Lakes Trip 2017

Lakes Trip 2017

We had such a great time in Lake District last year with Tom Hutton as our guide that we are doing it again.

9-11 June  2016

This promises to be another special weekend, with 2 days guiding from one of the country’s most sought-after guides (who also happens to have written a Lakes guidebook!), and some top-notch cuisine provided by a leading Liverpool chef.

What’s included?

  • 2 full day’s guided riding (optional MB Swindon special: Friday afternoon guided warm-up for those that travel Friday lunch time)
  • Dinner Friday and Saturday (hopefully a barbeque saturday), breakfast Saturday and Sunday and packed lunches
  • 2 night’s accommodation in a clean and comfortable private hostel
  • Mini-bus and trailer transport for Sunday’s mountain ride.

*the only thing not included is bedding and towels. Please bring sleeping bag and/or duvet, pillows and a towel.


The riding can be tailored a little to suit the group but won’t be suitable for beginners really. Anybody who’s really comfortable on a trail centre Red will cope admirably – though there will be the odd Black section for sure.

Fitness-wise, we’ll be be looking at biggish days – at least 5-6 hours – with plenty of ups and downs.

Loose plan

Two big days in the saddle on Saturday and Sunday.  Exact route will be weather and conditions dependent.


All-in price £230 per person

We only have eight places on this trip available.  To reserve your place please pay £20 to MBSwindon via bank transfer to MBSwindon’s bank account with the reference ‘Lakes June 2017’ to help us monitor payments.  Bank account details can be found on our members page.
