Botley 2 miles; Southampton 7 miles.
Durley is an attractive small south Hampshire village, only a short drive from Bishops Waltham and Botley, and 7 miles north east of Southampton. The village is surrounded by lovely countryside which provides super rural walks, yet there are excellent transport links close by which take you to many places of interest. Well worth visiting is the picturesque Meon Valley, and the lovely River Hamble, and nearby Marwell Zoo provides a great day out. Alternatively, take a trip to the fascinating Royal Naval Dockyard at Portsmouth, where you can explore HMS Victory, visit historic Winchester or how about treating yourselves at Hedge End Shopping Outlet or even venture down to Southampton's West Quay? With The New Forest, Poulton’s Park and sandy beaches within 40 minutes, there's so much to see and do catering for all interests within easy reach of this lovely area.

Very good value for money. Great for quiet holiday. Owner was very friendly. I would stay there again.
Mr O'Hare, Innaloo, November 2012
Excellent location for so many attractions in Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton and many more. The added attraction of seeing the horses in the stables on site was most enjoyable. Most enjoyable holiday, well equipped cottage and cakes left by owner a very nice touch.
