About the area
Kings Gate is just 5 miles from the restful, attractive town of Winchester, and 10 miles from Southampton, set amid countryside fields with good links for travel and village shopping. Big brands, and wonderfully independent stores in the town centres make excellent shopping for everyone, while more locally a Co-op for daily items and a Sainsbury’s are ideal for essentials.
From local pubs to town centre restaurants and entertainment, not to mention closeness to the coast, Kings Gate is the place to be.
The South Downs form the backdrop to a delightful area rich with interest for all. Colden Common is ideal for dog walking with lovely grounds, while Marwell Zoo has a wide variety of animals with excellent staff and is ideal for children.
For families, schooling ranges from charming local primaries to town secondaries. Kings Gate is also in the catchment area for Kings' School, Winchester. "Teaching is consistently of a very high quality. Teachers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their subjects. They know their students very well and continually challenge them to achieve their best" Quote from Ofsted.
Travel is easy; Winchester rail station is under 6 miles away, many local bus services give good coverage, and the M3 skirts the area.
