Business people like its situation between two mainline stations at New Milton and Sway. Retirees are drawn to the range of useful facilities, among them good country pubs (such as The Crown at Everton), local shops (including a co-op, garage, hair salon, pet store and pharmacy), and strong community spirit. Sports pavilions and recreation grounds at Hordle and Everton provide local hubs with activities ranging from cricket to football, gardening to yoga, and walking to wine appreciation groups.
