Picturesquely situated in 111 acres of parkland and woodland on the banks of the river Hamble, Fairthorne Manor is eight miles east of Southampton and is within two hours travel from London.
Directions: From M27 J7 take the A334 signposted Botley, keeping Sainsbury’s on your left as you leave the junction roundabout. Continue on the A334 over 4 roundabouts. Continue on the road through Botley village, and past Botley Mills, still on the A334. At the top of the rise take the right turn, signposted YMCA National Centre. Continue along this road and you will see the exit drive first. At this point slow as the entrance drive is just after a blind corner on the right. The nearest train station is Botley. You need to go through a barrier controlled gate.
