This desirable home is located along a country lane in the small hamlet of Ibsley, which is a short distance from the cattle grid, open forest and local pub. The village of Gorley is nearby with a superb farm shop. There is a good range of local amenities in the nearby towns of Ringwood (3 miles) and Fordingbridge (4 miles). North of here is the well-known Cathedral city of Salisbury (14 miles) which has a considerable range of shopping and leisure facilities. There are excellent communication routes with mainline rail services to London Waterloo from Salisbury (85 minutes) or Southampton Parkway (70 minutes). The A31 at Ringwood allows good access to the Motorway and is only 10 miles from Junction 1 of the M27 which links to the M3 and on to London. The regional airports at Bournemouth and Southampton are both within driving distance (Bournemouth 11 miles, Southampton 25 miles). The 900 year old New Forest provides superb recreational activities, walking, sailing, riding and cycling. The coast is nearby with two marinas (Lymington and Poole).
