Large Group Rental Information
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Upper House, Nr Petersfield, Hampshire, Sleeps 16 with 7 bedrooms.

Upper House sits high on the Hampshire Downs and is the perfect place to relax, entertain or enjoy an active, outdoor holiday with family or friends.

There's grazing for horses, storage for bikes, and great access to the South Downs Way or the Queen Elizabeth Country Park for walking, cycling or horse riding. In the garden there's also a fabulous Mongolian yurt (available in the summer for a small extra charge) great for chilling out or luxury camping.

Less than an hour from London, Upper House is one of 2 adjoining rental properties, originally built as a rural escape from the owners’ busy London life. Everything is focused on entertaining; the layout of the rooms, the efficiency of the kitchen and the setting of the terrace with views to The South Downs across 5 acres of fields and gardens.

The kitchen is the hub; its super-efficient workflow a blessing for enthusiasts and cooks, be it fine dining for grown-ups or making pancakes with the kids.

There’s also a ready supply of talented caterers, if you'd rather lounge by any of the 3 open fires.

Outside is a brick terrace, with a polished concrete dining table - great for bbq’s, dinner or cocktails as the sun dips below the horizon to the west.

Inside the Drawing Room, a double height ceiling is supported by ancient pitch pine beams with an open fire at one end, a plasma TV at the other and a mezzanine above.

The 5 bedrooms, a library and a mezzanine sleep up to 16. They’re flexible and stylish with a good mix of sizes to suit all groups.

Outside, it’s a 30 min walk to the western section of the South Downs Way and miles of bridleways, or 15 mins by mountain bike to the new trails at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park.

20 mins by car, on traffic-free backroads, is Glorious Goodwood, The Goodwood Revival or The Festival of Speed. There’s sailing, surfing & paddle boarding at Langstone Harbour, Hayling Island or Wittering. Finally, trips to Cowes on the IOW or to GO APE at Alice Holt Fores
