Feel the wind in your face as you ‘glide’ on a virtually silent Segway,
around our 18 acre nursery site and gardens in the Northamptonshire countryside (only a small part of which is used for shade tunnel growing areas for the Hardy Cyclamen and Dwarf Box plants), with the planted out
stock plants and the willow plantations adding to the enjoyment.
For initial training your speed will be limited to the training ‘tortoise’ mode.
However, as riding Segways is, generally, very quickly mastered,
adults will be ‘un-tortoised’ for the accompanied tour of our site.
This is to familiarise you with the various routes you can follow.
For the rest of the hour session (around 40 minutes
depending on the group size and ability) you will ride the
Segways unaccompanied and will be free to Segway at your own
pace (fast or not so fast as you prefer) with your friends/family.
The maximum speed achievable on a Segway is 12.5 mph.
And as well as the enjoyable site with varied (level and uneven) terrain, you may also see some of our ‘wild’ regular visitors - hares, muntjac deer,
green and greater spotted woodpeckers, moorhens and other birds
No 'special skills' are needed and there are no
complicated controls to learn, however, for safety and
practical reasons there are some limitations that have to
be placed on users - please Click Here to see them.

We use the Segway X2 which is a more rugged version of the new
second generation machines with turf tyres ideal for our conditions.
We offer morning and afternoon sessions on weekdays and weekends.
(Generally from March to late Autumn - subject to the weather
and ground conditions)
