The Cottage At The Old Rectory
1 bedroom, sleeps 2
Located in rural Hampshire, The Cottage at The Old Rectory is the perfect place for a couples getaway.
This welcoming property stands peacefully within the extensive grounds of the owners’ home, and includes shared use of the tennis court. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the borders of Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire, close to the Martin Down Nature Reserve, this detached haystore conversion is located only 10 miles from Salisbury, with its ancient architecture and beautiful cathedral. There is a community-run, part-time village shop in Martin, half a mile away. For keen walkers, the property is ideal as it is situated in an area for direct countryside walks in the region of Cranborne Chase.
It is also within easy reach of the New Forest National Park, which is also ideal for spotting the local wildlife. Inside the property there is an open plan living/dining room with a cosy wood burner, a galley style kitchen, and first floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This is a great touring base from which to visit the extensive attractions in the area. Nearby, the charming town of Fordingbridge has a host of shops, cafés and eateries, and the gentle flowing River Avon is also nearby. Rockbourne is good for fly fishing and there is coarse fishing at Fordingbridge, as well as a water park, with various watersports including windsurfing and boating.
The property is in a convenient location with road links to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, as well as Stonehenge and The Tank Museum at Bovington. It also has easy coastal connections to Christchurch Harbour, Poole, Sandbanks and Bournemouth. Other attractions within easy reach include Beaulieu Motor Museum, Monkey World, Avon Heath Country Park, New Forest Otter and Owl Park. Maritime Southampton and various other tourist attractions are within easy driving distance. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
