The Paddocks has come about due to Covid-19, initially for the 2020 season but it now looks likely to be for part of the 2021 season at least. The Filly & Fox horse-box bar will be resident at The Picnic & Party Paddocks.
Wanna know more about The Paddocks?
We took the beloved horse box to be converted in November 2019. At the time we said there was no rush, we just needed it back in March/April 2020.... big mistake! Or was it, the Covid pandemic made us think a little 'outside the box' if you'll excuse the pun! We worried about whether to continue with the conversion as not only was it unlikely that there would be any hire for the 2020 season but we also had to consider the financial implications. With this in mind, we came up with a plan! To bring the Filly & Fox home and let her reside in the paddocks, that are now affectionately known as The Picnic Paddock (by day) and The Party Paddock (by night). The Paddocks proved so popular the will be returning for 2021... and the foreseeable future we hope! Not only are they great fun and a wonderful location to chill out but they support the Equestrian Centre as well, especially through the pandemic.
New for 2021 will be The Pit Paddock, an amazing BBQ eating experience! Find out more here.
