    Set within six acres of stunning gardens and grounds are Cringleford and The Smithy, a four-bedroom family home and a three-bedroom barn conversion.

    The property boasts an array of equestrian facilities, and is the only dwelling in the area to benefit from direct access onto Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that spans 17,000 acres.

    Included in the acreage are paddocks for grazing and a gallop track. The gallop runs around the edge of the property and takes you straight out onto Cannock Chase.

    There is an arena, which has a sand surface and is surrounded by post-and-rail fence. There are four stables and a tack room.

    The main house is a four-bedroom brick-built property with gardens to the front.

    At the heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen and dining space with underfloor heating complete with Aga and walk-in pantry, that extends to the garden room. From the boot room there is direct access to the stables and equestrian facilities.

    The barn conversation boasts three bedrooms. It was converted while the main house was being renovated over a decade ago.
