Bedrooms: The house sleeps 10 comfortably. There are six large bedrooms in all. Five are upstairs (super king-size double/twin beds; king-size double/twin beds; two single beds; single bed; single bed).
The sixth bedroom is the downstairs annexe, with a king-size convertible bed-settee.
3 bathrooms: Upstairs - bath with shower attachment.
Downstairs - bath with power shower over. The Annexe en-suite also has a power shower and WC.
The Annexe with its king-size sofa-bed is fairly self-sufficient, being equipped with its own fridge, and could be considered a refuge for elderly family members preferring a little peace, privacy and a measure of independence.
The Utility Room has a washing machine, tumble dryer, and large freezer.
The Kitchen has a brand new dining table, large gas oven with hob, large fridge, dishwasher and microwave oven. The wood-burning stove is also available in the winter months.
Sitting Room - comfortable lounge furniture, TV and DVD player. There is a wood burner with supply of logs, and the house has full central heating.
The Games Room has a pool table and home cinema system with all-round sound.
Large 0.3-acre garden. Ideal for games. Fish pond, wendy house, and double gates opening to steps leading down to the Allen River, with trout often visible (young children must be supervised). There is a big patio table, gas BBQ, and chiminea.
Parking: To the front of the house are two storage bins for logs, and a large tarmac parking area, which sets the house well back from the village road. To the side of the house there is additional parking for cars and even space for a boat.
Location: The house is located in the small village of Damerham, 3.5 miles to the west of Fordingbridge, with The Compasses Inn public house an easy level walk away. It's a family pub with good food and a beer garden. It also has B&B rooms - useful for you if your party is more than 10 people.
General : Bed linen is provided, except when the owners are absent and changeovers are being handled by delegated staff - this usually occurs during July and August. Please bring your own towels at all times. A cot and highchair are available on request. Wifi internet access throughout the house. No smoking indoors. No pets allowed.
This was the village Post Office and "Penny Black" was a famous stamp.
