We probably won't be moving for another year or so but I definitely want to start looking at areas now and doing my research. So which areas are worth looking at? Must be a safe family friendly area, lots to do with young kids within a short driving distance, good schools, nice parks and big Green areas for walking/running etc. Preferably not too far from Hampshire.

Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance.

I'm further west, but if I wanted to stay near Hants I'd maybe look at Wimborne, Corfe Mullen, Lytchett Matravers - all lovely, green and with good schools, plus near enough to Poole and Bournemouth. Christchurch area also nice, and the outskirts of the New Forest e.g. Highcliffe, Ringwood.

Actually meant to say Lytchett Minster there, but Lytchett Matravers good too!

Christchurch and Wimborne tick all your boxes, with the added benefit for Christchurch as having two rivers and the sea.
