Brick building with 2 very large foaling boxes.

Log store and workshops.

There are just under 19 hectares (nearly 50 acres) of good grazing land. Some land is on an incline and therefore incredibly well drained and very good quality grazing. Hay is also made on the farm for the owners by local farmer. The fencing is a mixture of post-and-rail, electric, hedges and newly installed horserail fencing. There are several smaller paddocks with high post-and-railed fencing for the competition horses whilst the rest of the land is divided into larger fields for broodmares and young horse herds. There are 7 Bomaco 3m X 6m field shelters; one each for most of the fields.

The septic tank meets required standards.

Newly completed gite already has bookings. The owners have received interest from riders wishing to be based in Normandy for a season with their horses. They also plan to use the longère as riders accommodation for this purpose once completed.
