Livery stables are available at the nearby Ruskill Bank Farm, 2 miles from the hotel. A UK Chaser Course is also on site. Livery rates are approximately £10 per day per horse. Please book livery in advance, prior to your stay.
We are usually able to arrange hirelings for guests to ride the UK Chaser Course, at an approximate cost of £40 per day, but please bear in mind that hirelings are not always available during the hunting season.
If you require a hireling, please arrange this with reception before your stay, giving them as much notice as possible.

Thank goodness the sun has now come out and we seem to have finally put winter behind us! The Parkland has burst into bloom with clouds of blossom and a colourful carpet of daffodils and bluebells around the trees.
The Walled Garden is also getting going, with bright tulips swaying in the breeze and home grown asparagus bursting forth. Asparagus is at its most delicious when eaten closest to home, so dishes featuring home-grown asparagus are now on all our menus, including the bar and lounge. The garden furniture is out and soon it will be time for afternoon teas on the lawn and evening drinks on the terrace at sunset. English summertime at it’s best.
