Horse riding

Bringing horses to Pardlestone Farm and riding in the Quantock Hills

Visitors to either our cottages or B&B are welcome to bring horses to Pardlestone Farm.

We have stabling for eight and plenty of turnout. Just a few hundred yards behind the house and cottages are the Quantock Hills, where thousands of acres of open moorland and ancient wooded valleys are accessible for hours of off-road riding. Here, you can ride across the heathland and down into the valleys, or add in villages, stopping for lunch at cafés and pubs. You can expect to spot plenty of wildlife, from red deer and woodpeckers to the area’s native ponies.

We are always delighted to help tailor routes to suit your requirements, minimising the steepest and stoniest areas and taking you on to grassy tracks. We’d recommend horses are shod, or wear boots if they are barefoot. They need to be reasonably fit, depending on how much riding you plan to do, and we ask that they are up-to-date with vaccination and worming.

Please add horses to your booking through our website but feel free to phone if you’d like to discuss any details. However, be aware that Pardlestone Lane is very narrow and inaccessible for some 7.5 tonne lorries. Please contact us if in any doubt or use trailers and 3.5 tonne lorries where possible.

Our horse price includes bedded stabling and turnout, to use as you wish on a DIY basis, and is charged at a lower rate for longer stays, of four or more nights. Please see our booking page for details.
