An excellent stables. Due to work and regular house moves my family and I have ridden at many stables around the country (and around the world), Cholwell Stables is up there with the best. The staff were excellent and the horses were great, they obviously love the freedom they get on the moor, no plodding round a riding school here!... More

A great experience for my three children (two over 18!). Well organised both before and at the stables and can only praise the whole team for providing a special ride on a gloriously sunny winters day. Thank you.

We arrived early and were offered a cup of tea and a biscuit. The owners could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. As part of our honeymoon we decided to go horse riding, but while I have moderate level of previous riding experience, my husband had only been on a pony once when he was 11... But the staff...

A very well run stables with 36 horses that caters for all abilities from my wife who is an experienced rider and did a 2 hour trek over Dartmoor to the 3 year old granddaughter who had a guided walk on a Shetland pony. The definite bonus is the location, with a gate straight from the stables onto Dartmoor itself

We can't thank Cholwell stables enough for a brilliant hour spent on Dartmoor yesterday! It was something I had always wanted to do! Adam (who had never ridden before) and I (who rides twice a week) thought we'd book a ride. The staff were brilliant and so friendly. They made sure everyone in the group got the most out of...

I hadn't ridden for many years and having tried various stables I was lucky enough to find Cholwell and what a find it was! Donna and the team provide a truly bespoke service; the horses are well presented, well cared for and exceedingly well mannered and I couldn't believe it when an Australian guest asked if we could all line...
