Bring your horse on holiday and stay in a boutique cottage overlooking the paddock
For riders who don’t have your own horse, we are just a two minute drive from Collacott Riding Stables who offer wonderful pony trekking on sensible steeds.
We offer DIY grass turnout for £10 per horse per night. Guests need to bring their own electric fencing, although we have big plans for post and rail fenced paddocks next year! We have access to beautiful hacking down quiet Devon lanes, which give way to bridleways, and just twenty minutes in the horse box takes you to Exmoor where you will find some of the best hacking in England. There are also spectacular beach rides just a short drive away. We offer guided/escorted hacks from the property from our own steady horses for those riders (or horses) who would prefer company. There is a rentable arena just five minutes hack away at Collacott Riding Stables for those who want to school. There’s plenty of parking for horse-boxes, and places to tether your horse to groom and wash them down. At the end of a days’ ride, why not treat yourself to a soak in the hot tub! We do ask that horse owners’ poo-pick the area their horse is using, or we can do this for you for an extra £15 per stay. We are able to sell you hay if you don’t want to bring your own. We are also a dog friendly site.
Here is a useful guide to riding in devon.
Please be aware that we will need to see copies of the horses’ passports and vaccination records prior to arrival, which must be fully up to date. Riding is a high risk sport and you undertake it at your own risk. Please be aware that there are other holiday-makers sharing the site with you who may not be used to horses. Please only ride/lead your horse in the designated areas and be aware at all times of the safety or yourself and others. Hats and suitable footwear should be worn at all times when mounted. We also offer full site book out for groups of friends who want to ride together.
Uncomplicated comfort, connecting you with nature
Feed the alpacas and gather eggs for breakfast. Make new friends at fireside gatherings. Laze in a hammock, spot wildlife in the woods or delve through the games trunk. Cook up a smoke-licked family feast in the Dutch oven, count the stars as night falls, enjoy a glass of champagne in the hot tub as the sun sets over the valley.
