Arrive at Cotshill Farm near Gloucester, and meet your host. Come outside to the stables and meet some of the 11 horses and ponies that we have on site. Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and perhaps spot a few birds on our pond or feeding on Walmore Common which surrounds the farm ( a biological SSI). Then take a scenic trip through the Severn valley over the railway crossing and into the quiet Gloucester lanes. Keep an eye out for the local wildlife busy about their work unintimidated by the natural sound of the horses hooves and the silence of our carriages. There are plenty of photo opportunities as we pass through the landscape and the chance to get up close and personal with our our gentle horses and ponies. Experience the gentle nature of our horses and the joy of slower paced travel. Upon your return enjoy a delicious cream tea with homemade jam, a generous dollop of clotted cream all on fresh homemade scones!
