The property sits on a charming, private plot accessed via electric gates, with off-road parking adjacent. The driveway leads to a large, detached garage with an electric door, providing ample parking and potential storage space with its pitched roof. The garage also includes utility and workshop areas.

The cottage enjoys a secluded and sunny garden, featuring a lush lawned area, various shrubs, a summer house, and a paved patio adjacent to the property.

Additionally, there are two separate courtyard areas, one accessible from ‘Toads Pad’, the potential annexe which offers its own small garden space. A summer house, equipped with power and water, adds to the outdoor amenities.

Adjacent to the garden lies a sizable area of unclaimed grassland, presenting an opportunity to expand the existing garden area which the current vendors are pursuing.


The property is situated inside the southern edge of The New Forest, within 1/2 a mile of open forest and just four miles from the coast which offers cliff top walks, beaches, and spectacular views over the Solent and the Isle of Wight.

Local amenities at New Milton are within one mile with schools for all age groups including the renowned Ballard School nearby. The Georgian coastal town of Lymington is within eight miles where you will find a range of boutique shops, many fine restaurants, excellent sailing facilities, and a thirty minute car ferry crossing to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.

The property is well placed for access to other major towns and cities including Bournemouth (13 miles), Southampton (19 miles) and Winchester (31 miles), with a link to London Waterloo via New Milton (2 hours) or Brockenhurst (1 hour 40 minutes).


Upon entering, there is a spacious entrance porch that leads to the open-plan hallway, featuring a convenient downstairs cloakroom. The inviting living room seamlessly connects to the garden, boasting a fireplace with a log burner, flowing into the family/dining room.

The well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room opens onto one of the courtyard areas, offering a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living.

Continuing, there is a further and extremely versatile room which could serve as either an additional ground floor bedroom or a reception room with a kitchenette area, providing access to a courtyard garden.

A striking spiral staircase leads up to a bedroom with an ensuite shower/wet room, offering potential for a self-contained annexe.

Ascending to the first floor, the landing leads to three double bedrooms, each offering picturesque rural views. The principal bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, whilst the remaining two bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom, which features a roll top freestanding bath and a separate walk-in shower.
