Alderholt is a small village situated in a rural retreat near to Fordingbridge and the New Forest. The easily accessible A338 provides a direct link to the larger market town of Ringwood (approximately 6 miles south) with a comprehensive range of shops and leisure facilities and two supermarkets, and to the cathedral city of Salisbury (approximately 8 miles north) with mainline railway station direct to Waterloo, London. A good minor road from Alderholt provides an alternative route for direct, easy access onto ‘A’ roads leading to Bournemouth and Poole. The scenic coastal towns of Christchurch and Bournemouth are also easily accessible, being approximately 16 miles south via the A338, offering beautiful beaches and coastal walks.

Living in Fordingbridge

Fordingbridge, with its distinctive seven arch bridge spanning the River Avon, rewards discovery. This former market town enjoys an idyllic location between the heath and woodland of the New Forest and rolling chalk downlands of Cranborne Chase. The Avon Valley long-distance footpath from Salisbury to Christchurch runs through the town, meandering beside the Avon. Round and about are some of the loveliest villages, including Rockbourne with the remains of a Roman villa and good, popular pub, the Rose & Thistle, and delightful Breamore with its picturesque Marsh (surviving manorial green) and Elizabethan manor house.

Fordingbridge itself has a high street of interesting independents including an art gallery, architectural salvage yard (a great resource with treasures such as Victorian fireplaces), bookshop and boutiques, and essentials such as butchers and bakers. There’s also a great selection of pubs and restaurants in the area, such as The George in Fordingbridge, The Three Lions at Stuckton and The Foresters at Frogham.

Property in Fordingbridge and surrounding area represents good value for the New Forest and includes character cottages and modern family homes. Families are also attracted by the well-regarded independent schools of Forres Sandle Manor and Moyles Court.

Fordingbridge is positioned just off the main Salisbury to Christchurch Road, so there’s reasonable access to the road networks - including A31 at Ringwood.
