The Situation

This stunning family residence enjoys a wonderfully private yet easily accessible position, forming one of only five properties located on the highly exclusive Hincheslea estate, in the heart of the open forest. The property benefits from stunning views and is surrounded by open fields, heathland and woodland with direct forest access for those with a love of riding, walking and the great outdoors.

The Hincheslea estate lies in a south-westerly direction, 1¾ miles from the centre of Brockenhurst village. The village of Brockenhurst benefits from a mainline station with direct trains to London Waterloo and the North. The village has an extensive range of local shops, restaurants and cafés, a primary school, a renowned tertiary college and the prestigious Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club. 

The Hincheslea estate occupies an outlying spur of land close to Long Slade Bottom. It was one of four local Saxon manors mentioned in 1086 in the Domesday Book. Surrounding the estate are beautiful, wildlife-rich New Forest landscapes including the ancient, unenclosed woodlands of Hincheslea Wood; Hincheslea Bog; lowland heath around Hincheslea Moor and Horseshoe Bottom; as well as the re-seeded grasslands of Long Slade Bottom.

Living in Brockenhurst

It is Brockenhurst’s mainline station (service into London Waterloo approximately 90 minutes) that turns the dream of a country idyll into reality for those working up in London and makes Brockenhurst village a property hot spot.

Brockenhurst is the largest village in the New Forest, a thriving and lively mix of community and cachet, quality and quirky with all the necessary essentials of a proper working village - butcher, bakery and greengrocer, full quota of cafes and tea houses, plus services such as doctor, dentist and post office. Work into the equation the unexpected and the glamorous: premier golf course, luxurious spa and top restaurants such as The Pig (the first in the group of hip country house hotels) and Cambium (fine dining at Careys Manor)... It all makes Brockenhurst a gem in the heart of the Forest.

Property ranges from Edwardian villas to thatched timber-framed cottages, and imaginative new builds to old Forest lodges. Many properties have access or views to open Forest and almost all are within walking distance of the station. Looking for an Estate Agent in Brockenhurst? Spencers are here to help.
