This peaceful and pretty village benefits from a central village shop/post office, several good nearby public houses, two hotels with restaurants and the very popular Cranborne Garden Centre with café and gift shop.
Cranborne CE First School and Cranborne Middle School are handily located in the village and both are highly praised by Ofsted.
Cranborne itself offers a charming rural community lifestyle and benefits from the nearby towns of Verwood and Fordingbridge which offer shopping and various amenities.
For transport options there is a mainline station 17 miles away at Salisbury, Bournemouth Airport less than 20 miles away and Southampton Airport just over 30 miles.
The edge of The New Forest is less than 10 miles and Bournemouth beach just under 20 miles.
From Ringwood, join the B3081 heading towards Verwood. After about half a mile, turn right into Harbridge Drive, signposted to Alderholt. Continue to Alderholt, and at the T junction, turn left onto the B3078. Proceed along this road for approximately 6 miles on Hare Lane towards Cranborne/Castle Street. The property can be found on your right hand side.
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.
