Around one third of the path is across fields and along gravel tracks, whilst the remainder of the path follows minor tarmac roads. As the path forms a ring, you can start and finish wherever you like. Most people choose a section of the route and make a day trip of it. There are several places en route where you can “park” your horse while you take a rest.
If you’re ambitious enough to ride the whole route or choose a section longer than you can manage in a day, this is also possible. Indeed, there are 11 places to stay overnight en route – including several B&Bs with overnight paddocks for your horse.
The most challenging adventure, however, is to use the so-called “hay hotels”, of which there are several along the route. Here you sleep in a shelter out in the great outdoors close to your horse – which is quite an experience!
