Location

Hampshire offers a wealth of treasures, from rolling countryside, unspoilt beaches, glorious gardens and pretty villages to ancient forests, bustling market towns, historic ships and imposing castles.

This diverse, south Hampshire village is located on the eastern shores of Southampton Water, beside the Royal Victoria Country Park. The village takes its name from the 13th century Cistercian monastery there, its well-preserved ruins still remaining today. The heart of the village retains some of its traditional charm and is proud of its waterside heritage, with ample opportunities for sailing in the nearby village of Hamble-le-Rice. Nearby, The Royal Victoria Country Park was the site of The Royal Victoria Hospital, the first purpose-built military hospital. Now, all that remains is the hospital chapel and 200 acres of wood and parkland. There are lovely walks to explore and a variety of wildlife, as well as spectacular views from the top of the 150-foot chapel tower across Southampton Water, one of the busiest shipping canals in the country. Together with its beautiful setting, tea rooms and a narrow gauge railway, the park provides visitors with a fascinating day out. Netley lies within very easy reach of Southampton and its impressive range of attractions. There is an easy drive to the New Forest, as well as Portsmouth's historic dockyard, home to the magnificent HMS Victory, and Gunwharf Quays, a retail outlet perched on the waterside. This south Hampshire waterside village is a convenient base from which to explore this fascinating area.
