Guests are welcome to bring their bikes. Storage can be arranged.
For the equestrians amongst you, we can during the summer months accommodate you and your horse on a grazing only basis. There is trailer/horsebox parking. We have plenty of riding close by through the forestry and many bridleways. Or if preferred there are riding schools not too far away for you to book a lesson or hack out.
