With freedom on the horizon – thanks to our heroes in the NHS! – we can start planning to escape the crowds and head to our wonderful countryside paddling or SUP on the Thames, or swimming, coasteering and surfing along the Cornish coast. Fully loaded, nature filled days in the fresh air morph into relaxing evenings around our firepit with BBQ’s and our “free beer and wine” fridge, re-energising with like-minded active people.
Our tours are for the active – hop on your bike and ride directly into the Cotswolds or walk down to the South Cornish coast from our start points in Oxford and Bodmin Parkway railway station. From swimming in deserted coves after a long, chilled, walk along the cliffs, to glamping in the Cotswolds or on our Long Distance Walking Trails – there is something for everyone with a thirst for adventure.
You’ll have plenty of time to sit back relax and enjoy the ride, finishing our days in some of the best pubs known to man chatting in beer gardens and watching the sunset.
