Welcome to Ringwood

If you are a fan of beautiful woodland and glorious rolling countryside, then the New Forest is the place for you. Or more precisely, Ringwood.

Ringwood is a small market town that is found on the River Avon. A stunning place filled with charm and character, Ringwood is thought of as the western gateway to the entire New Forest National Park. 

Usually, a go-to choice for those who are looking to explore the rest of the area, what makes Ringwood the ideal place to live and raise your family?

It is quaint yet modern

We love the fact that Ringwood is not afraid to be the ideal mixture of modern and traditional in style. Whilst it has the classic addition of a street market, it also has several restaurants and pubs too. 

If you love the idea of taking in the more traditional aspects of the market town, we highly recommend walking down West Street, where you can see the River from a beautiful stone bridge. 

It is on the Avon Valley Path

Aside from being able to walk around the town itself, Ringwood is also found on the Avon Valley Path. This path is a well-known walking route for hiking enthusiasts and is 34 miles long. Whilst you won't be able to walk the entire thing in one go, you can walk from Salisbury all the way to Christchurch. 

You are perfectly located 

Whilst there is plenty to keep you entertained in Ringwood, another great thing about living here is that it opens up a wider area for you to explore. You can travel around Hampshire and Dorset, taking in a variety of forests that surround the area. This is ideal if you are a fan of long walks or you love outdoor activities such as mountain biking. 

If you do ever venture out of the area, then you will also be pleased to know that Ringwood is never very far from the beach, allowing you to enjoy everything that being close to the sea has to offer. 

It is great for families

If you are moving with your family, or you plan to have a family in the future, then one great thing about living in Ringwood is that it is ideal if you have children. There is a wealth of career opportunities in the area, and there are also some amazing schools that you can choose too. The properties in the area are varied, too, allowing you to find something that fits not only your needs but also your budgets too.

So, what are you waiting for? If you are looking to live somewhere that is fun, family-friendly and is the perfect place to live your life, then Ringwood in Hampshire is a great choice. It really is the ideal place to call your home.
