Nestled on the edge of Ringwood Forest and close to the New Forest National Park, Alderholt is a thriving and vibrant community centred around its 19th Century Church, St James’, and the swallows that nest in its porch. The village pub offers a warm welcome as does the Sports and Social club which has its home on the large recreation grounds with sports pitches, tennis courts, sports court and
children’s play facilities. The Village Hall hosts a calendar of popular events throughout the year that bring the village community together.
For the young family Alderholt village has good infants and junior schools. St James’ CE VC First School is a “small village school with a big heart” that offers a happy and rounded education for children from 4 – 11 years old. There are also two pre-school groups that meet in the village offering early years education and a toddler group that meet at the Village Hall each week.
Just a three mile drive from the village is the town of Fordingbridge, a bustling town which is home to a range retail, banks and restaurants. Sitting on the banks of the River Avon with a history that can be traced back to the Domesday Book, Fordingbridge is within easy reach of Alderholt as is Ringwood just a few miles to the south. Both towns offer the day-to-day conveniences for modern life. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury is only a 30 minute drive from Alderholt. Salisbury offers shopping of all types in its wide range of independent and national stores. There is a popular market on Tuesdays and Saturdays and artisan markets during other times of the year, including a popular farmers’ market and a Christmas market.
Holly Grove, Alderholt, offers you the best of modern life – a beautiful home you can grow in, a community you can enjoy, wonderful countryside close-by and an easy connection to cultural city life.
