Escape to Downlands Farm in the scenic South Downs National Park for a relaxing rural retreat break. The farm sits on a green-lane close to miles of footpaths, bridleways and on and off-road cycling. There are 3 welcoming pubs within a half hour's walk of the farm or a 3 minute car journey.
Set in unspoilt countryside, Downlands Farm is a great place to relax and unwind in a tranquil rural location. Close by though is the pretty market town of Petersfield , just 10 minute's drive from the farm and the larger, cathedral cities of Chichester, Guildford, Portsmouth and Winchester are all within a 45 minute drive. For those keen to enjoy time by the seaside, the farm is within an hourís drive of one of the best Blue Flag beaches in the country; West Wittering, and the shingle beach at Hayling Island where there is also a funfair for the children.
Edward's Cottage is one of just three beautiful self-catering barns on our farm. Dogs are welcome by arrangement.
Offering light and airy accommodation, there are two ground floor bedrooms (one master bedroom with a double bed and ensuite bathroom and one double bedroom), as well as an upstairs family bedroom with a king size bed and two single beds (this room has a slightly lower ceiling and is reached via stairs from the living area).
The living space is open plan (often preferred for sociable holidays) and features a comfortable lounge area with smart TV and a well equipped kitchen/diner, as well as French doors that open out to the garden and patio area. The utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a shower room with WC on the ground floor. The barn benefits from free Wifi access.
All three holiday houses are situated on a working farm and next door to horse stables, the interiors of each property are just beautiful, but guests should be aware that the exterior is still rustic. This does not detract from the overall glorious setting.
