The property is situated in a semi-rural location close to the New Forest National Park, offering thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland, ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Ringwood is approximately one mile distant, offering a comprehensive range of shops and facilities. This old market town is positioned on the edge of the New Forest, with easy access to the beautiful sandy beaches along the south coast.
It is an increasingly popular destination for home hunters; the old cattle market has been transformed into a stylish shopping quarter with names such as Hobbs, Joules, Waitrose and Waterstones, and a programme of events that includes live music and farmers’ markets. The adjacent high street has retained its character, with a traditional weekly market, a fine selection of independents and a variety of stylish eateries.
Families are attracted by the sense of community and highly regarded local and private nursery’s and schools within easy reach, such as Ellingham House, Moyles Court and Forres Sandle Manor.
For commuters, the easily accessible A338 provides a link to the larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch, whilst the A31/M27 connects to Southampton, Winchester and London beyond via the M3 & M25
Living in Ringwood
Ringwood offers the best of all worlds. This old market town is positioned on the edge of the New Forest, yet is just ten minutes drive to the coast and also has easy access to the A31, with London, Southampton and Winchester in one direction and Bournemouth in the other.
It is an increasingly popular destination for home hunters. Best known as the home of Ringwood Brewery (inspiration for the current boom in microbreweries), it is undergoing a re-identification. The old cattle market has been transformed into a stylish shopping quarter with names such as Aga, Hobbs, Joules, Waitrose and Waterstones, and a programme of events that includes live music and farmers’ markets. The adjacent high street has retained its character, with a traditional weekly market and a selection of independents, a new artisan bakery, and a variety of decent eateries such as Framptons and Noisy Lobster.
Families are attracted by the sense of community and highly regarded secondary school (its sixth form provision rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted). There is a wide range of property from thatched cottages, through Victorian and Edwardian villas to tree-lined closes of homes built between the wars and every decade from mid-century onwards.
To the north are the quieter, untouched reaches of the Forest and larger country houses. To the west Ringwood is bounded by the River Avon and Avon Castle, a private estate of big, individual, contemporary properties in large plots, many with views across the water meadows. Avon Castle appeals to those looking for privacy and seclusion, and also attracts people moving from London in search of country life combined with contemporary living.
