Introduction - An opportunity to acquire a fabulous equestrian complex set in 29.561 acres (11.963 ha) of rolling South Leicestershire countryside. The site provides 2 linked bungalows, a 60m x 25m outdoor school, 22 fenced 1 acre paddocks, farm buildings and some fine views.

Vendors Comments - Potters Kiln Farm is a lovely family home with an attached two-bedroom annex that, within its 29.561 acres (11.963 ha) of grounds, incorporates excellent equestrian facilities. The property occupies an enviable position in the Leicestershire countryside, and is just a stones throw from the well-served villages of Stoney Stanton and Croft.

Ive always had a passion for horses, says Caroline, and I wanted to run a livery business, and Potters Kiln Farm incorporated everything that I needed. So, we bought the property eight years ago, at which time the house and yard was in need of some TLC, and so we completely renovated it. We did everything from putting in a new heating system and replacing windows, to updating the bathrooms, and we even knocked through from the kitchen to the dining room to create a lovely open plan kitchen diner, which is a lovely space and where we tend to spend most of our time. Outside the whole stable yard has undergone a transformation to stables, feed rooms with a new larger school, lunging pen and complete fencing. It has been an ideal set up for us which is close enough to plentiful local amenities and lots of potential business opportunities.

In 2008 we added a two-bed annex, continues Caroline, which my mother and father-in-law currently live in. It can either be accessed through the house or from a separate entrance, and it even has its own garden that my mother has beautifully landscaped; its like a little woodland glen. Both the main house and the annex have their own, separate driveways too. So the annex is an ideal family share, but it would also be perfect for letting.

Potters Kiln Farm boasts over 29 acres of land, which incorporates a number of paddocks, 22 stables, 3 barns and a schooling arena. This has been the perfect base for my livery business, says Caroline, and it also provides a wonderful lifestyle for our children. In terms of the horses its a lovely place for riding and were close to three major competition centres, Vale View, Witham and Western Lawns, but although the location is rural we have never felt isolated as its so easy to get around. Stoney Stanton, which is just a couple of minutes away, has a great selection of shops and amenities, and nearby Croft has the same. Were also within easy reach of both the M69 and the A5, although neither impact on the peaceful nature of our environment.

I have to say that we have all been extremely happy here, concludes Caroline. Its our own piece of England and it has given all of us a wonderful quality of life.

Location - Potters Marston is a small village and civil parish within the district of Blaby in Leicestershire. It has a population of around 40, and is roughly between Huncote and Stoney Stanton, but closest to Croft. It has a view of the remaining side of croft quarry and has 12 houses. St Mary the Virgin is one of Leicestershires smallest churches, being only 38ft long by 19ft wide. With a congregation of around 10 people, it was originally a barn which became a school house. Potters Kiln Farm sits just off the Stanton Lane, close to a local business park set within the attractive courtyard of Potters Marston Hall. The Hall was once central to the village of Potters Marston which boasted a thriving pottery industry in the 13th century and was then wiped out by the Black Death. Potters Marston Manor or Hall as it became, was originally gifted to the Benedictine Priory from Leofric, Earl of Mercia who was Lady Godivas husband. Nearby Stoney Cove is used for scuba diving training as well as pleasure dives. On shore facilities include a dive shop, diving school, gas filling station and a public house!
