Bring your own horse on holiday

Bring your own horse along for the ride!

There's nothing more wonderful than seeing beautiful countryside 

from the back of a horse 

- unless it's from the back of your OWN horse.  

The Moats Bed and Breakfast can offer you the chance to do this at a budget price.

Guests' horses are accommodated either on well-fenced and secure grazing with field shelters on the south-facing slopes of Fromes Hill, or in stabling at Coddington, where you can enjoy on-farm riding and the use of a menage.

The Malvern Hills* are a quiet 5 to 8 mile ride away, but you will find excellent car parking facilities for your trailer and good access from the western flank of the hill, between 

Upper Colwall and The Wyche Cutting.

Good riding is also available on Bringsty Common and throughout the Wye Valley ANOB.

The Moats lies directly between the Worcestershire Way and Herefordshire Trail, parts of which are accessible to horses.

From the crest at the Worcestershire Beacon, you can enjoy views - north to the Long Mynd and Clee Hill, east to Birmingham, Bredon, the Vale of Evesham and the Cotswolds,

 south as far as the Forest of Dean and the Bristol Channel, 

and west to the Borders and Black Mountains of Wales.


Horse riders have a right of access across the Malvern Hills and Commons meaning your rides don't just have to follow the bridleways, but there are some paths where access is restricted.

These include the Easier Access Trails from Earnlaw Quarry car park and Black Hill car park and the path adjacent to Jubilee Drive.  Walkers are given priority here.  Please take note of signs where access is restricted.
