The local area Botley is a historic village in Hampshire, England. The village was once described as “the most delightful village in the world” by 18th century journalist and radical politician William Cobbett. The village was 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. However, Botley is also cited in extensive scenic countryside, close to Manor Farm, River Hamble Country Park and the River Hamble, the long distance Strawberry Trail, and the picturesque coast of the Solent at Hamble.
The local primary school ( Botley C of E) is very poplar, there is a beautiful local Church, local equestrian centre, railway links, nearby access to the M27, and local eating and drinking establishments.
