Moor Cottage lies at the heart of the ancient village of Fritham, a designated Conservation Area entirely surrounded by the New Forest National Park. The property itself enjoys far-fetched views across the New Forest and has access to the numerous walks around the parish.
Whilst Moor Cottage is set in a delightful country position, the property is by no means remote. The highly regarded school of Embley is just a 15-minute drive away as well as several other schools such as Moyles Court, King Edward VI in Southampton and the Grammar schools of Salisbury.
Junction 1 of the M27 is under 4 miles away and links to the M3 for London and Winchester. The cathedral city of Salisbury (14 miles) and the market town of Romsey (9 miles) are easily accessible, as is Southampton city centre (15 miles). From the central railway station London Waterloo is about 80 minutes, with an alternative journey time of around 70 minutes from Southampton Airport Parkway (16 miles).
From our Ringwood Office, proceed eastbound on the A31 for 8 miles before turning left onto Forest Road with signs directing towards Fritham. Follow Forest Road for approximately 1.8 miles of which the property will be situated and easily visible to a gravelled forest track on the left hand side.
Living in Bramshaw
This is surely New Forest life at its most accessible. Turn off the M27 at junction one and you are immediately plunged into the quiet backwaters of the Forest, gently weaving past donkeys and ponies grazing in front of Hanzel and Gretel-style woodland cottages. This is Bramshaw, an attractive and peaceful parish that encompasses the hamlets of Brook and Fritham. Bramshaw is strung out. Its handful of amenities include Bramshaw Golf Club (with two courses, including Hampshire’s oldest course), village hall, rustic garage and Bentley showroom. There’s also a selection of good inns including The Bell Inn and Green Dragon at Brook and the Royal Oak at Fritham (a Forest institution and part of a working farm). Local groups range from Bramshaw Bunnies for pre-school toddlers to the local cricket club. Back roads through the Forest lead to Romsey, a thriving market town with numerous facilities (including Waitrose). Property comprises big, individual houses, farms and small-holdings, and cottages tucked down country lanes, scattered around glades and greens. The National Trust owns tracts of land here including Bramshaw Commons, thousands of acres of some of the best surviving examples of lowland heath in Europe.
