Having been in the same ownership for over 70 years a rare opportunity to acquire pasture and woodland in one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and sought after corners of Hampshire.

DESCRIPTION Having been in the same ownership for over 70 years, Vann Farm provides a rare opportunity to acquire pasture and woodland in one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and sought after corners of Hampshire.

PROPERTY - LOT 3 Lot 3 - Pasture and Woodland extending to 4.82 acres (1.95 hectares)

A block of land on the western side of the land comprising 3.66 acres (1.48 hectares) of permanent pasture and 1.16 acres (0.47 hectares) of woodland. The field is gently undulating with an area of woodland to the south of the field and a tree lined boundary continuing around the perimeter.

LOCATION Although the postal address is Selborne, Vann Farm is closer to the village of Hawkley and is positioned down a lovely winding single track country lane. Both villages form part of an ancient landscape, virtually unaltered over the years and which are now in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The wooded hillsides are known as the 'Hangers' and consist largely of beech woodland with some yew, ash and wild cherry on chalk which provide a habitat for many rare species. Crisscrossed by numerous footpaths and bridleways, this area provides wonderful walking, horse riding and cycling opportunities.

The larger village of Selborne is home to Gilbert White's House and Garden, The Oates Collection, the Selborne Arms pub, village church and primary school. Although smaller, Hawkley has the well regarded Hawkley Inn, church, village hall (with Montessori school), cricket ground with play area and tennis court.

Petersfield with its comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose, leisure centre, lido and mainline station is an easy drive. There is a more local station at Liss and the town of Alton is also within easy reach. The A3, with trunk road connections, is a 10 minute drive away meaning the larger centres of Guildford, Portsmouth (with ferry services) and Winchester, via A31/A272, are within reasonable driving distance, as are the creeks and inlets of the South Coast. There are many well-regarded state and private schools in the region including Bohunt, The Petersfield School, Churcher's College, Ditcham Park and Bedales.
