Meet the animals

Say hello to our mischievous pygmy goats Jack and Ben.With 60 acres of countryside at Duckhaven Stud, we have plenty of room for our friendly farm animals and pets. From our clutch of cheeky rescue hens to our magnificent horses, we're sure you'll love getting acquainted with our furry and feathery friends.

Duckhaven Stud is a former thoroughbred racing yard, and many famous horses were bred and trained here it is still home to many of our beloved retired racehorses (and a few others who a have joined us along the way). You'll often see the horses grazing in the fields, but they'll trot over to greet you if you wait patiently. Our racehorses are now in training with professional West Country Racehorse Trainer Jimmy Frost. Let us know if you are interested in horse racing and we will be delighted to chat with you and share our knowledge of upcoming races.

We have been awarded the Official COVID-19 secure mark for our high standards in cleaning.

We got married here last year and returned this summer for our first anniversary.  I can not justify in words how wonderful this place is.

We loved our stay, the cottage has stylish decor and furnishings and its right on the South West Coastal footpath with wonderful views, great for early morning and late evening walks to see the sunrise and sunset.
