New Yard News

With planning approved we have begun the works for our new stables. Temporary stables just opposite the new yard allow us to graze our horses on our private acres of lush green grass, where we are sympathetic with the wildlife around us.

Our new yard will be built sustainably using a combination of vernacular materials. Local stone, FSC sourced timber including larch cladding, rain water harvesting and solar lighting.
