“Great if your hiring bikes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

As i live locally, i take my family to this place to hire bikes and follow the cycle paths around the pines. There is a lovely cafe and park for children to place on. There are different cycle paths depending on your cycle ability and experience. I personally take the family cycle path as it is less hilly and the most suitable for children (and unfit mums). A lovely trip out, especially in spring/summer. The concerts here are also very popular and good value for money. I wouldnt reccomend this place if you arent avid hikers or if you arent bike riding as this is what it is mainly there for.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

The trails are great after being recently resurfaced and redesigned, great for mountain bikers of all skill levels while at the same time is a great place to have a walk. The café is great offering a variety of food at a reasonable price. Overall extremely pleased with the pines. Will be returning!
