Det skal I lave

Meet your host at the entrance to Middle Week Farm. Walk across our farmyard & enter the Horse Barn where you will meet our draught horses, Albert, George & Bella. The horse(s) being used for your horse and carriage ride will already be harnessed. We encourage guests to interact with our wonderful horses, but if you prefer, you can watch from a distance while I explain how we use them on our farm.

For two guests we normally use one horse, but for more than two we use a pair of horses to ensure that the load is an easy one. The welfare of our horses is very important to us & we are proud of their turnout & condition.

The carriage is comfortable but open to the elements & it can be cold, so make sure you bring warm & weatherproof clothing & an umbrella. You are welcome to take photographs at any time during the experience.

Once we are hitched up you are invited to climb aboard the carriage & we begin your trip back in time to a gentler age. The route we take travels through the peaceful countryside surrounding our farm.

During the ride I will normally share some local history, & give you some insights into our way of life, but if you want peace & quiet we can do that to! We can often adjust timings & numbers to suit your party, just message us to request changes.

We hope you leave us with a real sense of calm & of having journeyed back in time.

I am a horse drawn farmer who uses 3 draught horses to work our small farm in beautiful North Devon. We do not have modern machinery or tractors, just heavy horses & mostly Amish made or bygone era equipment. We believe in managing the land in traditional ways, in living a plain & simple life, & in working with nature not against it.

I have a passion for working horses and use them in their traditional role on our small farm. I first worked with horses as a teenager on a Mennonite farm in the U.S.A., 40+ years later I still keep faith with these miracles of nature.

We believe this experience offers our guests a unique insight into a traditional way of life that in many parts of the UK has been almost entirely lost.

Your support helps keep us afloat and preserves a timeless rhythm of life, far removed from modernity.

Her skal du være

The experience begins & ends at 'Middle Week Horse Drawn Services'. During the experience we visit the beautiful North Devon Countryside surrounding our farm. Glorious rolling hills, tiny lanes, & wonderful tranquil views envelope you in a peaceful rural setting reminiscent of a bygone age.

Our pricing is set to just cover the costs of maintaining our horses, equipment and carriages, not to make us a fortune.

An amazing experience- Stuart has such wonderful knowledge, I could listen to him all day.. We had such a great time! George & Albert are beautiful horses, and I have never seen horses so well trained- a fantastic experience, and also left slightly in awe of Stuart's way of life, and life experiences... Thankyou so much for not just making our day, but making our holiday!! Jordan thoroughly enjoyed it, and Sharon loved the whole experience.. Thankyou again 👍🐴

This was such a wonderful experience, my Granddaughters are still talking about how wonderful they found their time. The Suffolk Punch horses are staggeringly beautiful and so gentle. We will be coming back next year as the girls really want to drive the trap again. Stuart was fascinating and I feel he is one of the most in tune farmers I have ever met, and I’m a Somerset girl. I recommend this experience to anyone.

The whole experience was fantastic from start until the finish. Stuart was extremely hospitable, knowledgeable and friendly. My daughters aged 13 and 10 have openly said that it’s one of the best things that they’ve ever done. George, Arthur, Bella and Moss were delightful horses and we loved being around them. 100% would recommend.

Amazing experience. BOOK NOW, you will NOT regret it! Simply incredible. Lovely ride. Stuart looked after us really well and couldn't have been nicer. He was fantastic with the children too, explaining things, giving some history of the area and the experience, and letting them take it in turns to ride up front.

The best experience we have ever had. Stuart is amazing and one of the nicest people you could meet. Nothing was too much trouble and he is so informative. Could not have wished for anything for more. Made our son Aedans birthday memorable and our day magical. His horses are truly magnificent and a credit to him. We would gladly book again and again and again. Thank you so much for everything today and it was lovely to meet you, Albert and George.

This was a most wonderful experience. I loved every minute of it. Stuart was an amazing host and I really liked the way he treated Bella, his horse. She obviously trusted him completely and his gentle and kind treatment of her was a joy to see. His outlook on life and the world is so unique these days and it was an interesting and thought provoking morning. We felt transported into his life where he was at one with his animals and surroundings. We met people along the way that he knew and it felt like we knew them too. I wish we could have stayed longer and helped to wash Bella down but I had to get my daughter to an appointment. The experience is something for everyone to enjoy, whether you are a horse enthusiast or not. Simply wonderful. Thank you so much Stuart and Bella.
