The local area guide to living in Chineham

A charming commuter village by the name of Chineham, a civil parish, sits 3 miles away from the bustling historic town of Basingstoke and minutes from the A33 road, which runs from Basingstoke to Reading. This seductive geographic location has enticed, and continues to entice, city workers who prefer the simplicity village life brings.

Aside from its attractive proximity to major hubs in England, Chineham, which is part of the Basingstoke and Deane district in Hampshire, boasts leafy lanes which reveal pretty homes, great amenities and opportunities for outdoor exploration. South Downs National Park – situated an hour away by car – and New Forest National Park – a 50-minute drive – offer walking routes and cycle trails that allow you to discover breath-taking views, wildlife and a myriad of gorgeous landscapes.

If you decide to live here, you’ll be close enough to the major towns and attractions, yet far enough to enjoy the solitude of rural living.

Information about the local residents

Chineham is home to 7,776 individuals, as suggested by the 2011 Census. Chineham is also home to a considerable number of working denizens, 76% to be precise. These employed individuals typically tend to work in the surrounding areas or at Chineham Park – a large business park hosting a number of national and international companies. Residents then return to either a gorgeous detached, semi-detached or terrace property – which they own either outright or with a mortgage.

Nearby schools

Families with young children will be delighted to know that there are two exemplary schools present in the immediate area. Four Lanes Infant School currently has 268 pupils aged 4-7 years on its roll. In 2010, Ofsted, the education authority, awarded the institute an ‘Outstanding’ rating – the highest score possible – for their caring and effective learning environment.

Great Binfields Primary School, another primary institute, teaches children from the age of 4 to 11 years. The school also received praise from Ofsted in regard to pupil attainments and quality of teaching. When inspected in 2015, the education authority awarded the school a grade of ‘Good’ – the second highest rating possible. These attractive feats illustrate the quality of primary level schooling in the area.

For secondary education, teenage students will have to venture into the heart of Basingstoke, a mere 10-minute journey away, to attend secondary school. Fortunately, the historic market town is home to a number of great institutes such as The Costello School, The Vyne Community School and the independent Sherfield School.

Getting around

Chineham is praised for its excellent road links and is the main reason why so many commuters are naturally drawn here. The A33 road which sits south of the village, a mere 3 minutes away, takes commuters and locals to reading in the north (40 minutes away) and Southampton to the south (46 minutes away).

Further enhancing the desirability of Chineham is its proximity to the Big Smoke. In over an hour, the lively streets of the West End and the achingly hip boroughs of East London can be reached, as can Gatwick Airport, which means travelling in and out the country is also a simple affair.

In this sense, Chineham is car-centric. Most residents own at least one car and tend to rely heavily on them. However, there is a frequent and timely bus service available for locals and commuters. Unfortunately, there is no train station present in the village, though one can be found 10 minutes away in Basingstoke. From here, the hubs of London, Reading and Southampton can be reached with ease.

Local shops

Though Chineham may be a village, it boasts premier shopping opportunities. The Chineham Shopping Centre hosts three supermarkets (a Tesco Superstore, Marks & Spencer and Iceland) and an array of high street stores such as Boots and Matalan.

Smaller independent shops and a public library can also be found in the area, as well as medical and dental centres. One spot particularly popular with locals is The Chineham Arms. If you intend on moving to this pretty village, you’ll more than likely find yourself in here on the weekends blowing off some steam!
