Relax and unwind to the rhythmic clip clop of hoof beats as the beautiful countryside slowly unfolds around you.

Enjoy the countryside in a comfortable horse drawn carriage pulled by carriage horse Patrick.

It’s the perfect way to slow down and be in the moment! Whether you want a romantic drive for two, a picnic trip to a winery with friends, a sightseeing historical tour, a gift for a loved one or an experience for your children, I can do them all.

Choose between an authentic 1890s buggy waggonette, of the ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ era, which takes up to 3 passengers, or a larger, easy access covered picnic wagon which can take up to 6 passengers.
