Cycling & Walking
East Anglia is known as “England’s Cycling Country”, where smooth terrain makes it a pleasure for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Quiet country lanes mean that you can cycle in peace and quiet and admire the scenery and wildlife at a leisurely pace.
Claverings Farm is also well situated for great country walks, with plenty of stop off points along the way, including the award winning gastro pub, The Compasses in Pattiswick.

One of the most popular walks in the area is around the Marks Hall Estate and gardens which virtually border the Claverings Farm Estate.

Chalkney Wood is also situated nearby, on the outskirts of Earls Colne.

Horses are more than welcome at Claverings Farm Holiday Lodges and we have some of the best hacking here should you wish to bring your horse on holiday and explore the surrounding countryside. Three established equestrian centres are situated within easy driving distance of Claverings Farm:
