From affordability to safety and the number of green spaces, these are all important factors when searching for a new home. Located on the edge of Fleet, Hart has consistently been voted as one of Britain's 'best places to live' by the Halifax Quality of Life Survey.
Hart is a local district in North Hampshire, England. As a country, Hampshire has even more to enjoy. The landscape includes two National Parks, the South Downs and the New Forest. The coastline offers the historic ports of Southampton and Portsmouth, the beaches of Bournemouth and the offshore charms of the Isle of Wight. Winchester is the county town, distinguished by its superb cathedral, while market towns such as Farnham and Romsey retain their historic appeal.
Alice Holt Forest, Frensham Ponds and Fleet Pond are all beautiful natural places to spend time. You could learn to sail on Hawley Lake, or play golf at the North Hants or Oak Park clubs, while Oakley Park in Fleet provides traditional swings and sports pitches.
History can be glimpsed at King John's Castle and the Norman church in Odiham, or in the many old buildings of Greywell's Conservation Area. Hartley Wintney has a village pond with a quaint thatched duck house, and is home to the oldest cricket club in Hampshire. They are all beautiful places to visit and explore with family and friends.
The Basingstoke Canal, whose own history goes back to the 18th century, passes through Greywell, Odiham and Crookham Village, giving the opportunity for towpath strolls and leisurely boat trips.
