Tenure: Freehold

A most attractive detached Grade II listed thatched cottage located in the popular village of Rockbourne offering surprisingly spacious and stylish accommodation.

Trentham Cottage is a most attractive period cottage, beautifully presented having undergone significant improvement in recent years including re-thatching in 2014, with very comfortable stylish rooms and a delightful cottage garden which adjoins a bubbling stream. The cottage is set in the heart of the village, within a short walk of the popular Rose & Thistle pub, the village hall, sports field, school and church. Also close by are the rolling chalk downs with many footpaths and bridleways as well as some spectacular views.

The sought after Downland village of Rockbourne sits amidst lovely rolling countryside, much of which is a designated Conservation Area. Rockbourne is home to a thriving community that benefits from a reputable primary school - which is within close walking distance - a village hall, a church and popular public house. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (4 miles) provides a comprehensive range of day to day services, including schooling, a medical/health centre, a good range of local shops, banks and a library. The excellent communications network allows ready access to the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton; all have mainline rail links to London Waterloo and there are airports at the latter two. A myriad of footpaths and bridleways exist in the surrounding area and there is magnificent outriding to be had on Whitsbury Downs; the contrasting moor, heath and woodland of the New Forest is approximately four miles to the East.
