At Brighouse Bay we have many activities for everyone to enjoy.
Go swimming in the sea….. build sandcastles, explore rock pools, play beach volleyball or just write your name in the sand! Enjoy relaxing on our own beach just through the ancient woodland alongside the park.
We’ve several coarse fishing ponds on the park for enthusiasts and sea angling from the rocks along the pretty coastline.
For the adrenalin junkies, we’ve built mountain bike trails and a pump track near the Leisure Club.
Seeking a more leisurely bike ride? We’ve plenty of roads in and around the park for the family to enjoy, but please remember to bring your safety helmet. Outwith the park the area’s ideal for cycling with quiet lanes and good views and we’re just a couple of miles off the beautiful Sustrans route 7.
Test your skill at our all-weather outdoor bowls or challenge the family to 9 hole pitch ‘n’ putt.
Go pony trekking (seasonal) for beginners of all ages and beach hacks for experienced riders. We also offer lessons for all abilities in our all-weather outdoor 60x20m school, slow hacks (walk and trot for the learner rider) and lunchtime picnic rides. And back this year too are our popular ‘Own a pony days’ and pony parties.
For the nature lovers we have self-guided woodland, coastal and farmland walks.
Brighouse Bay is a paradise for wildlife lovers too: spot mallards, roe deer, swans, heron, hares, rabbits(of course), enjoy the birdsong and see perennial (blue) flax on the foreshore, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and the only place in Scotland you’ll find this rare plant growing wild.
For the future Rory MacIlroy’s try out our pitch and putt.
