Known as ‘the gateway to the New Forest’, Fordingbridge is perfectly placed on the edge of the New Forest, near the Dorset and Wiltshire borders.

A former market town and home to the medieval bridge with its seven graceful arches, Fordingbridge defies expectations with its beautiful scenery, lush riverbank havens, exciting nature trails and welcoming people.


With an expansive landscape dominated by the River Avon and the New Forest, Fordingbridge is the ideal place to retreat and draw a breath.

Just moments from your doorstep, walking and cycle routes are in abundance. Step out for a stroll along the Avon Valley path to discover water meadows and chalk downlands, or hop on your bike and explore the surroundings with miles of family friendly, traffic-free cycle paths. If you’re looking to unwind with a day of fishing, there are plenty of relaxing locations to cast your line and land a catch.


With the natural beauty of the New Forest, and the town centre with its array of well-known convenience stores, independent grocers and farm shops, Forest Edge truly provides the best of both worlds.

For a change of scenery, step back in time with a visit to the Countryside Museum or the Rockbourne Roman Villa, or enjoy some pony trekking with the kids at one of the nearby equestrian centres.



For a fun-packed family day out, there’s a host of activities to be discovered to help keep the lively occupied. Get the adrenalin pumping at the floating, inflatable sports Aqua Park, or nurture adventurous spirits with archery, crossbow shooting or even axe throwing at Insight Activities.

And, when the weekend fun has ended, Fordingbridge offers a good selection of nurseries, schools and further education to help young minds flourish, including The Burgate School and Sixth Form which currently exceeds the national average on all levels.


When it comes to exploring the Hampshire surroundings, you’re spoilt for choice with charming places to visit, all within one hour’s drive from Forest Edge. Enjoy a beach day in Bournemouth, or perhaps the delightful historic town of Ringwood, or maybe take a stroll around the quaint traditional villages of Beaulieu, Brockenhurst, Burley and Lyndhurst. Spend time exploring dusty antique shops or enjoy a hearty meal and a pint of locally brewed cider in one of many friendly pubs.

With plenty to see and do all around Fordingbridge and a welcoming
community, you’ll feel right at home at Forest Edge.

Materials and Design

The list of benefits of buying a Metis new home is ever-expanding as we continuously adapt our processes as ways to make homes more energy-efficient become available. We use modern building techniques, innovative materials and first-class technology to our power so that owning one of our new builds gives you the opportunity to cut your carbon footprint and reduce energy bills.

EV Charging Points

All Metis homes at Forest Edge come with an EV charging point, conveniently providing you with the capability to charge your electric vehicle safely and at home.

Solar PV Panels

Our homes are environmentally friendly, using sunlight to produce zero-carbon electricity to help cut your carbon footprint. Solar PV Panels typically produce around 50% of the electricity a household uses in a year, so you’ll also save on energy costs.

Energy Efficient Boilers

Our homes have ErP ‘A’ rated Valliant boilers with lower running costs to lower heating bills and reduce energy consumption


Our developments range from traditional homes in the countryside to exciting city centre schemes, and from small apartments to luxury houses



"It's very special to us - a lovely home in an attractive area. The architecture and the added features are superb. Metis Homes as a builder, are top class - we'd rate 10/10 from the word go. We're very happy customers."


"King Edward VII was something we didn't know we were looking for - and our new home has exceeded all expectations. When we first arrived, we knew this home was different, something we hadn't seen before. A high-quality home on a bespoke development. What's more, we are surrounded by amazing countryside with fantastic views and walks from our doorstep. Here, we have the best of both worlds."


"Metis Homes have built the development with style and space. Our home is excellent quality and very well laid out. The kitchen flows really well. Everything has been done in a convenient smart way. The garden is also really large, and we didn't expect that with a new build."
