If you’re looking for an active break with family or friends, Old Hall Caravan Park is ideally situated. With the UK enjoying a cycling boom, it’s never been a better time to take to two wheels and explore. On our doorstep you’ll find the quiet country lanes of the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the challenging hills of the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. Whether road cycling, mountain biking, or just pottering is your style, there really is something to suit all levels of ability.
If you don’t have your own bikes, there are many local bike shops and cycling centres that offer hire by the week, the day, or the hour. We’ve selected three of the best local routes to set your wheels in motion.
1. Gisburn Forest Bike Trails
Lancashire is widely recognised as one of the UK’s top mountain biking destinations. And with so much choice, there’s always a trail nearby to suit your stamina. Gisburn Forest offers fantastic mountain biking with beautiful views. Refuel at the Gisburn Forest Hub Café after an action-packed family day out. Bike hire is available, but best to do this online in advance.
2. Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
The outstanding scenery, picturesque villages and charming tea rooms of this protected area are all very close-by to Old Hall Caravan Park. Its network of quiet lanes is just waiting to be explored. There are several marked out looped routes to choose from allowing you to potter or race as you see fit! Cycle hire is available from local bike shops.
3. River Lune Cycle Path
This short ride is an easy and enjoyable route that follows the River Lune and National Cycle route 69 from the village of Caton to the centre of historic Lancaster. Caton is just 5 miles from Old Hall Caravan Park. The entire route is traffic free, via a riverside path and is ideal for families. Cycle to Lancaster for lunch and catch the street market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, before enjoying a meander back.
