The property is located a short walk from the River Avon in the delightful conservation hamlet of Bickton, which lies a short distance from the boundary of the New Forest National Park and within the heart of the Avon Valley. The former market town of Fordingbridge lies approximately 1 mile to the North and offers a good range of everyday services, including independent shops, a building society, a library, an excellent health centre as well as highly regarded state primary and secondary schools, supplemented by Forres Sandle Manor and Moyles Court in the private sector.

For those seeking a balance between a ‘work-from-home’ and office-based environment, communications in the area are excellent. The local road network, including the A338 and A36, draws the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton within striking distance. There are mainline rail services from Salisbury and Southampton Parkway (90 minutes and 71 minutes respectively) to London Waterloo and international airports at Southampton and Bournemouth.

Those seeking outdoor pursuits will undoubtedly be satisfied by the wonderful location and the glorious walking, riding and cycling countryside available in the New Forest National Park. There is a choice of local golf and angling clubs in the vicinity and sailing opportunities abound on the South Coast and at Spinnaker Sailing Club at Blashford Lakes, near Ringwood.

The cottage is approached via a gated entrance that opens to a driveway running across the rear of the property and turning to continue to an open parking area where the GARAGE and CARPORT are situated.

The cottage sits to the front corner of a generous, L – shaped garden that is primarily laid to lawn with a path leading to the entrance porch. The lawn continues to the east where there is a number of garden sheds and an enclosed dog run.
