Dimpsey is all about rest and relaxation, but we also know our guests like to keep fit and embrace the great outdoors. Dimpsey is perfectly placed for those who love to walk and cycle. Cycle routes are in abundance in the magnificent hills of the Blackdowns.
The Blackdown Hills have excellent on-road cycling on mainly quiet country lanes. For reasonably fit and experienced cyclists, the trails are a perfect way to spend a day getting out and about and exploring Dimpsey’s neighbouring sites. Some cyclists have noted some challenging hill climbs, but they are so worth it for the amazing views and exhilarating downhill stretches.
Imagine a day with a breakfast cooked in the purpose built outdoor kitchen, then a cycle route that we can help with, accompanied by a packed lunch that we can make for you to take with you, real fresh air as you whizz up and down the rolling hills, spotting birds and wildlife, and then coming on back to the fantastic hot tub, which you can fire up whilst your tea is cooking, and relaxing inside or outside the hut with a home-cooked meal! Perfection!
These are the recommended cycle routes in the area: http://www.blackdownhillsaonb.org.uk/Routes.html
Glamping and cycling are a match made in the Blackdown Hills!
