About the area
A delightful place to call home, Romsey offers all the amenities needed for everyday life whilst retaining a distinct sense of history. The awe-inspiring Norman Abbey, which plays host to an eclectic annual music programme, dominates the town and is surrounded by medieval streets. Watermills play an important part in the history of Romsey (The Domesday Book of 1086 providing the earliest record of watermills here), and Sadler's Mill, dating back to the 16th century, is almost certainly the most famous of the town's surviving mills.
Romsey Abbey, originally built to house a community of Benedictine nuns, is open daily to visitors. You may also wish to take part in The Mayor's Picnic - famous for its popular Duck Race - hosted mid-summer and held in Romsey's Memorial Park. Or perhaps you'd prefer the medieval King John's House, Tudor Cottage and former Victorian Gun shop, which together make a new heritage centre that boasts amazing period gardens and a bubbling mill stream as well as offering spellbinding displays.
In Romsey, the past, present and future merge successfully and the recently renovated town centre now boasts a Waitrose supermarket, a department store, and over 100 other retail outlets, including high street chains and local shops, catering to all the needs of modern living.
This superb selection of 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom homes combine high specification, generosity of space and energy efficiency with a variety of enviable features and additional touches that combine to offer everything modern living requires and more. Situated in Romsey, the town itself complements the development and offers all the amenities required for modern life, while retaining a distinct and at times awe-inspiring sense of history. The combination of this wonderful selection of homes and the town in which they are located could be seen as a meeting of the ideal and the idyllic.
Romsey offers a broad range of leisure activities ranging from Romsey's well equipped Sports Centre to the Romsey Rugby Union Football Club, to "The Romsey Rapids" an all-year-round tropical water wonderland. Exclusive to Romsey is the The Mayor's Picnic - famous for its popular Duck Race - hosted early-mid summer and held in Romsey's Memorial Park - something that everybody should experience at least once!
The historic setting of the town does not mean short-thrift when it comes to modern living and great shopping. The recently renovated town centre boasts a Waitrose supermarket, a department store, and over 100 other retail outlets, including high street chains and local shops. Whatever you need or desire can be easily found with an abundance of choice and competitive prices.
