Highgrove House

If you are interested in horses, love dogs and cats and want to experience country life in a beautiful part of rural Shropshire please get in touch. We are quite remote but a railway station and supermarket are within walking distance. You will need strong, preferably waterproof footwear and warm clothing is advisable for the colder months

The work involved is mainly with the horses, handling them and caring for them on a day to day basis, it is outside in all weather and physical, although not excessively so. Experience is preferred but not entirely necessary as we are happy to help you learn as you go. Please remember horses are big, powerful, majestic animals. 😊 Riding is not involved. It can be wet, cold and muddy, it can also be stunningly beautiful and a wonderful place to be. We work as a team. You will be living as one of the family.

When I arrived, I immediately felt at home! Terri and Andi are so nice and friendly, everything was simple and pleasant.
  I had my own room and working was not really complicated. Caring for horses was soothing to me. The dogs and cats were also very funny ^^
  It was totally as I expected (even better!)!

  It was an incredible experience and I thank you again! I hope to have another opportunity to return one day!

  I recommend!!




Fue una experiencia increíble, nos sentimos siempre en familia.
Aprendimos mucho acerca de los caballos, su alimentación y cuidado.
Tanto Terri como Andy y la familia son grandes personas.😊😊
Muy felices de haber tenido la oportunidad de estar con ellos disfrutando de la naturaleza!!!😍😍
Por siempre agradecidos!!!🤗🤗




The truly perfect Worldpackers experience
The work with the horses is not really hard just a bit repetitive some times
But you will love the horses ( and the 5 dogs 😍)
The food is amazing you will never be disappointed I can promise you that haha
I felt at home the whole time, everyone is really nice
The town is really beautiful but you have to keep in mind that is really small
So you have to find ways to entertain yourself
And you can always a travel and explore Uk in your free days
I highly recommend it
And I hope I’ll go back soon
Thanks Terry & Andy for everything




My first experience in worldpackers, and it was the best. Terri and her family are amazing, they made you feel like home and they are lovely. The work is not that hard. The food is great. One experience that I will remember forever.




Was my first worldpackers experience and I really recommend!!! Terri and Andy are amazing, house is so good and comfortable, I felt at home definitely. Work is a bit hard in the first days, especially if you never take car of horses, but Terri is always teaching you. Lovely family and lovely stay!
