Goldridge is a beautiful 4 bedded bungalow in the heart of the New Forest.

The home is in a very rural location with a large garden and access to the New Forest. We often have ponies, deer and even pigs popping their heads through the gate to say hello. Goldridge provides a nurturing family home for 2 children at any one time. Each of our children will have their own room which they will be encouraged to personalise to reflect their own individual personalities. Despite its rural location, children are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities as we benefit from the beauty of the new forest, as well as all the fun of the nearby coastal towns. Our children are supported by a small, motivated, and diverse group of adults who will provide them with love, nurture, and play to ensure they are able to thrive whilst living at Goldridge.

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted.
