Fantastic place & lovely staff that couldn’t do enough to help make my child's 5th birthday & first horse riding experience perfect. We booked again straight away as we enjoyed it so much. 

Would highly recommend kids loved every minute of their trek even though we picked the worst day weather wise to come. We will definitely be back, think the kids are aiming for a full collection of key rings!
