The property

A most attractive, detached family house, situated within the residential area of Chandler's Ford in southern Hampshire.

The cottage is in an ideal location for couples and small family groups wishing to explore the surrounding countryside.

Head upstairs to the three bright bedrooms, one of which has a generous super king-size double bed, plus the shower room has a sturdy pull-down seat attached to the shower wall.

Enjoy the large enclosed garden, a perfect social space for planning the day's excursions, whilst locally there are several footpaths meandering across the lovely countryside.

From the house, there are good transport links taking you to numerous places of interest, appealing to all members of your group, from Peppa Pig World at Paultons Family Theme Park and Marwell Zoo for the youngsters, to Southampton's bustling shopping centre and all things nautical for the grown-ups.

About the location


Southampton; 7 Winchester; 7

Chandler's Ford is a southern Hampshire town situated close to Romsey, and on the edge of the old railway town of Eastleigh, midway between Southampton and Winchester. The town's name derives from the fords which had to be crossed on the old road to Winchester. Although now known as a business centre, Eastleigh itself lies on the banks of the River Itchen, a well known chalk stream beloved by fly fishermen.Good transport links, by, road, rail, or plane (from nearby Southampton Airport), mean that this area is very easily accessible, and offers visitors an excellent touring base from which to explore this diverse area of the south. Nearby Romsey is well worth a visit, where you can enjoy Broadlands house and gardens, former home of the Mountbatten family, or the beautiful Abbey. Whilst the New Forest National Park offers you a tranquil rural setting, home to deer, wild ponies and cattle. The younger members of your group will adore a trip to Peppa Pig World at Poultons Park, or how about a day out to Marwell Zoo, both a short drive. For a retail therapy experience, look no further than Southampton's West Quay, whilst nearby Winchester provides you with a fascinating and historic day out. It will be hard to choose from all the attractions on offer, whilst enjoying your stay in this interesting area.
