Self-catering country cottages and accommodation where you can take your horse
Find a holiday cottage offering facilities such as stabling, grazing and paddocks where your horse will be welcome. Naturally we want to take all members of our families on holiday and it's quite common for people to take their dogs and occasionally other pets such as horses. That's one of the good things about self-catering accommodation - it can be a home from home.
It's possible in a few locations to also take your horse with you, and there's nothing better than to be able to ride and enjoy different views on horseback. Some of the self-catering cottages shown below also offer riding holidays and riding lessons. Many are farm cottages and offer good access to fields and bridleways where you can ride your horse on holiday.
