What you'll do

Arrive at Cotshill Farm near Gloucester, and meet your host. Come outside to the stables and meet some of the 11 horses and ponies that we have on site. Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and perhaps spot a few birds on our pond or feeding on Walmore Common which surrounds the farm ( a biological SSI).

Then take a scenic trip through the Severn valley over the railway crossing and into the quiet Gloucester lanes. Keep an eye out for the local wildlife busy about their work unintimidated by the natural sound of the horses hooves and the silence of our carriages.

There are plenty of photo opportunities as we pass through the landscape and the chance to get up close and personal with our our gentle horses and ponies. Experience the gentle nature of our horses and the joy of slower paced travel.

Upon your return enjoy a delicious cream tea with homemade jam, a generous dollop of clotted cream all on fresh homemade scones!

Camilla was the perfect host and made us feel really welcome. My daughter loved meeting all the horses and especially Louis the Labrador!! A great way to spend a family afternoon seeing the beautiful countryside and topped off with a yummy cream tea.

We enjoyed doing the horse and carriage trip, it made a nice change to do something different. The people were lovely and friendly and Hector and Hamish well behaved. The freshly cooked cream teas are a lovely touch after your trip.

A really awesome experience that was made all the more extra special by the attentiveness of the hosts in arranging a bottle of bubbly to enjoy on the trip! It was arranged as a little extra to add to the occasion of my new wife and I little break away after getting recently married and I honestly couldn't fault it. Great hosts, great location, the horses and getting to meet them all after and enjoy the insanely delicious cream tea means that we will probably be arranging to come back and stay on the B&B they also offer! A*** and thoroughly recommended.

We came to the Cotswolds as a last minute honeymoon destination and found Frank on Airbnb activity suggestions, we thought it would be a romantic and unique experience and it didn’t disappoint. Frank and Camilla were great hosts and extremely friendly. Camilla was able to cater to my dietary requirements and the homemade cakes were amazing! Their house is set in a beautiful location and we can’t wait to go back to stay in the B&B.
