Local Information

Leisure Facilities

A community in its own right, King Edward VII Estate offers all the leisure facilities required for modern day living, conveniently located right on residents’ doorsteps.

The exclusive and luxurious swimming pool will have its own changing facilities, a sauna, steam room and large circular Jacuzzi. The residents’ private gym will offer work out and resistance equipment and there will also be a new tennis court adjacent to Lords Common.* The restored Gertrude Jekyll Gardens and, in the wider Estate, signposted measured walks will offer the opportunity for residents to enjoy the fresh air. To the west of the main sanatorium, the fantastic Grade II* Listed chapel takes its place at the heart of the King Edward VII Estate community, with plans for a café/shop and function suite. For convenience, a concierge service and a Haslemere station shuttle service* will be available.



    The Perfect Location for Walking

    The South Downs Way is one of 15 National Trails in England and Wales and the only one to lie entirely within a National Park. The 160 kilometre (100 mile) long trail follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs, from the historic city of Winchester, the first capital of England, to the seaside town of Eastbourne. The undulating route allows walkers, cyclists and horse riders to get away from it all, whether planning an interesting day trip or a longer trek.

    If you are looking for attractive wildlife, historic interest, fine pubs and pretty villages, or if you just fancy a challenge, the South Downs Way awaits you - it is literally on the doorstep of King Edward VII Estate.

    In the South Downs, the National Trust cares for over 6,000 hectares of countryside with a huge variety
    of habitats - chalk grassland, ancient woodland, lowland heath and tiny fragments of chalk heath.
  • Local Shopping

    Shopping or sightseeing, you will be spoilt for choice in Haslemere, Midhurst or Chichester. These are just some of the fascinating market towns within easy reach of King Edward VII Estate.

    Heavenly Haslemere is a quaint and charming market town, steeped in history and the perfect place to shop, dine or stay a while and explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. You could start your day with a coffee - and perhaps a cake or a croissant - at one of Haslemere’s delightful cafés.

    Midhurst offers a wide range of attractions to appeal to visitors of all ages, just three miles from King Edward VII Estate. Home of English polo, an electrifying and glamorous sport, matches are played at Cowdray Park every week from April through to September. The Cowdray Estate also offers a host of other quintessentially English outdoor pursuits and a wonderful Estate farmshop and café.

    For those who love art and architecture, West Sussex teems with reminders of days gone by. The Cathedral City of Chichester is charming and a real historical ‘gem’. Rich in architectural history, it remains one of the country’s best preserved Georgian cities with broad shopping streets arranged in a traditional ‘cross’ formation with north, south, east and west streets meeting at the medieval
    Market Cross which dates back to 1501.

    Transport Links

    With such beautiful parkland surroundings, you could be forgiven for thinking King Edward VII Estate may be off the beaten track.

    In fact nothing could be further from the truth, as it is well connected by road and rail to both national networks. Indeed for rail commuters to London or Portsmouth, a journey time well under an hour from Haslemere is a small price to pay for living in such an historic and beautiful sylvan setting.


    The nearest rail station is Haslemere, 6 miles to the north, on the London Waterloo to Portsmouth line. The journey to Waterloo via Guildford takes approximately 52 minutes, with up to four trains an hour. Up to three trains an hour take you to Portsmouth in approximately 47 minutes.*

    BY CAR

    King Edward VII Estate enjoys excellent transport links. The A286 runs through the town, north to Haslemere and south towards Chichester. The A272 provides westward links with Petersfield and the A3, with Billingshurst in the east. The South Downs has discovered a new lease of life with the opening of the Hindhead Tunnel on the A3, completed in 2011, which has transformed Hindhead into the gateway to the south. An investment of £37 million has made the villages on the A3 much more accessible and easy for those commuting on the A3 north towards London or south towards Emsworth and Portsmouth. Portsmouth, 26 miles away, is home to a European ferry terminal and the Isle of Wight ferry services.


    Heathrow airport is 42 miles and Gatwick airport is 39 miles via the A3 and M25.
