Nestled in the rural hamlet of Linwood, this property is positioned in the heart of the New Forest National Park. The elevated (High Corner) approach roads with far reaching views have a true sense of returning home to the ‘Shires’. This exceptional location offers direct access to thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland, making it an ideal setting for enthusiasts of walking, cycling, and riding. Adding to the locale’s charm is the proximity to the popular ‘High Corner Inn’, offering fine dining and accommodation. Within walking distance is the ‘Red Shoot Inn’, famed for its own brewery and within riding distance is “the Royal Oak’ at Fritham, which remains totally original.

The Local Area:

Ringwood offers the best of all worlds being the oldest market town positioned on the edge of the New Forest. It is an increasingly popular destination for home hunters. Best known as the home of Ringwood Brewery (inspiration for the current boom in microbreweries), it is undergoing a re-identification. The old cattle market has been transformed into a stylish shopping quarter with names such as Aga, 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 and a selection of independents, a new artisan bakery, and a variety of eateries. Families are attracted by the sense of community and highly regarded secondary school (its sixth form provision rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted).

In addition to being located in a prime forest location the road communications are excellent as the A31 dual carriageway bisects the New Forest and leads directly on to the M27, which links with the M3 for Winchester and London. Southampton and Bournemouth being approximately 16 and 15 miles respectively. For boating enthusiasts various south coast centres are within a reasonable driving distance, notably at Poole, Christchurch and Lymington.


Exit Ringwood along the A338 Ringwood to Fordingbridge road. After about two miles turn right signposted to Linwood. This road will take you over a cattle grid and you bear right over a humped back bridge and then you turn left. Continue along this road which will take you to Linwood. Go through this small hamlet passing the Red Shoot and then down a hill and up again and then you bear left and continue along this road looking out for the signpost to the High Corner Inn. You will come to a lane which will take you down a hill passing the pub on your left and the property will be located on your left hand side, signified by the sign stating Middle Earth.
