The Coast to Coast Trail allows cyclists to travel from the North coast to the South coast in less than 2 hours. This cycle trail is just part of an extensive network following the routes of 7 former mining railways called "The Mineral Tramways". We have a lovely 2 bedroomed cottage which has a beautiful garden enjoying stunning views - cottage residents receive free bike hire throughout their stay.

Great lunch and opportunity to chat to the team at Elm Farm today. Lovely sausage bap - pork from pigs reared on the farm and eggs from the garden. Campsite looked amazing and we hope to come back in the summer.
