Abbots Wood

This stunning property is situated in an exclusive, gated development, within 100 acres of conservation woodland, in the delightful southern Hampshire village of Netley Abbey, four miles from Southampton. This impressive, detached residence is set in three acres of grounds, complete with a lake and an indoor heated swimming pool. This amazing house offers visitors spacious and luxurious accommodation, ideal for a large family gathering or a group of friends seeking a holiday property with the 'wow' factor! With its chic, boutique-style furnishings and bright and airy, spacious rooms throughout, it is sure to impress. All five bedrooms have access to en-suite facilities, one of which features a Jacuzzi bath. Each of the four upstairs bedrooms has its own balcony which overlooks the wooded garden and lake, while the two sitting rooms, the dining room and the ground floor kitchen all have French doors which open out onto the patio. This lovely outdoor space is the perfect place to socialise and dine alfresco in the summer sunshine. The icing on the cake however, is the sensational indoor heated swimming pool, set within its own impressive pool room, and a shower in the adjoining utility. Once you’ve swam and dried off, take the stairs up to the mezzanine area which overlooks the pool. There is a bar at one end where you can help yourself to a drink, a kitchen with fully-fitted appliances at the other and French doors opening out onto a balcony! Should you tire of the pool, take a stroll down to the lake where you can fish for carp, or simply watch the antics of the ducks and the moorhens. Locally, you can enjoy walks through the Royal Victoria Country Park, or explore the ruins of Netley Abbey, a 13th century Cistercian monastery. What better way to explore this wonderful area than with a stay in this incredible property, offering visitors the most amazing Hampshire holiday experience!
