idyllic victorian cottage in Hartley WintneyNestled within woodland down a quiet Hartley Wintney lane, you will find this beautiful four bedroom Victorian cottage with the feel of a secluded rural home yet in walking distance of shops, restaurants and the local train station.

When asked what she liked most about living at the cottage, the current owner agreed that it was like living in rural countryside, yet with the convenience of shops restaurants and a train station, all within walking distance.  This statement is very true as although the village centre of Hartley Wintney is just a short walk away, this wonderful wisteria clad home is nestled down a country lane with its own private woodland to the front of the property giving a real feel of the rural idyll.
