paragraphThe 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.
