If you like the sound of Bikepacking but want more luxury than simply roughing it in the woods, then BikeGlamping is for you!...
We’ve created our ‘dream campsite’; one that we’ve fantasised about stumbling across at the end of a day’s riding on so many of our own adventures… and in doing so, we give you the opportunity to experience a truly special and exclusive ‘micro adventure’ package that has all the sense of freedom and escape of a bikepacking trip but takes away all the hassle and discomfort from wild-camping.
- Bike, luggage and kit hire is included (just turn up with a sleeping bag and enthusiasm!)
- Bespoke self-guided route for discovering the beautiful Peak District National Park in your own way.
- Unique & exclusive luxury bell tent woodland camp accommodation.
- Luxury, local produce, Firepot dinner and breakfast hamper included.
Arrive at our Hope Valley base where we’ll kit you out with all the gear you need for your adventure; bike, luggage and equipment. All you need to bring with you is a sleeping bag, some suitable clothes and a sense of adventure! Arriving by train? We’re just a short walk from Hathersage Station
In the morning we’ll brief you on your bespoke route of discovery through the Peak District National Park, pointing out interesting local gems and our top recommendations for re-fulling along the way. Along with a route map, we’ll get you set up with one of our easy-to-use bike GPS units, meaning you’ll always be aware of your next turn. Enjoy the ride through the back lanes, ancient tracks and flowing trails of the ‘White’ and ‘Dark’ Peak. We’ll tailor the route to your group’s needs and abilities, taking into account local conditions and winding you past all of our favourite spots. It’s up to you how fast you travel and how long you stop. This is your own journey of discovery.
At the end of your day’s ride you’ll emerge into our secret, ‘wild’ Glamping spot nestled in a stunning woodland location. You’ll discover a fully set up, private luxury camp with one of our cosy five meter Bell Tent UK Bell Tents, complete with kitchen, wood burning stove (for chillier nights) & comfy beds. Outside, the camp comes pre-setup with fire-pit seating area, dry wood store, shower tent and a spectacular ‘loo with a view’! We’ll also provide you with a luxury, local produce hamper containing your night's dinner, drinks and morning’s breakfast (along with a few extra-special camping treats…). Enjoy your evening relaxing and glamping in style away from all the hussle bussle of normal life, mesmerised by the sparks rising from the campfire into the night sky.
Day 2After waking up in the glorious peace of the woods, set off in your own time and continue your journey back towards us in the Hope Valley. You’ll now feel truly in the ‘rhythm’ of bike travel with the impression that you’ve perhaps been on the road for days. Watch the stunning Peak District landscapes change as they drift by and discover even more local treasures along the way. As you approach the Hope Valley you have the option of completing the last part of your journey by train as our Hope Valley line stops at several villages en-route (…for those who’d rather spend more time in the café’s and pubs!). Return back to us in the late afternoon and share all of the tales of your adventures over a well earned brew.
