Living in New Forest

It feels a privilege to live in the New Forest. This is a stunning, semi-wild landscape of more than 220 square miles of heathland and woodland where deer, ponies, donkeys and cattle wander freely.

It is scattered with picture postcard perfect villages such as Beaulieu, thriving communities such as Brockenhurst and Woodgreen, vibrant market towns like Ringwood and Lymington, and hidden hamlets. The variety of properties ranges from old hunting lodges and thatched cottages to equestrian estates and contemporary coastal homes with sea views.

In terms of lifestyle, the New Forest provides a natural playground for walkers, runners, cyclists, riders and watersports enthusiasts. It has miles of footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways, and its coastline includes Lymington, the sailing ‘capital’ of the UK with marinas and sailing clubs. There are also opportunities to go kayaking, wreck diving and sea fishing – or simply crabbing from the quayside with the children.

For families, educational facilities in the Forest range from small day nurseries and ‘proper’ village schools to sixth form provision rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted .There is also a selection of acclaimed independent schools – and all make the most of their New Forest grounds and environment to give children a country childhood.
