The property is situated in the picturesque New Forest village of Hale, located within the idyllic and unspoilt North Westerly corner of the New Forest National Park. Hale is a delightful thriving village green, yet is just a short drive away from the small town of Fordingbridge, comprising a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and amenities as well as good schooling. The surrounding New Forest offers thousands of acres of heath and woodland ideal for a variety of outdoor pursuits, particularly bike and horse riding. The easily accessible A338 gives access to the cathedral city of Salisbury, with mainline railway to London (approximately 7 miles north), and the bustling coastal towns of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (approximately 17 miles south). Southampton is approximately 19 miles east (via the M27), and London approximately a two hour drive (via the M27/M3/M25).
Exit Ringwood along the A338 Ringwood to Fordingbridge road and continue past Fordingbridge and onto the village of Downton. Turn right taking you through Downton and exit this village now taking onto Woodfalls. Stay on this road passing through Wood falls and this road becomes Forest Road. Continue along Forest road until you reach Tethering Drove and you will come to the property immediately before on your left.

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.
