Peters Hold Farm nestles in the heart of the New Forest to the south of the desirable village of Minstead. Minstead is a delightful and unspoilt village with a vibrant community, a shop with a café tearoom, village hall and the popular The Trusty Servant Inn. Minstead church is well known as it is the resting place of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes. The village also has the beautiful Furzey Gardens run by the Minstead Trust and open to the public. Though easily accessible being close to junction 1 of the M27 the village is surrounded by woodland which adds to the tranquillity of this thriving village.
The New Forest offers thousands of acres of unspoilt moors, heath and woodland for those with walking and equestrian pursuits. For those with interests in yachting, Hamble, Lymington and Poole are all within easy driving distance. There is easy access to the M27 for the south coast and Southampton which links to the M3 for Winchester and London. The larger commercial centres of Southampton and Bournemouth are readily accessible via the excellent road links of the A31 and M27. There are two local airports, and Waterloo Station is within an hour from Southampton Parkway railway station
Schools for all ages, both state and private, are readily available.
There is a useful range of outbuildings and two stable blocks with six stables in total. The land is divided into manageable sized paddocks which have been well maintained by the vendor and grazed in hand with sheep and horses.
The outbuildings at Peters Hold Farm comprise a useful and compact range of buildings suitable for equestrian use but could also be used for sheep/cattle and other livestock.
Adjoining the annexe are three concrete block stables which form a small private yard away from the main range of buildings.
To the east of these stables is a useful open fronted machinery and general storage building of concrete block and timber construction under a corrugated roof with a concrete floor. Adjoining this building is a block of three timber stables with a fenced area of hard standing at the front.
To the north of the timber stable block is a concrete block feed store with adjoining two bay steel portal frame livestock building and concrete yard. This building has in the past been used to over winter young cattle but could also be very useful for further stabling.
