Lower Hardres, situated just outside Canterbury, is a lovely area for horse riders to enjoy a quiet ride and take in the peaceful atmosphere of this rural area.

Discover the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on horseback.

Permissive off-road riding routes link to public bridleways making for stunning circular rides, near the historical cathedral city of Canterbury.

The woodland and open parkland are home to both a variety of birds and insects, as well as some beautiful scenery.

You will commonly see foxes, rabbits and squirrels around the area as well as a number of birds. Swallows nest each year and kestrels regularly hover in search of a meal.

This is a great way to explore the fantastic countryside around Lower Hardres, named after the Hardres family, who owned the land around this area for 600 years after the Norman Conquest of 1066.
