Fullers Hill Cottages are perfectly situated for anyone wishing to explore the Cambridgeshire/ Bedfordshire countryside on foot, mountain bike or horseback.
Located a few hundred yards from an extensive network of public bridleways and footpaths, the whole family can enjoy off-road circular routes ranging from just 2-3 miles to day long excursions of 15 to 20 miles, through open countryside.
Historic Hayley, Gamlingay and Gransden Woods are all on the doorstep and can be accessed by walkers. These ancient deciduous woodlands are important botanical sites, supporting a wide range of native plants and wildlife, including spectacular displays of bluebells in Spring, as well as primroses, cowslips, oxslips, and spotted orchids.
BRING YOUR HORSE ON A MINI-BREAK!
Here at Fullers Hill Farm we can offer accommodation for yourself and your horse or pony. If you suffer at home from a lack of safe, off road riding, then why not bring your horse to Little Gransden and enjoy the wonderful hacking in the area, where you will be spoilt for choice with the variety of routes in the vicinity of Little and Great Gransden, Hatley and Croydon. The well maintained bridleways are clearly marked and provide excellent hacking through picturesque scenery, with plenty of opportunities for a good gallop, and barely a road in sight!
Leaving the yard, you will almost immediately have access to a grassy farm track which takes you to the beginning of the bridleway network. From here you can ride up to the Hatley estate and on towards Tadlow and Wrestlingworth. A circular route will take you eastwards along the ancient Clopton Way and back to East Hatley, or if you wish to venture further afield then you can continue to Croydon and Hatley Wilds, then by crossing the B1198 reach the villages of Kingston and Eversden. A 20 or even 30 mile route is possible with very little roadwork involved. Closer to home, a ride taking in Hatley St George, East Hatley and edging historic Hayley wood will take approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours depending on your chosen pace!
Stabling can be provided and possible turnout if required, just let us know what you need and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Another local attraction is National Trust owned Wimpole Hall. Roughly 15 minutes away by road, it is possible to obtain a permit to ride on specific tracks within its beautiful estate. The house, gardens and Home Farm are also open to visitors.
