If challenges are your thing, then you're in the right place - the cottage is close to the North Pennines which includes some of the highest road climbs in England,  Killhope Cross and nearby Harthope Moss, both reaching 627m; you can find out about them here.

Hamsterley Forest is 7 miles from the cottage with extensive forest cycle trails, great for mountain bikers. 

There's a useful resource for cyclists to find suitable routes on the This is Durham website.

The cottage has a cycle-friendly lockable outhouse and a yard where you can hose down and clean your bike.
