Robins Farm enjoys a wonderful unspoilt rural landscape just to the southeast of the picturesque village of Chiddingfold and is approached through electric operated wooden gates off Fisher Lane. There are separate off-road entrances both to the west and (for access by larger articulated lorries) to the east. The farm is situated in a particularly peaceful and tranquil location on the Surrey/Sussex borders yet only 45 miles from Central London. The village has three pubs, an excellent village store, pharmacy, coffee shop and butchers. Godalming is about 8 miles to the north and offers a good range of shops, including Sainsbury's and Waitrose. The county town of Guildford is approximately 13 miles away, with extensive shopping facilities, various restaurants and theatres. For the commuter, by train, there is a choice of services from Haslemere, Witley and Milford. The A3 at Milford provides access to the coast and London as well as the M25 (J10) for Gatwick and Heathrow airports. Cowdray Park Polo Club is 11 miles away, and Goodwood Racecourse 20 miles.
Robins Farm has been developed into a well-equipped establishment with a proven record of training winners. The facilities are exceptional, featuring state-of-the-art equipment and remarkable attention to detail. Significant investment has been put into the training facilities at Robins Farm, however these could be modified to suit various equestrian disciplines including polo, eventing or dressage.

The Land and Gallops

Circle Gallop Approximately 3 furlongs surfaced with Irish Wexford Sand, situated inside the main gallop.
Hill Gallop More than 4 furlongs with a woodchip surface.
The Equestrian Complex (52 boxes)
There are 43 boxes in 3 blocks of timber clad American Barns. There is a further block of 7 timber stables, which have been used as a nursery yard as well as 2 isolation boxes. The stable barns were built to the highest standard to ensure the very best environment for the horses, combining warmth with constant fresh air in a bright and spacious environment. Special emphasis has been placed on ventilation via soffits and overhead louvres. One stable has been fitted with a vibrating floor and another with solarium lights. All of the stables have rubber mats and rubber walls to provide added protection and each has its own measurable water supply and feed bowl. There are two horse walkers; one for 5 horses and the other for 6 horses as well as a covered and sound proofed horse treadmill.
