Burley Villa has its own B&B, Bashley House, on the southern edge of the New Forest, offering a quiet base for  relaxing riding breaks in the New Forest National Park. The Beech  and Maple rooms are en-suite, with continental breakfast served in the room. Guest bedrooms are on the ground floor and have televisions and  tea and coffee facilities as we do not offer a guest lounge.  Bashley House is a short walk from our local Rising Sun Inn, a comfortable family pub, overlooking the New Forest, which serves good, hot food all day. B&B prices are from £85 per room per night.

We also offer short riding breaks which start at £115 per person for a one night stay with a 2 hour Forest Trail in western saddle ( based on 2 sharing a double en suite ). As always, beginners are welcome.


One Night Break – 1 nights B&B accommodation, 2 hr group forest trail on 1 day – £115 pp
One Night Break – 1 nights B&B accommodation, 2 hr group forest trail on 2 days – £190 pp
Two Night Break – 2 nights B&B accommodation, 2 hr group forest trail on 2 days – £230 pp

2 hour Forest Trails are in western saddle at a gentle walk and jog pace and are suitable for beginners. The rides start in the arena with a short session to settle you on your trusty steed and to cover a few of the basics  before riding out. On the forest we will usually ride out over the forest greens  amongst the wild ponies and foals and then on into the forest woodlands where you may well be lucky and spot one of the many herds of wild deer or the other animals and birds that thrive in this wonderful National Park.

Prices are per person based on 2 sharing a double en suite. Single occupancy supplement is £20 per night.

If you want a different sort of riding break maybe with lessons and forest rides then I will be very pleased to try and help if you contact me with details of what you are looking for.

Please add £20 per night for single occupancy 10% off additional rides or lessons.)
