Located in St John, this original granite farmhouse sits on the island of Jersey, which is the largest of the Channel Islands situated between England and France. St John is on the northern side of the island, around 7.3km north of St Helier. There are several flights between Jersey and mainland Britain, and if you fly from Gatwick, you can expect to arrive onto the island in around an hour. You can also get the ferry from the mainland to Jersey, with the Poole to St Helier route taking around four hours.
Local equestrian centres include BSJA Jersey (6km), Haie Fleurie (9km) and Greencliff Equestrian Centre (9km).
New Era Veterinary Hospital (10km) is just 15 minutes from the front door. If hunting is your thing, you can head out with the Jersey Drag.
