Hi all - I'm moving to Manchester this summer and need to find a full livery place, ideally between Bolton/Warrington and Manchester, or not too far from that zone. Would be looking for full livery with turnout, hacking and a decent arena. As I'm not from the North West I don't know any of the yards in that area and would be very grateful for any suggestions at all to check out! Would be willing to travel for the right yard so please throw any ideas my way - thanks so much :)

All big places so you may need to be a bit more specific in your search. Manchester to Warrington in rush hour times is a nightmare and Warrington is a long way from Manchester itself, so may not be particularly practical. I would suggest a call to naylors equestrian to see if they will tell you what is on their notice board for livery around Manchester. Depends entirely on where in Manchester you will be as the last thing you will want is a yard on the opposite side to where you live as the traffic can be a nightmare. If you prefer pm me and I will try to suggest areas if I can that you may want to look at that won't be miles away.

Thank you so much! Will definitely follow up with Naylors as you suggest. I will be working in Bolton, living west Manchester so was thinking anywhere in that zone out to the west of Manchester ideally - croft, irlam, culcheth, glazebury way maybe? Long term though may be moving - quite possibly to be nearer the horse - so for now am looking at any suggestions that aren't entirely crazy. I am currently a 45 min drive from my yard so am used to a fair hike!

Matchington Farm and Reed House Farm are in Dunham, so between Manchester and Warrington - close to the Trans-Pennine Trail for hacking, both have floodlit arenas (Reed House has two), and both have year-round turnout (although it does get reduced in winter).

There's also Mosslands Farm in Irlam, but I don't know that one personally.

Can't speak for Irlam, but I'd avoid Reed House like the plague, especially as Matchington (literally next door) is lovelier, cleaner and fully BHS approved. Mary Marsh's yard between Irlam and Warrington is probably the best equipped yard in the whole area, but it's (understandably) a bit pricey and the hacking could be better.

Reed House has nice enough facilities but not enough grazing and its poor quality ground too. A friend of mine kept hers there and had to put hay out all year round. I thought the fencing was not exactly the best either. Bear in mind that alot of the hacking around that area is one-way and you would have to turn around and come back which may not suit everyone either. The lanes around can be right rat-runs and tempting for young men driving too fast around the bends to test their skills. Oh and the travellers come visiting regularly too.
