Property Description

The Perfect Centre for Competition Horses Designed for equestrian use, Cedar Cottage Stables has a well balanced mix of domestic accommodation, stabling, professional schooling facilities and paddocks.


Cedar Cottage Stables is only 45 miles from Central London, 16 miles from the M4 at Maidenhead, and 14 miles from Oxford. Wallingford is an attractive market town on the River Thames with a wide range of shops, and trains to London from Cholsey take under an hour. Close to the foot of the Chiltern Hills, this is an excellent location for the equestrian competitor.

Cedar Cottage Stables

Designed for equestrian use, Cedar Cottage Stables has a well balanced mix of domestic accommodation, stabling, professional schooling facilities and paddocks. The main house has been expanded on one floor to provide a well appointed and comfortable four bedroom house in a sheltered and private garden. Subject to planning approval, the site could well justify a larger house.

The stables, arranged in two principal groups, with outlying boxes, are designed for ease of management, close to the indoor and outdoor schools.

The staff accommodation, in the stables is newly fitted and ideal for stable staff.

The property has electric wooden gates at the entrance. The drive, passing the outdoor school, then forks and on the left, approached over a bonded gravel drive through a second pair of wooden gates is:

Cedar Cottage

Newly fitted out to a high standard in the last year, the kitchen and bathrooms have been hardly used. The house is deceptively large and is ready for immediate occupation. The garden surrounds the cottage and is well sheltered by hedging. There are excellent reception rooms and good sized bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.

The Stable Buildings - 20 boxes

• A range of timber stores, including the boiler room for Cedar Cottage.
