BRING YOUR OWN HORSES
BREDON HILL, an area designated as an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, criss crossed with Bridleways where you can spend all day hacking, is accessed straight out of our gate. Why not take a picnic or drop down to one of the pubs round the base of the hill. It's all open farmland with paths and some nice banks for a canter. The views all round are stunning. At the top by The Banbury Stone you are about 970 ft above sea level (which is visible down the Severn Estuary to the south west). To the east, the Cotswolds are very close, to the south Cleeve Common above Cheltenham race course is visible fronted by Dumbleton Hill. Across the Rivers Severn and Avon, you can see the Welsh Mountains and The Forest of Dean. Due west you can watch the sun set behind the iconic Malvern Hills and round to the north west you can see as far as the Abberley Hills and Clee Hill above Ludlow. It's a lot to take in whilst enjoying the beauty and peace of Bredon Hill itself.
There are always hunter trials, fun rides, and other activities going on locally including a number of nearby competition venues catering for all standards of horse and rider. Hunting locally can easily be arranged with The North Cotswold or The Crome and West Warwickshire packs.
At The Coppice, we have approx 18 acres of grazing, an all surface menage (so you can sharpen up your dressage during your stay) and stabling for up to 6 horses depending on which of ours are in. We can offer DIY livery for the duration of your stay along with parking for your box or trailer. All we need to know is what you need in good time to make sure there is enough space for you and to tailor the package and terms we offer to suit your needs. Cottons Lane is a bit tight so probably not suitable for the very largest of lorries but we get our Leyland DAF 7.5 tonner up and down with no problem.
