Reasonably priced with good advice from the staff to ensure you have pleasant ride around the area. On a sunny day this is a great day for young children. On rainy days it can still be great fun due to the out standing effect from the rain on the local waterfalls. We love cycling around all the reservoirs. Read up... More

We bought a Groupon for 2 adult bike hire for a full day costing £16.90. Two guys in the cycle hut were very friendly and adjusted our bikes and told us about a trail which would last around 2 hours. It was really enjoyable although the terrain right at the top of the trail was pretty bumpy. The bikes were... More

We didn't use the cycle hire part of this so please don't take this review as to a guide to hiring bikes here. However... The tea and coffee lady's in the same building were perhaps the most rude and inhospitable people I've ever met. A simple request for a black coffee (which based on a serious milk allergy isn't an...

The views whilst cycling round are beautiful. It took 2 hour to complete the 12 mile as we are not cyclists, There's some lovely picnic spots if you plan... More

Hired mountain bikes for a very reasonable price of £13 for 5 hours. Didn't get around all of the reservoir today, but will do on our next visit. The weather was great, which added to a fun day. The cycle routes are not taxing and are pet and child friendly, particularly on a weekend when the road is closed to... More

Good bikes for hire, very nice cycle route with good scenery away from cars. Maybe bikes could come with bottle holders and bells. Good service overall.

You won't regret this jaunt out to Ladybower. The scenery is fantastic and the service excellent. The chaps in the bike hire place are really very helpful and will accommodate all sizes, adults and kids. If you're not sure - just do it.

We got here as a group of 4 adults and a little on, after several years of visiting Ladybower we tried the cycle hire place. The service started off quite bad, as my minimum of two hours went into closing time which set the guy behind the counter off, into some sort of bad mood, and still had to pay... More
