About this property
For those seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, look no further than this superb, detached, single-storey timber clad cottage, nestled in the heart of a 2000-acre woodland nature reserve on the borders of Hampshire and Wiltshire. The cottage is one of two holiday properties on site and situated near the village of Farley within the owner's 24-acre farm, which is home to cattle, horses, sheep and llamas. Finished to an extremely high standard, the comfortable and attractive interior is filled with vintage finds and hand-painted furniture, whilst the impressive kitchen/diner has an American-style fridge/freezer and offers uninterrupted views of the beautiful countryside surrounding the cottage and doors opening into a garden room. Snuggle up in front of the glowing woodburning stove on chilly days or when the sun shines, open the French doors and enjoy a drink or two on the decked patio. You can also enjoy a game of boules on the nearby court! You're sure to spend a comfortable night in any of the three stylish bedrooms available, the master of which has a gorgeous walk-in shower room and French doors that lead to its own decked patio, sheer heaven! The beautiful woodland surrounding the cottage is abundant in wildlife, including rare butterflies, and lovely walks and cycle paths lead straight from the front door. Although the cottage feels truly away from it all, it is within a 20-minute journey of the historic cathedral city of Salisbury. The ancient heritage site of Stonehenge, the New Forest National Park and the pretty Test Valley town of Stockbridge are also just a short drive away. However you choose to spend your days, Farley Lodge offers you a relaxed haven to which you can return and reflect on the day’s events as you savour a glass of your favourite tipple and watch the woodland trees glow in the evening sunset.
