SUMMARY OF THE TRIP top

Wellow Farm is set in the picturesque village of Wellow, just six miles from the centre of the beautiful Georgian City of Bath. The Farm is owned and run by Frank and his family – they are warm and welcoming and live by the ethos that nothing is too much trouble, making Wellow Farm the perfect Horse Riding Holiday in the UK . It’s set in an ideal location and offers guests the chance to ride out over rolling landscapes and along a large network of bridle ways and byways, which surround this ancient city.

Apart from the glorious countryside, guests can also enjoy lesson based tuition from one of the Senior Instructors, either Judy or Sarah have the skills to teach total beginners right up to intermediate riders in all riding disciplines. The Farm also welcomes disabled riders, and have a set of well trained horses and ponies to offer. Guests can determine their own itinerary here, and choose to mix and match both riding out with lessons, or just have one or other.

The accommodation here is in 2 pretty, recently developed self catering cottages, which have been converted to a very high standard taking into account the needs of abled and physically disabled guests. One is suitable for singles or couples and the other can accommodate a family, of up to 6 people.

The Farm itself also offers lots of other activities, which attracts families and groups of friends, looking for an active holiday. These include the Farm itself, you are welcome to have a ride in Franks Tractor, or tend to the animals, which include cows, sheep, goats, potbelly pig, rabbits & even parrots! There’s a mini assault course for the small kids, and a climbing frame for the bigger ones. There’s also archery, clay pigeon shooting and this is a great place to go out cycling, because the Farm is located on the northern edge of the Colliers Way path (NCR 24) where the old railway line diverges. The Colliers Way path is a route through some of the most beautiful countryside in the south west of England.

The Farms proximity to Bath and it’s wealth or other activities apart from riding, does mean that this is a great place to go with members of the family or a partner who doesn’t ride.
