The Central Southern England region
Eastfield House Lodge is an ideal base from which to visit a number of places of interest such as:
Highclere Castle (12 miles) or Downton Abbey! Historic property belonging to the Carnarvon family; the 5th Earl of Carnarvon discovered the tomb of the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun in 1922. Open to the public at certain times of the year, please visit www.highclerecastle.co.uk for more details.
Winchester (12 miles) with its cathedral dating back to the 7th century, offering daily services performed by its Choir boys and acting as Jane Austen's last resting place (www.winchester-cathedral.org.uk). Winchester also offers a vast mix of high street as well as independent restaurants and shops and has a lovely Farmers' Market on the second Sunday of the month.
Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton, near Alton is 24 miles away.
Stockbridge (9 miles) is a lovely small town, between Andover and Salisbury, in the Test Valley. Very picturesque, it offers a large choice of independent shops, pubs and restaurants and has the attraction of having the River Test, renowned for its fly-fishing worldwide, flowing across right under the High Street. England's oldest fishing club, Houghton Fishing Club, can be found in the Grosvenor Hotel.
Danebury Hill fort (2 miles from Stockbridge) dates back to the Iron Age and offers a lovely walk with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. More history about the hill fort can be found on www3.hants.gov.uk and in the Iron Age Museum in Andover.
Salisbury (24 miles) also has a spectacular cathedral, but in a very different style. Dating back to the 11th century, its spire, which can be seen from miles around, was added between 1300 and 1320 and is the highest in England today (www.salisburycathedral.org.uk). The city offers numerous high street and independent shops and restaurants.
Stonehenge (25 miles), possibly the most famous pre-historic monument in the world; the site has been recently transformed, to enhance visitors' experience (www.english-heritage.org.uk).
Mottisfont Abbey (17 miles), originally an historical priory, founded in 1201, it became a country estate after being dissolved under the reign of Henry VIII and is now run by the National Trust. The River Test flows in its delightful grounds where walks and picnics can be enjoyed and the beautiful rose garden admired. The house has become a museum and hosts regular art exhibitions. The attractive market town of Romsey with its beautiful Benedictine Abbey dating back to the 12th century, is just a few miles away.
The New Forest is only about an hour's drive away (42-53 miles) and offers numerous attractions such as the Beaulieu Motorsport Museum, Bucklers Hard Museum and the towns of Brockenhurst and Lymington nearby, to name but a few. Ferries to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight can be taken from Lymington Ferry port, offering a lovely relaxing excursion on a sunny day!
Longparish is a very pretty village spread along the River Test, renowned worldwide for its fly-fishing. It features a delightful 13thC church and offers two pubs with restaurants, The Cricketers and The Plough, which has won numerous awards, together with a village shop & Post Office.
A number of lovely walks can be enjoyed over 20 miles of footpaths around Longparish and along the river. For more details, please visit www.longparish.org.uk.
Supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, shops including M&S and hospital (minor injuries only) can be found in nearby Andover (5 miles). Both Winchester (12 miles) and Basingstoke (20 miles) hospitals have an A&E department.
