Had a great time out on the Segways. Was our first time and plenty of fun. Would highly recommend! Lovely place not far from Woburn safari to fill your day with activities

Booked a long overdue afternoon out for the family. We decided on the Segways, Crossbow, and 4 x 4 Land Rover Thrill Ride. Lots of giggles and fun through each of the events. The Experience the Country team were very friendly, professional, well organised and they looked after us through out our afternoon. The estate provides a lot to do... More

My Son & I had a 45 minute Segway experience on Amazon local deal. We enjoyed the afternoon & felt the whole operation was well run. After a briefing & instructions we spent some time indoors getting to grips with the balance of a Segway & then out to a field where the speed was increased to the full 12... More

A short visit but great fun in lovely surroundings. Wish it could've been a bit longer. Would definitely recommend as suitable for all ages. Will be back to do it again.

Did not know what to expect but Mark our instructor soon put us at ease in the safety practise demonstration and soon we were handling our segway with ease; turning, moving forward, going fast and slow. Then off out onto the beautiful estate where the Segway was put up a gear and we moved over rough terrain. I don't think... More

We came to Experience the Country after a full day's activities in our Cadet camp fell through. Amie and Mark couldn't have been more helpful. They worked up a full day of activities for our 23 Air Cadets including Segway driving, off-road driving and fire lighting. The kids (AND staff!) had a wonderful time, you all helped us out of...

We had a great afternoon on the Segways, No messing about, just a short safety brief and then we were off. Beautiful grounds and even a trip into the woods. Great fun and highly recommended. Plus we booked the Friday evening happy hour which was a bargain at £10 each!!

We came on an Amazon local voucher and had a great time. My boyfriend had been on a Segway before so he felt very comfortable on it. For me it initially felt a bit strange but the instructor was great and very patient and I soon got used to it. We firstly practised in a big hall and then went... More

Had a fantastic time 😉. We had a 45 mins experience which included filling out paperwork and training at a restricted speed (4 mph). This meant bombing around indoors until we were confident enough to manoeuvre the segway with ease. It helped that our instructor was calm, relaxed and friendly. Next, the speed restricter was removed so we could go... More
