The farm ride was the first facility that we added to our portfolio.

The route depends on the time of year and what’s on so it constantly evolves according to the season giving you a different experience as you meander around the farm. The route in summer tends to hug the farm boundaries so you’ll find yourself adjacent to grass fields an on tracks in the shadow of Primrose Hill Woods which is part of Delamere Forest.

The route is about 6.5 miles long and takes about an hour and half depending on your appetite to jump the optional fences that are out there and your normal travelling speed. The route is changed regularly so please don’t assume the route will be same and please do not open any gates you find that are closed, these may be keeping the cattle where they are supposed to be.

The course is marked so you shouldn’t get lost!

The route offers stunning views of Cheshire’s countryside and there can be no place better on a sunny day.

The water complex that we use for BE horse trials is normally part of the farm ride when the courses aren’t in use, to check the current status of the water complex please click on the facilities status button at the top of page.

There are always natural hazards along the way such as mole hills, rabbit burrows, branches, stones and cattle so please keep an eye out for these as they may appear overnight, there are also unnatural hazards such as helium balloons  which can drift onto the farm in wind from parties, please let us know if you see any hazards by reporting them to the office, if you can use a pin drop or what3words we can identify where you’ve found them and resolve any issues.

Please call the office to make a booking. We do not take bookings via the website, email, facebook or any other social media route.
