It looks like an uncertain summer for everyone...

This week I write from the Eurostar on a final trip to visit my sister as she bids adieu to the bountiful bakeries of France. We have had a vast amount of work over the last few weeks to ensure this season is jammed full with...

Toasty Toes

November 24, 2019

Rounding Up the 2019 Season What a season 2019 we’ve had! I am back in the UK after the quickest of all quick breaks in St. Lucia. It was wonderfully warm and the fruit was divine – I shall be a convert to banana ketchup from this day forward ? This year we managed a record 13 tours; over 100...

Half-Way Through

July 28, 2019

What a Scorcher! Can you believe we are half-way through this season already? The past few weeks have been an action-packed blur. We’ve had the ultimate, zany combination of kayaking down the River Wye, chasing off-road buggies across Wiltshire, frolicking with our four-legged friends in Berkshire, stock-piling fantastic wines in Oxfordshire and stepping back in time to discover 300million year...

Bring It!

The sun is here in full glory! Summer is definitely here and our four-legged friends at the Little Hidden Farm kicked-off the 2019 season for us in style.

2018 End of Season Wrap Up

December 10, 2018

What an incredible season 2018. You all know I’m a very big fan of Mendip (did I mention I’m going to retire there with a goat?), but this year I fell for those incredible rolling Quantock hills. I love the heather and gorse; all the pinks and yellows are so characteristic of the Quantock landscape. Pony-Trekking was a big favourite...

How Environmentally Friendly is your Outdoor Gear?

June 16, 2018

Did you know that our outdoor clothing is polluting the environment? Jackets, backpacks, sleeping bags, tents… A lot of technical gear is treated with hazardous chemicals to keep us warm and dry.   It’s the PFCs (perfluorinated chemicals) which are so good at repelling water. Unfortunately, they’re not good at being broken down by natural processes. In fact, they persist...

And it feels great! But we know that giving back to the local community feels even better. #AdventureForAll GoTread promotes #AdventureForAll by giving a little...
