THE SITUATION

Fordingbridge, with its distinctive seven arch bridge spanning the River Avon, is a former market town enjoying an idyllic location between the heath and woodland of the New Forest and rolling chalk downlands of Cranbourne Chase. The Avon Valley footpath from Salisbury to Christchurch runs through the town, meandering beside the Avon. The town has a high street of interesting independents shops as well as essentials such as butchers and bakers. There is also a great selection of country pubs and restaurants, as well as excellent local schooling. The A338 gives access to the cathedral city of Salisbury, with mainline railway station (approx. 8 miles north), and the bustling coastal town of Bournemouth (approx. 18 miles south). Southampton is approximately 20 miles east (via the M27), and London approximately a two hour drive.
