Bring your Horse on Holiday

Bring your horses to Street Farm and enjoy fabulous safe hacking, luxury accommodation, 40 acres of  grazing, and purpose made facilities to ensure you and your horse have a wonderful holiday.

Since 2008 we have been offering holidays for guests staying in our self catering cottages the opportunity to bring their own horse and enjoy the peace and quiet and wonderful bridleways. We have years of experience of knowing what our guests need and we work hard to make sure everything is well organised for you to have a fun and safe holiday. Our horse holidays are offered on a self-guided basis where you go out on your own with one of our maps.

Our location is a horse-riders dream with an extensive network of well maintained bridleways offering a variety of route choices to suit everyone. We have short routes, long routes, flat routes, more challenging routes across the tops of the fells as well as our very popular ride to the village pub ! We are fortunate to be surrounded by some of the finest off road riding locations in the UK where you can still ride all day and hardly see a soul. Our gate leads directly onto the bridleway and there is a good mixture of grass routes across open fell where you can enjoy a good canter as well as a few stone tracks. Any road work is along very quiet, single track lanes, many of which are unfenced. Any farm traffic we do meet is generally slow moving and considerate for horse and riders.

Importantly, deciding where to ride is made super easy because we also offer trail riding holidays (using our own horses) which means we have become fairly-well acquainted with the local tracks and trails!  If you are more experienced, we can help you plot your own route with tips on the best places to stop and picnic, or you can use our easy to follow route maps. And if you prefer to leave the navigation to the experts, we can even provide you with a guide.

Accommodation Choices

We have 5 self-catering cottages available for you to choose, which overlook the stables and paddocks. These have been beautifully converted from an old stone barn and retain the traditional features of oak trusses, feature stone walls along with stylish interiors and mod cons such as power showers, crisp white linen, smart TV's and superfast broadband. Each property is toasty warm with its own wood-burning stove and central heating powered by our own biomass boiler. At the end of a day's riding you can look forward to a visit to the indoor spa room with a six seater jacuzzi and everyone is treated to their own set of towels and a towelling robe during their stay. The gardens have lovely views across the valley and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sun go down.
