Do you think Bunny Hall is worth hopping over to see?
Set in 14.5 acres of land, the equestrian set up currently has five timber-built stables, which are set upon a concrete yard. There is also a 20x80m outdoor arena with an all-weather surface, so you can ensure your training is on point all year round.
Outside you will also find this full-sized all-weather tennis court with flood lighting and a pavilion set to the side.
This is the house, a magnificent renovated Grade I listed country home. It dates back from the early 18th Century and was designed by Sir Thomas Parkyns.
The principal reception rooms lie to the south of the house and have glorious views over the restored gardens and over the countryside surrounding the property.
The five principal reception rooms include the orangery, kitchen, principal drawing room, dining room and library.
The leisure complex has a key coded access from the staircase hall. There are two separate changing rooms, a steam room, a sauna and a heated indoor pool with electric controlled pool cover with an aspect out onto the rear courtyard and gardens.
There are some awe-inspiring formal gardens set close to the house with ornamental water features.
