Churnet Valley Cycle Hire
Cycle through the Churnet valley and discover the hidden charm of this picturesque landscape, a setting rich in history and natural beauty.
This quiet trail follows the river Churnet through woodland and meadow along the old railway line from Prestwood to Oakamoor.
The Ramblers Retreat
The route home from Oakmoor takes you through Dimmingsdale.
Dimmingsdale is a true hidden gem with stunnning scenary including lakes, streams, mixed woodland, rocky outcrops and abundant wildlife. Keep a look out for herons, kingfishers, and both spotted and green woodpeckers.
While at Dimmingsdale visit the Ramblers Retreat www.ramblersretreat.co.uk
I love this place :-) You can sit in the gardens and have anything from an ice-cream, drink, snack to full course dinner, well worth a visit.
We offer a range of picnics and hampers that can be booked in advance
with many beautiful picnic spots on route.
