If you’ve got a spare £5million lying around, why not re-locate to the Hampshire/West Sussex border, as a country estate has just come on the market, and it’s all kinds of perfect…
Bobbolds Farm is nestled in unspoilt countryside to the south of the village of Milland, just 50 miles from London.
The area itself is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within the South Downs National Park. Serious hacking goals.
If you fancy spectating for a weekend, there is racing at Goodwood, or perhaps a spot of polo at Cowdray or Hurtwood Park.
Equestrian centres within easy reach include, Crofton Manor (30 miles), Woodside EC (31 miles) and Wellington EC (32 miles).
Hunting in the area is with the South Downs Bloodhounds or the South Downs and Eridge Hunt.
If you like to show, get signed up to your local showing area BSPS Area 14 for a range of local fixtures.
Make sure you check out the National Trail website, which has all the information you need about riding out and enjoying the South Downs on horseback.
Offered for sale by Knight Frank, the 24 acre property is currently on the market for a cool £4.95million.
