There are 20 stables in all, 16 of which are housed in the American Barn with the remaining number in a detached block of four. The stables within the American Barn are of varying size, with 10 regular and six larger bays, with eight of the stables enjoying dual access. The stable fixtures and fittings are Loddon, a world-leading equine facilities manufacturer, and feature hay and swivel-feed mangers. There are feed preparation, tack room and wash-down areas and the stables have automatic waterers, and of note all water pipes have an electric trace heating system to prevent freezing. The lunging pen is directly adjacent to both stable blocks and presents in good order. Within the American Barn is the stud office with staff room, shower facilities and a laundry. We further note that attached to the block of four is a large lock-up store room. There are two further barns - one for storage and a second one for extra open stabling if necessary.
The staff cottage is a two bedroom detached property adjacent to the yard with lpg heating and comprises a generous sitting room, a family room/study and an extremely well appointed open-plan kitchen/dining room.
