What you'll do

When you arrive at Greenbank Farm, high on a hill in the Cartmel Valley with the most stunning views, we will introduce you to each of the horses in the paddock outside the farmhouse then show you around the yard enclosed by historical Grade II listed stone barns. We will then take you up to the stables that are restricted and not open to the general public. You will meet our stunning Friesian horses in the stables, ones getting ready for work and in the turnout areas. If possible, you will get to stroke their beautiful silky black noses and spend time chatting to them. We do have a rogue Shetland pony called JB who won't want to miss out on all the attention! The team member showing you around will tell you a little about each horse and if you're lucky you may get to see one or two being schooled in the outdoor arena. If you are up to it, a wander down the road to one of our fields where we keep most of the horses in a herd will be on the agenda - bring wellies!

Learn more about Kit

Kit

I have lived around these beautiful black Friesian horses for nearly a year now and have come to love their kind, friendly and full of character personalities. I help daily on the farm with mucking out and assisting with these wonderful creatures and I have learnt a huge amount about them, their breeding and the Friesian breed in general. Every day I gain more knowledge as Greenbank Farm is the top specialist of Friesian horses in the UK.

Where you'll be

Greenbank Farm is home to a B&B, Farmhouse holiday rental and first-of-its-kind glamping experience: Stable Stays, where you can sleep in a stable with one of our beautiful friendly Friesian horses! The equestrian centre is not open to the general public and the horses can only be ridden by experienced riders who have been vetted and booked in advance; the Meet the Horses tour does not include any riding experience.
