Accommodation

Yes, there are sockets and electric lighting in each cabin and lodge. We also provide electric blankets in the lodges and in the cabins in the winter months.

Yes, we allow up to two well behaved dogs in each cabin or lodge. We provide beds, treats, towels, food bowls and a dog shower as well as a handy information pack with all of the information you could possibly need on the local area. We like their stay to be just as comfortable as yours…

You can stay with us from two to seven nights. Our change over days are Mondays, Fridays and Wednesdays (although in peak seasons we tend to stick to Mondays and Fridays).

We supply all bedding, towels, loo roll and hand soaps as well as all the equipment you will need to self-cater, such as pots, pans, utensils, crockery, cutlery and condiments. We also provide a welcome food pack containing local bread, jam, free range eggs, butter, milk and not to forget, delicious home-made brownies. 

Yes, the tap water is perfectly drinkable!

No, the only place that guests can stay on site is in the cabins and lodges

Our canvas lodges sleep six (plus one baby in a travel cot) in two king size beds and two single beds. Our pioneer cabins sleep four in one king size bed and two occasional bunks that sleep people up to 6ft tall. Please note that when the bunks are up, there is limited floor space and so it is a bit of a squeeze for four adults.

Yes, you may have visitors during your stay, however we have a limit of two visitors per cabin/lodge and they may only stay overnight if there is a spare bed. If you wish to have visitors, we must have their details and be aware of when they will be visiting in advance for safety reasons.

We do not allow stag parties and any hen parties must contact us before booking.

No, guests may not sleep on the floor for safety reasons.

Riding and Horses

The maximum weight for riding is 15 stone due to the Western saddles weighing an extra couple of stone themselves.

The minimum height is 1.4m and over to ride independently in the arena. Smaller children can still ride but will use buddy stirrups and be lead by a trainer. For trail riding, riders must be at least 5ft tall. 

Children must be at least 5ft tall and competent riders to go on one of our two-hour trail rides. The hill is steep and so they must be secure in the saddle. We also offer mini trail rides through the base of the forest for younger guests or people who are not competent enough to do a longer ride.

We offer both half an hour and hour-long riding lessons which can be adapted for children and families. We can create a trail obstacle course in the arena for children to work round and learn the basics of Western riding. We also offer mini trail rides through the base of the forest which are ideal for younger riders. Through the school holidays, we also offer a morning children’s club focused on learning to look after Lottie, our Shetland pony and the other small animals.

Riders must be able to ride independently at walk and jog and be happy to ride up and down hill and in open spaces. If you aren’t sure, we would recommend having a lesson with us first so that you are confident when you go out. All new riders are assessed in the arena before the rides depart.

One hour group lessons are £45 per person, 45 minute private lessons are £58 per person. Two-hour group trail rides are £85per person, two-hour private trail rides are £150 for one person and £95 per person for two people.

We ride on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. We start at 9:30am and riding finishes at 4pm.

The maximum number of riders in a lesson or on a trail ride is four people. However, we will make exceptions for family and group bookings so please contact us for more information.
