'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.'

Lanes at the back of the property lead to lanes which can be used for hacking.
