Charlotte’s home is at Corndonford Farm Poundsgate Newton Abbot TQ13 7PP and is about a 15 minute drive from the A38 at Ashburton into the heart of the Moor. The farm is a typical small hill farm of small fields bounded by stone walls in the lee of Corndon Tor and with an ancient Dartmoor longhouse at its heart. There are always a large number of ponies on and around Corndonford being cared for and trained for their new homes by Charlotte and her team. Choose from one of these options for your visit: the final programme will depend on the time of year and weather conditions and can be individually tailored to suit your requirements.

Dinner of local Dartmoor fare for your party (ask for our menu options and prices) or have supper booked for you at a local pub and allow us to transport you there and back. Delicious full Dartmoor breakfast before you start the day’s programme above.
Why not stay another night and have another day’s experience or a longer pony drive across the moor if you haven’t had enough?
If you want to stay longer or bring a partner who is more interested in mountain biking, walking, kayaking, sailing or maybe just sitting in the peace of the summerhouse with a book, give us a call to plan your individual requirements.
