Vereley Farm is located in a quite wonderful position, being mostly surrounded by forest at the end of a long track. The beautiful nearby village of Burley (1.5 miles) offers a range of boutique shops and restaurants, as well as a dispensing GP surgery, cricket club and a popular 9 hole golf course. For more widespread amenities the market town of Ringwood is within a short drive (3 miles) as is the lovely riverside town of Christchurch whilst the A31 provides easy access onto the M27 and M3. The commercial centres of Bournemouth and Southampton both with their regional airports, and cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are all within a comfortable drive.For those with a love of the great outdoors the National Park and the stunning beaches and coastline of the south are also only a short drive away.
The route to Vereley Farm takes you along an unmade track crossing through stunning forest with ponies, cattle and donkeys meandering right up to the main entrance. The house is accessed via double electric gates opening onto a large block paved driveway offering off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the triple garage complex. Adjoining the driveway is a sun terrace and private garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees and established plant and shrub beds. Vereley Farm sits on a plot of just under ten acres comprising various paddocks and an extensive range of outbuildings including barns stable blocks, workshops and store rooms.

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.
