- Horse riding in the Cheviots


See this link for information on horse riding in the Cheviots.

My daughter only went to Shipley Lane once for a riding party - she actually learnt to ride at Townfoot Stables in Shilbottle, screenshot of their website below.  The Village Farm Health Club and Spa are a few minutes up the road.

You can ride on the beach with Slate Hall at Seahouses.

Shipley Lane Equestrian Centre is just outside Alnwick.  An extract below from the website http://www.visitnorthumberland.com/activities/shipley-lane-equestrian-centre-p70661
