GROUNDS & OUTBUILDINGS
52 acres of clay paddocks overlooking rural views. Perfect for animals to graze. Current owners have historically had 100 suckler cow herd, horses and now sheep in all the paddocks. In more recent years the paddocks have also been mowed to produce hay. There is post and rail stock fencing (some with barbed wire) enclosing all the land and ponds. There are two gates on the drive prohibiting stock accessing the road. There is a separate water system that provides water to the troughs in all fields. There is 4 good size, wooden RJ Joinery stables with power and light; each stable has a hay rack and a useful tap at the end of the stable block. There is a concrete standing area outside the boxes. The yard area is generous enough to have no problems with parking/turning horseboxes, trailers or more substantial lorries. The elbow of the drive leading to the yard area has cleverly been made slightly wider than the main drive to accommodate artic lorries and farm machinery.
