What we do

Wine Rides is a unique cycle touring holiday. This three-day adventure will allow you to explore stunning English countryside, experience award winning wines and stay on beautiful vineyards. 

Three days cycling in beautiful countryside

Enjoy British wine and food

Two nights exclusive camping on vine yards

Cycle touring

If you have not been Cycle Touring before this is the perfect way to start. Our tours are all about experiencing beautiful countryside across the High Weald and East Sussex. We start and finish at Wadhurst train station near Royal Tunbridge Wells South of London. Each day, your luggage will be transported ahead to the final destination. After a guided tour on your first morning, you will be given a guide, including maps, directions and highlighting the best pubs, natural beauty spots and other vineyards en route.

With none of the hassle of carrying your own kit, there is no better way to see England and learn about its wonderful wine.

Food and wine

If you are interested in the provenance of your food then Wine Rides is the ultimate gastronomic experience. You eat and drink beside vines in a landscape of plenty.  Very few dining experiences put you as close to the source of your food as we do.

Each night, all guests will enjoy a complimentary wine tasting. For those guests who choose one of our all-inclusive packages, this is followed by a three course evening meal with your fellow cyclists. The next morning, we provide a hearty breakfast and will send you on your way with a few homemade snacks. As part of your guided tour on day 1, you will enjoy a picnic lunch and for the rest of your stay, we will recommend the best lunch stops around.

Camping

The tent is set up for you! Your two overnight stays will be at Sedlescombe and Carr Taylor vineyards. Here, a tented village will be waiting your arrival, set up exclusively for customers of Wine Rides. We offer tents for couples and singles, with the option of a bell tent for those looking for something a bit special. Alternatively, you are free to bring your own tent and camping equipment which will all be transported for you and waiting for you on arrival at the vineyard.

Our camping facilities include camping toilets and hot showers located in private, spacious wash tents. Our authentic camping experience allows you to camp amongst the stunning landscapes of vines and woodlands. At the end of the weekend our camp is packed away and the vineyard is returned to its pristine beautiful state.
