Wallops Wood

Sheardley Lane, Droxford

SO32 3QY

Newly converted luxury cottages are in a tranquil location with stunning views across the Meon Valley and Isle of Wight. The cottages incorporate a tasteful blend of contemporary style and modern comforts.

Within easy reach of London, Winchester, Petersfield, Chichester, Southampton and Portsmouth, the five ground-floor self-contained cottages are completed to an outstanding standard, with quality fixture and fittings throughout including oak flooring, woodburners, free WiFi and underfloor heating fuelled by a woodchip boiler. They offer excellent accessibility (M1, M2, M3, H1 and V1) and both children and pets are welcome.

The cottages, which sleep 6-8 people, can be booked individually or as a group (up to 34 people excluding infant cots). Each cottage comprises an open plan sitting/dining room (with an extending oak table capable of seating 12) and fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Bedrooms are twin or super king all with TVs and en-suite shower rooms and one bathroom. French windows lead to individual enclosed gardens safe for both children and pets, with patios equipped with outdoor furniture and barbecues, a gate leading to a large shared lawn and from Valentines Day 2015 each cottage will have its own hot tub (some already do).

Located in the South Downs National Park, Wallops Wood is year-round base for walking cycling and sightseeing including National Trust properties, Marwell Zoo, Paulton’s Park, Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, historic Winchester, Goodwood, Chichester Festival, Grange Park Opera, Beaulieu and the New Forest.

We can recommend excellent places to eat out locally, help source delicious local/seasonal ingredients through fellow members of Hampshire Fare (www.hampshirefare.co.uk), provide home-made meals for the fridge or even book a personal chef – just ask and we’ll try to meet your requirements.
