Summerhouse Supports Local and Independent Business

Please find below a selection of local,  independent businesses that I have tried and tested over the years and found to offer high quality, friendly, professional and reasonably priced services! This page is updated regularly, so please check in again soon !   

This family run, very friendly and professional riding stables offers reasonably priced rides of varying lengths for all ages and abilities into the stunning scenery of Dartmoor National Park. The ride leaders are all very experienced and the horses and ponies are all very well trained, with different personalities and offer a safe and enjoyable ride. Whether it's as a special treat or a regular pass time, this is a great confidence builder for children and young people, supported by cheery and positive staff. No deposit is required to book a ride; they just ask that you let them know if you can't make it. To find out more, ask for Di or Donna. Tel 01822 810526
