Hunter’s Moon is an outstanding period property dating back to the 17th century, situated in the Test Valley in Hampshire. The house has been completely restored, and re-thatched in 2008, and also extended in 1984.

For a thatched house the rooms are very light and have good ceiling heights; there are also many exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace in the drawing room; the study is beautifully fitted with library bookcases and an oak spiral staircase rises up to the first floor, which has four bedrooms, including the vaulted master bedroom suite.
