Cycling and camping near London

Hello everyone.

My partner and I have just invested in a tent and we are ready to give it a go for a long weekend in June.

We were hoping to find some recommendations for campsites with cycling tracks around them, little towns to visit and some good pubs. We are looking for places within 2 hrs from London. We have a car so we don't need to be by a train station. We have been to the New Forest and absolutely loved it and now want to try something new.

Many thanks in advance,

Sally

Hi Sally,

I was going to suggest Dan's Meadow near Ipswich but I think you need to be a club member.

Suffolk is not very hilly, so good for cyclists.

Do a search on here:

Also look at Rutland Water. There is a 25 mile off road cycle path (some tarmac, some rough) around the shore. There is loads of beautiful on road cycling around villages in Rutland and adjoining bits of Leicestershire and Northants. Lots of nice pubs, and several campsites that I have never used, as a local.

Ps the horse and Jockey pub in Manton has its own campsite, and is right on the path around Rutland water. Plenty of other options too.

There is camping and plenty of cycling in the Lea Valley Country Park and that's practically on the doorstep!

North Norfolk? Lots of cycle paths along old railway lines and bridle ways, quiet country lanes, little villages and lots of pubs.
