hill farm

Hill Farm Stables is a long-established Livery Yard which is small enough to care yet big enough to cope. We aim to offer a first class service for both horse and owner in a happy and friendly environment. This BHS approved and commended livery yard is set in 260 acres of rolling Hertfordshire farmland, yet is only 17 miles from Hyde Park Corner and within easy reach of the M1, A1(M) and M25 motorways. The yard offers a full livery service, but we do have occasional vacancies for 5 Day and DIY owners.
