    Set in 2.03 acres, there are two seperate training yards. Dating back to 1883, the main traditional stable yard consists of 12 boxes to the front and three loose boxes to the rear. Under a clock tower is a central passage from the front to the rear of the building, where there is a tack room, drying room, feed room and cloakroom.

    The new yard has 23 loose boxes, two feed rooms, a tack room, haystore, horsewalker and muck heap. There is also a hard-standing area — which was once a tennis court — with six timber-built stables.

    The main house is a substantial period property, arranged over three floors with nine bedrooms in total. It is constructed of red brick elevations under a slate roof with tall chimneys with spiral stonework. As well as this property, there is also a three-bedroom flat and a bungalow for additional accomodation.

    The main house has a reception hall with large ornate staircase and formal well-proportioned reception rooms.

    Outside you will find large established grounds, as well as a heated outdoor pool.
