Day One:

Arrive today and settle into your accommodation. Our pretty self-catering cottages are located in the heart of Tarvin village. The cottages are renovated servants quarters that formed part of the estate of a village squire in the 1700s. Tarvin has a wide variety of shops including a Co op open untill 10pm, fish and chip shop, greengrocers, cafe, restaurant and a traditional pub serving home-cooked meals. If time permits we can organise a ride for you today or if not riding will start tomorrow.

Day Two:

Today you will take the short drive to the riding stables for your introductory lesson. After a short assessment you will be allocated a horse suitable for your size and experience and your journey of discovery will begin. Lunch may be taken in the form of a bar snack at the adjacent hotel or in a local pub just minutes away.

This afternoon you will be enjoying a picturesque hack along bridleways and quiet country lanes. This evening you can choose from a range of dining experiences in Tarvin, Kelsall, Tarporley or Chester.

Day Three:

Today you will be enjoying the same riding plan as yesterday with a lesson followed by a hack through beautiful woodland and along sandy tracks.

For non-riders wanting to come along, the historic city of Chester is only a 15 minute drive; its unique black and white Tudor-style shopping rows draw visitors from around the globe. Beeston Castle is a 10 minute drive and at its summit the spectacular views spans across 5 counties. Or the pretty village of Tarporley is only a 5 minutes drive away; here you can enjoy a coffee in the Old Fire Station Chocolate Shop.
