Stud farm on the edge of Cleeve Hill

About this property

  • Wickfield provides a rare opportunity to purchase a well known successful stud farm located on the edge of Cleeve Hill. There is direct access onto Cleeve Common which offers over a 1,000 acres of open access for walking and riding.

    Cheltenham needs no introduction as the centre of National Hunt Racing and both successful National Hunt horses including Red Marauder and Flat horses including Belgian Bill and Hawksley Hill have been bred at Wickfield under the care of Mr and Mrs Brookes.

    The stud comprises a versatile and spacious bungalow extending to two bedrooms all set within an attractive courtyard well suited for the delivery of foals and the close monitoring of horses. Outside of the courtyard there are two further barns and loose boxes providing versatile stabling for a variety of equine uses.

    Further equestrian facilities include a feed and tack room, lunging rings and post & rail paddocks. In addition there is a currently unused 5 furlong grass gallop and Wickfield Stud previously benefitted from planning permission to install an all-weather paddock on the gallop.

    Strictly by appointment with Savills. Prior to making an appointment to view, we strongly recommend that you discuss any particular points which are likely to affect your interest in the property with a member of staff who has seen the property, in order that you do not make a wasted journey.
