    Devon cycle hire trail
    This was excellent, you could have half day or full day hire. Andrew who runs the place is extremely helpful and friendly. He makes sure you have the most suitable bikes. Then the ride along the Granite Way, was spectacular, the views were stunning. It was fairly easy going, a few rises but overall extremely enjoyable

    Shelter from the storm
    After several hours of cycling in miserable wind and rain, finding Devon Cycle Hire was like discovering an oasis in the desert. I enjoyed a dry place to wait out the worst of the weather, had a nice cup of tea and a scone, and had a pleasant hour or so chatting with the proprietor until the weather improved. Definitely one of the more memorable moments during my LeJog journey.

    Great place to hire bikes
    Really great bike hire. The owner couldn’t be more helpful, even hired us bikes when they weren’t properly open for the season! Bikes were really comfortable and well maintained and it’s a great place to cycle from to view the Meldon viaduct and Dartmoor and nearly the entire route is on easy tarmac. Plenty of pubs to drop into on the way, all in all a fantastic day out at any time of the year.

Fantastic service. Friendly with excellent facilities. The bikes were of great condition and we had a trailer for our 5 year old. Stunning views over the viaduct toward Okehampton

Fantastic bike trail (and path for walkers) along Granite Way. 18 miles in total. I sent an email to book 2 e-bikes and 2 mountain bikes in advance of our holiday and Andrew replied immediately. We were not required to pay a deposit. All 4 bikes were in excellent condition and we were provided with helmets, locks and bike kit. Sadie was very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely use Devon Cycle Hire again if in the same area. Highly recommend.

We hired 3 bikes and a dog trailer. I called ahead to reserve the bikes and the lady was really helpful on the phone. When we arrived she was so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The bikes were in excellent condition and were very comfortable, which is unusual for hired bikes. The trail was right next to where we picked up the bikes and the trail was fairly flat. I would definitely recommend using this cycle hire company I know we will when we return to Devon.

We hired four bikes which we booked in advance, the communication and booking was easy. The staff were all friendly and very helpful
The bikes were all of a high standard , the granite way is a great bike trail for a family day out.

Very friendly, helpful people! We are occasional cyclists, this was a perfect day out. Situated halfway along the Granite Trail so you can do the whole thing or just half.

I will certainly revisit this little gem. Great cycling with beautiful views and interesting viaducts. Lots of railway history to see. The bikes are first class as is the welcoming service. Very nice little cafe too with excellent coffee. Taking my wife next time- she'll love it.

We just stopped here for coffee on our way through the cycle path. My friend reckoned it was the best coffee she'd ever had so we visited twice. Lovely people running this place and very friendly.

Phoned up on a busy Saturday morning ( 20 bikes booked for group ) and the owners accommodated us with 2 great bikes. Booked for the day and spent a great day with fantastic views. Old church in lydford a must see , planned to stop at bearslake inn for lunch...DO NOT DO THIS , TOTAL IGNORANT PUB , went to highway man instead ,DO THIS . Owners of cycles very friendly and knowledgeable of granite way. Could have stayed talking to them longer but very busy . Highly recommend doing granite way with Devon cycle hire bikes.

My wife and I hired bikes whilst visiting the area. It was a simple process. Bikes were great and the staff were very welcoming and very helpful.

We cycled along the Granite way. Stunning views of the area and a couple of places we could stop for sight seeing and to get some food also.
