Book A Viewing



A truly charming and unique Grade II listed home situated upon a generous plot on the fringes of the popular village of Wellow and the New Forest. The drive, lined with tall poplars, threads through the middle of the land past three ancient outbuildings to the period thatched house. The oldest wing of the house, built around 1690, features thick cob walls and a myriad of beams. This part of the house has a beamed snug sitting room with inglenook fire place and an office which looks out onto a secluded patio used for dining. A winding wooden staircase above the snug leads to a bedroom, and a bathroom accessed through a hatch door - a child’s delight. The entrance hall has multiple doors to a beautiful paved patio, a very spacious sitting room, a cloakroom and a big kitchen. The sitting room, with a Jetmaster open fire, has floor to ceiling oak framed windows looking out onto the patio and garden, which stretches into the fields beyond. The garden is full of hidden delights, secret pathways and secret spots to sit and places to wander - a paradise for children. From the sitting room, double doors open out into the magnificent pool room with ample seating for lounging and dining. This is a quiet calm oasis, full of light with wooden beams, lots of yuccas and a meandering vine. A small kitchen sits at the end of the pool. The remaining ground floor area includes the kitchen with a central island, pear wood units and an unusual wall finish of western red cedar logs. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with a door to outside. The main staircase from the entrance hall leads to the rest of the first-floor accommodation of three further double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The generous principle bedroom has a spectacular wood panelled en-suite bathroom. The two remaining bedrooms open onto a landing and bathroom beyond. A distinguishing feature of this wonderful home are the ancient outbuildings which were run as a well reviewed upmarket, funky B &B for over twenty five years. Each building has its own unique character with bathroom and private garden. This mini country estate tucked away from the world has much to offer - freedom to run wild for children, the opportunity to run an extremely profitable business and a calm living environment.
