We know that Ringwood has a rich and interesting history due to its reference in old documents, including the great survey of England, the Doomsday Book. Much of its history centres around ownership of the village itself, its mills and local manors, which were passed between the nobility including earls and royalty. In more recent history, Ringwood became well known for producing woollen gloves and for a linen cuff and collar factory which produced economic prosperity in the 19th century. One of the most interesting facts about Ringwood is that it still has a weekly market which has been going since the Middle Ages.
Ringwood delights in an impressive blend of older preserved properties and new developments that carefully consider the town’s unique heritage and surroundings. Those searching for property in Ringwood will find this area and nearby hamlets and villages offer a selection of property types, ranging from small flats to grand Georgian detached homes and cottages. Ringwood’s premium real estate is usually found in areas like Avon Castle Drive, Ashley Heath, Hightown Hill, Hangersley Hill, Crow Hill and the surrounding New Forest.
Ringwood properties are sometimes vast in size, catering to families and even inter-generation living through outbuildings and annexes. If you’re seeking a beautiful home with plenty of outdoor space, you’re likely to have plenty of options in Ringwood. Many of the properties that hit the market boast at least half an acre of gardens and outdoor space. You don’t have to buy a period home to get lots of outdoor space, however. Some contemporary houses have been built in the area that can rival the size of Ringwood’s older properties. That being said, there are many homes of an array of sizes for sale in Ringwood. Properties including flats can be found inside and outside the central areas of the town, including several flats and retirement flats on Bickerley Green.
Ringwood attracts professionals and families who work in nearby larger towns like Bournemouth and Poole but wish to escape the hustle and bustle of the vibrant coastal scene. It also attracts retirees wishing to buy their dream forever home. The market is mostly made up of residential buyers but there are investment opportunities here too, which Hearnes can help you uncover. Property investors can take advantage of a strong rental market and even a holiday-let market that averages great yields.
Considerations before you buy property in Ringwood
One of the best first steps into the Ringwood market is to speak with a local expert. Our Ringwood estate agents will provide you with the must-knows and expert insight to support your search. We can save you time looking in unsuitable areas and help you uncover properties that match your criteria quicker. We might even be able to point out nearby villages and hamlets that could be of interest.
Families living in or nearby Ringwood will be given priority to send their children to the many local schools, all of which boast a good Ofsted rating and have done for many years. There are two local primary schools, namely Ringwood Junior School CTA and Ringwood Church of England Infant School. There are also two secondary schools and sixth forms proving education to students until 18 years old. These are Ringwood School Academy and Ringwood Waldorf School. Alternatively, students may wish to further their education at the nearby Bournemouth and Poole College or even progress to attend Bournemouth University. Also, the area is well served by an excellent selection of schools in the private sector for all ages.
Ringwood has strong road links to major surrounding towns which provides efficient commutes for professionals. The A38 heads straight to Bournemouth and on to Poole. Heading west on the A31 will take motorists to other market towns and villages, including Ferndown and Wimborne Minster, whereas heading east will lead to Southampton, Portsmouth, London and the North.
Ringwood is also serviced by frequent buses operated by More Bus. Ringwood is a common stop across many routes in all directions, making it easier to get to nearby villages as well as major coastal hotspots such as Poole and Bournemouth. Taxis also operate in the region.
Ringwood might be a market town but it can become a buzz of activity if you know where to look. Some of the best attractions for families to explore are the Moors Valley Country Park and Forest with its vast walking routes and large play areas. Not to forget the local Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre to see different animals you don’t normally get to experience up close, including snakes and lizards. Solos and couples may enjoy a day out at the Ringwood Brewery to learn about their craft ales - and of course sample one or two.
