Location Map



The Hills Farm Stables enjoys a wonderfully peaceful situation within the Downton Hall Estate, benefiting from far reaching views towards the Clee Hills and being surrounded by its own paddocks.
The setting can be fully enjoyed by the equestrian user with good outriding on the quiet country lanes and bridleways within the local vicinity.

Nearby is the popular historic town of Ludlow renowned for its architecture, fine dining and vibrant festivals with a wealth of everyday facilities and amenities including independent shops and supermarkets. Locally there is a good choice of independent and state schools.
With only a five minute drive to the A49, the property is well located for communications both north & south providing good access to competitions both locally and further afield.

Barn Cottage is a brick built cottage incorporating double glazed timber windows and providing well laid out accommodation. A three bedroom barn conversion, situated on the stable yard which takes in the full beauty of the uninterrupted views of the Clee Hills. The property consists of 3 double bedrooms, two of which are at ground floor level with a family bathroom and the third bedroom at first floor level with an en-suite bathroom. The open plan Kitchen, Dining and Living room has vast space with its vaulted ceiling and exposed original timbers. A wood burning stove is the key focal point of the room and forms the centre of the living area of the L-shaped room. The downstairs cloakroom, utility & boiler room and rear entrance complete the property and provide access to the main yard, a second entrance form the lower courtyard brings you straight into the open plan living area.

Stable Yard
The stable yard consists of 17 loose boxes, 14 of which are located in one row with a further 3 loose boxes and four traditional open fronted storage areas to form its own lower courtyard. The stables are of brick construction with pitched tiled roof and canopy overhang to the front. The whole yard areas are part concrete and part tarmacadam throughout with good turning space and parking. There are various water points and good external lighting throughout the yard with a muck trailer also conveniently located.

A large timber framed building with steel box profile cladding contains a 5 horse walker on a concrete floor and two youngstock pens, one of which has direct access to a turnout paddock to the rear.

A traditional brick barn contains a secure tack room with hot water connected and feed room which are both centrally located to the stable yard for practical ease of use. There are further storage areas on the first floor area above the tack and feed rooms.

The construction of a manege on site would be considered by the Landlord and would be discussed on application.

The property has 4.5 acres adjacent to the yard. There would be the possibility of a further 10 acres of land becoming available at the end of September 2016 as this is currently let on a Farm Business Tenancy.
