Ivy House Stables comprises a beautifully appointed contemporary three-bedroom home, 10 acres of well-wooded paddocks, and an extensive range of equestrian facilities required to develop a diverse equestrian business.

Being sold through the Penrith office of H&H Land & Estates this lifestyle property and business opportunity is for sale by private treaty.

The central focus of the equestrian facility is a generous steel barn, circa 1,600 sq metres, providing secure internal stabling for up to 25 horses, together with an external isolation stable.

A separate covered section houses an electric exercise ring, exercise pool, and a selection of loose boxes and tack rooms, and to the side is a further covered yard area with adjacent workshop and vehicle store.

Current owner, Emma Greenland, is selling Ivy House Stables to focus on the development of her equine stud business. She said: “Since we bought Ivy House in 2011, we’ve grown the business successfully to offer full livery accommodation for 10 horses, and we have increasingly been entrusted with horses for rehabilitation from racing trainers, eventers, showjumpers and owners with problem horses. Ivy House Stables has established a reputation as the only rehabilitation centre of its kind in North West England and South West of Scotland.”
