Luxury holidays for you and your horse in the Yorkshire Dales National Park

Bring your horse to Stonetrail in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and discover one of the best off road riding locations in the UK. With miles of safe off road hacking routes straight from our gate, luxury accommodation and spa facilities, you can enjoy a perfect holiday for you and your horse.

We are a small and friendly professionally run yard specialising in holidays and courses for horse owners where you can be assured of a warm welcome and our expert advice on the local tracks and trails. You can choose to self guide with one of our easy to follow route maps (no charge) or hire an expert guide to help you explore tracks and trails you may not otherwise discover. Situated on the fellside, our gates lead directly onto several bridleways and open common where you can enjoy quiet hacks to the pub, picnic rides in hidden valleys and exhilarating canters along lovely wide green lanes. It’s a perfect holiday.

For Riders

We have a choice of 5 luxury adjoining properties and spa room which have been beautifully converted from a range of stone barns to form a delightful courtyard setting in a truly private setting at the foot of Wild Boar fell. Originating from the 16th century, our properties offer a wonderful blend of original features and contemporary interiors with oak beams, wood burning stoves, power showers and crisp white linen. With no immediate neighbours and an elevated position at the end of a private track, our properties enjoy uninterrupted views from the gardens across the valley where you can sit and enjoy a drink in the evening watching your horse graze in the paddock. Within the courtyard is our spa room which has a hot tub, a perfect treat after your ride each day.

A continental breakfast pack can be provided on arrival and packed lunches are available. Each property has its own fully-equipped kitchen so you can choose to cater for yourself or dine out at one of several award winning inns close by, our nearest is just a 10 min walk away where our guests receive a 10% discount on food orders.

Trail Riding Holidays in the Yorkshire Dales National Park

Welcome to Stonetrail.  We are a BHS highly acclaimed Riding Holiday Centre with direct access from our gate to some of the best off road riding routes in the UK.

Over the last 10 years, we have expertly led hundreds of riders across some of the most beautiful parts of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales helping to make wonderful holiday memories. Many of our riders return year after year knowing they will receive the highest standard of care and attention from the experienced and friendly team at Stonetrail.

We have a wonderful team of cob type horses who are easy to ride, forward going and safe. All our trail rides are managed by Alison & Colin Muir, the owners, and supported by a well organised team of staff to ensure you have a fun, safe and memorable experience.

Our choice of trail rides for 2017 are:

For riders who have learnt to ride and who are cantering in an arena we recommend our 2 day Lady Anne Trail Ride or our Eden Valley Trail ride. These are ideal choices if you are planning your first trail ride, if you are returning to riding or if you have had a loss of confidence.  

For riders who are more confident and who have experience of trail riding we recommend our 3 day Westmorland Trail Ride, our 3 day Pennine Bridleway Trail and our 4 day Orton Fells Trail Ride.   

Our website has full details, dates and many photographs of our past rides. Alison is always on hand to chat through our ride choices and help you make the right choice.
