Group of cyclists.

Walking & Cycling

A maze of footpaths surrounds the village, with views of the scenic Cherwell valley including the Oxfordshire Way and Oxford Canal. Tackley has its own nature reserve and heath. Arrangements can be made for walkers’ luggage to be ferried to the next overnight stop. Dogs welcome by prior arrangement.


We are approximately one-and-a-half miles from Sustrans National Cycle Route 5, and three miles from route 51. A link route runs past the door.

Off-road options include a maze of local bridleways and tracks, and the canal towpath between Oxford and Banbury.

We offer secure bicycle storage.

Tackley Wheelers

This is a fun cycling group that meets Wednesday evenings in summer and some Sunday mornings in winter.
