Host Unusual Horse-Friendly Holidays!

3 April 2019

Pet-friendly holidays are all the rage, it seems. But what if your beloved four-legged pet isn’t a dog, but a horse?

Pets are part of the family, so if you’re planning a proper family holiday then you’re going to need more than an expansive field, a comfy bed and a few treats.  ‘re looking for cosy horse-friendly facilities…not to mention horse-friendly owners.

That’s why we’ve hand-picked some of our favourite ‘horsey’ accommodation to show you (one even offers its very own ‘Horse Hotel’!)  

Naturally, you’ll find it all surrounded by some of the finest countryside you could ever get lost in, so you and your faithful steed can explore – and relax – in perfect comfort.

Get ready to take the reins, and come and see just what we mean here…
