  • Description


    I run a small Livery yard between 6-8 horses in a Obidos. I am English living in Portugal 6 years.
    I'm now currently pregnant living with my partner and due to have the baby in the end of September.
    The farm is a very nice relaxed place set in a great location situated ten minutes from the beach and ten minutes to the historical town of Obidos with all local amenities.
    We have a nice group of people that come to the farm to visit there horses or for kids lessons.
    Access to public transport in the next village which is with 10mins walking distance.
