Wonderful equestrian property on the edge of Bodmin Moor

Mon 18 July 2022

Situated on the edge of the attractive moorland village of St Neot and dating back to the early 1800’s, The Hayloft is a 4-bedroom converted barn with reverse accommodation that has been sympathetically extended and updated to a high standard by its current owners and benefits from a total of approximately six acres.

The property is approached by a quiet parish road to a concrete driveway and yard with ample parking and turning space. To the side and rear of the house is a patio and lawn with far-reaching valley views. There is a productive vegetable patch with raised beds and a greenhouse. The property benefits from excellent equine facilities, with stables, sand school, paddocks and additional outbuildings, that, with the necessary permissions, would lend themselves to conversion for a number of uses. Approximately 200 meters from the house, down a quiet parish road, is five acres of grazing land which is currently divided into two paddocks. Adjoining the property is a further 1.5 acres of land currently rented to our client under a Farm Business Tenancy.

The house, garden, stables, sand school and turnout paddock sit in approximately an acre of ground. The stable block comprises a foaling box, hunter box, pony box and fourth stable/barn. The double garage has a set of external steps leading to an office and storage space on the first floor. There are three further equipment sheds and a field shelter.

Sheltering in a valley on the edge of Bodmin Moor within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, St Neot is one of South Cornwall’s prettiest villages. Quiet parish roads give easy access to the expanse of Bodmin Moor, offering bridleways extending for mile after mile across unspoilt, open moorland scenery right on the doorstep. The terrain is suitable for all levels of riding, providing an ideal hack for everyone and offering far-reaching views across rolling moorland. It is also perfectly located for exploring the beaches on both the north and south coasts of Cornwall, which are within 20 miles so perfect to box over to for some beach-riding escapades.

The location also benefits from several nearby British Horse Society Approved Riding Centres, which offer a huge range of facilities, expertise and events.

The Hayloft is currently on the market with Stags Launceston office for offers in excess of £895,000. The office can be contacted on 01566 774999 or
