Walking

Get ready to ramble…..fresh air and brisk walk anyone? We have some lovely walks close by – across to Geddington or over to Fermyn Woods Country Park including the Lyveden Way, Northamptonshire’s seventh long distance path which takes in the beautiful Lyveden New Bield, and Wadenhoe village, looping back to the starting point. You are welcome to borrow a walking map from us (although these days, all you really need is the  ……app which is fantastic for guiding you along the right path).

 

Cycling

If you wish to bring your bike, we are happy to store your bikes safely for you.  We have some lovely country parks nearby – Fineshade Woods, Stanwick Lakes, East Carlton Country Park, Barnwell Country Park, Pitsford Reservoir, Grafham Water and Rutland Water

offer some fabulous walking and cycling routes.

 

Llama walking

For something more unusual, how about taking a llama for a stroll? Just at the top of our road, we have the wonderful Llama Experience, Brigstock where you get to groom and walk your own llama followed by fine food & drink relaxing in the Llama Lounge

 

Urban Sports

We have Adrenaline Alley, Europe’s largest Urban Sports Venue, only 10 minutes up the road for those guests who fancy some radical fun on boards, scooters or bikes!

Welland Gliding Club (2.5 miles)

Or if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you might like to try a spot of gliding! located midway between the sleepy market town of Oundle and the industrial town of Corby and close to the National Trust Property of Lyveden New Bield. It is surrounded by beautiful gently rolling countryside, ideal for thermal soaring.

East Midlands International Swimming Pool (5.4 miles)

Includes a 50m 8 lane Main Pool with spectator area, Learner Pool,

fun pool with Pirate ship (for under 8’s), 63m Aquatube body ride and diving boards.

Horse Riding

It is said that the East Midlands has some of the best riding countryside in Europe. We have many riding schools in the village - private stables as well as famous horse trials such as the Rockingham International Horse Trials and Burghley Horse Trials.

 

Elinor Trout Fishery (6.7 miles)
Elinor Trout Fishery is Northamptonshire's premier medium-sized trout fishery. There are 50 acres of spring-fed, gin-clear limestone water. Because of the clear alkaline water, natural food is in abundance and the trout are fat and healthy!
