Shoot Wood lies about one and a half miles from the centre of, arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest, ideally situated with direct forest access to make full use of all the wonderful features the Forest has to offer. Riding, walking and cycling options are flexible and extensive whatever the weather or time of year with woodland, open heath and forestry commission inclosures all directly accessible.

A wealth of other activities are close by, including sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or golf at one of the many courses in the area.  All are supported by high quality forest and waterside restaurants and eateries including The Kitchen at Chewton Glen, Lime Wood Hotel, and The Pig.

Brockenhurst features a highly respected college and mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 90 minutes). The market towns of Ringwood (7 miles)  and Romsey (19 miles) are but a short drive away. The larger shopping towns of Southampton (20 miles) to the east and Bournemouth (16 miles) to the west, both their airports are easily accessible.


Upon crossing a cattle grid, a gravel driveway leads to a turning circle, centred upon a mature tree to the front of the property, whilst side access leads to garaging at the rear. A double garage with studio above (including sink and a separate WC) creates the perfect room for a home office environment.

The main gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with boundaries comprising mature plants and shrubbery and a delightful sun room. The gardens are particularly private and enjoy a westerly orientation; the entire plot equates to approximately 2.9 acres. The paddock land is split into three flat paddocks with good drainage, all of which are centred upon a fenced manege which was renewed in 2021. A five-bar gate to the side of the plot provides direct forest access.

Outbuildings include a stable block incorporating two large stables, feed room/store, tack room with a WC and hot water supply, a separate implement store, a field shelter which is split into three sections and currently used as additional storage and a large metal sheeted barn which is ideal for storing machinery, hay or bedding.

The snug is a cosy room which benefits from a fireplace and picturesque views over the rear garden and terrace, and onward to the paddocks.

The large, extended, kitchen/breakfast room is a true feature, offering plenty of space for cooking, dining and entertaining. A lantern skylight, along with large windows with two sets of French doors allow for plenty of natural light and access to the patios and rear garden. The Stoneham kitchen is comprehensively fitted with Quartz worktops, a Walnut central island, ample storage, Bora induction hob and extractor, two Siemens ovens including a combi microwave and a Siemens integrated dishwasher.

From the kitchen/breakfast room, access is provided to a secondary kitchen which houses a gas Aga and doubles up as an ideal utility room with an integrated laundry area, integrated Bosch fridge/freezer, further built-in storage and WC. The utility area leads to a practical and comprehensively equipped boot room which provides side access to the residence. The kitchen, utility room and boot room all benefit from Dorchester Porcelain tiled floors and zoned underfloor heating.

Ascending to the first floor via an impressive staircase, a spacious landing leads to four double bedrooms, all of which benefit from views of the grounds. The principal bedroom is a beautiful and light room which enjoys an easterly elevation, bay window and plenty of built in wardrobes. This room features a generous en-suite which comprises a freestanding roll top bath, walk-in shower, WC, wash hand basin and airing cupboard which houses the hot water tank and boiler.

Bedroom 2 is spacious dual aspect suite with feature fireplace and an en-suite comprising a shower, WC and sink. Bedroom 3 and 4 are both good-sized rooms which enjoy an outlook over the garden and land beyond; both of which are served by a family bathroom made up of a bath with shower over, WC and sink. Bedroom 3 also benefits from its own WC and wash hand basin.

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.
