Cycling at Meon Springs and in the South Downs
Drive anywhere in the Meon Valley and East Hampshire and you'll soon realise why this is such a popular area for cyclists. From the reasonable flat Meon Valley Trail to the more challenging hills of the South Downs, there's something for everyone.
If you've got your own bike then bring it along. But if you need to hire one, we have a selection of mountain bikes in different sizes set aside for our guests to hire.
You can book your bike when you book your glamping holiday with us.
Here are just a couple of routes to get you pedalling.
An easy route

This is an easy two mile route around the valley bottom (no hills) that is great for families, with children. Being a farm, you will likely see a cow or two in the fields and there may be some fences you have to negotiate.
