Thetford Forest Holiday (Members Only) Little Lodge,Santon Downham, Brandon, Suffolk, IP27 0TX. 21/04/2017


Friday 21st April - Monday 24th April 2017

This is our very popular Thetford Holiday weekend where we stay at Little Lodge in the centre of Thetford Forest and ride out each day on the lovely sandy grassy tracks between the trees. On the Sunday there is even a chance to drive the 1hr 15 min north to ride on the very beautiful Holkham beach.

The cost is approx £175 for the three nights, including accommodation for yourself and your horse.

Sorry this is now full but look out for our holiday next year. Places are always offered on a first come first served basis but to give a chance to as many of our riders as possible we will give priority to members who have never been on holiday with us before.
