The property has a wonderful forest location allowing easy access to forest walks, horse riding and nearby ponds and beaches. Situated nearby are Beaulieu village, Bucklers Hard and the Georgian market town of Lymington which lies to the West with its sought after marinas and yacht clubs. There is also a popular marina at nearby Bucklers Hard and the Beaulieu River Sailing Club offers opportunities for sailing enthusiasts. The attractive town of Lymington has a number of supermarkets and independent shops including some designer boutiques and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes, and the motorway networks surrounding Southampton are also within direct travelling distance. There are many well regarded schools in the surrounding area.

In addition there is a wood store, home built log cabin, greenhouse and garden shed. The grounds are mainly lawned with numerous mature planting, bushes and trees. There is significant privacy and we are advised that there are no preservation orders on the plot.

Beaulieu, as its name suggests, is beautiful. This village is a jewel of the New Forest, sitting prettily beside the River Beaulieu with Palace House, the seat of the Montagu family, as backdrop. This is an estate village which has been in the keeping of the Montagu family for 477 years. Today Beaulieu is familiar worldwide for the National Motor Museum, but the village attracts visitors, too. It has a quaint High Street of smart independents in pretty brick and timber-framed period properties, including art gallery, chocolate studio, floral designer, plus gift shops, tea room, village stores, garden centre, community garden and the village school (rated ‘good’ by Ofsted).
