Eastlands Park near Horsham in West Sussex, has come to market offering the opportunity to develop an arable and equestrian business just 40 miles from London.

Lot five is about 521 acres of Grade 3 arable land, including about 121 acres of woodland, and a large general-purpose barn. Recent cropping has included wheat, oats, spring barley and oilseed rape, and is managed under a farming 

Further farm buildings and equestrian facilities are included in lot two over two yards. These include 11 stables, tack and feed rooms, a full size indoor riding school and about 24 acres of fenced paddocks. A further barn is divided into seven stables, but could be used for other farm activities. There are also two general-purpose storage barns, one of which is 113sq m, a tractor store, and a general-purpose building of 660sq m.

Both lots are well connected to each other, with good on-farm access. SPS entitlements exist, but would need to be negotiated in addition to the guide price. Lots are open to offers. (Knight Frank 020 7861 1069)
