The riding stables are situated just 6 miles from Oswestry and Llangollen, on the Wales/England border and on the crossroads of the Ceiriog Trail. From our farm (approximatley 1500 feet high) you overlook the beautiful Ceiriog Valley giving instant access to the best riding country available.
During our trail rides we see the most beautiful places you can imagine!
Our Berwyn Mountain trail leads us along beautiful plateaus and the highest waterfall of England and Wales. And at any time you have the fantastic view on the Berwyn Mountains which we will even cross.
On our Wayfarer Trail we ride over the famous moorland Way Farer route. During the trail you enjoy views on the Berwyn Mountains and the Shropshire hills. We will have nothing but sheep and birds for company!
On our Valley ride we enjoy the unique Welch valles, full of history of slate and granite quarrying. We ride along the last flowing Ceiriog River running trough the villages and harmlets.
