Private Drive/Access
Large Garage/Workshop
Direct Forest Access

Planning Permission for a replacement dwelling was granted by the New Forest National Park Authority under application number 15/00755 on the 11th December 2015 with the proviso that the Development commence within three years of that date.

The present sub standard property known as Barrow Cottage is accessed from a gravel Forestry Commission track known as Toms Lane and occupies an amazing site in the New Forest National Park which comprises approximately 571 square kilometres of open Moor, Heath and Woodland and is arguably the finest outriding, walking and cycling to be found in the South of England.

Barrow Cottage is located on the edge of the New Forest village of Linwood within walking distance of two popular country pubs and about 5 miles northeast of the market town of Ringwood where there are a variety of independent and national retailers, a choice of supermarkets, professional services and recreation centres in addition to a variety of Pubs, Cafes and Restaurants. There is an excellent choice of State and Private schooling in the area from infants to sixth form.

Commuters can access the A31 dual carriageway easily which links with the M27 and M3 for Southampton, Winchester and London and many use the mainline railway station at Southampton Parkway off junction 5 on the M27 where there is ample parking and the fast service to Waterloo is about an hour. International Airports are at Southampton (Eastleigh) and Bournemouth (Hurn) for most European destinations.

The site is largely lawned with areas of natural woodland bordered to the south by a small stream. It is considered that areas of grazing in the form of paddocks could be created and there is already a fenced vegetable garden and a very useful detached building approx 48 feet by 15 feet for garaging or workshop use.

From Ringwood head north on the A338 towards Salisbury for about a mile and turn right into Ivy Lane. Continue to the end and turn left, pass the Alice Lisle public house on your left and take the next right (just before the Ford) and continue for about two miles into Linwood. Turn left in front of the Redshoot Inn into Toms Lane and follow round the sharp right bend continuing onto the gravel. Ignore the fork right and carry on over the open Forest for about another half a mile and take the next fork right. The drive to Barrow Cottage is the first on the right.
