A spokesperson for Symonds & Sampson said: "The property benefits from free draining yet productive loam over limestone soil, perfectly suited to equestrian use, in an area of North Dorset rich in equine heritage.

"Under the current ownership, the house interior has been fitted to a high specification whilst equestrian facilities have been added and upgraded and all are approached via a sweeping tree-lined entrance drive."
