Park Wood is a well established TB Stud of 150 acres with outstanding facilities located between Badminton and Westonbirt in the South Cotswolds. Modernised and redeveloped over the last 16 years, the farm has been the site for the breeding and rearing of bloodstock for both flat and NH racing for several generations. The setting is both tranquil and beautiful, with the all important benefit of free draining limestone soils to enable year round turn out. Large American Barns; a well designed foaling unit and a range of purpose built, immaculately fenced paddocks with mature trees and hedges, makes this an exceptional facility for racehorses. The Stud is owned by Mrs Ruth Pitman

Both Flat and NH spellers are welcome at the Stud and are given the rest and nutrition to return them to their trainers on top form.
"I boarded client's stock with PWS for rest and rehab and was delighted with the efforts of Ruth and her team. Attention to detail and care were second to none and I would have no hesitation in both using them again and in recommending them to others."
