Adventure Highlights

From our base at the foot of Windermere, we can take family groups on a one day adventure following an old packhorse route. You'll start the day by meeting the herd of The Hades Hill Fell Ponies and making friends with your own pack pony! We'll load them up with our gear for the day, don't worry, it's what they're born to do! We'll head off up an old trek trail, and cook lunch over an open fire. After a hearty lunch, we'll head back to Windermere. The route is about 4 miles and is suitable for the whole family! If you don't see the date you want - get in touch and we'll do our best to accommodate you!

"It was a brilliant and unique experience with a hot cooked lunch out by a lake! The walking was challenging enough for the adults, but easy enough for the kids and having the horse along with us carrying all sorts of luxuries was amazing. Highly recommended day! — Richard Berry
