    1. Day 1 Arrival

      Arrive and settle into your accommodation, a magnificent 17th century Lakeland farmhouse situated adjacent to the riding stables, providing the perfect holiday setting. The yard too is full of character, having a real Victorian feel to it with a court yard of cobbles, Victorian stalls and a gin house.  If you like architecturally beautiful properties then this is for you!  If time permits, we can organise a ride for you today, alternatively riding will commence tomorrow. Collection from Grange-over-Sands railway station is available. Tonight, you can either visit one of the local villages for dinner just a few miles drive away or you may choose to enjoy dinner in the farmhouse (booked locally).

    2. Day 2 Trekking

      This morning the choice is yours – we can offer lessons for less experienced riders, half day rides, or full day rides including lunch. The hacking takes place in no less than 2500 acres of private estate land which comprises of miles of secluded woodland tracks (where we often come across deer and other woodland wild life). A little hack away is what is locally known as the noddle the most amazing view point offering excellent views of South Lakeland and Morecambe Bay.  There is nothing quite like experiencing the Lake District from horse back. All the treks are supervised by an experienced and qualified guide and are suitable for all levels of rider. Lead rein treks are available for younger, less experienced riders.

    3. Day 3 Explore the Lake District

      Today you can choose how long you would like to ride for again. There is plenty to do for non-riders including fishing, cycling and walking.

For non riders you can enjoy the spectacular scenery from a bicycle or for walkers trekking in the hills is an experience you won’t forget!

    Have just returned from the most fabulous riding break in the Lake District. The B&B and stable owners were the most perfect hosts and made me, as a solo traveller, feel incredible welcome. The horses were great and really helped me overcome my confidence issues. I enjoyed some private lessons with Deana and some hacks into the countryside. I can't wait to re-visit soon, thanks so much!

    We booked the weekend at Witherslack Hall during a two-week vacation to the UK. It was utterly perfect. Deana was wonderfully accommodating even when we were an hour late to arrive. The house is charming and breakfast was delicious. The best part was the utmost care they give to their horses. It's clear they care about their (and your) safety. If I am ever in the UK again, I will definitely be back!
