Group Themed Breaks

Available all year round

All of our themed breaks below are open to everyone; individuals, families, groups and schools. If you are bringing a group of 10 or more people we also offer the option of adding a 'theme' to your break at any time of year, from fishing, art, or photography to pirates and history, or any other theme you can think of!

Following guidance from multiple equine experts, we have reviewed the maximum weight limits for guests doing horse riding and carriage driving.

This means that you may no longer be able to take part in these activities, even if you have previously undertaken them here with us. We are really sorry if we can no longer offer you this experience with our horses, however we hope you will understand that we want to look after the welfare of our horses, as well as providing the best possible experience for our guests.

If this affects you and you would like to discuss it further please call us on 01598 763221.


Please note the following conditions apply to our Horse Weekends: 

- We can accommodate up to a maximum of 4 wheelchair users who cannot transfer out of their chairs per course. Chair users who cannot transfer will not be able to ride horses, but will be able to ride in our accessible carriages.

- Powered and non-standard wheelchairs may not fit in our carriages; if you are unable to transfer to a standard manual chair you may not be able to participate.

- For horse riding, if you are unable to mount using a method we consider to be safe, we can assist with a hoist mount system instead. 

-  Some medical conditions may mean a guest is unable to ride a horse; in these circumstances carriage driving may be offered as an alternative option.

Carers Breaks

At Calvert Trust Exmoor we recognise the amazing work that many Carers do, and we realise that from time to time we all need a break, to relax, recharge, and come back raring to go!


With that in mind, throughout the year we organise a number of carers breaks, where carers can take a break from their day to day responsibilities, and enjoy themselves, in a supportive environment in an area of outstanding natural beauty.


You can find more information about our carers breaks on the carers breaks page.


Call us on 01598 763221 or email to book any of our themed breaks.

"Thank you to all the Calvert Staff for a wonderful week. The food and accommodation were amazing. All the instructors did a brilliant job - you were wonderful with our students and took time to get to know them and tailor their experiences appropriately - they have all got so much out of it and can't wait to come again next year.."
