Beautiful, charming and enchanting, this is a ‘must see’ cottage in the heart of the New Forest.
Valletta Cottage is set within a stone’s throw of The Royal Oak public house which dates back to the 1600’s, and a level green where the New Forest animals and wildlife roam. A superb, picturesque location that is cherished by locals and visitors alike. The property itself with three to four bedrooms benefits from the bright South and Westerly aspects. It is centrally positioned with gardens surrounding. Flexible ground floor accommodation consists of a large formal lounge room, modern kitchen/breakfast room, 21ft dining room and one of the bedrooms with en-suite bathroom separated by an inner hall with access outside. Upstairs are three further bedrooms, one of which adjoins the stunning master bedroom and the family bathroom. An amazing opportunity to secure a delightful New Forest cottage in a highly sought after Hamlet.
The property is situated in the hamlet of Fritham which itself is in a quiet and delightful part of the New Forest. Romsey is within easy reach and the major centres of Southampton 11 miles, Salisbury 14 miles and Winchester 19 miles are easily accessible. The main line rail service from Southampton Parkway can be accessed within about 15 minutes.
Accessed via a five bar gate and cattle grid, a stone laid driveway offers parking for multiple vehicles. A single garage adjoins the side of the house. A mixture of fencing encloses the property, high to mid height evergreen hedges giving privacy on the wide front boundary. Some hard standing areas are available, a timber framed greenhouse and far reaching countryside views are afforded to the rear. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of trees, shrubs, wild flowers and bushes are sprinkled throughout.
