Property description

A rare and unique opportunity has arisen to purchase one of West Yorkshire’s highly regarded equestrian show centres.
Set within approximately 10.5 acres of grounds, Manor Grange Stud is a Dressage Riders and Show Jumper’s dream offering first-class competition and training facilities, a thriving commercial business ready to take over and private on-site accommodation to house a growing family.
Located in the rural village of Cridling Stubbs, just a few miles outside of Pontefract and with excellent motorway links nearby, this well-respected sports venue has been lovingly cared for since opening in 1999 and is now available for the new owners to make their own mark.

Manor Grange Stud is an approved British Dressage and Show Jumping centre and through the years has become a key venue in the north of England for Dressage and Show Jumping events.
Built for equestrians by a passionate family heavily invested in the sport, this facility is unsurprisingly first-class in every way.
Every minor detail has been carefully considered and the result is a venue which takes inspiration from alternative equestrian locations around the country and gives competitors an excellent stage to produce their best on the day.
Among the vast site are two immaculate equestrian arenas, more than 40 high-quality day stables, two large car parks offering great accessibility and a state-of-the-art, purpose-built training centre featuring a mechanical training horse installed in 2007.
This place is tailor-made for the requirements of riders and can accommodate plenty of spectators too with a reception area, café, indoor viewing gallery and lecture theatre overlooking the main arena space which spans 3000 square metres in all.

With a full diary of events booked a year in advance, the new business owners can hit the ground running.
With a reputation of the highest order, nationwide societies and associations and even those from further afield across the globe hire the facilities to host their events, meaning the scope to develop is absolutely certain.
In the past, the venue has hosted a wide range of prestigious calendar events including Petplan Equine Area Festivals three years in succession.
With an abundance of land and acres to spare, there is potential for whoever takes the reins to build further and expand the facilities with a chance to welcome more visitors.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the thriving business premises are two purpose-built, chalet style homes set within a private lawned garden. 
Immaculately kept, featuring an impressive raised decking area housing a sunken hot tub and a generous patio with a wooden gazebo structure for shelter, during the summer months it transforms into a perfect party space. 
The first two-bedroom chalet was built around a decade ago and sits at a raised level with a bedroom stepping straight out to the decking through patio doors.
When the sun is shining and you’re enjoying breakfast outside, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were relaxing in your own private holiday home.
The layout is deceptively spacious, comprising of a utility room and separate WC, an open-plan kitchen-diner with additional breakfast bar island that wraps around to the living room and a modern shower room.
The decor is neutral and modern throughout, meaning it’s ready to move straight in. 

The second home was built less than five years ago and is equally bright and tastefully decorated.
Walk into the open-plan living space which benefits from dual-aspect patio doors for wonderful natural light throughout the day. 
Here you’ll find a modern shaker-style kitchen complete with triple built-in ovens, electric hob, space for a huge larder fridge and an island with built-in electric points.
The family enjoy socialising and relaxing here at the dining table or cosying up to watch TV in the winter evenings.
Continue through to a large double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and a chic, tiled en-suite bathroom.
A further walk-in shower room is situated at the opposite end of the house, along with two double bedrooms and a utility room leading off to the back door – which is perfect to use a boot room and coat storage after a day working on site. 

In addition to the two homes, there’s a separate office meaning you won’t have far to travel for the daily commute. It feels like a screened family hub; it’s nice to have our own separate family space away from the business.

If you are in the market for an Equestrian property, the pretty village of Cridling Stubbs in West Yorkshire is the perfect place to call home.
Although this home is just minutes from the convenience of the A1 and M62, it is so peaceful, you would never know it. Its proximity offers easy access to Leeds, York, Sheffield and Doncaster.  As an Equestrian centre it really is prime location for people to gain access to, from all over Yorkshire and even further afield.
For an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and exciting attractions the nearby town of Pontefract has plenty to offer as well as numerous train stations that provide easy access to the main big cities.
For families, it is an ideal place with excellent schools including Queen Elizabeth Grammar School for girls and QUEGS Junior and Senior school for boys, both in Wakefield alongside Ackworth Quaker School. Days out are a pleasure with historic Nostell Priory, an 18th century manor house close by. Its parklands, gardens and play park are a perfect way to while away the hours. Culture lovers will be drawn to The Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the delights of The Hepworth Gallery.
If you don’t fancy heading too far and want to take in the scenery with your equine companion, you are not short of choice for bridal paths and countryside rides just on your doorstep.
