The perfect gift for adventurous foodies!

Nestling in the heart of the South Downs National Park, The Wiston Estate covers 6,000 acres of rolling downland and forest. Under careful stewardship, this ancient land supports wildlife, farming, winemaking and, of course, plenty of enjoyment for walkers and off-road cyclists. The estate’s own ‘Chalk’ restaurant offers a sophisticated venue where you can enjoy seasonal produce and local wines, making it a perfect start and finish point for a private guided off-road ride that explores the best of the South Downs. We can arrange hire of high-quality mountain bikes – either electric or conventional. Meet your Marmalade guide at Chalk, or ask us to arrange transport from a nearby rail station or hotel.

This unique experience includes the following:

  • A three hour tailored mountain bike ride of the Wiston Estate with one of our professional and local guides
  • An exquisite two-course lunch at the Chalk restaurant. Why not check out their sample menu which celebrates Sussex’s seasonal produce from the heart of the South Downs
