The property is designed with simple, but tried and tested equestrian facilities. Completed within the last two years and to a very high standard. The entire yard has impeccable drainage and is very dry for a yard, showing at all levels the effort put into these facilities.

There are 10 stables of which 5 are block built with a tack/feed room and there are also 5 timber fronted stables on the south side. A further stable on the floor plan is used as a field shelter, which is currently next to the sand turn out paddock or lunging paddock, behind the ménage.

All the stables have mains electric lighting and water is piped to the tap outside stable 5 from the spring. There is flood lighting which covers the ménage, so schooling should not be a problem.

The ménage is 60m x 20m built for the purpose of dressage to music, with the South Westly short side full of 8 foot vertical mirrors. The ménage was only completed approximately 20 months ago and was professionally installed by 'Equestrian Surfaces Ltd' and so is in very good condition.

There are two turn out/ lunge paddocks, the sand topped one to the south is approximately 0.1 of an acre, approximately 13m by 24m, this is the paddock which has the summer shelter in currently.

The one to the north west of the stable block has a rubber base and measures approximately 0.06 of an acre, being about 17m by 11m.

To the South West of the stable block is a concrete panelled midden.

There are 5 fields around the property, the northern front field measures approximately 1.56 acres, this is on the right of the approach. The field to the left of the approach is approximately 3.14 acres and has the most amazing views to the east. The field to the south measures approximately 2.94 acres and backs onto the woodland, which leads directly onto a foot path 9-15-FP 5 and 9-2-FP-6, we have been told these are used by equestrians in the area. There is also bridle path 9-15-BW- 6 just out of the drive and turn right, on the right by Smithells Farm.

The fields have largely been post and rail fenced within the last two years and it has been maintained to a high standard.

The facilities are hard to come by in such good condition and need to be viewed to see the extent of the beauty surrounding the property.
