“Beautiful horses, wonderful welcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We have just returned from a weekend at Hill Farm Stables in the pretty little town of Laugharne.
We were greeted by Jackie who looked after us from the minute we arrived, quickly getting us to meet the Horses and tour the Farm. Within hours we were tacking up and off riding with the fabulous forward going horses, who were gloriously responsive and keen to work. After settling into our cosy room, and fully showered, we were presented with one of Jackie's home cooked dinners and shared some hilarious horse stories late into the evening. The weekend took us on some lovely trails and quiet roads, exploring the countryside and enjoying some stunning views from the hills. The horses were just great, sure footed and eager to trot and canter on request. The beach ride was definitely the highlight, with an exhilarating gallop along the Pendine sands.
Our riding has definitely improved, with the guidance from Melissa, Jackie And Marianne. We were patiently guided through stable management, and just about all other stable duties and activities. Never forced to participate, but encouraged to learn and observe at our own pace. I enjoyed the full farm experience, watching these spectacular animals being wonderfully cared for and loved.

Wonderful environment to improve and learn, fully equipped for the seriously advanced!

Great memories...... Thanks!

X Sara.

“Great, friendly and thoughtful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We visited here recently on the recommendation of a local hotel. I had contacted Jackie a month in advance as I was looking for an activity for the day before my husbands 50th birthday. The email contact I had with Jackie was very helpful and even went as far as to try and find alternative restaurant recommendations for us when the first one suggested wasn't open.

Our hack into the surrounding countryside with Melissa was lovely, just the three of us and the horses. We took as much of a shady route as possible due to the hot weather but it was lovely to ride to Laugharne centre and see the castle. Melissa was great at pointing out local points of interest and letting us feel a little part of 'towmship' life.

The really nice touch was that, as it was a special birthday, Jackie arranged for us to have some cake and Bucks Fizz after our ride. It turned out that this was the only cake my husband had for his birthday so was much appreciated but what was really nice is that it was a surprise to both of us. As I had planned our 5 day trip down to every detail it was a nice to have something that surprised me too. Very thoughtful and appreciated.

Hills Farm is family run and maybe that's why it feels so comfortable. They open their house and welcome you into their lives whether you are there for a short hack or a holiday stay. We loved it.
