Valegro, named after the famous dressage horse that won Olympic gold for Team GB with Charlotte Dujardin, is one of 5 beautiful holiday homes that form The Gallops complex at the Island Riding Centre, which opened in 2017 and is ideally located in the centre of the island just minutes from many attractions and beaches. With a choice of holiday accommodation surrounded by countryside it features a children’s play area, a variety of on site farm animals and unrivalled equestrian facilities making it a popular destination for families, horse lovers and those on business.
Accessed off the pedestrian walkway surrounding the landscaped courtyard with low level threshold, the ground floor features an open plan living space and is ideal for modern family living with a dining area, ample seating and a well-equipped kitchen. French doors lead out to a south-facing patio garden with seating for alfresco dining, whilst overlooking a paddock housing Shetland ponies and the centre’s resident sheep, Lambo and Cloudy. Suitable for small dogs, Valegro has wooden floors throughout the ground floor and the garden is enclosed. A dog bed and bowls are provided with additional stairgate. The Freeview Smart TV is linked to the free Wi-Fi providing a choice of media entertainment including Netflix. An additional ground floor shower room with toilet makes this property ideal for larger groups. The first floor has a master bedroom with kingsize bed, a large twin room, a third bedroom with a full size bunk bed and a family bathroom with shower over bath, and toilet.
With an ’eco-friendly’ ethos, the complex boasts solar panels, rainwater harvesting and a bacteria based waste water treatment facility. Consideration has been given to those with mobility impairment and construction was completed using the National Accessible Scheme (NAS) criteria. This property is comparable to M1, which is typically suitable for a person with sufficient mobility to climb a flight of steps but with the added benefit of a second downstairs bathroom. Ample parking is provided in the adjacent car park, and a free electric charging point is available. A communal area with seating and sun loungers overlooking the paddock is available for guests, as is the enclosed children’s play area with a ‘mini-beach’, sand area and football goals. Shower and toilet wheelchairs, toilet frame, riser and grab rails are available on request, and there is a shared laundry room on-site too.

The equestrian centre boasts a 60m x 25m indoor wax-fibre arena with viewing areas, tack shop and cafe, a 60m x 40m outdoor arena with quality wax surface and superb drainage. For guests wishing to bring their own horses, there is a purpose-built livery yard with horse walker, sheltered wash down area, solarium and ample grazing (subject to ground conditions). On-site hacking is also available as are escorted off-site trail and beach rides.
