For more sophisticated dining and designer shopping, the spectacular Gunwharf Quays is around 20 minutes away, while the market town of Petersfield boasts an eclectic selection of boutiques.

With a more relaxed attitude to life, there’s a real sense of community here, with numerous clubs and societies to join. Football, cricket, tennis, badminton and bowls are all popular, while Rowlands Castle Golf Club offers magnificent fairways and an inviting clubhouse. And of course, walking, cycling and horse-riding are common pursuits for all, offering endless opportunities to explore the great outdoors.
