    The property is privately situated off a road and the equestrian centre and house are accessed via a gated gravel driveway. The equestrian facilities are well designed and offer lots of scope for extension and development.

    There is an L-shaped block of stables with concrete yard containing five loose boxes, wash bay, large tack/day room, large feed room, laundry room and W/C. The yard is centred around an all-weather turnout pen. The hay and storage barn is accessible from the yard and this also enjoys full vehicular access with covered parking for a lorry or trailer.

    There are a number of other useful timber outbuildings, a lunge pen and 20x50m rubber and sand arena with plenty of hardstanding for parking. There is further potential for an additional all-weather turnout area adjacent to the arena (surface is already in place). The land totals 11.9 acres and there are eight fenced paddocks with mains water and electric fencing.

    Welcome to Wildbrook House, which was built by the current vendors in 1994 and is subject to a business tie to Barkway Equestrian. The house has its own access from the main drive and sits handily to the south east of the equestrian facilities.

    At ground level you will find a kitchen/breakfast room with marble tile floors and plenty of space for the whole family.

    There are four bedrooms in total, including a principle bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room. The three additional double bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.
