Add Botley to your Itinerary

Botley Mills

Described by the 18th century radical journalist William Cobbett as”the most delightful village in the world”, Botley is a small historic market town within Hampshire’s Hamble Valley.

The village developed as a natural crossing point for the River Hamble, and received its first market charter from Henry III in 1267. The village grew on the success of its mill, its coaching inns, and more recently strawberries.

Botley today, reflects its heritage and retains its traditional charm. Visitors may walk the self guided Cobbett trail, stop for refreshments at the many excellent local venues, visit the individual shops in the Square or Botley Mills and join in with the summer festival.  However, Botley is also sited in extensive scenic countryside, close to Manor Farm Country Park, the River Hamble, the long distance Strawberry Trail, and the picturesque coast of the Solent at Hamble-le-Rice.

So whether you are looking for great food, individual shops, or a taste of the countryside, all in a charming historical setting, then Botley could well be the destination for you.
