Set in 45 acres of beautiful Cheshire countryside, Folly Farm Equestrian Centre offers perfect hacking, yet this friendly and well respected BHS approved livery yard couldn't be more conveniently located. Set off the A49 near Tarporley, Folly Farm Equestrian Centre is easily and quickly accessed from the conurbations of Northwich, Kelsall, Middlewich, Winsford and Chester.
Leaving the main road, you quickly find yourself in an oasis of greenery that boasts exquisite hacking among open fields and woodland, a picturesque lake and a livery yard that puts horses' needs first.
If you can tear yourself away from Folly Farm Equestrian Centre's own fantastic facilities, The Whitegate Way with its quiet hacking along shady cuttings and sunny embankments is directly accessible on horseback from Folly Farm. Cheshire's largest area of woodland, Delamere Forest, is also close by and offers miles of off-road riding.
For the competitive rider, Folly Farm Equestrian Centre's extensive facilities include floodlit all weather schools, grass dressage arenas, sand gallops and a resident BHSII available for lessons. Kelsall Hill Equestrian Centre, which hosts BE events, is just two miles away, and Southview Competition and Training Centre is just a ten minute drive.
Folly Farm Equestrian Centre's owners, Lorraine and Kevin, work with a dedicated team of experienced and well qualified staff to offer full livery on a five or seven day basis, holiday livery and DIY livery for your horse that is second to none. The contented liveries at Folly farm Equestrian Centre enjoy year-round turn out on well maintained grazing, their own large stable on a peaceful yard, and the luxury of a hot wash box.
Owners are equally well looked after at Folly Farm Equestrian Centre. Facilities include a secure tack room, brew room and toilet. The dedicated staff will happily take some of the pressure off by arranging vet, dentist and farrier visits alongside the daily care of horses as part of the full livery service, and owners value the security provided by well-lit yards and car parks, a securely gated entrance and the knowledge that both owners and staff live on site.
