The property is situated in the picturesque New Forest village of Woodgreen, located within the idyllic and un spoilt North Westerly corner of the New Forest National Park.

The easily accessible A338 gives access to the cathedral city of Salisbury, with mainline railway to London (approximately 8 miles north), and the bustling coastal towns of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (approximately 18 miles south). Southampton is approximately 20 miles east (via the M27), and London approximately a two hour drive. (via the M27/M3/M25).

Continue for approximately 10 miles and upon reaching Breamore you will see a signpost for Woodgreen, turn right and proceed over the bridge. Immediately after the Horse and Groom Public House, turn right and continue up the hill, at the crossroads turn right down Brook Lane. Continue down this road for approximately ¼ mile and there will be a public footpath on the right hand side. Park your car here and walk down the public footpath and Iona will be on your left hand side.
