Looking for quality equestrian properties in the UK? Carter Jonas has extensive experience with equine property for sale and is well-placed to provide equestrian property agency and professional services, including management, valuation, building surveying and planning/development, across the breadth of England and Wales. 

Carter Jonas is involved in a wide variety of equestrian properties for sale, including stud farms, racing yards, livery yards, paddocks, stables, and veterinary practices.

Investing in equine property

We understand that such properties vary with the nature of the operation and resources, and often include a component of residential accommodation, as well as varying degrees of equestrian facilities. 

Typically, with equestrian properties, the majority of the value is held with the principal property, varying more precisely with where this is located and how it is presented within the sale. Therefore, careful consideration should be given to the main asset’s condition and maintenance requirements, to allow client confidence when investing in equine operations. 

Equestrian property for sale and to let

We handle this process from instruction to completion and are experienced in dealing with property ranging from houses and farms with an equine element, to more specific equestrian centres including stud farms, training establishments and livery yards. 

Recent completed sales include: 

  • Pond House Stables on Newmarket, which had a guide price of £625,000
  • Lower Green Farm in Hertfordshire, which had a guide price of £1,000,000
  • Oak Tree Stables Livery Yard in Churchstanton, which had a guide price of £250,000 
  • Home Farm in Catterick, which had a guide price of £2,100,000 
  • Worsall Grange in Yarm, which had a guide price of £1,800,000

Our equestrian property services

Whether you are looking to buy, sell, rent or manage your equine property - Carter Jonas consistently provides a very personal service to our equestrian property clients. Through all our dealings, we never lose sight of the individuality of our clients. With every instruction, we begin by asking what our client wants to achieve from their investment. From that moment on, our team and our services are shaped to deliver the desired result. 

As a multidisciplinary firm, we can draw on the expertise of our wider team should you want to expand your equestrian business by obtaining finance, exploring planning options, or selling parts of your business or property. We can also offer management and client accounting services.

Valuing equestrian property

With 100 RICS-registered valuers across the firm, we can provide professional valuations on all manner of properties. This includes equestrian properties and mixed portfolios. 

Managment of equine property

Across England and Wales, we manage 1.3 million acres of rural farms and land, as well as assets from across the property spectrum and mixed portfolios spanning equestrian, residential, commercial, coastal and infrastructures. We can tailor our estate management services to suit the specific requirements of your equine operation. 

Equestrian property surveys

Our building surveying teams have experience in carrying out acquisition surveys and condition surveys for equestrian properties, as well as offering repairs advice and design and project management services. 

Planning for equestrian property

For equestrian developments, as well as the full suite of property types, we have proven experience in pre-application enquiries, change of use, prior notification (including class q), removal of conditions, certificate of lawful existing alternative development, full planning applications, outline planning applications and planning appeals. 

Funding for expanding, developing or buying an equestrian property for sale

We help clients to source financing for all sorts of purchases and projects, including in equestrian property. Whether it’s buying land for expansion, purchasing an equine property for sale, or developing existing buildings and land, we can help. 

We recently secured funding from Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (AMC) for a livery and stud business in Hampshire to purchase additional land to expand the business. This process involved working with the business owner to understand how the business operates, how the land fitted into the business plan and ensuring all AMC’s criteria for a loan were met. 

Carter Jonas is a familiar face at equestrian events, having a known track record in sponsoring and running trade stands at point-to-point race meetings and three-day eventing competitions. These present an opportunity for us to speak to clients directly and discuss the full range of property services which we offer in this sector, led by our national team of equestrian experts and property specialists.
