For some of our Retirement Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, Hampshire County Council, who can be contacted on 01730 829598.
This is a small development of 12 one bed houses in the small village of Warnford, near Petersfield. Hanover Cottages are surrounded by beautiful countryside with the Moorhen Trout Fishery just down the road. This is an ideal development for those looking to enjoy the natural surrounding and tranquillity of the English countryside.
You won’t have to worry about buildings and grounds maintenance or repairs as an on-site manager looks after these points, as well as helping you to access further help and support if you need it. The village has a pub and nearby West Meon has a post office and local shop.
