A pretty thatched farmhouse near Axminster with superb equestrian facilities and just over 20 acres has come to market.

Higher Way in Dalwood has 13 purpose built individual stables plus further barn stabling.

The land (20.3 acres/8.22 hectares) is split into 10 high quality post and rail fenced paddocks.

The property also includes a one bedroom detached annex, the 'Old Dairy' which offers guest accommodation or income potential.

South West Farmer:

The current owners have run a successful stud farm from the grounds for a number of years.

There are two separate stables, currently used as log stores, with their own tack room.

There are a further 11 stables within the main yard and courtyard which have been finished to a high standard with rubber flooring and automatic drinkers.

Two of the main yard stables are larger to facilitate foaling.

South West Farmer:

Within the main yard is a large covered area suitable for a variety of uses.

There is a beautifully finished large tack room and paths to the large barn, lunge ring and horse walker.

The barn itself is currently separated into two with tractor and machinery storage to the rear and three large additional barn stables to the front which open onto a yard and turn out area.

Beyond is the modern lunge ring, five bay covered horse walker and further access to paddocks.

The land is currently divided into 10 post and rail paddocks, each provided with wind breaks and shade and some field shelters.

South West Farmer:

They can all be accessed individually and have direct access to the lanes surrounding the property providing excellent riding opportunities along the nearby bridleways.

The property is situated in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lies between Honiton and Axminster within the parish of Dalwood. This village sits between two ridges of the Blackdown hills, in the valley of the Corry Brook.

The grounds to this property are spectacular and have been superbly managed by the current owners, using the property as a stud farm, but equally offering tremendous scope for a successful purchaser.

The grounds surround the property on all sides with large, family friendly gardens to two sides and paddocks to the others.

South West Farmer:

The rear of the property accesses a large attractive rustic block paved area which in turn leads to a fantastic craftsman built, solid oak, slate roofed pergola with lighting and heating.

This area is wonderful for entertaining providing enough space for a range of sofas and dining furniture and giving views across the surrounding lawns and paddocks beyond.
