Where is it?
Our home is within walking distance of a country park & the River Solent, along which the cruise liners approach the Port of Southampton. Nearby is the village of Hamble with its yacht marinas & a variety of old English pubs & restaurants. The city of Southampton has many historic features, including parts of the original medieval city walls. There is also a newly opened 'Titanic' museum. There is a bus service to the city just a few yards from our home.
Also, Southampton is on a main rail link to London, which takes just over an hour.
The city of Portsmouth is a short distance away, with the naval history museum, housing King Henry V111's Tudor warship 'The Mary Rose'. Also, Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship 'Victory'.
Towards the west of the city of Southampton is the New Forest with its famous New Forest ponies, & lovely old thatched cottages & cosy pubs.
The picturesque Isle of Wight is just a short ferry ride away. There are plenty of cycle tracks, and numerous attractions. Including Queen Victoria's summer residence 'Osbourne House', of which Queen Victoria was quoted as saying, "It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot".
