Off Roading (Landrover Discovery)

It may have a reputation as a “boys” activity but the ladies love it too!!  You can learn to drive our farm quad bikes (we’ve been teaching guests for 20 years), try using a tractor or even take a 4×4 vehicle (ours or yours?) into the mud and across some tricky terrain, or just around the farm.

Making a splashoff roading

4×4 all Terrain Driving Skills Sessions. You get to drive yourself although we will give instruction and demonstrations.  we MUST accompany you, so whilst you can use your own 4×4 you can only take it off our farm roads at Kirkwood with us in attendance.  We will cover – Hills …at angles, Gullies/ditches /fords, Wet & muddy terrain, When to use 4 wheel drive & “low ratio”, Towing trailers and much more.  A brilliant way for under 17s to learn to drive a car – out in the middle of a dry and flat field.

Ours is a basic course, not an advanced course.  Its more aimed at serious and safe entertainment than education, although you should learn lots while having some real fun.

While our quads and tractor driving are restricted with age (for insurance and safety reasons), we can drive everyone who wants to around the fields in the back of our Discovery.

You’ll get a feel of how a real farm works and see farm animals – we may even ask you to help us move stock. You can enjoy views of the countryside that you wouldn’t normally see and this is a real hands-on farm experience.

Places are strictly limited, so you’ll need to book your place once you arrive.  You’ll find a booking form in your cottage, so fill it in and drop it in at the office. You might get dirty during offroading, especially if it’s been raining, so wear clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting a bit muddy.
