The tiny but gorgeous hamlet of Canada is situated to the south of the A36 within the village of West Wellow. It comprises approximately 100 properties, some of which line Canada Road and Plantation Road, while others like Holly Acres, nestle along the easterly edge of Canada Common enjoying stunning and open New Forest views.

Although technically part of West Wellow, Canada has an identity of its own and has always been ‘a place apart' populated by friendly independent people still to be found among current residents. The scenery within Canada Common is some of the New Forest's finest enjoying much visiting wildlife and is popular with local dog walkers and horse riders. The Rockingham Arms is one of the most popular pubs in the area and has managed to capture local enthusiasm as well as attracting a large tourist audience with fine food in comfortable surroundings and a boutique shop selling interesting home items.

Canada Common is a beautifully tranquil and neighbourly setting that also benefits from excellent accessibility to local conveniences in West Wellow but also exceptional commuter links to all major destinations.
