Hello all

just beginning this journey. Still at the can I do/afford this stage, not to mention finding an affordable plot😨 in or near to the New Forest in Hampshire and convince my husband it is a good idea. All while still living abroad. 😲

Welcome. We were living in Belgium when we purchased our plot. It already had planning permission but we wanted to build further back on the plot. Took us a year to get new permission. Made many trips over to meet architect and planners. Flights, car hire, hotels etc. Worth every bit of hassle when we got permission.

Welcome! We have just bought a plot just outside of the New Forest - nr Romsey. The forest is lovely but also there are so many more restrictions on planning, so do your research before you buy 🙂 I had always wanted to live in the forest but when we looked seriously at the practicalities and expense, we decided to change our search to neighbouring villages.
