Lone Pine Park: Luxury Retirement Living


In a tranquil woodland setting, nestled alongside some of England’s most magnificent dwellings, it’s hard to imagine how Lone Pine Park could be improved.

On the edge of the New Forest, and within easy reach of the south coast, here you’ll find some of the most luxurious park homes you can buy. Its bucolic ‘Millionaire’s Row’ location is a rural idyll, tranquil and secluded, but just minutes away from all the amenities you could require.

Continued evolution has added even more prestige to what is already one of Britain’s most exclusive park home estates. And that process is ongoing, with the gradual addition of more high-end homes.  

The grand houses which surround the park bring a sense of exclusivity to the locale, and that is enhanced by the neighbouring, members-only Ferndown Golf Course. Soon prospective Lone Pine residents will be able to buy their very own luxury home overlooking the course. Such a prime spot will cost over half a million pounds, reflecting the cachet of this part of the country.

The peaceful 14.5 acre private estate, which is having a gated entry system installed, is defined by woodland and there is a real sense that you are in the heart of the countryside. Great care has been taken to ensure that the layout and landscaping remains sympathetic to the natural character of the park. A lovely touch is the individually named cul-de-sacs, which make up the park. From ‘Fairies Drive’ you can amble into ‘Honeysuckle Close’ before popping in to see friends in ‘Foxglove Glade’.

Little details like that make Lone Pine feel like an exclusive, picturesque village, and that ethos runs through every aspect of the development.

The driveways are lined with pretty rhododendron bushes and a carefully planned tree management scheme means sunlight floods into the generous private gardens of the homes. In fact, a lot of thought has gone into the siting of each dwelling, with privacy and individuality high on the list of priorities.

You won’t see row after row of bland, white boxes overlooking each other here. The layout is designed to maximse the plots. No two homes are the same, but each is architecturally magnificent in terms of external design and internally can be designed to buyers’ exact requirements.

There’s a good choice of properties available, constructed by manufacturers including Lissett, Stately-Albion, Aspire Homes and Prestige Homeseeker with more bespoke models arriving soon to offer the residents exactly what they require.

The community at Lone Pine is made up of working, semi-retired and retired people over the age of 55, and they can choose the kind of lifestyle they want to live. The park is very much a part of this prestigious area, dating back more than 110 years, when tent camping began here. Over the decades it evolved from camping to holiday lodges and more recently, to residential park homes. Four years ago, Lone Pine was purchased by Premier Park Homes Ltd and its transformation began, with larger plots and new roads. In fact the whole infrastructure is being upgraded.

The surrounding area offers plenty of ways to occupy your days. Ferndown, just over two miles from Lone Pine Park, is a small, pleasant town on the edge of the New Forest, close to the A31, with two supermarkets and three coffee shops. A little further away is the sedate resort of Bournemouth, with excellent shops including department stores and gorgeous stretches of golden Blue Flag beaches. Bournemouth has a traditional pier and lovely promenade that stretches for miles.

The New Forest is a National Park with an enchanting character. The remote beauty of gorse-spangled heathland, the serene scene of the iconic New Forest ponies and some of Britain’s prettiest little villages are just some of its attractions.
