- Full Property Description
- Chestnut Cottage is situated within a few hundred yards of the historic village of Beaulieu. The village forms the heart of the surrounding Estate that in part encompasses the historic maritime hamlet of Bucklers Hard (approximately 2.5 miles south). The village forms the historic seat of the Montagu family who occupy Palace House. The renowned facilities afforded by the Georgian market of Lymington, famed for its river, marinas and yacht clubs, lies some 5 miles south across the open forest of Beaulieu Heath. The neighbouring forest village of Brockenhurst (approximately 4 miles west) affords a diverse range of shops and educational establishments, together with a useful mainline rail connection to London (Waterloo approximately 90 minutes).

The gardens associated with the cottage, though somewhat overgrown, provide colour and interest with clearly defined boundaries.

The remainder of the garden is lawned, although somewhat overgrown, with a pedestrian gate. To the rear is a small area of paddock in the ownership of the Beaulieu Estate. We understand the paddock was at one stage rented by the owners and a similar arrangement maybe considered again.
