Climb aboard our carriage and prepare to take in the views, make yourself comfortable as Gordon and the horses take you on a tour of the woodland tracks and country lanes within the estate. Lucky visitors may spot a glimpse of deer or buzzards while meandering through the trees.Carriage rides last approximately one hour. We advise passengers dress warmly and bring gloves in the colder months. Suitable for all the family. We have a open top carriage for the warmer months .

      Cold January ride out
      Thank you to Gordon, Katie and Otto for a lovely ride in the grounds of Escrick Park Estate on Saturday , the sun shone , nice and dry , great all round. Refreshments served half way round were very welcomed , the hot chocolate was so warming on a chilly day. On return to the cosy tearoom soup and a roll was served all left for us to help ourselves with plenty of teas /coffees to hand. Thanks again for making my 50th a memorable day and to all out there looking at something a bit diffferent please give Skipwith carriage rides a go 😀

      Fantastic, friendly service and great experience
      We booked this and took my Mother in Law for her 80th birthday surprise and it was fantastic. The team could not do enough for us from start to finish and catered for all our needs including my mother in laws mobility issues. They kept her warm with blankets and hot water bottles and made sure we were all comfortable throughout. Ben, the horse, was so well behaved and was a pleasure to be around. As a horse owner myself, I can honestly say the team thoroughly care about their animals and customers. The scenery was fantastic and all in all a thoroughly enjoyable and well organised experience. We are already planning to go again!! Highly recommend.

      We keep coming back, that says it all 😀
      We have been bringing our daughter for over a year to enjoy the 1hour carriage rides around Escrick Park Estate. The Estate is private and you have the opportunity to have a picnic from the drinks and food menu. The carriage is open top but is covered during the colder months with see through windows. The changing seasons brings such a different aspect to the ride each time we go. It’s such a lovely ride for the scenery and wildlife. We alternate with Ben, Hercules or Arthur who pull the carriage. For us personally our daughter has special needs and Gordon has been excellent in accommodating her and us at all times. It’s an absolute pleasure for us to bring our daughter who loves the whole experience.

    The experience was fantastic. Hercules and Albert were very well behaved. The ride through Escrick Park Estate took in the woods and fields with stunning views. The cream tea package was enjoyable. Overall a very worthwhile experience. Would highly recommend.

    Ben, TJ & Arthur were wonderful giving us a pleasant gentile ride through the estate. Gordon & Kate were not too bad either as the drivers. We took the grandchildren (8&6) on our way home from a week's holiday in Yorkshire and decided to use it as a break the journey. It was a lovely hour, quiet, peaceful and very comfy. The hot chocolate was a pleasant surprise and very tasty.
    As grandma said she did not mind paying the three figure price if it helped the rescue horses have a better life.

    This was a gift for my wedding anniversary and it was so lovely. We really enjoyed our ride round the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and stopped mid-way for a hot drink (hot chocolate with marshmallows!). Our horse was well mannered and professional and our driver was very welcoming and knowledgeable. We had the afternoon tea package and decided to have our picnic afterwards and we were shown some lovely spots to enjoy the picnic. I was so pleased with the food, i'm gluten free and expected mine to be a bit lacking but I had mini sandwiches and scones and all sorts! Very impressed with the effort gone to accommodating my food allergy. Thankyou for a great day - recommended to anyone wanting a romantic experience!

    We enjoyed the 1 hour carriage ride however the afternoon tea was disappointing, not the food, but how and when we could eat it. It was all served on one platter and we had to find somewhere to eat it after the carriage ride ourselves! It would have been helpful if this had been explained on booking the photos shown on the website do not reflect the experience we had. Sorry.

    What a fantastic experience! We loved everything about our day. Gordon was friendly and chatted to us about the horses and the area. The horses were beautiful and looked very healthy and happy. When we stopped for a hot drink Gordon again was fantastic and went above and beyond ensuring our little boy had something to drink. We ended our carriage ride with a gorgeous picnic and Prosecco which we enjoyed near a beautiful pond. The village is very pretty and peaceful - the perfect location for a Sunday stroll.

    We had a fantastic spooky Halloween ride with Ben and Gordon! Ben the horse was dressed as a dragon and the carriage was brilliantly decorated. Despite the blood curdling screams from our children in the carriage (getting into the Halloween spirit!), Ben didn’t put a foot wrong. Super safe horses and a very knowledgeable owner. Can highly recommend!

    Fantastic experience and value for money., booking was easy and all messages/emails were answered straight away.

    We were really well looked after by Gordon. I'd recommend this for any age group, and would definitely go again. We visited the church afterwards which Gordon recommended, and really glad we did. 5 star all round!

    A Christmas Eve outing. Pulled by Ben the horse around the lanes and forests of Skipwith and the Escrick Park Estate. Hot chocolate and mulled wine added to the experience. Great fun and can't wait to do it again.

    Very disappointed and let down. I booked this for a friend for her birthday, we were so excited as what more do you want.. horses and cakes?!! We arrived to be informed by text they had double booked us.. could we come back tomorrow… not possible due to work and it was a 70 odd mile round trip!
    Still had no contact from the company .. I understand mistakes are made but what terrible customer service! Birthday ruined!

    Thanks for your review. We had you booked in for the next day not our fault you got the wrong day and mixed up. So that's a lie we didn't double book you as you clearly know that.

    Have almost lost count of the number of trips I’ve taken now but each has been absolutely magical.
    The latest was a surprise birthday present for an elderly relative and he was just thrilled. The hot chocolate and marshmallows while taking in the scenery were just the icing on the cake.
    Of course Gordon and Ben were their usual delightful selves and it’s clear to see that Ben is an extremely well cared for, cherished member of the team.
    I can’t recommend these trips highly enough 💞🥰
