Bective Stud Farm

Bective Stud History

The Bective Stud is an impressive 180-acre estate situated in Bective, Co Meath. The Stud Farm was built in 2016 and since is ever growing.

The estate is also home to the  Bective House which was built in 1820 sits on the other side of the estate to the stud farm.

The Stud Farm at Bective is as impressive a facility as you could find. With  46 stables up and running. There is a three-furlong perfect circle gallop, a horse walker, a 60m x 40m arena and lunge ring. EIght winter sand paddocks and 10 grass paddocks. Plans for expansion of all these are expected.

Plans are also in progress to turn the Bective House into a hotel and spa. To add to there impressive Airbnb stays with the grounds, and one of the best in Navan.

The Apartments

Converted Stables

We drove into part of the stud farm where the  old horse stables lied. These stables have been transformed, and been made into immaculate appointed apartments.

Inside The Bective Stud Accommodation

As we entered the accommodation we couldn’t believe what we had stumbled apon.

We walked into a kitchen, dining and lounge area. The finishes and furnishings were just top quality, almost show home like.

The kitchen was well equipped with all your cooking needs, no need to bring anything other than the food itself.

The Sofas were as comfy as you could possibly get, so much so you would just sink into them. And let me tell you we did after a day of exploring

The Upstairs

Wandering up the stairs you come across this bright hallway with some great artwork, which really brightened up the accommodation.

Entering the rooms, like downstairs the furnishings and features were so well finished. Very simply done with just beds and bedside tables, but with a very luxurious feel.

The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms well heated.

The bathroom was modern and again surprisingly good quality, no expense was spared with this Airbnb.

The Outside Shared Garden

Opposite the stables we were greeted with a fantastic outside area named, Vals garden after one of the Owners. Made perfectly for entertaining, relaxing or somewhere to enjoy your morning cuppa.

The surrounding gardens were in pristine condition and so eloquently kept.

The Grounds

You are free to roam the grounds, you can see horses from the collection of Bective’s horses on show in there own fields and the workers out feeling and training them. The space the horses had to roam was phenomenal.

In progress during our visit but not completed were walking tracks through the grounds of the estate and stud itself. Also in progress of being built is the Bective Stud tea rooms, which is looking to open at the end of 2021.

What’s Near By

Being so near to Navan center, you are so close to some great experiences. Such as the ruins of Bective Abbey, the renowned Hill Of Tara and also the impressive Trim Castle.

For families there is  Causey Farm, which is within 20 minutes. A petting farm, with a whole host of fun kids activities, and free ice cream for all the kids.

A fine accommodation in Navan in the heart of County Meath, a stay anybody would enjoy and certainly if your interest in horses is high, its certainly worth booking up.

As mentioned great access to a whole host of places to visit. And great access if you want to be near Dublin but away from the city itself.

This looks like a really special property and with stunning grounds to boot. Still haven’t been to Ireland, let alone Dublin, but have jotted this down in my grand travel notebook. Thanks for the share!

Thanks for reading Leighton uts a great stay and far enough away from the madness if Dublin but close enough to commute in. You should certainly get over Ireland has many beautiful places to visit and lots of Guiness 😀

What a unique and cosy accommodation! I like the style and the nearby attractions make it a great choice.

Looks like a fun place to stay at, and so close to Dublin. Here in London, as you know, we love to live in our converted stables too (the mews houses). To me ‘stud farm’ sounds somewhat archaic, so it was interesting to read that it was only built a few years ago and that it’s growing on a massive scale.

What a unique place to stay! I’ve never heard of stables being turned into accommodation but why not as it looks so nice. I especially like the art as it’s very eye catching. Staying at a stud farm just sounds very cool too!

Looks like a nice place to stay! Looking at the interior of the apartments, I would never say that it’s a converted stables! 🙂

Now this is my type of accommodation, we’ve stayed in a few converted stables over the years. I’d definitely book the Bective Stud Farm if we visit Navan. Love the horse sculptures out the front!
