Field Farm Stud is a superb opportunity to take on and potentially grow an established equestrian business. It offers a discrete position tucked away from the main thoroughfare yet providing good access to the motorway networks of the M4 and M5. It has provided good commercial income for the current owners in various forms including its former use as a stud and current use as a commercial livery. It has excellent level land in a ring fence of about 55 acres with a variety of interlinking fields. The current owners turn out on the land year round.

The principal house known as 'Tallet' is a former barn which has been converted into a pleasant 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property which has permission to be extended. The house itself has a lovely courtyard and gardens surrounding it.

There are two further buildings within the grounds which are currently used as offices but could, subject to necessary permissions, be used for independent accommodation or property lets. They are currently structured as an open plan kitchen/dining area with first floor room and independent bathrooms. Both properties have their own access and facilities.

The two main outbuildings are both of excellent quality. One houses the established equestrian facility. This building is portal steel framed, with 12 good quality purpose built boxes of steel and wood construction, all inward facing and many with external windows. The centre of the building is used for the various store rooms, lockable tack room, feed room, and has a useful utility room plumbed for washers and dryers and an indoor horse washroom with hot and cold running water. It is well lit with security lighting and main beam halogen lighting, it also has two vehicular accesses. The second large building, again portal framed construction, was originally built as a hanger for a former owners helicopters, it has a concrete base, independent water supply and could have a number of other uses. It is accessed via either the pedestrian door or large electric roller shutter.

There is a large yard of dressed concrete which has space for a number of vehicles complete with discrete vehicular storage which is again floodlit. As previously mentioned there is an electric horse walker for four horses and a floodlit arena with an 'Andrew Bowen' surface which is 60mx30m.

The land has been split into a number of rotational but interlinked paddocks all stock proofed with either mature hedging, post and rail or post and wire fencing. There are a number of ditches that criss-cross the land ensuring good drainage which allows the owner to turn the horses out year round.
