GROUNDS & GARDENS
The garden for the property predominantly sits at the front of the main house with access from both the living and dining room. A patio area wraps around the front of the house from the dining room to the front door with stepping stones to a small garden section that sits off the living room and a gate that leads to the garage.
A couple of stairs lead down from the patio to generous lawned garden. This area is predominantly bordered by hedging and fencing with a picket gate giving you access from the front.
A further area sits to the right of the house through a five bar gate, which gives access for another property, the garage and further parking area.
The front door leads into the main tiled hallway which in turn gives you access to the downstairs accommodation. A bright and airy dining room sits to the left of the hallway which offers a formal dining area and French doors leading out to the garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room offers both low and eye level units with wooden work surfaces and built in cooker and sink. Stairs lead from here up to the first floor. From the kitchen you enter a sitting room with in-set log burner and French doors that gives further access to the garden.
At the back of the main hallway a study area leads through into a utility room, downstairs W/C and lean to with access to garden.
Stairs from the kitchen take you up to the first floor where there are four good sized bedrooms, one of which has built in wardrobes and also a three piece family bathroom.
Willow Cottage is centrally located in arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest and within the National Park. Burley has a local primary school, good local amenities, pubs, restaurants, a Church, village hall and golf course. The property is less than a ten minute walk from both the village centre and the open forest and is 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 minutes.) 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 both easily accessible.
THE LOCAL AREA
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. There’s a lovely sense of community and a range of activities to enjoy locally including cycling, horse riding, coarse fishing and the Burley Golf Club with a nine-hole heathland course.

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.
