Relocating to Ringwood
Relocating to Ringwood
If you are thinking of moving home and relocating to the Hampshire/Dorset area, then look no further than relocating to Ringwood. A market town on the doorstep of The New Forest, at a crossing point of the River Avon, it is rural and yet well connected.
Ringwood’s proximity to the A31 makes it an ideal choice for those that want to enjoy a more rural lifestyle on the south coast, but still need to commute to Southampton or London. You are also within a short drive of Bournemouth airport with flights available across Europe, and Southampton airport offering both domestic and international flights.
The market town is a favourite with families, having a reputation for good schools. Its primary schools have all been rated highly by Ofsted and its secondary school received a ‘good’ in its 2013 inspection. There is also the excellent Moyles Court School, an independent day and boarding school set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, which is an attraction for many families.
Ringwood’s town centre is a mix of independent shops, coffee shops, restaurants and larger supermarkets catering for all requirements. Its centre is usually a bustling atmosphere that is often lacking in many town centres today. It is the abundance of local amenities and Ringwood’s location on the south coast that make it an attractive proposition for those looking for a change in pace for retirement.
Ringwood is superbly located to offer an extensive variety of things to do and places to visit. Everything from wildlife parks to golf, to country parks to beaches, water sports and sailing – it is all within a short drive.
Moving to Ringwood
The property market in Ringwood is buoyant. Given the good location and good schools it is a popular place to live amongst locals and those looking to move into the area. You will find a good range of property from large luxury homes, to modest family housing and retirement apartments in the town centre.
The town remains a delightful, unspoilt historic town that still has a Wednesday morning street market. So, if you’re thinking of slowing the pace a little, and want a rural, but not remote lifestyle then you should consider relocating to Ringwood.
