Coast to coast self guided cycling holiday in England
Memorable parts? Hmmm, so many good bits. Seeing such diverse parts of the country with such different landscapes - all within 140 miles; having the route to ourselves most of the time; meeting the challenge of a three-day cycle with quite a lot of big hills; meeting lovely people; great B&Bs etc. I will definitely remember the torrential rain... Tips? If you have the time, consider taking an extra day. We underestimated how long it would take to complete each day's ride and would... (more)Biddy Walcot

Mountain biking holidays in England
Memorable parts? It was great to see the fantastic scenery and villages of the South West and this was just the mountain biking challenge I was looking for, both in terms of technical skill and fitness. The guides were very helpful (e.g. we got a lesson in bike maintenance) and friendly.

Day 3 was definitely the best with superb weather, stunning views over the Bristol... (more)Helena Posnett

Hadrians Wall cycling holiday, England
Memorable parts? The stunning scenery especially on the middle two days of the trek. Finishing wasn't too shabby either!!!!!!! Tips? Maybe not stay at Vallum Lodge or Heddon Lodge - OK but not inspiring. Local benefits? Definitely! Overall rating? Really really good! (more)Alison Watson

North Cornwall luxury organic accommodation, England
The owners of the B.B were lovely people, very friendly and helpful. Also a beautiful house, wonderful food. Walking around the garden, growing of organic food, so yes I will give them 100per cent (more)Diana Conkerton
Gill and Neil make you feel very at home and I was very well looked after. I even got a ride out in the pony and trap one evening - an added bonus! I had a lovely, relaxing week and would definitely recommend this accommodation to other people. I would be very happy to stay there again in the future. (more)Moira Siara
'Organic' here goes far beyond food. The bed linen is organic cotton, as are the toiletries. Everything is focused around sustainability; your bath water is solar heated, and there are log fires in each of the reception rooms. (more)Vikki Clamp
