Keyhaven, Hampshire


This small, quiet village overlooks the Solent and has lovely views of Hurst Castle and the Isle of Wight. Although there are no shops, there are two sailing clubs and a small pub.

The village is part of the larger Keyhaven Nature Reserve, which spans almost 500 acres of land. With mudflats and salt marshes, the nature reserve is a Mecca for wildlife. From Barn Owls to brown hares, you will find an abundance of species settled into a truly unique habitat.

Visitors can follow the long distance Solent Way trail, which runs the length of the nature reserve or they can explore several circular walks and footpaths in the area.
