National and Local Cycle Routes Nearby
At our cottages on the coast we are sited on one of Sustrans designated cycle routes. It is easy to download brilliant cycle routes, mapped out by East Yorkshire Council, across the quiet rural roads of The Yorkshire Wolds . The North Yorkshire Moors and Dales are better known and very conveniently placed for York. You’ll discover a wide variety of both challenging and easier routes.
Bridlington is the finish point of the long distance Way of the Roses cycle route, which starts at Morecambe Bay and ends at Bridlington North Bay, just about a mile from our cottages here at Field House and High Barn.
Cycling in The Dalby Forest has fantastic rough terrain cycling with green through to black runs and is about 45 minutes by car from the coast and a little less from York. It provides a wonderful day outdoors, as there are plenty of other facilities on offer for the non-cyclists in the family/group.
EV Charging at High Barn Cottages and Field House Farm Cottages
We have recently installed two Type 2 Untethered 7Kwh chargers onsite at our coastal properties – one in the courtyard at Field House and one in the car-park at High Barn. We may make a small charge for this shared facility and we ask that you request usage from a member of the team. We can also offer a seven pin universal cable.
We regret we are unable to provide this facility in York.

Be adventurous! Try a cycling holiday or incorporate cycling into your holiday. John and I have returned to cycling as a great way to really appreciate the local countryside and of course, James and his young family have fun on their bikes. It’s good for the environment, plus your health! We’re probably years older than you are, so give it a go.
The Tour de Yorkshire is now a firmly established event in late April/ early May, providing plenty of excitement and action along each of the routes. ‘LE TOUR’ – the grand depart of the Tour de France, July 2014 was a spectacular success. York featured as the start point on Day 2 and the city positively buzzed with excitement. We were there and enjoyed watching the cavalcade followed by the 200 cyclists who rode by York Minster. Le Tour has enjoyed growing success and become a yearly event. The routes change each year, but usually take in both the Yorkshire Coast and York. It often uses Bridlington as the starting point and in 2020, Bempton is featured along the route. Here in Yorkshire it has made happy cyclists of us all!
One of the aims of the legacy of this big event is to provide every child in Yorkshire with access to a bike – what a great idea! Cycling really has taken off in Yorkshire.
