New Hall Stud is a well established stud farm with an enviable reputation situated in a peaceful quiet road about 2 miles from Coylton. It is ideally placed for the market town of Ayr and Ayr Racecourse which has a large number of fixtures and excellent facilities for race horses.

The property has magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and is in a convenient location for easy access to Ayr, Glasgow and beyond via the newly improved A77 and M77. From New Hall Stud Farm, Glasgow City Centre can be reached in approximately 45 minutes. In addition there is a regular train service from Ayr to Glasgow and Glasgow Prestwick Airport is only about 20 minutes drive away offering regular international flights.

Coylton has a primary school, shops and a medical practice, whilst Ayr is the County Town on the Firth of Clyde with a wide range of amenities including cinema, excellent shopping and supermarkets, and first class private and state schools together with a good range of restaurants and sports facilities.

Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including the world famous facilities at Turnberry and Royal Troon. There are exceptional yachting facilities at the Marinas in Troon, Largs and Inverkip. There are many opportunities for game sports in the region with some of South West Scotland’s best salmon and trout fishing available in the area’s lochs and rivers. Alloway, south of Ayr, is famous as the birthplace of Robert Burns.


New Hall Stud is well situated and equipped for a wide variety of equestrian uses. Established about 20 years ago by Gordon Thom, its principal function has been breeding race horses. It would also make an exceptional centre for the competition rider or a livery yard.

The farm is well laid out with an immaculate modern house and numerous carefully designed buildings and 12 well fenced paddocks.


Completed in 2001, the house is built on one level of brick with a slate roof and rendered finish, it stands in a wonderful peaceful position with lovely views over the garden and paddocks. Completed to a high standard by the current owner with around 2017 square feet of accommodation, it has been beautifully extended with a stunning oak framed living room with exposed beams and rafters giving the house special character and overlooking the private gardens. The house comprises entrance hall, sitting room, living room, kitchen / dining room, 3 bedrooms (master en suite), utility room, cloakroom and bathroom. The house is well positioned close to the Stud Yard with a private drive.

Steps lead to the front glazed door and entrance hall. The light and bright sitting room has a lovely contemporary gas fire, built in plasma tv, coving and cherry laminate flooring. The bedrooms all have built in wardrobes and a master en suite shower room. There is a spacious family bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, w.c., sink and bidet. The delightful kitchen / dining room has a good variety of fitted storage units with marble worktop and single sink, tiled flooring and SMEG Range Cooker with 6 ring burner and electric oven. Off the kitchen is the utility room housing the boiler, with plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer and door to outside, and there is a cloakroom w.c.

From the kitchen, bi-folding sliding doors lead to the fabulous living room which has been designed to make the most of the splendid views which floods the room with natural light, with double height green oak beams, tiled flooring with underfloor heating, a lovely contemporary gas stove and French doors opening to the enclosed rear gardens. There is plenty of storage space throughout the house.


From the deep gravelled drive this leads to a parking area to the side of the house. The front garden has an attractive stone wall and the gardens are mainly down to lawn with a climbing rose, monkey puzzle and an area for growing fruit and vegetables. The rear gardens are mainly down to lawn enclosed by fencing with hydrangeas, holly trees, and an outcrop of natural whinstone rock with a lovely water feature.

From the gardens, a stone arch with a cedar gate leads to a walkway with planted whitebeams leads to the office.
