Owners' Comments

''We have enjoyed the peace and tranquility of our New Forest hideaway, off the beaten track, surrounded by birdsong. Watching the wildlife amongst the treetops, especially the squirrels, the nesting birds and the bats has been a joy.”

“We will miss the amazing views over to Breamore House and beyond, changing with every new season. In addition, enjoying the glorious sunsets and stargazing from our balcony whilst having direct access to the open forest for wonderful walks and cycling routes far from the holiday makers.”

“We are within walking distance of a great community shop which is also a real social hub to sit and enjoy a coffee and a natter and there is a lovely village pub on our doorstep. It really is an idyllic place to escape to and enjoy life immersed in nature.''


Set within well maintained gardens that encompass the property, Merry Orchard has been designed to appreciate its surroundings typified with its principal living areas on the first floor. The attractive vaulted first floor sitting room with wood burning stove and French doors to the balcony enjoy fabulous views over the New Forest and Breamore House in the distance. Beautifully quaint, the cottage is also practical with surprisingly generous storage spaces, contemporary family bathroom with stylish sanitary ware and parking. Situated in the common, within the quintessential New Forest village of Woodgreen and within walking distance of its revered public house, award winning local store and active village hall, this rare gem offers the perfect opportunity to experience integral village life in the heart of the New Forest with its famed walks and outdoor pursuits.


Upon entering Merry Orchard you arrive on the first floor hallway from where the principal rooms radiate. The vaulted sitting dining room is the show piece with a wood burning stove, attractive exposed beams and French doors to the balcony overlooking the gardens. The kitchen is well arranged with ample eye and base level units and complementary work surfaces incorporating a small breakfast bar. There is an eye level Indesit electric oven and grill, with space and plumbing for further kitchen appliances. The Master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and is of ideal dimensions served by a ‘Jack and Jill' ensuite shower with the second access from the hallway. The stairs descend to the ground floor where there are two bedrooms of excellent proportions, which in turn leads to a fully tiled contemporary family bathroom comprising twin wash hand basin, extra deep bath and chrome heated towel rail.


The property is approached via a lovely 25 metre pedestrian forest gate and bridle path. The gardens are tranquil and encompass the property with rolling undulating lawns enclosed by established hedging and raised beds for vegetable plots. A small patio area and paved path lead behind the property.


Woodgreen is a delightful village which lies between Breamore and Hale to the east of the River Avon. It is located due south of the city of Salisbury, accessed via the nearby A338, with its nearest town of Fordingbridge lying to the southwest. Set to the side of a forest track, the property occupies a pleasant position within this picturesque New Forest village which boasts a local pub, post office/village store, village hall, church and village green. Fordingbridge offers a range of shopping facilities and amenities as well as good schooling whilst the surrounding open forest features idyllic walks, cycle rides and other outdoor pursuits within acres of stunning countryside.


From Fordingbridge take the A338 heading North. Upon entering Breamore take the first turning right leading to Woodgreen. Turn right immediately after the Horse and Groom public house, follow the road taking the first right, before the Common and the parking area can be found on the right hand side denoted by our board. From the parking, the property can be found along a short path.
