Recommended Activities

Throughout the year The Wild Boar offers a variety of courses in differing areas of interest from Smoking Courses to Bushcraft courses.

Smoking Courses

The Wild Boar is working with smoking experts Smoky Jo’s to provide two day courses, where guests will learn how to hot and cold smoke their own food.

Those taking part in the courses will get the chance to smoke a range of different foods such as chicken, salmon, sausages and cheeses. As well as using the Inns own purpose built smokehouse the Smoky Jo’s team will show how tremendous results can be achieved at home – on a stove, converted bbq, wardrobe or filing cabinet!

Smoking Courses

Clay Pigeon Shooting

Why not try your hand at clay pigeon shooting with our Instructor at the purpose built shooting range, situated within the hotel's very own private 72 acre wood. Take your chance to shoot at clays that simulate the flight of a number of different wild birds, including; the pheasant, crow, grouse and perhaps even a bolting rabbit!
