The stables are along a fantastically winding Welsh mountain road, easily accessible from the main road, unless your satnav has a sense of humour and takes you on a massive loop through what is apparently a rally stage . Still easy enough to find. The...More

Took my relatively experienced 12 yr old for a one hour ride. She had a great time with friendly companion Winnie from the stables. Meanwhile i had a walk around the beautiful valley, ending up at small national trust place tyr mawr. Win win!

Yes the stables are looking shabby. But the girl who led us for an hour and half ride was lovely, the horses were brilliant as me and my girls were absolute beginners. Hard to find but worth a visit

The area in which the stables are lacted is beautiful, pity about the stables themselves. We wouldn't go here again, Wales is full of great views.
