We are back in the horse camp market now that we have stables available for short term hire. When you’re next thinking about booking a short stay for a group or club why not give us a call to see what we have available. We are constantly listening to our customers demands so the offer continues to evolve.

At the moment we have 23 stables available for a group to use, with a bit of luck this will increase to over 40 stables as our facilities develop. These existing block can be booked using our booking form in groups of 10, 13 or 23.

Please call the office to make a booking. We do not take bookings via the website, email, facebook or any other social media route.

If you would like to check if the dates for a camp are  available when you require or for more information or a booking form , please click here to complete an enquiry form. This does NOT constitute a booking.

We will give you a call to confirm details and availability. For camps there’s a booking form to capture all your details, after you provide them we will give a quote for your camp, your camp dates will only be secured once your deposit is paid.

Use of either the Indoor Grandstand Arena or the Outdoor Lakeview arena set up for you as requested (plus use of the cross country schooling facility).
3 options for food: Your group can buy food from Urchin’s Kitchen directly in normal working hours, 9am to 5pm; you can agree a menu choice from our set menu options and have food in the Club House; or you can sort out your own external catering provision.
Use of the Club House so that you have your own space to be in during the evenings when the centre’s closed. This includes a toilet and your own small kitchenette, but this isn’t suitable for self-catering.
Other facilities such as the farm ride and gallop can be added for an additional charge. Limited electrics hook-ups (18) are also available on a first come first served basis, also for a small charge, and camping can be done close to the centre on what was the grass car park.

Normally clients arrive after 5pm and settle in, riding activities take place in the following 2-3 days, whichever you prefer and clients are requested that they vacate their cleaned out stables by 3pm on the day of departure. This doesn’t mean finish riding then but it does give us time to wash the stables out before the next customers arrive.

With our new facilities we should be able to offer you incredible riding opportunities and a  wonderful experience at an affordable price.
