WHY WE LOVE BISHOPS LYDEARD: “As keen mountain bikers, we love hopping on our bikes and heading up to Seven Sisters and out across the Quantocks for a ride, taking in the fresh air, breath-taking views and calling in for a pint or 2 (or more!) at the Rising sun at West Bagborough on our way back home.”
