Situation:

The property is situated in a semi-rural location on the very edge (but not in) the New Forest National Park. As you step out of the gates, you are immediately within a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) overseen by the National Trust. The forest itself offers thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland, ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding.

Ringwood is approximately one mile distant, offering a comprehensive range of shops and facilities. This old market town is positioned on the edge of the New Forest, with easy access to the beautiful sandy beaches along the south coast.

It is an increasingly popular destination for home hunters; the old cattle market has been transformed into a stylish shopping quarter with names such as Hobbs, Joules, Waitrose and Waterstones, and a programme of events that includes live music and farmers’ markets. The adjacent high street has retained its character, with a traditional weekly market, a fine selection of independents and a variety of stylish eateries.

Families are attracted by the sense of community and highly regarded local and private nursery's and schools within easy reach, such as Ellingham House, Moyles Court and Forres Sandle Manor.

For commuters, the easily accessible A338 provides a link to the larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch, whilst the A31/M27 connects to Southampton, Winchester and London beyond via the M3 & M25.
