Very disappointed that I couldn't book a driving experience at Oulton Park (one of the reasons for staying at Peckforton) So opted for the LR Experience with a little trepidation it has to be said. We were running a bit late but Charles greeted us with a friendly smile and told us to check-in and take our time. Then out in a 95k Range Rover through some amazing woodland tracks and into the quarry - which I can only describe as a skate park for 4x4's! Surprisingly exhilarating at 3 mph! If you have already booked go for the LR Defender for what I feel would be a more involved experience. Very good set up and something different. (ask about room discount if staying at hotel).

A great half day out. After purchasing a new Range Rover we decided to go on this experience so that we could use our vehicle to it's full capacity. We found that it was very informative and we learned a lot about the different controls and their uses. Driving on the off road course was also a great way to put what we had learned into practice. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be but it also helped to build your confidence driving on difficult terrain. Lot's of tea and coffee and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended just for fun or for serious off roaders.

We were invited to take a 'Land Rover' experience after purchasing an Evoque. What a thrill it was! Our instructor Ed was just fantastic and clearly loved both his job and Range Rover cars!

Nothing was too much trouble, Since we bought the car we had not been brave enough to use the automatic parking - Ed made it look easy and we both parked successfully under his tutelage.

Initially Ed drove us to the top of the tracks - where he very obligingly took some pictures of us. Then it was our turn - wow! We enjoyed ourselves so much!

The highlight of the afternoon was a section of bridges, 1 in 2 gradients, (or at least that's what it felt like!) and manoeuvring over humps with two wheels off the ground. Needless to say Ed drove this part.

Overall we had just a wonderful afternoon!!!

We enjoyed a morning off road experience and stayed at Peckforton Castle so we were available for the 9 a.m. start. We had chosen the Freelander as we have owned several and currently have a Freelander 2. Our instructor for the day was Martin who was friendly and obviously enjoyed his job! It was lovely to learn more about the vehicle and Martin was keen to point out all its merits. During the drive we stopped to enjoy the views over Cheshire and beyond which was fabulous. We were impressed with the control of the vehicle over the ramp and its capabilities over the terrain. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it when he had his turn to drive the vehicle! Throughout the morning, Martin kept in touch with his colleagues ensuring each vehicle knew the position of others. Overall, a great way of spending a morning especially if you are enthusiastic about Land Rovers! Thank you Martin - we will definitely return!!
