In the 1990's, the wood was developed further to include the very popular sport of Paintballing. This operation is now run by a national company called Paintball Park, which this year includes the super airball game with inflatable barricades.
In 2003, after many suggestions we decided to make my 200 acre estate into an Equestrian Centre and a well known local gentlemen called Maurice Evans and his team, have built 4 Cross Country Courses, starting with a “diddy” course at 18" then 2' 3", 2' 9" and 3' 6", the latter of which was opened on 1st May. In addition, we have built over the last few years 3 dressage arenas, together with 2 more areas for our show and working hunter jumps.
We have stables available for upto 30 horses and ponies, a number of these stables are still available. All liveries have the full use of all our facilities, for more information visit our livery page.
All the above facilities are available to hire, and are also available on our fortnightly open mornings from 10am to 12noon, at reduced rates.
We look forward to hearing from you, call us on 01562 701201, 07788 407409 or 07990 597330 or visit our contact page.
