Travel writer Matt Carrol who wrote about Dannah in an Observer article back in 2009 has featured Dannah as a place to stay as well as the start and finnish point for one of his 60 stunning cycle rides in his new Escape Routes guide for cyclists.
"Each ride comes with a full description of the journey, plus plenty of 'stop and see' options: en route and in the surrounding area. Beautiful hand- drawn mapsmark out the routes and step-by-step directions will guide you all the way round. And when you're ready to give your legs a rest, chose any of the exceptional places to stop and eat, drink, or sleep."
The ride from Dannah is a 20 mile round trip around the peaks taking in Alport Heights, Black Rocks the High peak trail and of course Carsington Water.
