Even the most demanding adventurer will find plenty to keep them occupied at The Mole Resort, set among 125 acres of glorious fields and forests. In fact, there are over 40 activities and amenities available that will appeal to adults and children alike. Some of these activities may even help adults to rediscover their inner child!

The Mole Resort is one of Britain's most dog-friendly

The great outdoors

Do you have a canine companion that you’d rather not leave at home? Not to worry, this is one of the most animal-friendly resorts around, with dog-friendly lodges and miles and miles of unspoiled countryside that are just begging for you to grab the lead and set off on a wander. If your dog could talk, they’d ask you to book The Mole. However, even if you are not avec pooch, it’s worth getting out into the rolling hills for bird spotting and fresh air. On that note, there are plenty of activities which will encourage you to foster a deeper connection with nature, whether that be crafting a bird box, bat box or bug hotel, or learning how to survive off the fat of the land during a special bushcraft course. Want to relax next to a roaring bonfire? That can be arranged, too.

The indoor swimming pool


Anyone looking to stay in shape can either do it by running the Trim Trail obstacle course or, if you prefer to exercise with hands-on instruction, there are plenty of fitness courses available to choose from. Guests who are looking to do some resistance strength training, get in that much-needed holiday cardio to offset the calories, or simply stretch away the stresses of everyday life will be able to make use of The Mole Resort’s amply provisioned gym area. Looking to get in a good swim? There’s both an indoor pool for the cooler months and an outdoor pool for those looking to soak up some warm summertime rays.

Axe throwing at The Mole Resort

Let the games begin

This is where The Mole Resort really hits its stride. Is there an activity that you always wanted to try but never quite got around to it? Chances are you’ll be able to find it here. Gaming pursuits range from the less orthodox, such as axe throwing, Attack Sense fully responsive shooting games, and disc golf, to the more popular, including tennis, 5-a-side football and, well, traditional golf. However, it doesn’t stop there. You’ll find a whole host of other activities ranging from pickleball, an accessible take on tennis that took off around Seattle, Washington before becoming popular around the planet, to foot golf, combat archery to croquet, pétanque, and a fully stocked games room, not to mention classes such as pottery which comes in handy on the off-chance that there's a rainy day. Game on!
