With the New Forest sitting on one side and a short drive to the coast on the other, the old market town of Ringwood is increasingly popular with home hunters looking to settle down.
Ringwood’s high street is full of traditional character with independent local shops offering artisan baked goods and local produce alongside a weekly market that attracts visitors to the town for its wide selection of stalls. These are complemented at weekends with farmers and speciality markets that are held in The Furlong and Gateway Square. This traditional feel on the high street is perfectly mixed with the larger brands that have decided to set up in Ringwood, offering a stylish shopping experience out of the big towns and cities nearby.
You are also never too far from some delicious eateries with local pubs, cafes and restaurants there is surely something that will satisfy your tastes. Home to the famous Ringwood Brewery you are not too far away from good ales and beer too all made on the premises and ready for you to enjoy.
Properties in Ringwood give you plenty of choice from Victorian and Edwardian villas full of character, thatched country cottages and family homes nestled in tree-lined streets and closes there is something to suit all buyers alike. To the north lies The New Forest with a wider range of countryside houses.
Families benefit from a selection of local schools and leisure activities which helps to make it a popular place to settle down. For those active family members there is lots on offer close by from The New Forest Water Park a short drive up the A338, Snowtrax outdoor alpine activity centre as you head to Bournemouth plus a large number of walking and cycling routes either through the forest or along the coast.

Ringwood sits at the crossroads of the A31 and A338 offering fast journeys to Southampton and Winchester in one direction and Salisbury, Poole and Bournemouth in the others. It’s also a good link for further beyond and travelling to London too which is why Ringwood attracts those looking for the peace and quiet of country life whilst still enjoying a commute.
