SITUATION Sway is a small but vibrant village on the southern edge of the New Forest National Park, renowned for its friendliness, the community runs a host of clubs and societies including archery, cricket, drama, football and the annual Sway Fete and Carnival - a ten day festival to bring the village together and raise money for good causes. The village boasts two local pubs, namely, The Fox and Hounds and The Silver Hind, a Newsagents with Post Office, Doctors Surgery, Award Winning Butchers and a Deli Cafe. The village has the benefit of St Lukes Church of England Primary School. Whilst the walkers, horse riders and cyclists will enjoy the surrounding New Forest heathland, it is Sway's proximity to the town of Lymington and the Solent coastline (just 4 miles away) which makes it a favourite, attracting many marine enthusiasts. There is also the benefit of a mainline train station which offers travel directly to London Waterloo.
