Hannington is located midway between Basingstoke and Newbury, forming part of the North Hampshire Downs and is therefore set within a Conservation Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the village of Kingsclere, approximately 2.5 miles away, are good local shopping facilities.
The area is well regarded for its private schools including Cheam (5 miles), Elstree, Horris Hill, St. Gabriels and Downe House.
Communications to London are excellent with a mainline station at Basingstoke with trains taking approximately 45 minutes to London Waterloo. There are also mainline stations at Overton (4 miles) and Newbury (10 miles).
