We have a family friendly cycle route. Bring a picnic with you for a ride before breaking in the parkland near to Wolfe's Obelisk to enjoy the views before retracing your route back to the New Inn visitor centre. Drop by to pick u a map of the route.

We enjoy welcoming all groups to stop at Stowe. Enjoy a well earned break with tea and cake in our cafe with a scenic view of the Corinthian Arch before heading off on the next leg of your journey.
