Ferndown is ideal for the golden years

Many people looking for property for sale in Ferndown are those who have finished their working career and are looking for an area that offers them enough to fill their new-found spare time. 

A civil parish in East Dorset, Ferndown has plenty to offer those who are looking to explore new avenues. Whether it be joining the local golf club or rambling through the various areas of woodland and green spaces, the small town has hobbies to suit a wide range of preferences.

Ferndown is the fifth largest town in Dorset, with a population of nearly 20,000, incorporating the communities of Hampreston, Longham, Stapehill and Tricketts Cross. It's situated within easy access of Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch, and it's also close to the New Forest.

With its wide variety of green space and beautiful woodland, Ferndown is the ideal place for grandchildren or other young family members to visit, and will ensure they get out of the house. Whether this be a trip to Millenium Park for a picnic or for some exercise at Ferndown Leisure Centre, there is plenty of opportunity to take in the local scenery.

The town also boasts other open spaces like Ferndown Common, which is managed by English Nature and the Herpetological Society to champion local rare wildlife, including the Dartford Warbler, the Smooth Snake and the Sand Lizard.

However there is plenty to do in Ferndown itself, thanks to its lively town centre, which is an airy and clean space for local residents, giving them access to all amenities. As a town that is proud of its rich history and roots, modern Ferndown has retained much of its former friendly village atmosphere.

The town centre offers free parking and pleasurable walking, making it accessible to people of all ages and abilities. There is even a shopmobility service on Thursdays for less able-bodied people. This ensures all residents are able to benefit from the modern shopping precinct, which also includes a library and medical centre.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801775642-ADNFCR
