Trails Tea Party is for you if you like to cycle at a leisurely pace through the glorious Peak District countryside. You’ll journey on our fine vintage bikes along the Tissington Trail, the track bed of the former Buxton to Ashbourne railway line – pedalling past historic Hartington signal box on your way. You will travel along some bygone lanes and bridleways of the Peak District National Park, taking your time to enjoy the spectacular scenery and exceptional views. You’ll stop for a traditional afternoon tea in the picturesque village of Hartington – a Peak District gem – famous for its cheese shop, village green and pond. You will return through scenic Long Dale, a typical dry limestone valley of the White Peak. This most delightful trip is the perfect introduction to vintage cycling.
