Netley, sometimes called Netley Abbey, is a village on the south coast of Hampshire, England, situated close to the city of Southampton. It is flanked on the one side by the ruins of Netley Abbey and on the other by the Royal Victoria Country Park, which is the site of the old Netley Hospital; built after the Crimean War, and used extensively from 1863 through to World War II.

The village runs along the length of the shore of Southampton Water, and looks across to Hythe and Calshot. Netley has a small-community feel. There are two schools linked to each other, called Netley Abbey Infant School and Netley Abbey Junior School and there is a nearby church called St. Edwards. Netley has its own railway station with hourly services between Southampton and Portsmouth.

Netley is also considered as the most haunted village in Hampshire with the Abbey, the Chapel and Ingleside farm are all said to have resident ghosts.
