Many optional, additional services are available, from horse drawn carriage rides into the local village to collect the croissants to prepared evening meals. Off road riding can be organised from the cottage on calm and well trained ponies and there is the opportunity to spend a day trekking with either lunch at a local restaurant or a picnic set up in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
