Discover the Broads' Best kept secret

Cycle Hire

The Broads and surrounding countryside are the ideal place for cycling. Quiet roads, gentle slopes, beautiful countryside and fresh air, all combine to make cycling a real pleasure.

There are plenty of pretty villages within easy reach, with ancient churches, wind pumps, pubs, cafes and other attractions to enjoy. You can even make it to the nearby coast, with its rolling waves, dunes and beautiful sandy beaches.

Above all, there are stunning views of the Broads, with sails gliding across marshland fields, all beneath the spectacular skies for which the area is famous.

The Aldeby short circular trail (8 miles) will take you through the ‘triangle’ villages of Aldeby, Wheatacre and Burgh St Peter. En-route you’ll visit Boon’s Heath, Aldeby Church, Three Gates Wood, Aldeby Staithe and Stanley Hills.

The longer (15 mile) Burgh St Peter trail extends to the villages of Raveningham, Thurlton and Haddiscoe and includes visits to Three Gates Wood, Toft Monks church and Raveningham Hall.

Please note – these are not off-road routes, you will meet cars and other vehicles on these roads during your trip.

By taking our ferry across the river to Suffolk, you can easily cycle to Oulton Broad, Carlton Colville, Beccles and Lowestoft. Please note however that the first 400m is a footpath only so you should push your bike until you reach the bridal path at Carlton Marshes.

Bicycles can be hired from us by the day (£14) or half day (£10) and long or short route maps are available free of charge. Secure cycle storage is availbale for our guests (subject to availability).
