It is true to say that this is one of the most spectacularly beautiful regions of the country, with its large pastures and rolling hills. Yet its location offers much more convenient access to other parts of the country than most of our National Parks. So it is not surprising that many see it as the ultimate centre of excellence for the equine world, and this stud farm is nestled in the heart of its environment, with several prestigious stables and liveries nearby. The owners, who have many years’ experience in breeding and caring for horses, purchased this farm ten years ago, since which time they have considerably enhanced and developed the facility to provide a caring and efficient environment for horses. Sitting on circa forty acres of land (additional land is rented from local farmers) it boasts twenty eight indoor, purpose built stables. The main stables were constructed in period, reclaimed, hand-made Cheltenham bricks, recovered from an old Cheltenham town house being demolished. Both this and the other set of stables and the main barn have cavity walls to provide an ambient temperature for animals when not out to graze in surrounding meadows. Each stable has its own independent water supply, plus a design concept to enable convenient access for tractors and to hay barns when feeding. Among the many other facilities available is a large schooling area, plus horse wash down facilities. The enclosed paddocks are surrounded by tall traditional hedges which, with the addition of field shelters, provide both shade and shelter. The Whitsun Brook runs through the end meadows. There is also an old orchard which not only can be grazed, but provides a good crop of Bramley apples, much loved by the animals.
The owners have also obtained planning permission for a well-designed, single or one & half storey-dwelling to be erected on the land, which would provide well-proportioned, spacious accommodation, the floor plan detailed herewith is for a single story dwelling which is their preferred option and is in line with the outline planning consent. There is also scope for future development of the farm.
This well established stud farm, with its outstanding facilities, has the distinct advantage of being surrounded by idyllic countryside with miles of bridleways, yet with convenient access on to major roads and motorways for journeys to racecourses, such as Cheltenham, Worcester, Stratford, Warwick and Wolverhampton. Also nearby are equestrian facilities for all types of equestrian sporting events, some of the better known are the 3 Counties Show at Malvern, Solihull Riding Club, Gracelands, Hartpury, Wales & West, Allens Hill, Moors Farm, Corse Lawn, and Stone House to name a few plus there are many riding clubs in the area.
The local hunts are Worcestershire, West Warwick, Croome, and the Cotswold and are well supported and keen point to point supporters providing additional outlets for thoroughbred sales.
