Driving Courses - Training courses for drivers to experience and learn a large variety of skills at all levels with their own horses or those at Higher Biddacott.

Training Horses  - Training horses and ponies for riding and draft purposes, as a single in shafts or as pairs or teams on a pole. Roadwork, forestry and agricultural experience given.

Wagon Rides - Enjoy a relaxing ride aboard a comfortable wagon drawn by two or four Shire Horses through North Devon's picturesque countryside in the parish of Chittlehampton.

Bed and Breakfast - Wake up to a view of rolling Devon countryside, a scrumptious breakfast and the sound of Shire horses going out to work on a traditional working farm. Biddacott's medieval farmhouse provides log fires and a plasterwork ceiling.

Weddings - Horsedrawn weddings available with a beautiful black, double hooded Landau pulled by a matching pair of stunning black Shires.

Funerals - Horsedrawn funerals available using a genuine Victorian hearse pulled by a pair or four black Shires complete with plumes.

Location in Devon - Situated in the beautiful North Devon countryside with its rolling hills, quiet Devon lanes and an abundance of wildlife. Exceptionally peaceful, it is ideal for holidays and short breaks. Exmoor, Tarka country and beautiful coastline are all close yet only 3hrs from London.
