With its medieval bridge, smugglers myths, proximity to the New Forest, Hampshire coast and bright lights of Bournemouth, Fordingbridge is a charming and idyllic location that is a much sought-after property hotspot.
The town’s timeless charm is mixed with the independent traders that have moved with the times to provide a selection of great services and shops that focus on customer service. There are some good eateries, great places to walk and annual events covering a range of occasions and interests.
There is a good leisure centre in nearby Sandy Balls or movie buffs can catch a ‘talkie’ at the Regal Cinema which is a not-for-profit restored art deco movie house that is more than a little bit special. There are several fisheries in the area plus several golf courses. However the real winner is the great outdoors, there’s just so much of it! Yes, we know it’s big out there, but Fordingbridge offers mile after mile of unspoilt countryside for picnics, dog walks or just a peaceful stroll.
On the route connecting Bournemouth and Salisbury (A338) Fordingbridge is of course most celebrated for its medieval, 7 span bridge. Due south the road connects with the A31 that heads through the stunning New Forest on route to the M27. There is no rail station but Bournemouth is a 24 minute drive and where you’ll find both a main station and airport.
