Riding & Driving Holidays – stay in a real Log Cabin!

Come and stay in a real log cabin situated in our idyllic woodland area where you are welcome to bring the whole family, even the four-legged ones! Just minutes from Easter Hall Park Riding School, the self-catering accommodation is perfectly positioned to allow you and your horse to take advantage of our full range of equine services and facilities including livery, as well as access to the Tarka Trail for some of the most picturesque off-road hacking in Devon. Our large outdoor schooling area has an all-weather surface for flat-work & jumping and we also have a smaller indoor area. If you would like to bring your own  horse and take advantage of our livery facility, please let us know at the time of booking.

No Horse? No Problem!

We are very happy for you to use our horses and we are able to arrange riding or driving lessons for you to enjoy while staying in our log cabin. If you would like any further information, please email us with your requirements at gailpalmer@easterhall.co.uk  – we look forward to hearing from you!

We are centrally located near the A386, within easy reach of Dartmoor and Exmoor, only 30 minutes drive from some of Devon’s best beaches, such as Bude and Westward Ho, making us an ideal base for your holiday in Devon.
