Hamble: A family haven on the south coast

Hamble: A family haven on the south coast

England’s south coast is home to some of the country’s most beautiful sea views. Hampshire in particular takes up a fantastic stretch of the coast offering a wealth of picturesque scenery.

Growing families who want to relocate to a place by the sea could look at property for sale in Hamble.

Once the UK’s front line of defence in WWII, reminders of Hamble's rich history can be seen around the town. The fuel terminal contains decommissioned anti-aircraft guns and the village is also home to a counterscarp which dates back to the 17th century.

The quaint Hampshire village is located in between Southampton and Portsmouth with fantastic transport links to both. Hamble railway station provides services that run in each direction once every hour.

Education is often an important feature for parents when moving to a new place. Hamble has two schools in the immediate area, making the school run nice and easy. The Hamble Primary School and Hamble Community Sports College are located close to the town centre. 

The Pavilion provides an all weather sports facility which is perfect for weekend exercise and sporting fun. There are also a number of kids youth clubs in the village including Hamble Brownies, Creative Kidz and the Hamble Sea Scouts.

There’s plenty of things for adults to do as well, with a selection of restaurants and pubs in the local community. Popular favourites include the award winning Bugle gastro pub and the Waters Edge Bar & Restaurant.

Every Friday Hamble Memorial Hall also plays host to the village market. Locals come to buy fresh produce, as well as delicious home made pastries and cakes. The market has run for 30 years and is also a great place to get involved with the community.

For those looking to take up a new hobby the Hamble School of Yachting is also located in the town. Whether you are a seasoned sailor or a nautical novice, lessons are available according to your skill level.
