About the Owner

We started training here in 1990 when my husband Rod retired from a jump jockey. We have 2 sons James and Patrick. James is a flat jockey and rides most of the 50 horses we have in training. Patrick is an amateur jockey and works here full time as a work rider. We built the cottage in 2010 so our owners could have somewhere to stay if required, but then decided to take it a step further by running it as a holiday cottage.

Spotless cottage in great surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is every bit as good as the pictures show, and more!

It is spotless. The furnishings and fittings are to a high standard.

The setting is great, in amongst the action of the stables, yet private enough that it doesn't intrude if you don't want it to.

The owner, Louise, is very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

Remember to take the stable yard tour!!

From the Owner

The cottage is ideally situated being 5 mins of the M5, but in a quiet location. Also being set in our own 30 acres is an added bonus if you have pets or enjoy walking. Offering guests a yard tour, and watching horses on the gallops is another attraction. We have had guests that follow us and know all the horses already, or had no idea how a racing yard works!
