Country Life Every Week - - Property Market -

For­mer Na­tional Hunt trainer John Fer­gu­son, who ear­lier this year re­lin­quished his li­cence to con­cen­trate solely on his role as CEO and rac­ing man­ager of Sheik Mo­hammed’s mas­sive Godol­phin oper­a­tion world­wide, is selling his state-of-the-art train­ing cen­tre, Bloom­fields, at Cowlinge, near New­mar­ket, Suf­folk, through Strutt & Parker in Cam­bridge (01223 459500) at a guide price of £4.5m for the whole. The pris­tine eques­trian com­plex in­cludes 55 loose boxes, ul­tra-modern train­ing and stud fa­cil­i­ties and 113 acres of pad­docks and gal­lops, as well as the im­mac­u­late, six-bed­room main farm­house, with four sep­a­rate cot­tages and two flats. Com­ment­ing on the sale, Mr Fer­gu­son says philo­soph­i­cally: ‘The Fer­gu­son fam­ily has had a huge amount of fun at Bloom­fields over the past 22 years. We have loved liv­ing here, train­ing horses here and the chil­dren have all grown up here, but it’s time for the next chap­ter.’
