Our Stable Yard


Three Days and Two Nights Riding Holiday:

We are offering a fantastic horse riding holiday for intermediate and advanced riders.  You will ride over challenging terrain in the endless countryside of Exmoor, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  If you would like a break from the horses, you can also fly the birds instead or simply read a book in the peace and tranquility of the garden.

Please note, evening meals are not included in this package.  Several takeaways, pubs and restaurants are a short walk away in the delightful village of Porlock with menus to suit every dietary requirement!

Itinerary:


Day 1 - Arrive Lunchtime for a quick bite to eat from the lunchtime menu, followed by a two and a half hour ride over North Hill on one of our quality, gentle but responsive horses.  You will be challenged by steep woodland climbs, marvel at the amazing views over Exmoor from the top of the hills, and views towards the south Wales coastline.  There will be amazing canters along grassy tracks, and the occastional gallop if you wish.  On return down again you will visit the famous village of Selworthy, and stop outside the Selworthy Church for a local ice cream.  Approximately 12 miles of woodland and moorland riding straight from the farm.  On return to the Farmhouse, you will be able to indulge in an Exmoor Cream Tea in the garden.
