About Maidwell Lodge Farm

There is a 60 x 40m manège, a 4 furlong gallop and a lunge pen, all with Andrews Bowen surface, and 24 acres of turnout, which also provides excellent hacking. The cross country jumps include a water complex. Last but by no means least, there is staff accommodation for six people.
