Those embarking on a Hampshire home search will find its combination of rolling countryside, coastal areas and access to London hard to replicate elsewhere. It is known for its wealth of impressive period property, which can be found across the county in both city and rural locations.
For those who are looking for help with their Hampshire home search criteria Garrington South West operates in areas of the New Forest, Southampton, Winchester and westwards through to Dorset. Garrington South then cover the northern and eastern areas of the county to its borders with Surrey, Berkshire and Sussex.
The county has two national parks, the New Forest and the more recently designated South Downs National Park covering forty five percent of the total land area of the county. The cities of Portsmouth and Southampton have a long naval history and are two of England’s largest ports. Southampton is famous for being the busiest cruise terminal in the UK and the world’s largest cruise ships are often seen in port. Both conurbations have passenger ferries to the Isle of Wight which is an area we cover for Hampshire home search and has a busy property market for owner occupiers, investments and holiday homes. The area also offers ferry routes to continental Europe via companies such as P&O and Brittany Ferries.
The New Forest is another sought after area for those on a Hampshire home search for a second home. It has the combined advantages of supporting a rural lifestyle and offers many coastal leisure activities. It is a living and working environment where ponies and cattle are free to roam and deer can be found deep in the forest. Many residents of the forest commute to London from Brockenhurst from which you can access London in approximately 90 minutes. The coastal area of The Forest offers good sailing out of Lymington into the Solent with a ferry link to the Isle of Wight.
Winchester continues in its increasingly popularity with those carrying out a Hampshire home search with a view to moving from London. It has all the facilities of a city but maintains its village feel and holds a very popular weekly market. The big draw to those relocating is the rapid train line back into London, which takes approximately 60 minutes.
