Fabulous place to walk on the South Downs. You can walk for 30 minutes or so, or for hours! You'll get beautiful views from the top of the hill across Petersfield and to the sea (if not too cloudy!) There is also a handy cafe by the car park and visitors centre.

Food Scene

Great food and excellent cocktail bar. Four London Road has a fantastic array of cocktails, gins and runs, as well as a great tapas menu and tasty pizza's. We go here for both a casual night out as well as romantic dinners. Only 1 mile from us, so an easy 20 minute stroll.

Coffee shop by day with fabulous selection of cakes, and a relaxed bar by evening. In the evening they serve alcoholic drinks, cocktails, and even delicious milkshakes, as well as a small but tasty selection of sharer platters. They even allow dogs, which is always a win in my eyes!

A great independently run garden centre with some lovely gift ideas. Key dell is particularly great at Halloween and Christmas as they go all out with themed walks and displays. The coffee shop also does fantastic cakes with various (and delicious) vegan options!
