One day family trek with a pack pony

From our base at the foot of Windermere we take family groups on a one day adventure following an old pack horse route.

Prices start from £250 for a family of 4 including hot lunch.


Making friends

What we’ll do

Start the day meeting the herd and making friends with your pack pony (in the winter you can help feed the ponies). Then we load the pony with everything we need to cook lunch on an open fire. Suitable for families, the walk is about 4 miles round trip back to our base.

What you need to bring

This is an all weather day out so you will need

  • Warm clothing (layers work well)

  • A waterproof and windproof 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!
