Overnight Horse Stabling
Please note that Windrush Farm does not rent horses to the general public. Riding facilities are strictly for guests that trailer their own horse(s). Since Windrush is a working horse farm, adequate facilities are available on premises to board and care for your horse. Guided horseback tours along the Chesapeake Bay shoreline are also available. Call ahead to make arrangements prior to your departure.
World Class Salt Water Fishing
The Eastern Shore of Virginia is a Mecca for anglers up and down the East Coast, and for good reason. Outstanding inshore angling opportunities are available on both the Seaside and Bayside of the peninsula. Oceanside channels and the Bayside are famous for flounder, grey trout, cobia, red and black drum, bluefish, whiting, spot and croaker. Offshore angling for dolphin, marlin, tuna and wahoo is available at nearby Willis Wharf or Wachapreague on the Oceanside. Oceanside barrier islands have excellent surf fishing during the spring and fall. Local guides are available for any type of angling action you desire.
Birding and Nature Watching
Extensive pristine marshlands cover both the Bay and Oceanside of the peninsula. These areas contain an amazing array of bird and wildlife. The fall migration of shore birds down the coast provides visiting photographers with a unique opportunity. Several refuges and special observation areas are accessible to motorists. Guides are also available for nature tours or rent a kayak and venture out on your own.
The area surrounding Windrush Bed & Breakfast as well as Smith Beach Cottage has hundreds of miles of secondary and tertiary roads that are perfect for a exciting day of backcountry cycling. The options for cycling enthusiasts are almost limitless.
History comes alive in this area with old courthouses, buildings and records dating back to the seventeenth century. Boating, kayaking on either the Bay or ocean, bicycling, shopping and antiquing are also popular pastimes on the Eastern Shore.
