Other Activities

Pony trekking

The North Pennines is scattered with bridleways that criss-cross the fells and wind alongside rivers and streams. A number of groups include Pony Trekking in their programme and this is provided by Sinderhope Pony Trekking Centre. The centre is run very much on the same family values as ourselves and provides a safe and enjoyable experience. Please call us to discuss your requirements.

Extra Curricular Activities and Excursions

Hadrian’s Wall

The Roman forts of Birdoswald, Housesteads and Gilsland are just 45 minutes away on Hadrian's Wall. Fascinating educational visitor centres are dotted along the entire route of the wall. A footpath runs from Bowness on Solway to Wallsend and short stretches of the walk close to the visitor centres provide ample opportunity to imagine what life must have been like for a Roman soldier in such a bleak outpost.
