The Coleridge Way Livery is adjacent to the cottages. In fact you look out of the Coleridge Way Cottages onto some of the paddocks of the Livery Yard. Alice our enthusiastic freelance BHS qualified instructor teaches all ages and abilities.
Willie, a foal, is the newest edition to the livery yard. Born to Abbey, our mare in August 2009, he is a great joy to brighten up the yard.
The livery yard has stables for 8 horses in one large barn. Each stable has it’s own rubber mats, electricity point and low-energy lighting. The barn has running water and floodlights. The stables are hand-built. The indoor riding arena measures 75 feet by 45 feet and has the most beautiful waxed silica sand surface. It is called Activ-Track and is made by Martin Collins International or Hungerford. The arena is well ventilated but dry and secure to the elements. Lighting is from 8 low-energy metal-halide floodlights. There is electricity sockets to plug in your stereo or i-Pods.
Being at the mid point on the Coleridge Bridle Way means that we get regular visitors to the yard for a little rest & relaxation. Emma will happily accommodate your horse in the yard for an overnight stay, a few days, or even a DIY livery (if there is room).
The tack room and feed room have hot and cold water and this where the washing machines and tumble dryers are for use by the cottages. There is also a fully functioning toilet, however the tack room and feed room and still under construction.

Exmoor is horse riding paradise and one of the most rewarding ways to experience the natural beauty of Exmoor is from horseback. Spectacular wooded river valleys, rolling hills and sweeping moorland make for the most memorable horse riding you'll find anywhere.
There is great riding out straight from the livery yard, from easy through intermediate to advanced. We have a livery yard adjacent to the cottages so if you would like to holiday with your horse we offer stabling, feed and bedding and you can turn them out in the paddocks.
Just call Emma on 01984 640 582 and tell her what you need. We also have an indoor riding arena for schooling or just as lovely place to ride when the weather turns foul. Alice our enthusiastic freelance BHS qualified instructor teaches all ages and abilities.
Being on the midpoint of Coleridge Bridle Way we have excellent riding on our doorstep. There are also numerous rides long and short straight from the cottages for experienced riders and beginners.
