Property description

Historic Residential Equestrian Estate


Edlington Wood House delivers a fine combination of substantial stone built farmhouse with ancillary two bedroom annexe living style arrangement in a wonderful courtyard setting together with equestrian facilities and land, all secluded within an enclave bordered by mature woodland. The main house permits formal entertaining as well as relaxed living space and is linked by a series of outbuildings including laundry and tack room to the self-contained single storey annex. As such, the property suits multi-generational living, staff, home working, etc.

The house extends to approximately 3700 ft sq and the annex to approximately 1650 ft sq The equine facilities lie immediately west of the main house with eight stables in an American style barn format, inclusive of wash box and covered turn out area. Just outside is an automated Monarch horse walker (available by separate negotiation). There is an outdoor all-weather arena with three turn out paddocks immediately adjacent, beyond are further meadows suitable for grazing, mowing or further equine development, subject to all statutory consents. In all the grassland extends to approximately 60 acres. The house and equine facilities sit centrally within a large area of woodland encompassing the property on all sides; the woodland is mature, mixed and forms a wonderful back drop. The total site area is approximately 312 acres (subject to measured site survey).

Edlington Wood House sits in an elevated position, significantly extended and improved over the years. Ground floor accommodation includes a high specification kitchen, cellar/pantry, snug with fireplace, large entrance hall with galleried landing and W/C off, large sitting room/entertaining and dining area, complete with fireplace. The first floor includes a family bathroom, located off the landing area, and five double bedrooms with a principal bedroom including en-suite and dressing room area.

To the east of the property is a large parking area, with lawned gardens and carriage sweep to the south elevation, the north is an enclosed courtyard framed by the Annex.

The Annex is single storey property with a large high specification kitchen/dining room, principal bedroom with en-suite, a second bedroom with WC and shower adjacent. There is a further entertaining/living room space together with a small office. The remainder of the courtyard area includes a tack room and further WC with additional storage areas.

Equestrian facilities and Land - To the west of the courtyard is a steel portal framed building with fibre cement roof, enclosed by stone and brick walls, internally this is divided in to eight stables including wash box. This also includes a covered turnout area and an open internal covered courtyard. To the south of the stable building is a covered Monarch automated electric horse walker (available by separate negotiation). A wooded grazing area separates the properties from the outdoor all weather arena to the south, beyond this are three small turnout paddocks and three large grass fields. The grassland area totals approximately 60 acres, which can be used for either grazing or mowing.

Woodland - The woodland surrounds the property on all sides providing a hideaway quality, this gently undulates with mature mixed species sheltering the grassland areas. The woodland has potential to be a significant source of income (subject to felling consents) whilst also providing a very attractive approach and private setting.


The property is situated on the periphery of Edlington Wood, a residential area to the west of Doncaster. The property is ideally located for commuting throughout the South Yorkshire conurbation and beyond.

The A1M is a short car journey away, which provides access to the wider motorway network. Doncaster has a direct rail service into London Kings Cross with some trains under 1.45 hrs.
