Riverside House, home to the RAFYC, is a quiet riverside location with views across the River Hamble. Hamble village, a centre of yachting on the south coast, has many links with the water; four marinas, three boatyards, sailing schools, chandleries, brokers, boat shares and much more. The club itself was originally a Victorian house, updated and extended over the years, the bedrooms were refurbished in 2020. Our accommodation is offered as room only, there are many options locally for breakfast, lunch and an evening meal. Breakfast is available at Jennie’s from 08.00, by 09.00 the Beach Cafe will be open with river views. There are also 4 pubs and a dozen or more restaurants or cafes so you wont go hungry or thirsty. We are within walking distance of all these and offer parking for residents.
Here is a list of the local cafes, pubs/restaurants and other services, local services list. Advanced booking is recommended for many of these, especially at weekends and in the evenings.
There are many walks and places of interest in the area plus a ferry service across the Hamble to Warsash giving access to longer circular walks and cycle routes. The Royal Victoria Country Park was home to a military hospital built to deal with casualties from the Crimean war through to WWII, it is now an extensive green area with many walks and a museum in the original chapel recalling the history of the site.
