Situated in a semi-rural position some 2¼ miles west of the Georgian market town of Lymington, a world renowned sailing centre with stunning river walks, deep water marinas and yacht clubs. To the north east is the New Forest village of Brockenhurst with a mainline rail connection (London/Waterloo 90 minutes approx.) There is a further rail connection from Sway, which also has a range of local shops and is accessible to the extensive walks and riding available throughout the New Forest National Park. Approximately 4 miles west of the property is the town of New Milton that affords comprehensive leisure, shopping and educational facilities, again with a mainline rail connection. The coastline fronting Christchurch Bay, with it the pretty coastal village of Milford on Sea, is situated some 3 miles south offering safe sea swimming opportunities.

Beyond the cottage’s walls, an inviting garden. With off-road parking available for two vehicles. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn and tasteful shrub borders. This outdoor space provides a seamless extension of the cottage’s inviting atmosphere.

As you step through the front door, you’re greeted by a generously proportioned living room exuding warmth and character. The centerpiece is a captivating red brick fireplace with woodburner, infusing the room with a cozy ambiance that draws you in. The living room is a versatile space that could easily serve as a study or office, accommodating various lifestyle needs. An archway seamlessly connects to the dining area. Continuing through, you’ll discover the thoughtfully designed kitchen, complete with ample cabinet storage and expansive countertop space. Essential modern appliances, including an electric oven and hob, ensure culinary endeavours are a breeze. Enjoy the convenience of the sink overlooking the side entrance, enhancing the functional flow of this inviting space.

Ascending the staircase, the upper level unveils two generously sized double bedrooms, each offering a unique perspective. The second bedroom graces the front of the cottage and overlooks open countryside (view from the second bedroom can be seen on page 8/ last page of the brochure), while the master bedroom overlooks the serene rear surroundings. Adding to the master bedroom’s appeal is an additional area, perfect for adapting into a dressing space, a home office, or en suite – truly a versatile canvas to cater to your preferences.

Living in Sway

This leafy village on the southern edge of the New Forest has everything you could want for family life in the Forest. There’s a village primary school rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, a vibrant community with annual carnival, village hall (activities range from archery to yoga), plus cricket, football and tennis clubs. And while there’s easy access to the Forest’s open grassland, heathland and woodland for dog walking and cycling, Sway is off the Forest’s usual tourist tracks and feels peaceful and relaxed.

The village centre combines the unusual with the desirable: a contemporary arts hub, quality businesses like Sway Woodburning Centre, mainline railway station, choice of popular pubs, good cafe/deli, award-winning butcher’s, village store and post office among others.

Property is an attractive pick ‘n’ mix of everything including substantial country houses, individual modern builds in good-sized plots, family homes, imaginative refurbishments, closes of quality new terraces, chalet bungalows and a smattering of Edwardian semi-detached villas and thatched cottages.

Sway’s claims to fame include 200-foot high Sway Tower, the tallest structure made out of non-reinforced concrete, and the countryside around Sway was the setting for Captain Marryat’s work The Children of the New Forest.
