New Homes in Hampshire
Sitting in South East England along the country’s picturesque coastline, Hampshire borders Berkshire, Dorset, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire, as well as the English Channel. Whether you want to live in a bustling city like Southampton or Portsmouth, or somewhere with a more rural feel, houses in Hampshire are usually very popular.
From family trips to the Isle of Wight, to an array of beaches, country parks and open spaces, Hampshire is famous for being the home of Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. With the South Downs and New Forest covering almost half of the land in the county, don’t miss our developments in Hampshire below.

Things to see and do in Hampshire
There’s lots to keep the whole family occupied across Hampshire. Delve into the literary heritage of the region by visiting cultural attractions dedicated to the likes of Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, or treat your little ones to a day out at Paultons Park. Home of Peppa Pig World, your kids will also love a trip to the seaside on a sunny day.
Natural beauty is a real feature of this part of England, not least in spots such as the South Downs and North Wessex Downs. The New Forest serves up fantastic walks over soaring cliff tops and through open moorland and pretty glades, while there are plenty of noteworthy cathedrals, castles, country parks and museums to explore too.
Good schools can be a dealbreaker for many people, so choosing the right area of Hampshire for your kids is crucial. There are lots of schools judged to be outstanding by Ofsted across the county, with primary options including St Faith’s CofE in Winchester, Tower Hill Primary in Farnborough and Aldershot’s St Joseph’s Catholic Primary.
The strong choices continue at secondary level through institutions such as Hounsdown School in the Totton area of Southampton. This is also outstanding in Ofsted’s eyes, while Thornden School in Eastleigh and Winchester’s Westgate School share the same honour.
