The property is located in the heart of Nomansland, a small, highly sought after village on the northern edge of the New Forest and Hampshire border. The centre of the village has frontage to a large green which includes the village cricket pitch, with woodland and forest beyond. The village boasts a number of well recognised amenities and facilities including a well regarded local pub (the Lamb), an exceptional French restaurant (Les Mirabelles) and an excellent local school with impressive Ofsted reports. The neighbouring village of Landford has local shops including a post office and village store, as well as a village primary school. The historic town of Romsey is approximately eight miles away offering a more comprehensive range of shops and a Waitrose supermarket.
Salisbury and Southampton are within easy reach by car and there is convenient access to the M27 motorway with links at Junction 1 and 2.
Exit Ringwood onto the A31 heading east until you reach junction 1 of the M27. Come off here and turn immediately left onto the B3079. This will take you through Brook and Bramshaw and stay on this road until you reach Nomansland, cross another cattlegrid and then turn left into Forest road and continue along this road and take the fifth exit on the right into North lane, over cattlegrid and then this road becomes Lyburn Road, after about three quarters of a mile you will come to the entrance on your left.
Living in Milford on Sea
Milford on Sea is currently a property hot spot. It is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire and is delightfully picturesque with a proper village green at its centre. This green is often the focus for popular village events such as maypole dancing and the annual food festival and is fringed by a range of independents (including antiques shops, butcher’s, chemists and greengrocer’s). Recently Milford has developed something of a reputation as a foodie destination with its collection of tea rooms, bistros, wine bar, fish and chips and specialist fish restaurant, plus more.
This is a vibrant village with a friendly and lively community, and appeals to both young families (the primary school has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted) and older couples looking for somewhere on the coast to relax. The old-fashioned seafront stretches from Hurst spit and Keyhaven nature reserve in the east towards Christchurch Harbour to the west, and enjoys lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and the Needles.
A good mix of properties includes striking contemporary seafront homes and cliff top apartments with big sea views, quaint terraced old fishermen’s cottages and some substantial 1920s and 1930s Ravenscroft arts and crafts influenced homes in and around Barnes Lane.
