Beautiful surroundings and so much to do
Droxford has particular appeal to anyone who loves outdoor life. It is situated in the scenic Meon Valley, with over 600 glorious square miles of the South Downs National Park to ramble and roam. There are miles of footpaths to explore, including the 11-mile Meon Valley Trail, which can be tackled on foot, on a bike or on horseback.
The crystal clear, chalk-stream waters of the Meon flow just past the village and its banks are ideal for quiet strolls. Afterwards, you might want to stop for some refreshment in one of the local pubs or browse for antiques.
It is just 12 miles to beautiful Winchester. Apart from its majestic, world famous cathedral it has some tempting independent shops, markets and restaurants and there is always something interesting to see in its museums or at the Theatre Royal.
If sailing is your passion, you will be pleased to know that the sailing clubs and marinas of the River Hamble are easily reached from Droxford; ideal for taking the boat out for the day or treating friends to a day trip over to France. With Portsmouth only 15 miles away, and Southampton just under 20 miles, there is also the option of a ferry to the Isle of Wight, the Channel Islands, France or Spain.
For even more distant horizons, you can embark at Southampton Ocean Cruise Terminal, where the big cruise companies such as Cunard and Royal Caribbean operate from.
