday agenda calls for it. Pick up your bikes from our onsite cycle hire hub, along with your free helmet hire, some useful bike care advice and a few secret tips on the best local cycling.
For a family-friendly cycling trip, explore our 80 acre estate at Clawford Lakes or head to Roadford Lake or Cookworthy Forest and combine your cycling with an afternoon of nature watching. There are 150 miles of National Cycle Network in Devon and nearly 200 miles in Cornwall, offering some of the most picturesque cycling in the UK. Pick up the trail at Holsworthy for a leisurely 24-mile return trip to Bude. If you’re a committed cyclist looking for longer routes, once you get to Bude, take the Southwest Coastal Path and enjoy sea views with your cycling before looping back to Clawford Lakes. Save another day for Dartmoor, where there are over 200 miles of bridleways and byways. Whatever you want from a UK cycling holiday, from freewheeling down country lanes on a sunny day to tackling challenging treks, with Devon and Cornwall on your doorstep, Clawford Lakes is the ideal base.
Whether you’re all about picnic panniers and sightseeing or top-to-toe Lycra and cycling computers, you need to recover after a cycling trip. And that’s where Clawford Lakes excels as the perfect base for a cycling holiday. Choose your accommodation from a range of luxury options, many with lakeside settings. Wind down over at the Luxury Spa and Pool, where you can do a few lazy lengths with views across the lake and step into the sauna for an all-round healthy glow. Even better, book a spa treatment to round off the perfect day. And if you book a Lakeside Lodge with a hot tub, you can recover from your exertions as the bubbles gentle massage your tired limbs.
