Our Visitor Centre at Coombe Park is just five minutes away from Totnes and is open to the public from the Easter Weekend to November 1st.

Tours of the yard are at 10:30, 11:30 and 1:30pm and last between half  an hour to an hour, with other activities throughout the day including Chester’s Trail and a guided walk around the beautiful fields of the centre.

At the Visitor Centre you’ll find our adoption horses as well as many ready to be rehomed, alongside:

      • large indoor and outdoor arenas
      • a café serving hot and cold snacks
      • gift shop
      • second hand tack shop

Parking is free and our staff will be only too happy to answer any questions.

We hold a number of events at Coombe Park, including our Unaffiliated Show Jumping Series (see picture below), Family Horse and Dog Show and Midsummer Ride, and we rent the arena to local groups where possible. If you are able to help us at any of these events please register your interest here.

Disabled access: There’s disabled parking in front of the arena. It is on a slope so if you have difficulties exiting your vehicle please alert a member of staff or ring us and we can direct you to a more level area.

Most public areas on the site are accessible to wheelchairs but the main car park and some of the field lanes have loose surfaces which may make pushing a wheelchair difficult. If you require assistance please ask a member of staff.

We look forward to welcoming you and would kindly ask that you keep to the following:

      • No dogs allowed except for guide dogs.
      • No smoking
      • Do not touch the horses unless a member of staff indicates it is safe to do so. Some of our horses have behavioural problems, some are wild – you won’t know which so please err on the side of caution.
      • All children must be supervised closely to ensure they and our horses are as safe as possible. All visitors must also be careful walking around behind horses as they can kick with no warning.
      • Please don’t litter. Not just because it means we have to pick it up, but a crisp packet can kill a horse if it gets caught in its windpipe or digestive system. Devon is beautiful, please help us to keep it that way.

Winter visits: Because we keep our horses in at night during the coldest months, there may not be any in the stables during the daytime – this is why we close our visitor centre for the season. If you’re interested in rehoming one of our horses please fill out a questionnaire and make an appointment first, and if you’re coming especially to see one horse always ring in advance to check they’re here.

Summer visits: It is worth mentioning that we turn some of our horses out into the fields at 3pm in the Summer, which means there may not be as many horses and ponies or staff available for the last hour. However, our cafe, gift shop and tack shop are all open until 4pm and there’s still lots to see and do.
