Upper House lies in the heart of the South Downs National Park, between Guildford and Portsmouth and is very convenient for the A3. This spacious holiday home was designed as a country retreat from city life. It's only an hour from London, yet the peaceful surroundings and rural views are a world away from the noise and bustle of the capital. You'll love it if you want a relaxing self-catering break with family and friends, enjoying substantial living areas, beautifully landscaped gardens, and space to sleep up to 16 people in six bedrooms and four sofa beds. The house is also perfect for visitors to country weddings as it is three miles from the Petersfield, ten miles from Portsmouth, and 15 miles from Haselmere.
Petersfield is a picturesque Hampshire market town, settled in the 11th Century by the Normans with a church dating back to 1120. The twice-weekly markets (Wednesday and Saturday) and monthly Farmers Market (first Sunday) are the perfect places to buy food and drink for your self-catering stay. There's a good choice of places to dine out when you don't want to cook, two specialist museums, and independent shops. The Petersfield Music Festival takes place over a week in March. The event is one of the oldest of its kind in England, first taking place in 1901.
Upper House is close to beautiful walks like the South Downs Way. The route is multi-purpose and accessible to cyclists and horse riders who use it to explore 105 miles between Winchester and Eastbourne. If you enjoy mountain biking, you'll appreciate being close to the Queen Elizabeth Country Park trails. Both kinds of horsepower are celebrated at Goodwood with horse racing, the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed, and a calendar of other exciting events, including the Goodwood Revival.
There's no need to put off planning your escape with this fantastic holiday home waiting for you. Stunningly beautiful and perfectly peaceful and with no pets or smoking allowed, it's ideal for guests with allergies wanting a tranquil break with family or friends.
