Introducing an exquisite rural retreat tailor-made for equestrians and farm enthusiasts. Nestled on the outskirts of the village of Waterhouses, this charming six-bedroom farmhouse is surrounded by approximately 16.7 acres of private land, allowing you to enjoy the rare privilege of tranquillity and privacy, far removed from the urban chaos. Dating back nearly four centuries, this lovingly maintained home exudes character, boasting exposed beams as part of its rich history. Currently, it serves as a beloved family residence, with an additional 2 bedroom cottage further complemented by a thriving holiday let business with three charming cottages—a perfect income-generating opportunity.

As you step inside the main residence, you are greeted by an entrance hall leading to a spacious living area, complete with a traditional stone fireplace, along with windows overlooking the picturesque landscape. Adjacent to it, the dining room sets the perfect stage for entertaining guests and enjoying family dinners, with its own cosy stone fireplace. 

The quintessential farmhouse kitchen at the rear of the home is a culinary haven, featuring tiled flooring, granite worktops, an integrated dishwasher, an electric hob, and the centrepiece—the classic Aga range cooker. The kitchen island unit with a wooden countertop offers extra workspace and storage. For added convenience, there is also a pantry cupboard and access to the cellar, providing additional storage opportunities and the possibility of using it as your very own wine cellar. Next to the kitchen, you’ll also find a rear lobby with outdoor access, leading to a handy utility room with a toilet.

Make your way to the first floor to find four generous bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms all feature ensuite bathrooms with electric showers, ensuring utmost comfort. Ascending to the second floor, you’ll discover two more bedrooms, one of which also boasts an ensuite bathroom. With such a wide selection of bedrooms, you can turn any of them into a library, an office, a playroom, or any space that resonates with your vision. 

In addition to the farmhouse, there is Broadhurst Cottage, a two-bedroom self-contained residence. Comprising a living room, kitchen/diner with an electric oven and hob, bathroom, and laundry room with plumbing for a washing machine, this space is perfect for accommodating guests or extending your family’s living space. 

Should you wish to maximise business opportunities and expand the existing holiday let business, the two residential residences hold tremendous potential as additional holiday cottages.

Step outside to enjoy a sunny courtyard, perfect for alfresco dining and relaxation during the warmer months. It leads to three holiday let cottages, each equipped with everything your guests may need for comfort and its very own hot tub—a luxurious treat perfect for unwinding with a glass of wine. The property also offers a communal garden and play/barbecue area with tables and designated guest parking.

Pine Cottage, the biggest of the three, provides comfortable lodging for up to twelve guests across four bedrooms with three bathrooms, including two en-suites. It features a well-equipped kitchen, a handy utility room, and an ample lounge. Guests can also enjoy a private outdoor area where a hot tub awaits.

Elm Cottage houses up to ten people with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, including one en-suite. It offers a well-equipped kitchen and a living area with access to a private outdoor area with a hot tub.

Cedar Cottage, with two bedrooms and one bathroom, comfortably sleeps up to six guests. It boasts a well-equipped kitchen, a cosy lounge and a private patio area with a hot tub.

The Ultimate Equestrian Experience

For equestrians and horse lovers, this property is nothing short of a dream come true. Spanning across approximately 16.7 acres, the private grounds come complete with outstanding equestrian facilities. 

Offering plenty of room for your horses, there is a stable barn housing six large internal stables and two additional large stables that can easily be transformed into storage spaces or more stables, depending on your needs. Additionally, one of the lush grazing paddocks boasts a timber stable block thoughtfully comprising four stables and a tack room. Beyond these remarkable facilities, a separate barn stands ready to store machinery, gardening equipment, or feed – or to be converted into even more stables for your beloved companions.

Surrounding the property is its own grazing land, encircled by fencing and stone walling. A recent addition to this equestrian haven is the 40m x 20m outdoor riding arena, where your horses can thrive on the sand and rubber surface. Enclosed by sturdy post and rail fencing, it offers a secure space for uninterrupted training and enjoyment.

If you’ve ever dreamed of launching your own equestrian venture, this property is your golden opportunity. Whether your aspirations involve horse training, boarding, breeding, or even renting out the arena – everything you need to make them a reality is here.

Beyond the property, the region offers a plethora of excellent equestrian centres and facilities, all within a 30-minute radius:
