Marshwood Trails

Marshwood Trails LogoWe’re delighted to have linked up with Martin Gershon of Marshwood Trails to provide guided walks and cycle trips around our local countryside! What’s more you can choose to ride your own bike or if you’ve been put off by some of the hills that surround us, you can save your legs by hiring one of Martin’s electric bikes!

Martin is passionate about helping people discover the spectacular coast and countryside of West Dorset and East Devon, so he established Marshwood Trails to provide guided electric bike and walking tours. You have the choice of half and full day itineraries, each of which has been carefully designed to ensure guests experience the best trails and most scenic viewpoints, as well as learn more about the area’s vibrant history and sample its delicious local produce.

You can book a scheduled electric bike tour (click on the link for the current tours) or Martin can create a tailor-made itinerary for you. The scheduled tours cost:

  • £30 for a half day (typically 2.5 to 3 hours)

Electric BikePrices are per person and include cycle hire, based on a minimum group size of 2 and maximum of 6 people.

Prices exclude refreshments – you can either have a Reeds Restaurant picnic to take with you or the itinerary will schedule a stop at a country pub for lunch! Please note that use of the electric bikes is suitable for the over 14s only.
