Discover your world
Mare-B&B.com Places to stay with your horse. Ride to your next adventure.
Take your horse on a minibreak. Let us help you find amazing places.
Our mission is to connect horses with hosts… everywhere.
Here at Mare-B&B, we seek to create opportunities for adventure, for everyday horse-riders. Adventures that start on your doorstep and connect you to the wider world through the creation of a series of safe places to stay, with your horse.
The average horse rider (in the UK) seldom strays more than an hour or two from home. As our countryside becomes more urbanised many horse riders won’t take the risk of going further afield, and so the call of adventure goes unheard.
The bigger vision for Mare-B&B is to encourage horse travel, by bringing an added value to disused bridleways and horse safe tracks. Looking ahead safe off-road riding is a necessity if horse ownership for leisure is to remain a viable pursuit. With nowhere safe to ride the reality for many thousands of horse owners is to repeat the same circuits over and over, or to exercise their animals in an arena. If you don’t have an arena the options are limited.
By enhancing a local network of bridleways, byways and toll rides with horse-friendly B&B’s and campsites, overnight stays become possible. Landlocked bridleways that have fallen into disuse could open up once more as riders become able to travel further afield, enabled by landlords and hosts who would benefit from accommodating travellers. Transforming old disused routes into sources of revenue.
By reimagining this oldest and cleanest mode of transport, income opportunities become available for rural communities. Connecting neighborhoods, and ultimately encouraging safer riding places for horses and people.
