Petersfield – perfect for access to London and the south coast

The attractive market town of Petersfield is growing in popularity among commuters. Set within an almost hidden position in the South Downs National Park, it provides a relaxing and peaceful haven for those working in London, or in other nearby cities.

Although a tranquil place in which to live, Petersfield has a strong community feel – with a bustling high street, a pleasing mix of shops, as well as traditional, cosy, pubs and restaurants.

Locals and visitors don’t have to look too far to take in some spectacular countryside views – with the South Downs, the Queen Elizabeth Country Park  and Butser Hill to the south, the Hampshire Downs to the west, and the tree-lined hills of Hill Brow and Durford to the north east. The south coast is also within easy reach – offering miles and miles of beautiful beaches.

Petersfield enjoys a busy and cultural scene – with three drama/musical companies, museums, and a number of attractive venues for arts and sports.

The town’s main square plays host to markets, held on Saturdays and Wednesdays, all within the watchful eye of a striking statue of King William III. Also close by is St Peter’s Church – which is historical and beautiful – dating back to 1120 and retaining many of its features.

Surrounded by outstanding countryside, Petersfield boasts excellent road links to London and the south coast, and is the ideal semi-rural retreat.
