New homes in Hampshire: idyllic countryside and the stunning South Coast

27 September 2018

For those seeking a change and a new way of life, now is the perfect time to make the move and find a new home in Hampshire. With its ancient woodland, beautiful heathland, pretty villages and a 40-mile ‘secret’ coast, Hampshire provides the perfect area to choose to live in and lay down family roots. 

Offering the perfect blend of city, coast and country, Hampshire is blessed with the natural beauty of two National Parks, a thriving culture full of history and heritage, plus various market towns just waiting to be explored; everything you would expect from a quintessentially English county, plus, so much more.

Venture just a few miles out of Hampshire’s towns or cities and you’ll find countryside that includes 3,000 plus miles of footpaths, bridleways and byways and twelve long distance footpaths. For water sports enthusiasts a visit to the Solent, the home of ocean sailing is a must and for any cricket fans, take a trip to the Ageas Bowl, near Southampton for the opportunity to watch world class cricket.

As well as the picturesque villages to explore, there are plenty of hidden gems throughout the county, offering a wide variety of things to see and do close to your new home. From enjoying the great outdoors either by foot or by bike to exploring landscaped gardens or visiting one of the many historical sites and museums in the area there is something for all the family to enjoy. 

Here are just a few suggestions about the places you could visit:

Explore the award-winning beaches of Hayling Island
Retaining all the attractions of a traditional seaside resort, Hayling Island has always appealed to holidaymakers, families and locals alike. With its three main beaches winning both the European Blue Flag and the Keep Britain Tidy Group Seaside Award Flag, they offer plenty of seaside fun and plenty of bucket and spade action for those young and old! Add to this, a visit to the Funland Amusement Park, where you can experience the thrill of a roller coaster ride or take the plunge on the Beaver Creek log ride and you have the perfect seaside day out.

Enjoy a day exploring Portsmouth’s historic dockyard
Open year-round and offering something for every adventurer to enjoy, Portsmouth’s historic dockyard provides experiences that bring history to life. Explore historic ships including Lord Nelson’s world-famous flagship HMS Victory, take the complimentary waterbus to Gosport and explore Cold War-era submarine HMS Alliance or visit one of the exhibitions on show. For those adventurous enough, take a trip to Action Stations where you can train like a Royal Marines Commando or try your hand at the Ninja Force assault course.

Discover Beaulieu – national motor museum, gardens, exhibitions and much more
The perfect place to take the children, as well as mum, dad and grandparents; Beaulieu offers a variety of attractions with something for everyone to enjoy. See over 250 vehicles at the world-famous motor museum, take a fascinating look into the Montagu family home or lose yourself in the serene gardens. Walk in the footsteps of medieval monks at Beaulieu Abbey, visit the ‘World of Top Gear’ and save your feet and enjoy a ride on the ‘skytrain’
