Fordingbridge is a small riverside Hampshire town, described by some as the northern gateway to The New Forest. Built on the banks of the River Avon, it has a distinctive medieval bridge with seven arches. There’s plenty to do and explore right on the doorstep.
Alderholt is located in the peaceful and beautiful area of East Dorset, just three miles west of Fordingbridge. The village has plenty of walking and cycling routes in nearby Ringwood Forest.
In particular, the open, picturesque heathlands of the New Forest are just a short distance away. At the nearby Riverside Park, children enjoy the attractive playpark and playing field – or you can walk along the riverbank and enjoy the secluded memorial gardens.
In the centre of the town, a wander down the high street offers plenty of local shops, cafés, bakeries and butchers. You’ll also find banks, pharmacies and some fantastic pubs and restaurants.
Just three miles west of Fordingbridge, the village of Alderholt takes you across the border to a peaceful and beautiful area of East Dorset. Local amenities include a small convenience supermarket and post office, GP surgery, vet, pub, and junior school, making it a popular place for house hunters. The village also has a large recreational ground with children’s play area and outdoor gym, plus plenty of walking and cycling routes in nearby Ringwood Forest.
The properties in Fordingbridge, Alderholt and their surrounding areas are good value for the New Forest, and range from beautiful thatched cottages with plenty of character to modern family homes. For families, there are a number of local schools and nurseries, all well regarded and welcoming.
Positioned just off the main road between Salisbury and Christchurch, and nestled between the stunning New Forest and chalk downlands of Cranborne Chase, the Fordingbridge and Alderholt areas offer the best of both worlds, with good road networks and peaceful countryside to settle down in.
Just a short drive north gets you to Salisbury’s train station – and in the other direction, Bournemouth’s International Airport keeps you well connected while enjoying the country life.
