Location

Froxfield, England, United Kingdom

The Old Rectory is in the heart of High Cross, which is one of three rural hamlets that comprise Froxfield, one of the most unspoilt (and high) villages in Hampshire, with no less than 40 miles of lanes and countless walking, biking, as well as bridle routes. We are located within the South Downs National Park and close to the Hangers way, a 21-mile walk from Alton to Queen Elizabeth Country Park.

We are just five minutes by car from Bedales School.

There are excellent pubs close by, the Pub with No Name within a couple of miles; the Harrow, which regularly features in the UK's most unspoilt pubs, within four miles, where we have been drinking for over 30 years; and the Hawkley Inn with its excellent food (and takeaway menu).

Petersfield, 4 miles away, has a wide variety of shops (including a butcher specialising in Angus beef), restaurants (including Malabon, which also has an excellent takeaway menu), and a monthly farmers market.

The A3, 4 miles away, allows you to get to Portsmouth, the birthplace of Charles Dickens (the owner's great-great-grandfather) within half an hour and is home to the historic dockyard and HMS Victory. And Jane Austen's house at Chawton is just 10 minutes away whilst the naturalist Gilbert White's house is located 15 minutes away in Selborne.
We are also within half an hour of two of England's most historic cathedral cities, Winchester and Chichester.

For children, we are about 15 minutes from the famous watercress steam train line at Alresford and the Butser Ancient Farm. They will love hiring boats on the lake on the Heath in Petersfield. The beautiful sandy beach at West Wittering is 40 minutes away.
