Running, riding and cycling

Cycling

The Ridgeway, that runs through the farm, is the perfect trail to take you miles without touching a road. For a circular route, drop down onto the B4000 to return from White Horse Hill or beyond, along a wonderfully wiggly and scenic route.

Horse Riding

We will continue to make the farm ever more riding friendly, with easy to open gates, and even some small jumps here and there. Let us know if you want to bring your horse, and we will do our best to accommodate. We should be better set up for this next year, if there seems to be demand.

Check out the Visit Wiltshire website for more information about riding in Wiltshire.

Running

We will be marking up a 10k route over the downs, and a half marathon too for those with energy to spare. The perfect way to start your weekend, and work up an appetite.

The Ridgeway Revenge starts from fields on the farm. Find out more about the half marathon and 10K trail run.

We’re now combining  everything—the pigs, the cows and calves, the landscapes, the wildlife—deer, owls, badgers, flora and fauna generally, although not all of it appears on cue.  Our colleague James Andrews, expert at wildlife photography among other skills, will lead the ‘Safari’ tours, in the red land rover
