Exploring the Lake District on horseback

The Lake District can be enjoyed in a number of ways, with hiking and cycling among the most popular Activities At The Lake District for visitors who are keen to escape their hectic lifestyles and to explore the region’s stunning landscapes at their leisure. For an unforgettable experience that will afford you views of Lakeland that cannot be enjoyed from elsewhere, cycle from your B and B in Windermere to one of the nearby riding stables, from where the whole family can participate in a guided trek for an hour, a half day or a even whole day!

Even if you have no previous riding experience, you can still enjoy a mesmerising tour along some of the Lake District’s finest bridleways from where you will have the opportunity to absorb the breath-taking scenery at a gentle pace. Children can ride too, making a pony trek a worthwhile family activity. So get on your Horse Riding Gear and explore the Lake District on horse back!

The Lake District’s bridleway network is one of the most comprehensive in the UK, making it the ideal way to combine a love of riding, or a desire to fulfil a lifetime ambition to ride, with a rural adventure to soak up Lakeland’s stunning landscapes. Away from the more popular tourist locations, you can enjoy the natural stillness and timeless beauty of the region. For example, a gentle ride through nearby Limefitt Park will afford some unforgettable views of the Troutbeck Valley, from where you can pause to take some photographs to show your family when you arrive home. Alternatively, a longer ride will take you through picturesque country villages where chocolate box cottages adorned with colourful hanging baskets line the streets.
