Great Ridge

"Everything was perfect, from the booking to the final day...We were sorry to leave"- Sara Williams

small great ridgeThe Great Ridge is a small network bounded by Longleat to the north and the Nadder Valley to the south, where our one-centre host at Sutton Mandeville links it with Cranborne Chase. The Great Ridge network is hilly in parts (300-400 ft), with big-scale, rolling chalk downs in the north, which have good views and long canters, and a large area of ancient woodland along the Great Ridge itself. The countryside in the south is smaller scale and more intimate, with classic English villages. The riding is a bit slower, but the countryside changes faster.

This area is good for mountain-biking.

This is a varied ride through downs and woods, followed by small-scale hills and fields in the pretty, watercress-laden Deverill and Wylye valleys.
