After more than a year of searching for a piece of land to house herself and her array of pets and horses, Karen Inkster is now becoming rather desperate. The market is stagnant due to the uncertainty over Brexit and according to estate agents, that isn’t going to change until next year.

“For the past year I have been been desperately trying to find land to buy. I want to set up a small natural equine centre.

“Despite being registered with every estate agent and even contacting some estates directly I still cannot find anything suitable. I sold my own cottage in 18 days and I’m currently in rented accommodation, but I cannot stay here much longer and will soon again be homeless with my 11 animals, all rescues, four hens, two cats, one dog, two horses and two sheep.”

Karen is looking for a minimum of eight acres, and ideally it has to be in Perth (to be near family), Fife, Angus or Stirling. She is looking to live a quite life with her rescue animals and set up her equine centre. The land is more important than accommodation, as she is happy to live in a caravan while building or restoring a property.

Karen is hoping her plea gets to someone who has been thinking about selling a piece of land but has just never got around to it. Is there someone out there with land that would enjoy seeing her natural equine centre flourish, or there may be someone who has an old cottage in a field that needs work and doesn’t have the time to deal with it?

Karen is a dream buyer, she sold her cottage, the money is in the bank and she is ready to go at a moment’s notice.

Karen has also written about a recent 300km Outer Hebrides adventure with her pony and has raised more than £6000 for Riding for the Disabled on the back of her trip and sales of her book documenting the trip.
