    There are eight acres of paddocks which are fenced by well-maintained post and rail. They feature automatic waters drinkers, hardcore standing in gateways and drainage channels which allows all-year-round turnout.

    There are two stable yards. The first yard has 10 large loose boxes, an office, a tack room, a grooming bay and a wash bay. The second has five loose boxes. All stables have rubber matting and automatic drinkers.

    Other horsey facilities include a 20x60m outdoor school, a five-bay horse walker, a storage barn and hard standing with enough room for a lorry.

    Welcome home! The house is a barn conversion which is surrounded by pretty gardens.

    The main house boasts generous family-sized living accommodation with state of the art features and it has been decorated with modernity in mind.

    There are currently five bedrooms and planning consent exists for the construction of 750 sq ft of further accommodation.

    Chill out after a long day at the yard in this pristine bathroom complete with oval bath…

    There is also an attractive static caravan on site, which overlooks the paddocks, with two double bedrooms, bathroom and an open plan kitchen/dining/living area, plus decking.
