A truly wonderful grade II listed thatched cottage amassing over 1800 sq ft of main residence accommodation as well as an array of delightful outbuildings. The property sits in a plot of approximately 0.35 acres. Being presented in immaculate condition throughout, the cottage benefits from exposed beams and vaulted ceilings to the first floor and all rooms have impressive views throughout. The property was originally arranged as two cottages and a tavern built back in the 17th century with several changes and alterations made over the following centuries. The property was almost completely rebuilt in 2007 due to an unfortunate fire but a few of the most impressive character features and beams were retained.

The plot is in a semi - rural lane within the hamlet of Upper Burgate.The lane is part of the National Cycle Bye Way Network and offers immedi[1]ate access to miles of open countryside away from major roads. The site is half a mile down minor roads into Fordingbridge and one mile from the A338 which gives direct access to the north, to Salisbury (8miles) with a mainline railway link to Waterloo and the West Country as well as southwards to Ringwood, to the A31, providing links to Bournemouth and the M27 to Southampton and beyond. London is approximately a two hrs drive.

The town has a high street of interesting, independ[1]ent shops, including an art gallery, bookshop, boutiques and essential butchers and bakers.
