Suburban Life

If you are looking for a home just outside of Basingstoke town centre then there are plenty of options including Hatch Warren, Kempshott and Chineham. A short journey to the town centre to access Basingstoke’s train station linking you to London Waterloo, Reading or the South West, it also provides easy access to the M3 at either junction 6 or 7.  The ring road means access to other parts of the area is also within easy reach.

If you are seeking a brand new or nearly new home, there is no shortage of choice.


There are plenty of schooling options in these areas and for further education both Basingstoke College of Technology and Queen Mary’s College can be easily reached.


If you don’t feel like venturing into the town centre then there are retail areas located within these suburbs. The largest, Chineham Shopping Centre is home to Tesco, a library, M&S Food and Matalan along with amenities such as hairdressers, optician and estate agent services. Other supermarkets include Sainsburys at Kempshott, Asda at Brighton Hill, Aldi at St Michaels Retail Park and Lidl and Morrisons on Worting Road.

If you are looking for local things to do at the weekend then the leisure park is within easy reach by car or public transport where you can enjoy swimming, bowling, bingo and ice skating.

Sports lovers will be spoilt for choice if living in these areas. Down Grange Sports Complex is located in Pack Lane and offers athletics, football, rugby and hockey facilities. Football pitches can also be found at Basingstoke Soccer Centre in Brighton Hill. Local college Queen Mary’s has a sports centre that is open to the community and features a fitness centre and swimming pool. For those that are looking for a local gym, options include Fitness First in Chineham, Everest Health and Leisure Club and Beechdown Health and Fitness Club.
