Adventure Break in the unspoilt countryside of Rutland

Come and explore the beautiful countryside of rural Rutland by bike and by horse.  Rutland Water is one of the largest man made reservoirs in Europe and is an area of outstanding natural beauty.  The cycle track goes the whole way round the reservoir, which including a pretty peninsula, is a total of 23 miles, or without the peninsula, 17 miles.  There are several cafes and pubs along the route and plenty of places to stop and admire the view. The track meanders through wooded and scenic areas along the shores of the reservoir.  Rutland Water cycle hire is about a 10 minute drive from The Tithe Barn, and this professional outlet provides great quality equipment and excellent back up.

Stretton Riding stables have been established for many years and has an excellent range of good quality horses and ponies to suit all levels of riders, from complete beginners to the very experienced.   What better way to view some of the rolling countryside in Rutland than from horseback?  This experience is suitable for any level of rider; the ride and the horses will be chosen to match your level of experience.
