The picturesque village of Martin nestles within the rolling countryside of the Cranborne Chase, where a network of country paths and bridle ways access lovely walking and riding countryside across Martin Down.

The active community is well supported by a village hall, which is home to a community shop, and a church, and the neighbouring village of Damerham (approx 3 miles) has a reputable primary school, garage and popular public house. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (approx. 6 miles) has a range of health, educational, shopping and recreational services sufficient to cater for most day to day needs and the Cathedral City of Salisbury, which offers a broader range of facilities including reputable state and private schooling, is almost equidistant via the A354.

Beyond Fordingbridge the A338 and B3078 provide ready access to Bournemouth and Southampton respectively with the latter linking with Junction 1 of the M27. The New Forest National Park is approximately 8 miles to the east, sailing opportunities abound on the South Coast and there is a good choice of local golf clubs including Salisbury and Tollard Royal.

To the side of the cottage is an off road parking space with access to a detached single garage. There is pedestrian access on either side of the cottage. The garden extends to approximately 0.35 acre and is now largely overgrown.

1. Given the condition of the cottage and overgrown state of the garden we advise viewers to exercise caution when viewing the property and suggest it is advisable not to view with children.

2. The electrical supply is currently switched off and there is no light to the property. Although some light will be supplied by the Agent, it is advisable to bring a torch.

3. There is a covered well in the kitchen which will be clearly indicated by the Agent.
