Home from home in larger than life Hampshire

Hampshire is the largest county in southern England and third largest shire county in the United Kingdom. This affluent area, with good independent and state schools and four universities, is home to some of England's most stunning villages, coastlines and historic cities.

Property in Hampshire is a fabulous mix of urban and rural, ranging from seafront apartments in Portsmouth to thatched cottages in the New Forest and new executive developments close to transport links. Almost every style of property and all price ranges are featured throughout the county.

Due to the good railway and motorway links to London, many dormitory towns have sprung up since the 60s, making the area ideal commuter territory for those travelling into the capital daily.

Hogging the limelight

Natives in the county have been known as the "Hampshire Hogs" since the 18th century due to the area's agricultural heritage. Its proximity to the Solent also makes it the No.1 sailing destination in the United Kingdom, and annual regattas are a popular attraction for all the family.

The world-renowned New Forest nestles within the county and is a huge draw for tourists and local people alike, offering many opportunities for leisure pursuits such as walking, cycling, horse-riding or picnicking.

Visitors may even spot a delightful New Forest pony happily grazing there as they tuck into their sandwiches!

Easy access to all routes

Mainline railways and motorways connect to all areas of London within 1-2 hours. Southampton Airport is less than 2 hours away and you can catch a ferry at Portsmouth for a short European crossing.


Hampshire is a delightful county in which to put down roots and buy a property, and you will be spoilt for choice with the diversity of styles on the market. Town and country living are both possible, with each area offering its own attractions, depending on your choice of lifestyle.
