Hello all,

We are launching a new series of one day tours…

As lockdown restrictions are now easing in England I feel it is appropriate to start planning for the future.

We will look to start small and local with an aim to restart with a series of 5 single day trips in Central and Southern England

New Dates as follows

Cotswolds        Saturday 27/06/2020
Dorset              Saturday 04/07/2020
Salisbury Plain Saturday 11/07/2020
East Devon       Saturday 18/07/2020
Ridgeway         Saturday  25/07/2020


Further trips will be announced soon, depending on the popularity of these trips, restrictions allowing.

At this present time we do not want to over-commit to a schedule we can’t deliver on…

Once campsites reopen we will look at longer weekend and 4 day trips.

Due to group size restrictions of 6 people meeting up outside, initial trips will be charged per person with a max group size of 5 people and/or vehicle per trip plus the guide. This will be relaxed back to 5 vehicles (irrespective of passengers) as soon as practicable possible. This does mean if you have 2 people in a vehicle you will pay double etc.


Episode 5 of the Countryfile Autumn Diaries contains a piece on 4×4 usage in the Lake District National Park and rather unsurprisingly its bias doesn’t genuinely reflect the true situation.

Please watch between 8 mins and 17 minutes

Listen carefully to what they say and note there is no support from our side of the argument. 2 antis and one sit on the fence. Not very balanced…


In fact its worse than that as its a very poor piece of journalism that perpetuates the lies and untruths made up by the anti-vehicle lobby.

Please lodge your complaints about the programme at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/contact/complaints

You can also email the show directly to complain to the production team countryfile@bbc.co.uk

Thank you.

Spotted this on our recent trip in Morocco, a rare Houbara Bustard.

As we like to claim, our trips are intended as an off-road 4×4 adventure, not cultural tours, but it doesn’t meant you wont see or experience many interesting things…..
