Attractive family house in the South Downs National Park.

Well Cottage is a delightul house, located on a quiet country lane with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The current owner has sympathetically extended and refurbished the house and most recently re-fitted the kitchen all of which has contributed to the creation of a lovely family home.

The porched front door opens into the hall which then leads to the exceptionally well fitted and large open plan kitchen/breakfast room. This light room, with slate flooring, includes a breakfast island as well as a separate dining area providing flexible space for informal or formal dining. From here one can reach the stylish drawing room, with fireplace and wood burning stove, and the study. One of the notable features is the very generously proportioned main bedroom and bathroom suite to the rear of the house which has bi-fold doors opening out onto the garden.

On the first floor there are four further bedrooms, two of them with views over the fields to the front and a family bathroom.


Well Cottage is approached across a front garden and there is a wide gravel drive alongside the house which leads down to a brick built double carport.

To the rear, a decked area links to the large, open garden which is laid to lawn and surrounded by hedging.


Surrounded by the South Downs National Park, the house has all the benefits of being in the midst of the renowned Meon Valley and within half a mile of the village of Swanmore with its village shop and post office, butchers and a hairdressers. A wider range of amenities are available in the market town of Bishop's Waltham and a little further away Winchester, Southampton and Chichester.

The cathedral city of Winchester is about 12 miles away with a range of shopping and leisure facilities including a theatre, cinema, tennis and squash club, a number of restaurants and bars and a mainline railway station serving London Waterloo in about an hour. The area also offers a wealth of country pursuits on the doorstep with footpaths and bridleways in abundance.

The property is in the catchment for Swanmore CE Primary School and Swanmore College of Technology. There are also a good selection of private schools in the area including Wykeham House School, Twyford, Pilgrims, Prince’s Mead, King Edward VI, Winchester College, St Swithun’s, Churchers and Bedales.

There are also mainline stations at Southampton Parkway and Petersfield with the M27 junction 7 approximately 8 miles away giving good access to the M3 to London and in turn the London Orbital M25. Southampton International Airport is approximately 12 miles away and offers flights to various European destinations.


From the A31 turn left on to the Morestead Road and continue along this road for about 8.5 miles. At the T junction turn left then immediately right onto Shepherd’s Farm Lane. At the next crossroads turn right onto Park Lane, continue down the road, around a sharp left hand and then right hand bend and after a short distance bear left onto Hampton Hill. Turn left onto Well Lane, the property will be found on the left hand side of the junction with Vicarage Lane.
