Owners Andrea Pearman and Richard Colman said: 'We have enjoyed a great lifestyle here at The Jays with a thriving business when we were working full steam.
'We have all but semi-retired and are looking towards our next chapter in retirement and spending time on our own hobbies which include showing Mountain & Moorland working horses at regional and national level.'
The agent, Zoe Napier, says: 'The Jays is a fabulous home business opportunity.
'While the buyer might pick up the reins and run a potentially thriving equestrian centre with no apparent limitations on the frequency of shows, we also think that the main show area with lorry parking for 50 to 100 vehicles could offer scope for mixed/permissible commercial uses, combined keeping horses, such as a storage yard with easy access for A14.
'We love the fact that the house is nearly a third of a mile away from the main road and nestled in the woods.'
