A picket gate between hedgerow borders opens onto the front garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn with a pathway leading up to the front of the property and a gated driveway providing access to the garage. The south-westerly facing rear garden is a particular feature of the property, being mainly laid to lawn with stunning views across neighboring paddock land and access to a useful garden shed on the right-hand side. Adjoining the rear of the property is a paved sun terrace linking to the dining room and providing an ideal space for al’fresco dining.
Situated in the front garden, there is a studio/home office, formed from a brick and timber construction with double glazed windows to the side elevation, a cathedral style window to the front elevation and a porthole window to the rear elevation.

Park cottage lies just over a mile from the centre of, 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.
To the front aspect an entrance porch opens into a central entrance hall providing access to a double aspect sitting room with feature fireplace to one side and a study with feature fireplace and Sash window to the other. At the end of the hallway, a door opens into a generous dining room with a part exposed brick wall and engineered oak flooring, which extends into a bay with windows set either side of a door opening out onto the terrace. Open to the dining room is a kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a comprehensive range of units and appliances to three sides, with additional central island unit. The kitchen/breakfast room features engineered oak flooring and enjoys views over the rear aspect, with a door to the other end opening onto the driveway. Set to the other side of the dining room is a double aspect utility room providing access to a separate cloakroom and the rear garden. To the first floor, a central landing area extends through the property to provide access to all bedroom accommodation. The double aspect principal bedroom is set to the rear of the property, enjoying elevated views across the rear gardens and neighboring paddocks. This bedroom is complemented by a superb, fully tiled en-suite shower room featuring an oversized walk-in shower with glass screen, rainwater shower head and separate handheld attachment, wash basin and W.C. There are three further bedrooms to this level, two of which benefit from built-in wardrobes and feature fireplaces. All of the bedrooms enjoy elevated views across different aspects and are served by a modern family bathroom compromising a paneled bath, wash basin and WC.
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.
