Buying a house with stables is not horseplay

Buying a horse is not just for Christmas, but a big commitment in terms of both time and expense – and it may involve moving home.

Keeping horses on site may sound like an extravagance, but it means owners can save on renting fields and stables.

And perhaps most importantly, it saves time. Travelling to a rented stable may take at least half an hour one way, which is clearly not ideal if you need to visit your horse a couple of times a day.

If a horse is housed in stables just yards away from your own property, it is going to take just 10 minutes to do a feed instead of potentially more than an hour.

And of course, there’s the luxury of being able to see your horse over the fence from your kitchen window.

Old Vicarage farm is a Grade II Listed property built in the 1850s that has undergone a complete modernisation.

The six bedroom home is seven miles from Cardigan in Wales and is currently on the market for £659,000 via Rural Scene.

It comes complete with several outbuildings – including a stable yard with three loose boxes, a stone barn and garage – and 24 acres of land. The paddocks are conveniently sized and most have water troughts

Properties with fields are not restricted to those with a million pounds budget and can be obtained for a few hundred thousand pounds.

A three bedroom detached house in Wigton is currently on the market with land and estate agents Donald Scott for £300,000 and comes complete with two fields extending to two acres.
