With so much lovely countryside around Botley Hill Farmhouse, many of our customers want to explore by bike. The Farmhouse and the Sheep Shed have become well-known as popular stops for cyclists and cycling clubs from all over the South East, and we're always delighted to welcome you.
As well as being a great place to stop for a refreshment break with fabulous views over the North Downs, Botley Hill Farmhouse has plenty more to offer cyclists. We sell energy gels from the Sheep Shed tea rooms that you can take away to keep you going on longer rides, and we're happy to refill water bottles too. If you've suffered a puncture, we can help you out with a puncture repair kit. And don't worry about securing your bike while you take a break - we can lend you a bike lock too!
If you're planning to eat with us - please do book in advance to be sure of a table.
