Friendly, knowledgeable staff - and horses! My family are all novices when it comes to horse riding, but were looked after really well, and received some great tuition. The heath, and the views, are beautiful. 100% recommended.

My children enjoyed a lovely walk on the heath today on Whiskey and Shay. Beautiful scenery, lovely horses. Talking to the children afterwards. They really enjoyed it but say they would have liked longer on the walk. Thank you.
