The property has been developed by the present owner over the past fifteen years and has primarily been run as a livery yard and children's’ tracking centre together with a small cattery. This has provided a fantastic lifestyle business which is ready to be taken on by the next owners.

The house was built subject to an Equestrian Occupancy Condition which states that it must be used solely in connection with the operation and security of the horses and stables.

The property lies in a wonderfully secluded setting surrounded by beautiful rolling, part wooded countryside which offers extensive hacking along various bridleways and through Charmouth Forest. A public footpath runs through the property.

Nearby Axminster offers a range of day to day shops, amenities and junior school with further facilities in the popular coastal town of Lyme Regis.
