Stonetrail is a specialist hacking out centre with miles of bridleway routes leading direct from our gate which include the Pennine Bridleway and a great choice of routes across the Eden Valley. We ride our routes every day and we can help you as much as you wish to pick the most suitable route for your group. You can choose from a one hour hack to a full day ride with either a picnic or a pub stop.
You can choose to stay on site with your horse in one of our luxury self catering cottages which overlook the paddocks or stay locally in a B&B. Centre based horse holidays have certain advantages over trail type holidays. You can vary the amount of riding you do each day to suit you and your horse and you can include as much non horsey activities as you wish. This type of holiday is particularly suitable when you have non riding partners in your group or if you are new to horse holidays as we can provide you with as much help as you need during your stay.
You can rest assure that your Horse Holiday will be a well deserved break when you see the accommodation awaiting you. Our three luxury self catering properties have been designed with maximum comfort in mind with stylish interiors, power showers and crisp white linen. Carefully converted to retain their original architectural features each property has been individually styled offering a blend of rustic charm in a contemporary setting with exposed trusses and wood burning stoves for cosy nights after a long days riding on the fells. New for 2012 is our onsite spa just a few steps from your accommodation which includes a jacuzzi and hot tub, with use included in the price of your stay. Outside you can enjoy a shared garden and courtyard with stunning views across the valley, perfect for evening drinks.
There is no need to bother with the cooking because we have several excellent Inns close by, one of which is within walking distance ( The Fat Lamb) which offers a mid week meal discount for our residents.
