Hill Farm is positioned in the centre of the Somerset village of Burtle, approximately 10 miles north east of Bridgwater and the M5, 16 miles from Taunton and 20 miles south of Bristol. Burtle village is a thriving local community. Café Burtle provides the opportunity to catch up with friends and some of the many local groups have pages on the Burtle website. The recently re-opened public house and hotel is proving very popular. The Village Hall provides the opportunity to get together and many of the activities in the village take place here.

Hill Farm provides most activities the equestrian could require, but further afield and within easy distance are the courses at Pontispool, Taunton and Stockland Lovell at Bridgwater. Along with the facilities listed on site is the new link with Equine Therapy, Riding for the Disabled, , Somerset Sports, British Horse Society and British Equestrian Federation. The meeting and training rooms allow for lectures from local professionals and in-house training for staff.
