Biking as a family can be lots of fun.
When you stay at the 19th acre you'll have the perfect opportunity to test the trails cross county when you visit Elm Farm which is situated on the Portreath to Devoran Bike trail. Elm Farm is less than three miles from the 19th Acre by car with plenty of parking. Elm Fam is well stocked with bikes for hire that suit everybody's ability for only £15 an outing. Accessories include trailers that can be used to transport the younger 'Bradley Wiggins' of the family so that no one need miss out.
When you rent a bike you'll have a number of trails to choose from. Go north for a quick jaunt to Portreath. This is great for the young family who wish to enjoy a quick couple of hours on a ride together. For the teenage family, take the trail to Devoran on the south coast and you can legitimately claim you've cycled across Cornwall. For the casual riders you'll enjoy a three to four hour round trip simply by going as far as the Bissoe Bike Park before returning back up the trail. If you've more time on your hands then go all the way to Devoran and make a full day trip of the outing. Whichever route you choose, then the more adventurous among you will be able to take off on on the tributary paths to visit the old mining quarries where you can jump bikes and explore en route. Rest assured, while those options exist, this is a safe and fun day out for everyone.
At the end of the day you'll be happy to know that it's just a short trip back to your Holiday Cottage before freshening up and taking off for a nice family meal out. There's lots of nearby dining options to choose from: Check out Taste in St Agnes, the Old School Bar and Kitchen in Mount Hawke, the new Chiquitos in nearby Truro, The Victory Inn next door or, if you're feeling a little laid back use your fully equipped Holiday Cottage while the kids use the wireless service in the cottage to watch the Go Pro footage of the day they've uploaded to the Cloud.
Whatever you choose to do you'll discover a great family day out.
