A Highly Acclaimed Purposely

Designed Cross -Country / Eventing Training Course Of 52 Acres Overlooking The Aeron Valley with purpose built natural looking lake.

This is a superb equestrian facility designed and built by David Evans, the highly renowned international and Olympic course builder, with a water complex which is quoted to be "the best in the country, not the biggest but the best". It has 22 fences with 3 alternatives 2ft to 3ft 9", laid across old turf and prepared going throughout the course, 2 principal linked training areas, a hard surface one-way system for parking and exit road from the Council maintained highway. The lake has diversification potential. The course is available for hire for events and training with an established income stream. Accounts are available for inspection to bona fide applicants. The land is utilised for winter grazing of sheep and summer mowing and provides a valuable agricultural and equestrian investment property. In all believed to extend to 52 acres or thereabouts.

Subject to planning consents the site has enormous potential for glamping initiative together with stables.


Uniquely situated amid the landscape of the middle reaches of the Aeron Valley, just over 1 mile from the village of Talsarn, 9 miles from the University town of Lampeter and 15 miles South of the coastal resort, University town, and administrative centre of Aberystwyth, it is easily accessed from the B4337. The placing of Cambrian Cross Country on the open market provides prospective purchasers with a rare opportunity to acquire a highly acclaimed and renowned cross-country/eventing training course in this part of the world. The course is readily accessible via the M4/A48, A40, A482 (Lampeter) and A487 (Aberystwyth) trunk roads.

The site is renowned for having wonderful going on old turf in all conditions. A long season that can be enjoyed from February to late Autumn, on the naturally well drained old pasture on Trichrug and the benefit of a Southerly aspect, plus good access for large vehicles are all advantages. There is the added attraction in Panoramic views over Ceredigion and beyond.

Notable equestrian trainers and riders visit the course on a regular basis and many of these have distinguished themselves within the sport of eventing, equestrianism's fastest growing sector. We believe this is the only such facility within 60 miles.

Agriculturally the land has been used in rotation which contributes to the health of livestock as well as sward content. The land is securely fenced within a ring circle for livestock rearing and is divided into numerous internal enclosures. This would be of relevance to an agricultural buyer.

The cross country fences have been meticulously maintained by the current management team.

Further details as regards the site, its current charge rates etc are available on


For the discerning equestrian buyer or indeed those seeking a parcel of useful agricultural land located in a healthy up-land early growing area influenced by its close proximity to the coast, then this is an agricultural parcel with a ready income stream that should appeal to the wider audience. Its specialization as a highly acclaimed and professional designed equestrian cross-country course should not be under estimated. Now for sale due to the retirement of the existing owner, it provides an unique business opportunity.
