Carriage Tours of Hylands Park

Private Carriage Tours of Hylands Park

We are often asked if people can hire a Horse and Carriage privately at Hylands, for a special family event, birthday, romantic treat or even for those with limited mobility who want to see the Estate in all it's glory.    Over the years we've worked out a route that takes in some of the best bits of the Park, and have learned a bit of a plotted history and some interesting tales, and so we thought we'd try and share this a little more.

We've partnered up with the team at Hylands House to offer a very limited number of Tours each month to tie-in with the monthly Farmers Markets and Open House, to give you the opportunity to spend a very special day here at Hylands.  

 

We will take youand your family or friends on a private tour of Hylands Park for approximately 45-60 minutes with one of our Rare-Breed Suffolk Punch or Shire horses in our luxurious 6-8 seater wagon.  The carriage sits 6 adults comfortably, or 4 adults and 4 children.    On your ride we will tell you as much as we can about the Estate, it's History, current use and our horses and their work.  For the remainder of the day you can enjoy the Market, tour Hyalnds House, visit the Stables Artists, grab a coffee at one of the Estates Cafe's or Afteroon Tea in the House, and maybe a walk in the Pleasure Gardens or one of the Parks woodlands.

On each date we will offer just 4 tours at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm and 3.30pm.   Each tour costs £120, which if you fill the carriage that works out at just £15-20 per person - so why not treat your family or friends to an exclusive trip out that they are sure to remember for a long time!  Parking Charges for the day will be included free with your booking - please give Car Registration details where possible on your booking form.  Dates will be released about a month before each event, so do check back or follow our Facebook Page for updates.
