KINGS EQUESTRIAN CENTRE

The arenas are 60m x 30m water based sand arenas were installed by Reitenlagen Stiller. Water is collected and recycled via the reservoir lake making the arenas environmentally friendly and economical to operate. The centre is an established successful equestrian and events venue with national recognition.

The centre provides for a varied selection of activities, principally equestrian but including a range of other activities. The indoor arena is used by a spectrum of organisations including British Dressage, NPS, WCPS, inter school competitions, local riding clubs, dog shows and dog agility, various clinics and private schooling. The venue also lends itself to hosting weddings, parties, auctions and social functions. These events enjoy an attractive, tranquil and idyllic setting within easy driving of the national road network. See kingsequestrian.co.uk for further details and events.

STURTS FARM
Sturts Farm is an attractive period 4 bedroom stone farmhouse refurbished to a high standard whilst retaining many of the period features with wood burning stove and an Alpha kitchen range. The farmhouse enjoys a peaceful setting secluded from the equestrian centre with a lovely outlook over the land and garden.

Outside there is a modest range of traditional and modern buildings which provide scope for further development. Planning permission was granted on the `L` shape barn for three bedroom house, this planning now lapsed. The buildings form a natural division between Sturts Farm and Kings Equestrian creating privacy within the smallholding and segregating the business element. Beyond the farmhouse are the paddocks which create a rustic outlook, enhanced by the lake, wooded boundaries and two streams.
