Hockeys are delighted to bring to the market, Queen Alexandra Stables, the historic home of Gay Kelleway Racing. Dating back to the late nineteenth century and once part of John Lambton, 3rd Earl of Durham's Harraton Court Stables, these stables hold a rich heritage. Named after Gay's celebrated victory at Royal Ascot in the Queen Alexandra Stakes, this property has seen years of success with group and major handicap winners. Recently renovated to a high standard, it now offers a remarkable residential and racing opportunity.

Nestled in the peaceful village of Exning on the northern outskirts of Newmarket, the stables enjoy a secure location on Chapel Street, with convenient access to Newmarket Heath Training Grounds via the horse walks owned by Jockey Club Estates. For potential buyers seeking additional income, the property offers the chance to let out the adjoining cottage and yard separately, adding to its appeal. Queen Alexandra Stables has been thoughtfully upgraded and boasts an immaculate main cottage, a one-bedroom annexe, a one-bedroom cottage, and an impressive total of 34 boxes, all cleverly arranged within a compact yet practical space. The facilities even include a lunging area and a Claydon Derby Exerciser accommodating five horses. As you arrive through the gated entrance on Chapel Street, you'll be greeted by a spacious gravelled parking area. Further gates lead you through the traditional yellow and red brick frontage, forming the Trainers House and Head Lad's Cottage, into the charming courtyard. The Trainers Cottage comprises modern kitchen, vaulted living room, separate dining room with folding doors out to the attractive side courtyard, two spacious bedrooms and a newly fitted, large bathroom suite which provides comfort and functionality. The adjoining one-bedroom annexe can serve as additional staff accommodation or be incorporated back into the house for family use. The Head Lad's Cottage provides charming one-bedroom accommodation at ground level. Subject to necessary planning consent, it could be integrated back into the principal house, offering additional possibilities. The Training Yard is thoughtfully designed, featuring a main courtyard with eight traditional boxes and the yard office. A deceptively large timber-framed barn houses 14 internal boxes and a tack room, while the side yard holds ten boxes and a feed room. The convenient location of the Head Lad's cottage caters perfectly to accommodate a second trainer. The property is further enhanced by an all-weather lunging arena situated at the front, providing an ideal training space for the horses. Queen Alexandra Stables, with its rich history, excellent facilities, and peaceful location, presents an exceptional opportunity for both residential and racing enthusiasts alike. Don't miss your chance to be a part of this remarkable legacy. Contact us to arrange a viewing and explore the countless possibilities that await you at Queen Alexandra Stables.
