Day Treks

Walk with a traditional lakeland pack pony

From our base at the foot of Windermere we take families and groups on a one day adventure with our native Fell ponies, following part of an old pack horse route through meadows, woods and fell.

Prices start from £250 for a family of 4 including picnic lunch (then £50 per child and £75 an adult thereafter)

What you need to bring

This is an all weather day out so you will need

  • Warm clothing (layers work well)

  • A waterproof Jacket

  • Sturdy footwear (no sandals please, you will know about it if a horse accidentally steps on your foot)

  • A sense of adventure

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!
