Horses & Dogs

 

Horses

We have three endurance horses on our farm; Bobby, Medina and Valli. They live out day and night. From your cottage you will see them in the paddocks and on the track - our guests love seeing them canter to their shelter yard! If you would like to ride a horse yourself, we can reccommend a local trekking centre.

Triscombe Barns loves to welcome guest horses. We have 4 stables, 32 acres of land, an arena and we have made an equine spa in our icy cold stream. Hacking on the Quantocks Hills is fantastic with amazing views to the Bristol channel, moorland, wooded coombes, steep hills but also some lovely canter stretches.

Stabling is charged at £20 per night which includes miscanthus bedding. There are 2 smaller stables (2.6 x 3.5m) on one side of the tackroom and 2 larger stables on the other side; all are fitted with automatic drinkers. We ask guests to bring their own hay if possible. If you bring your own electric fencing you are welcome to put up a corral in our fields and we charge just £5 per night.

 

Dogs

At Triscombe Barns we welcome well behaved dogs. The Quantock Hill are superb for dog walkers. We charge £50 per "dog stay", this is independent of the number of nights or of the number of dogs (3 maximum). Dogs must not be left unattended unless they are in a cage. We expect dog mess to be cleared up and for dogs to be kept under control at all times. Obviously we ask dog owners to respect the horses and sheep in our fields and not let dogs run after them.

 

How to make a booking including horse stabling, corralling or dog stay charges:

Make the accomodation booking. When it says "Thanks for  your booking" you will find below "Explore Extras". Hover over the picture of what you want to add and click "Add to Basket" as many times as you want to add (for example 4 nights stabling for 2 horses, you will have to add it 8 times).  It is also possible to add extras to your booking at a later date by logging in to your 'My Booking' section.
