About Winkworth New Forest
  • paragraph

    The pretty village of Sway is found on the Southern edge of the New Forest national park. Our location in the national park means new builds are restricted, which has helped the village keep its historic character and rural charm. You will find a variety of individual homes here, ranging from attractive cottages to large country houses. The village also offers homes with stables for horses and even homes with commoners' rights that mean you can graze animals on the forest. Sway, which is Anglo Saxon for 'noisy stream' boasts a friendly, vibrant community, against a beautiful back drop, full of rich, diverse wildlife. Plus, should you ever tire of the stunning New Forest, lovely award-winning beaches are only a stone's throw away. The village is conveniently located for Brockenhurst, Bournemouth, Basingstoke, Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester, as well as Southampton and Bournemouth Airports. London is 3 hours by train, making commuting to the capital a possibility too. Good broadband is available throughout the village, with free wifi in lots of public places. We are also scheduled to receive fibre-optic broadband very soon. Being so close to nature, with a welcoming community Sway is a great place to bring up a family. It's also popular with retirees and those moving to the countryside from London.

      A little bit of history.

      Sway was originally an Anglo Saxon settlement, but Stone Age and Bronze Age implements have been found here too. The village is mentioned in the Doomsday book four times. In more recent history, much of the chrilden's book The Children of the New Forest was set here.

      Need To Know:

      Ponies, donkeys and cattle roam on roads between the cattle grids located on the B3055 between Brockenhurst, Pitmore Lane and Shirley Homes. Accidents can happen, so it's a good idea to drive especially carefully here.


      Sway offers an array of popular village shops, including grocery shop Central Store, award-winning butcher David West who also sells organic produce, Day Lewis Pharmacy, Sway Newsagent and Post Office and florist Janet Kirk. There's also our local mobile fish monger, The Fish Stall. When it comes to kitting out your new home, you might want to check out the New Forest Wood Burning Centre, art gallery Art Sway, kitchen designers and fitters Kitchen Makers and For a spot of pampering, pop to Hairsway where they offer hairdressing, beauty treatments and a barbers. Of course the shopping destinations of Bournemouth, Southampton, Winchester and Portsmouth are also close by. Plus you will find weekly markets at nearby Lymington and New Milton.

There are award winning beaches to explore at Highcliffe and Mudeford, as well as shingle beaches as Barton on Sea and Milford on Sea. We think these beaches are just a lovely for wintery walks as they are for enjoying in summer. Within the village you'll find Jubilee Playing fields, tennis courts, cricket pitches and a children's play area, as well as the village park, a favourite with little ones. The village offers plenty of clubs and societies to join, including a hand bell ringers group, a residents association, badminton, tennis, cricket and football clubs, a drama group, a camera club and even a Scottish dancing group. There are Scout and Guides groups for the kids. Green fingered residents can also apply for local allotments. Annual events include a carnival, an open gardens programme and the village fete, as well as Christmas fairs and carol services. We also recommend a visit to Beaulieu Motor Museum and the Sammy Mills Motor Cycle Museum, great for petrolheads and children alike.
