You are free to wander anywhere within the grounds, but be wary not to startle the horses. If you are patient they will come over to you. Mornings and early evenings you are likely to see a variety of wildlife including deer, foxes, badgers rabbits and hares. As our farm is a headland jutting out into the Atlantic a variety of migrating birds can often be seen.

Our gallops are now a pathway leading down to the cliff at the bottom where it meets with the Coastal Footpath. (turn right to Westward Ho! – about 1 mile – or left to Clovelly, about 10 miles).
We look forward to welcoming you to North Devon’s precious gem – Westward Ho!
