The Swimming Pool Complex is a modern, brick built barn housing a BHA approved equine swimming pool, which has been recently renovated. Two large five bay horse walkers with heat lamps are also found within this barn. Eighteen stables are arranged in a crescent shape around the Swimming Pool Complex.

The Top Yard consists of thirty five stables in total, arranged in several different blocks. Some are of timber construction, whilst the majority are the original picturesque brick built stables with tiled roofs. A tack room and colours room can be found on the southern side of the yard.

Eight interior boxes can be found in the New Stable Barn, along with a third horse walker, sectioned for six horses.

A further block of ten timber stables can be found behind the New Stable Barn.

A large, secure newly renovated and resurfaced lunge arena is found towards the back of the property.
