When people talk of the good life and escaping the ‘rat race’ they often think of moving to the New Forest.
Located in southern England, the New Forest is known the world over as a place to visit and experience natural beauty.
The New Forest can be found in central southern England and is undoubtedly one of the UK’s premier tourist attractions, if not one of the worlds. Every year, visitors from all walks of life visit the area to experience its natural beauty.
In 2005 the New Forest was designated National Park status. The New Forest National Park offers forest and woodland, idyllic glades, open moors, and cliff top walks.
The New Forest was created in 1079 by King William 1. For him it was an ideal hunting ground, covering over 200 square miles of ancient woodlands and heathlands and located close to the royal capital of Winchester.
One special highlight is the thousands of wild ponies, which roam freely in the woodlands and open moorland, and which are frequently seen eating the grass at the side of the roads.
Covering such a vast area, the New Forest covers many towns, villages, and hamlets from the medieval Abbey village of Beaulieu to the Georgian trading port of Lymington, and Fawley standing at the very Eastern edge of the New Forest, almost on Southampton Water where the UK’s largest oil refinery is located.
Property in the New Forest
Whether you choose to buy an equestrian property, smallholding, or country cottage you will undoubtedly find the New Forest a great place to live. The convenience of the access to larger towns and villages combined with the tranquility of the beautiful New Forest and surrounding coastal areas is unrivalled.
New Forest house prices tend to rise year on year, and last year saw a price rise of over 11%.
