Why Move to Hook?
The small town of Hook is relatively small, home to under 10,000 residents but it has some very attractive features and handy links into Basingstoke, Southampton, and Portsmouth via the M3.
Until the 18th century, only a few scattered farms could be found in the area; small hamlets did not begin to appear until inns sprung up to serve travellers. Hook was located on the main London to Exeter stagecoach route.
Bounded on the east side by the picturesque valley of the River Whitewater, and to the south by two areas of common land, Hook is awash with plenty of green areas.
Whilst travel to larger towns and cities for work is most definitely a viable option, Hook also has some large businesses based within its own boundaries providing plenty of local employment.
Serco Group Plc is a FTSE top 250 company managing over 500 contracts worldwide. And Trimble Inc. is a Sunnyvale, California-based hardware, software, and services technology company.
Hook is a bustling community and provides those who live here with more than adequate facilities and entertainment venues.
There is a large Tesco Superstore, the town has its own train station and more than enough restaurants and pubs to cater for everyone’s requirements.
Family friendly Hook is set amid some wonderful natural beauty such as Wellington Country Park, Bassett’s Mead Country Park and Elvetham Heath Nature Reserve.
Whether you are looking for your first home, expanding your family or searching for a peaceful retirement location Hook could be the answer.
