Upon entering the cottage, the entrance hallway provides access to the ground floor accommodation and also offers a staircase rising to first floor.

Immediately to the left is a spacious and light cottage kitchen which overlooks the front garden and also benefits from a pantry cupboard and larder.

Another door leads through to a delightful sitting room which comprises a central brick fireplace with a charming log burning stove, enjoying a lovely outlook over the rear garden.

The sitting room is open to the dining room, which benefits from a rear aspect and leads back into the entrance hall. Both the sitting room and dining room are laid with original wooden flooring.

A staircase rises to the first-floor landing, giving access to two double bedrooms, both of which have space for wardrobes and benefit from wonderful views of the rear garden, neighbouring paddocks and open forest beyond.

The spacious family bathroom comprises a bath, WC and basin, completing the first-floor accommodation.


The property is centrally located in, arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest, ideally situated to make full use of all the wonderful facilities the Forest has to offer. Whether it be sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or golf at one of the many courses in the area including Brockenhurst with its mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 90 mins.) The market town of Ringwood is but a short drive away (5 miles). The larger shopping towns of Southampton (20 miles) to the east and Bournemouth (16 miles) to the west, both with their airports, are easily accessible.


A wooden five-bar gate provides access to the gravel laid driveway, providing parking for several vehicles. A generous cottage style garden leads to the front of the property. A walkway along the side of the cottage leads to the rear garden, which is laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedge boundaries.

Living in Burley

The first Spencers New Forest office was established here in Burley, a honeypot village that feels untouched by time with its traditional cafes, cider farm, gift shops and tales of old smuggling routes, witches and dragons.

This is the New Forest on holiday as imagined by visitors: quaint and old-fashioned with ponies wandering down the high street. In Burley there’s a perpetual feeling of having escaped, that you are away from it all, especially as it is tucked in the lee of wooded slopes.

In fact Burley has easy access to the A31 (across heathland with spectacular views) and routes west to Bournemouth and east to Southampton, while the mainline station at Brockenhurst is only a short drive away across the Forest.

There’s a lovely sense of community in Burley and it is noticeable that once people move here many are reluctant to move out of the area. A range of activities to enjoy locally includes cycling, horse riding, coarse fishing and Burley Golf Club with a nine-hole heathland course.

The property market is dominated by picturesque thatched cottages and large country homes that feel discreetly hidden away, many with access to open Forest.

A rare and exciting opportunity to purchase this charming semi-detached forest cottage which dates back to the 1920’s and was originally built for the gardeners of Durmast House. The property is situated in one of the most desirable locations in the New Forest National Park; with the open forest on the doorstep and also located within easy reach of the village amenities. This two-bedroom cottage retains reams of charm and character and would now benefit from a programme of refurbishment, whilst also offering the potential to extend (STPP).
