The stable yard is positioned within the heart of the Hardwick Hall Estate near Ellesmere, located close to the main residence and surrounding buildings. The stable yard itself is gated off to create a secure courtyard of buildings which are close to one another making the yard very manageable on a day-to-day basis. There are two main stable buildings as follows:

Top Yard
containing 9 internal stables, all with automatic water feeders and all but one having rubber matting installed. The barn is large and airy with double swing doors to the front and a wide central walkway between the stables with a wash bay tie-up area to the far end. The wash bay has a gas LPG hot water horse shower with two tie-up poles on rubber matting. There is a purpose-built storage box and rug hanging rack to one side of the barn, assisting with keeping the yard tidy and easy to use.

Middle Yard
having 7 internal stables that surround a central walkway, all generous in size with automatic water feeders, the barn being open fronted providing good light and air into the building.

Between the two stable buildings, a refurbished stone-built tack room and tool store positioned off a walkway to the horse walker. Both centrally positioned to the yard for ease of use. The tack room is fully secure and has been finished to a high standard with timber panelling and exposed stonework. There is a fitted kitchen with a range of base units and inset sink with hot water and worktop over. Ceiling spotlights and power are connected, along with a range of saddle racks and bridle hooks that are wall mounted to either side of the room.

The Horse Walker is a Monarch four horse walker with rubber matting and mesh sides on a concrete pad.

The lower part of the yard entered off the parking area, has a stone building with slate roof and contains an office, large rug room and feed room. This building will be available for use but may be required for future change of use to accommodation for the stable yard. Currently, the office has been finished to a high standard with timber panelling and a range of base units with a sink.

There are a further two stables within a timber range having two separate rug storage rooms and an additional tack room, again finished to an high standard having a small kitchen worktop area with sink and base units below, a range of saddle and bridle racks on timber panelling. Spotlights and power are connected throughout.

The final building to complete the yard is an open barn to front and rear with steel frame and box profile sheet roof, approx. size of 40’ x 15’ suitable for hay and bedding storage.

Positioned to the far side of the main residence, Hardwick Hall, the manege is neatly positioned a short walk away from the yard itself and is set within sheltered and quiet surroundings. Measuring approx. 35m x 60m having a professional ‘Combi-Ride’ silica sand, fibre and wax surface with post and rail perimeter fence. There are floodlights off the gable end of a neighbouring building to illuminate the majority of the manege, dressage mirrors are also installed to one end and there is a storage area for showjump wings and poles along with an undercover heated viewing area.

Lunge Ring
