The property

Nestled in the picture-postcard village of Selborne is 1 Foresters Rest, a charming semi-detached cottage for a couples getaway to the South Downs National Park.

Find this pretty property right in the middle of the village, with a country pub and local shop on the doorstep, taking three steps up into your new home away from home.

You're greeted by a stunning sitting room, boasting a quirky and stylish interior design, complemented by two white leather sofas, deep blue recess walls, a wall-mounted TV and a snug fireplace.

Resting behind is a spacious kitchen/diner, the perfect spot to rustle up romantic meals using the fantastic amenities including an electric oven, hob, a fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, and even an espresso machine for those groggy mornings.

Gather round the wooden dining table accompanied by a well-deserved bottle of wine, or choose to dine alfresco in your own private garden, hosting a lovely stone patio, a brick-built barbecue and steps up to a luscious lawn with a summer house.

When sleep calls, head to the first floor where you'll find an attractive double bedroom, housing ample storage and served by a family bathroom where guests can unwind in a hot bubble bath, or enjoy a refreshing rinse in the overhead shower.

Explore the surrounding village and stock up on essentials in the village shop before heading to the local pub for a crisp pint of ale and some hearty pub grub - make sure to talk to the locals and hear stories about the renowned world-famous naturalist, Reverend.

Gilbert White, a pioneer of birdwatching throughout the village.

Head out on a day of adventure around the South Downs National Park, delighting in tranquil walking trails with awe-inspiring landscapes, challenging cycling trails, nature watching and fabulous attractions such as Kingley Vale, and stargazing at Butser Hill.

Alternatively, travel over to the historic market town of Alton where you'll find the Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line, the Curtis Museum and Allen Gallery, or visit the ancient cathedral city of Winchester for a memorable day out.

1 Foresters Rest is the ideal choice for a romantic getaway to this serene corner of Hampshire.
