Devon Cycling Holidays

The Devon cycling tour explores spectacular and beautiful coastline and open moorland.  We cycle through ancient villages and towns and the historic naval city of Plymouth, from where the Pilgrim Fathers set off for America in 1620.

In the South Hams we cycle on backroads through a hilly but beautiful rural landscape with some of the most beautiful coastline in Britain.  When we leave Plymouth we spend two days on a special bike path that contours round the West and the North of Dartmoor. 

We’ll meet wild ponies, visit the bronze-age village of Grimspound, visit a 19th century forge in Sticklepath and the world's oldest steam engine in Dartmouth.

Trip details

Hilly, but beautiful, with surprisingly good food; we start and finish in Bow Creek; 8 days / 7 nights. This tour is available as a self-guided option.

Tour dates

Our guide led us expertly on each day's ride of 30 miles or so, selecting quiet roads and tasty lunch stops and, at the end of every afternoon, a comfortable hotel with a menu to do justice to the region's rich gastronomy. He carried a repair outfit, a first aid kit and a sense of humour, which coped with almost every eventuality.
