The Great Outdoors

Horse Riding in Kent and Sussex

Great Outdoors

Experience the beautiful Kent and Sussex countryside up close and indulge your passion for the great outdoors. In the Garden of England it’s easy – most of the area falls within the High Weald AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and North Downs AONB, including the open heathlands of Ashdown Forest, providing stunning backdrops for a variety of activities. The area lends itself naturally to outdoor activities including watersports, climbing, horse riding, fishing, mountain biking, cycling, walking – and even zip wires at two Go Ape Kent locations!

Test your skills and endurance at mountain biking, or take the family cycling on one of the family-friendly cycling tracks at Bedgebury Forest. Take to the saddle at Bedgebury Park Equestrian Centre and at Coldblow Equestrian Centre, or select from a huge number of footpaths and waymarked paths which criss-cross Kent and Sussex and explore the countryside at a gentler pace. Or how about a peaceful meander along the River Medway on the Allington Belle Paddle Boat? Surely the most relaxing way to get out and about.
