Heritage Escapes and Cycling the Yorkshire Wolds

Heritage Escapes welcomes cyclists to the Yorkshire Wolds

Heritage Escapes recognises that cycling is growing in popularity. Here in Yorkshire we’ve seen a rise in the number of visitors who bring their bikes with them on holiday. They’re here to enjoy the experience of quiet country roads across the Yorkshire Wolds, dedicated cycle routes and less traffic in cities like York, which positively encourages two wheels rather than four.

With this in mind, we realised we needed a bespoke cycle store to reflect our luxury cottage accommodation at High Barn. In 2019 we commissioned a local firm in Hull to build us a bike pod, which arrived and was installed, adjacent to the car parking area, ready for the 2020 season. The result is splendid! When most people see it for the first time they imagine it is a camping pod, it looks so good. So in our case, the humble bike shed has been re-created as the luxury bike store, complete with charging for electric bikes, covered outdoor seating for rest and recovery and plenty of indoor space for up 6 bikes. 

In addition to our bespoke bike store, we have a large tractor shed at Field House Farm Cottages which is locked each night and where bikes may be store safely.

Nearby, is one of our EV charging points for cars……but that’s another story.
