Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Just a mile from the South Downs Way, a delightful cottage for two on the Sussex Hampshire border.
Situated amongst the most beautiful countryside within the South Downs National Park, New Barn Cottage borders the eastern fringe of the Queen Elizabeth Country Park just to the south of the picturesque village of Buriton. It is a truly peaceful retreat and just ideal for walking and cycling the local lanes, and exploring the footpaths and trails that traverse the park.
One mile north of the cottage, is the South Downs Way which at this point is a mere 17 miles from its western end at Winchester, so easily achievable in one day by keen walkers and cyclists and offering some of the most stunning downland scenery along the way across the whole of the Western Weald..
The cottage is in a truly rural and idyllic setting, nestling against a wooded hillside, known as Hangers in this area of East Hampshire. There is complete tranquility here with just birdsong and the sound of the wind in the trees!
This one bedroom cottage is within the grounds of the owners' home and comes with its own private access. There is also a superb outdoor heated swimming pool that guests may enjoy between the months of May and September. Guests also enjoy their own private patio area behind the cottage and the open lawns to the side of the owner's garden.
The living area is spacious and comfortable for two people and there is a separate well equipped kitchen at the back. The double bedroom works really well in the upstairs roof space, again offering excellent space and there is an ensuite shower room to the rear. These two rooms combine well to make a lovely dual aspect sleeping area.

The Central Southern England region
To the west on the open downland, Butser Hill is the highest point on the South Downs at 271 metres, 889 feet. It offers fantastic panoramic views in particular south towards Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. You can read about the park within our Places to Visit section on our website. In particular it is worth noting the events that occur in the park over the course of the year as they are varied and will be of interest to many.The village of Buriton is just a mile to the north. It has a most pretty main street, boasts a couple of pubs and a village pond set beside the parish church of St Mary. The Hangers Way passes passes right beside the pond.The cottage is well placed for both Uppark and Stansted Park, two stately homes that are within a fifteen minute drive. The two cathedral cities of Chichester and Winchester are also easily accessible, as is Portsmouth and its historic dockyard. There is also an excellent rail link from nearby Petersfield making a day or evening out in London very manageable.
This is the perfect location for walking and cycling. The Queen Elizabeth Country Park is Hampshire's largest country park sited on 1,400 acres of open access woodland and downland within the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty now of course within the South Downs National Park boundary.The woodland was mostly planted in the 1930's and consists mainly of beech trees. The park has over twenty miles of trails which includes the South Downs Way passing through the middle, and the Hangers Way which heads north through Buriton via Petersfield and Selbourne to Alton. There are also many mountain bike tracks in the country park so it caters for all interests.
