Gazeley Stud has its origins as a long-established stud farm, which is justified by its excellent paddocks and proximity to Newmarket. Originally part of the then Phillips family's Dalham Hall Stud, it was purchased by Pat McCalmont in the 1970s and run as a stallion station, standing Tyrnavos, Hotfoot and Sizzling Melody. The current owners bought Gazeley in 2007 and have run it as a private stud for their own and clients' mares, meanwhile modernising and extending the house.

The paddocks are well railed and have plenty of shelter provided by mature trees and hedgerows. Due to a light stocking regime, the quality of the grazing stands out. With excellent buildings and a superbly finished house, Gazeley Stud is a rare opportunity to acquire a stud and house of exceptional quality.


Gazeley Stud is on the edge of the village of Gazeley, less than 5 miles east of Newmarket, Britain's largest racehorse training centre. Newmarket itself has two racecourses, the Tattersalls Sales complex, and some of the finest veterinary facilities in Europe. Newmarket is also home to the Jockey Club and the British Horseracing Museum.

The A14 (Junction 39) is about 2 miles to the north and provides good road access to the East and West. Newmarket (5 miles) and Cambridge North (18 miles) provide rail links via Cambridge to London King's Cross and Liverpool Street Stations.

Stansted Airport is approximately 38 miles to the south by dual carriageway and motorway.

A selection of private and state schools are located in Newmarket, Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds and Ely, as are good shopping and recreational facilities.

Gazeley Stud House

Originally built in the 1975, the Stud House has been extended and updated under the current ownership. Approached by a tree lined drive past the stud buildings and through double electric gates, the house has a gated drive and is surrounded by almost an acre of garden. Totalling about 6,500 ft², of note are the four principal reception rooms, superb kitchen and well proportioned bedrooms.

The reception hall with double height ceilings has timber flooring, silk wallpaper and a timber staircase. Off the hall is a cloakroom, with built in shelving, and a separate WC. The formal dining room is accessed from the hallway with a fitted storage area beyond, leading to the 2-bedroom annex. The principal drawing room has an open fireplace. The sitting room has timber flooring and a glazed door leading to the garden. The games room or study has built in cupboards housing a large built in safe. Beyond the study is the laundry room with a sink and a boiler room, hot water tank and Monarch water softener system.

The south-facing kitchen has quartz counter tops and an 8-foot-long Orinoco granite island with an instant hot water tap and Blanco double sink. The kitchen is fitted with Smeg ovens, an Elica induction hob, a Sub-Zero American style fridge-freezer and a Caple wine fridge. There is a walk-in pantry with fitted storage and integrated Miele coffee machine and microwave. A recent addition to the kitchen is the sitting area at one end, with a glass roof lantern and bi-fold doors leading out to the terrace and garden. Views extend over the garden to the paddocks beyond.
