Set within the grounds is a tennis court and floodlit 60ft x 20ft riding arena, which is one of the few full size dressage arenas in the area.


There are three separate outbuildings that are located on the land with the property offering a variety of usage. Two of the outbuildings sit ideally placed close to the riding school and land access which offer stabling, tack room, storage and hay store.

A further outbuilding sits within the courtyard of the main property offering further stables, store room and tack room and also with the added benefit of a large open fronted implement barn ideal for garaging.

The property occupies a secluded semi-rural position on the edge of the delightful village of Sway. Nestling on the Southern edge of the New Forest National Park, Sway is a fine example of a quiet yet thriving village community, renowned for its friendliness. The village offers a useful mainline rail connection (London Waterloo approximately 100 minutes) together with a range of shops, a highly regarded primary school, two public houses and a popular Tennis Club.

The Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its river, marinas, yacht clubs, boutique shops and coastline, is within an easy 4 mile drive over the forest. The neighbouring New Forest village of Brockenhurst, again with a mainline rail connection, offers further leisure, shopping and educational amenities, as well as a popular 18 hole championship golf course.

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.
