The sought after Downland village of Rockbourne sits amidst lovely rolling countryside, much of which is a designated Conservation Area. Rockbourne is home to a thriving community that benefits from a reputable primary school - which is within close walking distance - a village hall, a church and popular public house. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (4 miles) provides a comprehensive range of day to day services, including schooling, a medical/health centre, a good range of local shops, a building society and a library. The excellent communications network allows ready access to the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton; all have mainline rail links to London Waterloo and there are airports at the latter two. A myriad of footpaths and bridleways exist in the surrounding area and there is magnificent outriding to be had on Whitsbury Downs; the contrasting moor, heath and woodland of the New Forest is approximately four miles to the East.

The property is approached through double gates to a gravelled parking area, enclosed by brick walling and mature shrubbery. A further gate leads to the gardens and onto the front door.

The cottage gardens to the rear of the property provide a tranquil setting, private and mature with lawn, flower beds and borders with railway sleepers raising and supporting the beds. A stream runs along the rear boundary which is a pleasant additional feature.
