Full Details

Old Bursledon is a beautiful village on the west bank of the River Hamble and is a designated conservation area. This historical village retains close ties with the sea and the Elephant Boatyard, which still remains, and dates back centuries where Henry VII’s fleet was built. By the 1870’s the shipbuilding trade had disappeared from the village and the main industry was the growing of strawberries. The Strawberry Trail heritage walk still exists where walkers can enjoy the easy riverside, coastal and country park routes. There is also a fashionable pub, The Jolly Sailor, on the banks of the Hamble which has its own public slipway where you can arrive by SUP and enjoy a relaxed vibe on the terrace overlooking the marina. Bursledon railway line is a local line connecting with Southampton Parkway picking up fast trains reaching London Waterloo in 1 hour 10 minutes. Equally the village is convenient for motorway links to the M27 and M3.
