A charming Grade II* Listed Manor House in a much sought after village with extensive paddocks and superb equestrian facilities


The Manor House is set in a prominent position in the middle of the village, with pretty views down the picturesque village high street and over the surrounding countryside. Martin is a traditional and popular rural village nestled within the rolling countryside of the Cranborne Chase. It is Hampshire's most westerly village which has a community village shop. There is an excellent network of footpaths and bridleways which provide fantastic riding and walking opportunities across to Rockbourne and Martin Down, a designated National Nature Reserve. The neighbouring village of Damerham has a Primary School, Garage and Public House. The Cathedral City of Salisbury lies approximately 10 miles to the north east offering a variety of shops and restaurants as well as recreational and sporting facilities including theatre, cinema, golf and racing at Salisbury Race Course. Trains from Salisbury's mainline railway station to London, Waterloo, take 90 minutes. Communications by road in the area are excellent with A354 a short distance to the west and the A338 beyond Fordingbridge leading to the M27 and The New Forest. Bournemouth & Southampton airports are within easy reach. The area is particularly sought after because of its excellent range of state and private schools including Forres Sandle Manor, Sandroyd and Chafyn Grove prep schools, Bryanston, Canford and Godolphin School plus the South Wilts and Bishop's Wordsworth Grammar Schools.
