A large covered entrance porch connects the pretty cottage to the studio/office and incorporates plumbing for the washing machine, a stable door leading out to the rear garden and access into the kitchen/dining room. This room forms the hub of the house with a log burning stove in the dining area which is divided from the kitchen by a wooden topped island providing ample storage.

The kitchen has space for a range style cooker, a range of cupboards and an open pantry with a door to the rear garden. There are two more walk-in pantry/store cupboards in this area.

The main triple aspect sitting room is of a generous size with ornate wooden fire surround to the log burning stove and glazed door out to the front garden.

The studio/home office on the ground floor is a large room with windows to the rear with a cloakroom to one end and ideal for use as ancillary accommodation/bedroom four.

Stairs lead to a generous landing with an airing cupboard housing the hot water immersion heater with tank in the loft above. There are three bedrooms, two double rooms with double aspect windows and fitted storage cupboards, and a single bedroom with double aspect windows. All are served by the family bathroom with a shower above the bath, basin and WC. There are two loft hatches leading to the insulated loft space.

The property enjoys a lovely semi rural setting with views across the fields to the side and rear. The village of Hordle is a close neighbour of the small and busy town of New Milton to the west, and the Georgian market town of Lymington to the east and the popular seaside village of Milford on Sea to the south.

A general store is complimented by a selection of further shops on Stopples Lane, two local pubs and an ‘Ofsted’ outstanding Hordle Primary School. For leisure activities, the choice of wonderful coastal walks at Keyhaven and Milford on Sea is matched by the New Forest, which provides an area of outstanding natural beauty with ancient woods and heathland enjoyed by riders and walkers alike.

A feature of note is the delightful plot extending to some 1/2 acre with the cottage set in the centre, surrounded by gardens on all sides and enjoying a lovely sunny aspect. There are mature hedges forming the boundaries and a long winding gravel entrance driveway leads from Vaggs Lane to the part constructed oak framed garage/barn complex.

To the rear of the plot is a large concrete barn with sliding entrance doors, ideal for vehicles or machinery or boat storage, along with an area of hard standing nearby. The plot is well screened with fields to the side and rear of the plot allowing for a high degree of privacy.


Living in Hordle

Hordle is a little known gem of a village: a scattered settlement that is perfectly situated between the New Forest and the coast, west of Lymington. The parish of Hordle also includes the villages of Tiptoe and Everton and part of the hamlet of Downton.

Hordle is a popular destination for home hunters. Families are attracted by the village primary school and nursery that is consistently rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED and described as ‘a happy school where everyone smiles’. Business people like its situation between two mainline stations at New Milton and Sway. Retirees are drawn to the range of useful facilities, among them good country pubs (such as The Crown at Everton), local shops (including a co-op, garage, hair salon, pet store and pharmacy), and strong community spirit. Sports pavilions and recreation grounds at Hordle and Everton provide local hubs with activities ranging from cricket to football, gardening to yoga, and walking to wine appreciation groups.

Property provides something for most house hunters, including old thatch cottages, farmhouses, stylish new builds and grand country houses. However, the area mostly comprises quiet leafy roads of chalet bungalows and family homes built from the mid-century onwards, and edged by a countryside of field and woodland with that easy access to open Forest and the Solent.
