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.
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.
