The historic town of Fordingbridge is situated on the banks of the Hampshire Avon, a famous fishing river known for its salmon and trout. During the late 19th early 20th century the local rowing regatta was a nationally recognised event on the river.
We are privileged to have our business in an area of outstanding natural beauty with a diversity of countryside from river valley to chalk down land, and from forest and heath land to the undulating Dorset landscape.
Being in central southern England, the area is perhaps one of the most convenient for communications.

There are airports at Bournemouth and Southampton (Eastleigh), London can be reached via the M27 and M3 and there are rail links from Salisbury, Southampton and Bournemouth.
There is a wide choice of schooling with private schools, grammar schools (Salisbury), and excellent local schools in Fordingbridge & neighbouring villages, including the accredited Burgate Secondary School & Sixth Form Centre.
The many leisure opportunities include a number of golf courses, fly & course fishing on rivers & lakes, together with walking, cycling & horse riding within the New Forest Park. The south coast resorts of Poole, Lymington, Christchurch offer excellent sailing facilities.
The area is therefore a popular destination for those wishing to retire, relocate for work or family reasons or simply seek a life style change & a slower pace of life.
