A ‘PRESTIGIOUS’ equine competition centre in Clevedon is up for sale after the owner closed the facility last year.

The Hand Equestrian Centre in Davis Lane is listed on www.jacksonequestrian.com for sale in excess of £950,000.

The description states: “The Hand Equestrian Centre has been a prestigious national equine competition centre.

“It has been regularly used by the British Show Jumping Association, British Eventing and British Dressage holding a range of competitions, shows and events.

“The equestrian facilities are very impressive and we are informed that the previous vendors developed these facilities with a view to creating an Olympic-approved equestrian facility.

“Whilst this property is unquestionably a state-of-the-art equestrian centre we are informed that the site has been used to host alternative commercial activities from car boot sales, white collar boxing tournaments, livery yard, dog training events, dinner dance events and functions.

“There is clearly considerable scope for a range of commercial opportunities subject to the relevant planning consents.”

The site offers a main building and 
main indoor arena, with a secondary 
indoor arena, extensive grandstand, 68 stables, judges boxes and viewing galleries from two restaurants and a lounge/bar area.

The 12.50-acre site also boasts on-street parking for all vehicles as well as men’s, women’s and disabled toilets and two commercial twin kitchens.

The Hand Equestrian Centre closed in December last year when owner Nick Davies, who bought the centre in 2007, revealed he had ‘no alternative’ but to close the centre due to financial difficulties.
