I would totally recommend a hack with West Anstey. I have not ridden for years but felt totally at ease and even the rain did not dampen our enjoyment. Thank you Earl and team. Thoroughly recommended. Damian and Jane

Exmoor is fantastic riding country so it was great for the children to experience it on horseback, even though they are not riders. The stables are really friendly and are very careful to match children and horses and skill level. Well worth a session, even...More

Hi yes there’s plenty of B & B ‘s to fit most budgets just look for Dulverton, Anstey, knowlestone, hawkridge, all within 10/15 minuets from the stable. Beautiful Exmoor, I live locally and never tire of our countryside.
