On Tuesday, 2nd September, I went pony trekking at Spoon Hall - the family was really friendly and welcoming and very safety conscious and the ponies and horses were well cared for and well mannered. We were very lucky with the weather and the countryside and views were stunning! I had such a great time that I went for another ride... More

The original day we wanted to book was full but the friendly staff put on an extra trek for us. My son Zack (8yrs) was a little nervous at first but soon loved the trek. My daughter who is... More

Above is the description from my 11 year old who went trekking yesterday for one hour. There was only one space left on the trek so she went without knowing anyone else. She was made very welcome and had a great time. I was entirely confident because the seven trekkers were accompanied by four staff from the farm. Much safer... More

I would rate our pony trekking session with Spoonhall Farm an outstanding Lakeland experience. My 4 children ranged from 7-12 years and were really keen to try this out. After reading one previous review I was keen to ensure it would be safe for them as we are all total beginners. I can only speak for my experience and I... More

My son and daughter-in-law and their two children were in a party of seven on horseback, with some walking attendants, on 3 July 2014. Something startled the animals and they all bolted. Six of the riders were thrown, including all of my family. My granddaughter sustained a fractured humerus, my grandson was bruised and shaken, my daughter-in-law suffered severe muscular... More

Did this yesteray with my family and can honestly say we all had a ball. Coniston fells are stunning and the trek is not for the faint hearted but the family make sure everyone is ok and we felt safe and looked after at all times. We were out for much longer than an hour and it was definitely value... More

We went on an hour treck during May half term. We are a family with 11 yr old and 8 yr old that have never been on a pony before. Both the staff and ponies were very friendly! It was such a lovely introduction to riding with beautiful views of Coniston lake. Would recommend.

Kids have asked for a horse ride so we got to this lovely farm on the lakes. The staff are very friendly and told us many local stories through the trip, which made it even better. We called to order and payment is in cash
