Buying or Renting in Chilworth, Southampton

Chilworth is one of the more up market areas close to Southampton City Centre. It attracts mainly working professionals and families.


This Hampshire village is very close to the city of Southampton. Good travel connections and restricted development have led to the village becoming particularly affluent. Called “Celeworda” in the Domesday book, it is now in two parts. Modern Chilworth lays along the straight ‘new’ stretch of the Southampton to Romsey road, and old Chilworth around the ‘old’ road.


Residential Area

The area offers mainly large detached family homes with plenty of character. It also has the odd cottage and smaller detached home.



The town is very close to the ‘ASDA’ superstore in Chandlers Ford. Plus it’s only a quick journey to Southampton City Centre, Romsey or North Baddesley, all offering shops, hairdressers and pharmacies. There is also the Chilworth Manor hotel and Chilworth Science Park



There is a small public house on the main road called The Chilworth Arms (formerly The Clump). The original name of the pub, ‘The Clump’ comes from an old earthwork.


Local Schools

The closest schools are ‘North Baddesley Infant and Junior School’ and ‘Mountbatten Secondary School’. Both of these are only a short drive away.
