Whether you are looking for a traditional farmhouse with equestrian facilities, or just looking for land and outbuildings for a hobby or business idea, we have it all below with our top six properties that we have simply fallen in love with from across the regions.

The perfect parade ring

Equestrian 1

With land extending to around 10 acres, we can just see a string of horses parading around the large internal courtyard before heading off for their daily exercise, and once back at home, how about relaxing those aching muscles in the outdoor swimming pool? With six bedrooms, the master with walk in wardrobe and en-suite, a huge country kitchen, beautiful conservatory, boot room and more, this wonderful family home really does offer the perfect lifestyle for anyone wanting the outdoor life.


A welcome retreat in Robin Hood country

You couldn’t be closer to the rural dream than living in a former dairy barn, and this one is just simply a perfect example of how vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork and original beams can look modern and homely at the same time. With its well-maintained outdoor menage, perfect for schooling and popping over a jump or completing a grand prix course, circa 4 acres of paddocks, stables and further outbuildings, this home is ready to move into and start living the equestrian dream.


Sweet valley high

Equestrian 3

The views from this property over the valley are breathtaking and the stables with arched doorways leading out onto a cobbled courtyard are just screaming out for the sound of horse shoes walking across them. This stunning home has so much to offer with a further livestock barn, outbuildings, three bedrooms and the most beautiful kitchen/diner, and the added advantage for further development, you really can lose yourself to the perfect country lifestyle in this unique hillside setting.


Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Who doesn’t wish for a lovely long gallop along the Welsh coastline on the beach, an outdoor ménage big enough for your own competitions, post and rail paddocks and a barn construction with galvanised steel stabling? Well, all this could be yours with this substantially reduced four bedroom detached house. With approximately four acres and the option to purchase a further three, what’s not to love? And if you are looking for a little slice of history, this property simply oozes it with the main building having been built around 1887 and the additional semi detached cottage constructed in 2002, if only the walls could talk!  


The opportunities are endless

Equestrian 5

With it’s sweeping paved driveway and paddocks to the front and back of this delightful five bedroom family home, you could be quite content looking over your very own sand school from your bedroom window. If horses are not your thing but dogs are, the four stables could be easily converted and there is the added delight of heated dog kennels, this property really does make for the perfect equestrian home or even a dog agility business! The opportunities are ripe with planning permission granted for a 50m x 22m arena and 60ft x 30ft equestrian stable block and CCTV available via negotiation. Plus, the views to the rear of the property are truly stunning!


Views as far as the eyes can see!

Equestrian 6

Wow, just take a look at the panoramic views of the Cheshire Hills, Staffordshire Moorlands and The Peak District National Park from this detached farm cottage. Even your horses will get to take in the view from the two detached timber stables standing within approximately 1.58 acres. The opportunities for hacking around the country lanes and across the countryside are endless and awe inspiring, which is why we are anticipating there will be considerable interest from our equestrian enthusiasts out there. Take a look, this property is bound to leave a lasting impression.
