This delightful detached holiday property, formerly the pigsty as the name suggests, stands within the grounds of the owner’s thatched country home, surrounded by fields, some wild flower meadows and with direct access onto public footpaths. Offering plenty of light due to the vaulted open-plan living space and folding patio doors, this attractive conversion offers an ideal base for sightseeing or walking. There is a cycle track 55 yards away, which goes from Alton to Fareham, and linking to the South Downs National Park. Also nearby is Bere Forest, a 100-acre woodland area with walks and play areas. The River Meon is close by and is great for trout fishing. Within the grounds are swings for children, plus a sports/soft ball ground and a chicken run. The property is an excellent touring base, with Winchester Cathedral, The New Forest, Chichester, West Wittering, Jane Austen’s house, Gilbert White’s Museum, Hambledon Vineries, Watercress steam railway, Marwell Zoo, Peppa Pig World and maritime history at Portsmouth and Southampton, all within a 30-minute drive. Beach 10 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub 0.5 miles, restaurant 1 mile.
