Experiences at The Wild Boar

Set in the beautiful Gilpin Valley The Wild Boar provides an ideal setting for a broad range of experiences from a Journey with Wolves to Duck Herding.

Experiences

Journey with Wolves in the Wild Boar Woods

Join a wolf hybrid pack, on a magical journey through the woods at The Wild Boar.  Be part of the pack. Learn the intricacy of social ranking and the subtle art of canine communication. If you’re lucky you’ll hear them howl! Finish the day with a dish of Wild Boar in the Grill & Smokehouse Restaurant or a private dining experience in The Undermillbeck Room

Lakeland Country Pursuits

Try your hand at Archery, from stationary to moving targets, our instructors will help you hone your skills, with archery courses available throughout the year. Whether starting off learning how to shoot or perfecting your skills shooting at straw bosses, you’ll soon be ready to move onto the field archery session.

If archery does not pique your interest, then why not try clay Pigeon Shooting? Based at our custom built shooting range, our clay targets are devised to mimic live quarry including pheasant, crows and grouse.  

Both the archery and clay pigeon shooting sessions are centred in the Wild Boar’s very own 72 acre, private woodland.

Combine with alternative afternoon tea for a relaxing end to an exciting day.
