If you arrive by pedal power, park up, refuel with a well earned snack in one of our cafés and feel free to fill up your water bottle. And we hope you don’t need it, but just in case, our places now have pumps and puncture repair kits to help with any running repairs.
Fancy more of a challenge? Why not take in the sights of Wimpole Estate and the surrounding countryside? Mark Aimes is a keen cyclist in his leisure time and has helped us create this new 28 mile cycle route. Enjoy.
