Whether you are looking for a day out with your horse or a longer break there is so much to do at Bucklebury.

Our camps are becoming very popular, either for Birthday Parties or just an excused for a mini break with family and friends.  Riding Clubs bringing their own Instructors, or Pony Clubs for Summer Camps and Rallies…..Or bring a picnic and just come for the day!!

Many of our visitors have bought their partners and children along too, plus bikes! Clay pigeon shooting can now also be arranged and Bucklebury Farm Park is very close by, across a field! One group of campers went for an afternoon learning how to paddle board at nearby Theale. 

Hacking

Bucklebury has miles of Bridle paths and Byways   One of our mapped rides is 10 miles all off road except for 500 yards on a very quiet road. Hack straight from the farm onto Bucklebury Common or go another direction into Yattendon Woods. These rides can lead you to West Berkshire Brewery, or several of the local pubs that are very ‘horse friendly’.

Visitors Stables

Situated just beside the Club Room and the camping field are 15 10’ x 12’ wooden stables are kept for the exclusive us of visitors.   When you arrive, your stable will be ready for you with a fresh straw bed. 3 stables have rubber matting, so we can accommodate those who like to bring their own shavings. All we ask is, that on departure, you leave the stables clean and swept out. The stables are disinfected after each use.
