Ferndown has continuously expanded over the past century to become the second-largest non-coastal town in Dorset, population-wise.
Ferndown is nestled in between gorgeous untouched countryside, including a 700-acre pine forest! Here are a few more things to know about Ferndown:
Ferndown is located on the A348, with easy access to the A31 and therefore the rest of Dorset.
The nearest railway station is located in Branksome, almost 7 miles away; however, the international airport of Bournemouth is only 4 miles away.
Ferndown has plenty of open space available, including playing fields and a sports centre with multiple amenities.
Just a short drive away, you won’t be far from the town of Bournemouth, which should contain every shop that you require for your day to day essentials and beyond.
Ferndown was originally named Fiergen, which roughly translates to ‘wooded hill’. A very apt name for this area indeed, as Ferndown is located on the edge of the New Forest, which is an incredibly extensive and gorgeous woodland.
Much of Ferndown’s history is unreported, however, in the 1900s, the town expanded rapidly with the introduction of vast amounts of housing, which has destroyed most of the ancient heathland.
The building of houses occurred due to the attraction of the New Forest to those who came and saw it from far and wide. Populations almost quadrupled in this time and have increased incredibly ever since.
At the beginning of the 20th century, there were maybe only 100 inhabitants here, in 2020 well over 20,000 people are living here.
There are plenty of developments occurring in Ferndown currently, and plans for more to happen in the future.
Holmwood Park is the most recent development creating roughly 100 new homes ranging from 3-bedroom to 5-bedroom houses.
House prices in Ferndown during March 2020 stood at £392,128, decreasing by just under one per cent over the past 12 months.
These house prices are almost £50,000 higher than the county average of Dorset, but the town has always attracted much attention for both its location and its quality of life.
In terms of property types, flats in Ferndown sold for an average of £225,576 and terraced houses for £264,837. This is according to Zoopla estimates.

“We opted for the total pack which proved wonderful. Not a thing damaged or scratched. Two items could not be moved upstairs, so Maidmans instantly arranged to have them craned on to the balcony. Wonderful service and organisation.”
“The two lads that moved us were first class. They were so helpful and so polite. Could not do enough for us. We wish them all the best for the future.”
Ferndown has three schools of varying levels in the town itself. Ferndown First School, Ferndown Middle School and Ferndown Upper School.
Each of these schools received a “good” rating from Ofsted upon their last inspection.
In terms of further education, the closest college is the Bournemouth and Poole College.
This is one of the largest colleges in the area, catering to thousands of different students every year.
Ferndown, being on an ancient heathland, has an expansive network of outdoor space.
The Longham Lakes is often considered a great place for a walk, especially if you have a dog. With over 147 species of bird here, these lakes offer a fantastic day out for the family.
If you’re a fan of golf, there is a highly rated golf club here in Ferndown with a spa and restaurant, creating something for everyone.
Outside of town, the world is your oyster. Travel south to the Jurassic Coast or maybe head into Bournemouth’s town centre.
If you’re feeling adventurous, then take the kids for a day out at GoApe and traverse the treetops, swinging through the trees.
