The approach is via a wooden five bar gate to a gravel front driveway. There is a mature hedge to the front boundary providing a high degree of privacy to the cottage.

A feature of note is the mature west facing rear garden. There is a wide variety of fruit trees and an avenue of pleached apples trees, a small wildlife pond and some specimen shrubs. A lawn pathway meanders throughout the garden. To one side of the cottage is a detached garage with electric door. A set of double gates between the garage and house lead to the rear garden. There is also a large timber workshop positioned behind the garage.

A central front door leads to the hallway and a door leads to the dining area open to the sitting room with a log burning stove and french doors to the delightful garden.

The hall leads into the generous farmhouse style kitchen with Aga range cooker and a selection of freestanding and fitted storage. A single door leads into the hardwood conservatory which incorporates a utility room.

From the conservatory a door leads into the large ground floor bathroom with shower cubicle and WC. From the kitchen a further door leads into the study/family room. An inner lobby has the staircase to the first floor accommodation.

There are three double bedrooms and the bedroom to the front of the house has far reaching views across the adjacent farmland. The large family bathroom serves all bedrooms and has a bath, shower, WC and ornate original hand basin.

Tiptoe is a small forest village with two churches, a school, an associated pre-school and a pub. The forest is easily accessible and brings you onto Boundway, one of the most attractive areas of the forest with far reaching views and stunning walks.

Some two miles west is the village of Sway offering railway links to London and the south coast, in addition to a variety of local amenities. The market town of Lymington, famous for its internationally renowned sailing facilities and marinas along with its Saturday market, is approximately 5 miles south west of Wootton.

The property is conveniently situated within a short drive of the A35 and is within easy reach of motorways and rail links together with both Bournemouth and Southampton International Airports, this making it an ideal location for those with a requirement to commute.

Living in Sway

This leafy village on the southern edge of the New Forest has everything you could want for family life in the Forest. There’s a village primary school rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, a vibrant community with annual carnival, village hall (activities range from archery to yoga), plus cricket, football and tennis clubs. And while there’s easy access to the Forest’s open grassland, heathland and woodland for dog walking and cycling, Sway is off the Forest’s usual tourist tracks and feels peaceful and relaxed.

The village centre combines the unusual with the desirable: a contemporary arts hub, quality businesses like Sway Woodburning Centre, mainline railway station, choice of popular pubs, good cafe/deli, award-winning butcher’s, village store and post office among others.

Property is an attractive pick ‘n’ mix of everything including substantial country houses, individual modern builds in good-sized plots, family homes, imaginative refurbishments, closes of quality new terraces, chalet bungalows and a smattering of Edwardian semi-detached villas and thatched cottages.

Sway’s claims to fame include 200-foot high Sway Tower, the tallest structure made out of non-reinforced concrete, and the countryside around Sway was the setting for Captain Marryat’s work The Children of the New Forest.
