EXPLORE THE SOUTH DOWNS
The farm is set in the South Downs National Park with numerous woodland trails with panoramic views over Petersfield, Steep and Hawkley, waiting to be explored!
Just steps away from your bell tent is the Ashford Hangers Nature Reserve. With its network of walking tracks it holds important historical connections to the 18th Century naturalist Gilbert White and the war time poet Edward Thomas, who’s memorial stone within the hangers offers a commanding view of the South Downs Way with Petersfield lying beneath.
Other local attractions include...

The ancient market town of Petersfield is approximately 3 miles away, with lively town square and weekly markets, also offering mainline train station to further afield destinations such as Portsmouth historical dockyards or the Isle of Wight.
