4x4 Off-Road Driving in The Lake District

Lake District Off-Roading Experience

With stunning views of Lake Windermere on the private Graythwaite Estate, ours is the Lake District’s only purpose-built off-road course with instruction delivered by our qualified team. We’re happy to teach first time drivers and improve the skills of seasoned pros alike. With your instructor in the passenger seat you’ll negotiate steep inclines, jaw dropping descents, epic leans and water crossings all with unrivalled views.

Typically each vehicle is booked by the hour for up to 4 people, who can either share the driving or, for the younger children, just enjoy the ride. We do have 7-seater Land Rovers so can accommodate families or groups of up to 6 with 2 guests seated in the third row of seats. Please note though, that if all guests are wanting to drive, their time behind the wheel will be reduced the more there are in each vehicle. If you’d like longer, simply book a two-hour experience or multiple vehicles for one hour. 

Our vehicles; for us there is only one 4×4 – the original and best – the Land Rover Defender. In Land Rover’s own words off-roading is all about going ‘as slow as possible and as fast as necessary’ and believe us this is the most fun you’ll ever have at 5 miles per hour! 

Following recent controversy within the National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site it’s important to point out that we avoid green lanes and this activity is carried out in an environmentally sustainable way on private land on a course accredited by the British Off Road Driving Association and the IOPD, that is constantly maintained.

PLEASE NOTE; we don’t take online bookings for same day / next day in case we’re inundated 🙂 so for bookings within 48 hours, please call or email your enquiry and hopefully we’ll be able to fit you in. 🙂
