Vendors comments

Having been here for almost 20 years, we have been so lucky to be part of the New Forest. We brought up our 4 children here. Nice neighbours, nice walks through farmland behind the house and convenient to schools, supermarkets and a leisure centre. Having both Marchwood and Hythe Villages and the ferry across to Southampton, while at the same time a rural environment, is such a bonus. It's a nice family home.


None of the appliances, fixtures and fittings and other items mentioned within these particulars have been tested and we cannot guarantee they work for the purpose as described


The house has a heat exchanger circulation system and a 'warm roof' using 'Actis Tri-Iso Super 9 multi-layer insulation
