We run a busy friendly equine training and livery yard based in the beautiful Shropshire hills. We require someone to muck in and muck out 😀 A huge variety of horses from serious competition horses who show jump, event and do pure dressage to youngsters and happy hackers. We do require a little experience but are happy to teach anyone wanting to expand their knowledge and expertise.Learn more

It was my first worldpacker experience and it was an excellent journey.
I brought a huge luggage with me. Fortunately, Andy picked me up at the train station and introduced a lot to me during the way to his house, which really released my stress and embarrasses. He is a good cooker too. Since I am their first Asian worldpacker, Terri also asked me my preference of food when I arrived. They tried their best to make me at home. Through the daily work with Terri, Phili, Jess and Emily, I really respect their perseverance and enthusiasm of their dreams. I LOVE living and working with them.
It was my first time, but I couldn't be in a better place. Everything was fantastic.
Starting with the family Terri is an adorable person all the time being so kind and lovely with me and of course with the animals. Andy is such a good chef his food was all time spetacular and he was always asking if i needed something. Phili and Cris are so nice, the contact that I had with them was very memorable. Jess and Emily are an example of people who really love what they do. I learnt so many things with them.
I am very happy that I could have this amazing experience with them.
Highgrove House was my first experience as a backpacker and I really want to recommend it! I Have had a very beautiful time there, being in touch with the nature and learning about English culture was my main aim, and they have definitely made it happen. Terry and Andy were very invinting and familiar, all their pets were lovely and playful especially Cody:) And what to say about the horses! I was in love with all of them, I have learnt loads of things related with them and my dream came true! Thanks for everything, definitely I want to come back someday.
This was my first Worldpackers experience and I am so happy that I picked Highgrove. Terri and her family are so inviting and lovely, and treated me with so much kindness and care. They felt like my second family and I was so comfortable and happy in their home. The horses are absolutely beautiful, and taking care of them was as rewarding as it was fun. Their dogs and cats are the sweetest you will ever meet and I adored spending my time with them, particularly Pod! If you want a Worldpackers experience that you never want to leave from, I highly recommend Highgrove. ❤️
