The Location / Directions
Within close proximity to the M3 and the A303, Allington’s secluded, tranquil location may feel a world away, but is in fact surprisingly well connected. The north Wiltshire hamlet is ideally placed between two of the south’s most affluent and desirable areas, with the city of Salisbury eight miles to the south west and Andover twelve miles to the east.
With its famous leaning spire, the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury is steeped in history, from an original copy of the Magna Carta dating back to 1215 AD to nearby Stonehenge, a globally recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site. Andover, meanwhile, offers a genuine taste of old England, its picturesque high street is now home to galleries, chic eateries and traditional country pubs.
To the south-east, Romsey (20 miles) and Winchester (30 miles) are both within easy distance, the former an attractive and traditional English market town, the latter a cosmopolitan cathedral city. Surrounded by pristine and breathtakingly beautiful countryside, Allington lies just 15 miles from the northernmost fringes of the New Forest, with almost 220 square miles of heath and woodland, the area was once the playground of royalty in the 11th century and has changed very little in the intervening thousand years. Today, its chocolate box villages, thatched pubs and vast expanses of unspoilt scenery attract millions of visitors every year – although you’d be hard pressed to believe it as you stroll in solitary splendour amongst ancient oak, yew and beech trees and gaze out across deserted vistas of rolling heathland.
The coast lies less than 20 miles to the south. A hotspot for waterports, the Solent is recognised as one of the world’s leading yachting locations, backed up by the proud maritime heritage of Southampton and Portsmouth, with their ferry links to France, the Channel Islands and further afield. Less than 45 minutes drive from Allington, Southampton Airport is now a major international travel hub, connecting the region with destinations across Europe.
