Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Upper House, Nr Petersfield, Hampshire, sleeps 16 in 6 bedrooms.
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.
It sits high on the Hampshire Downs and is the perfect place for a quiet and chilled out weekend - relaxing, chatting, cooking and enjoying the view across 5 acres of fields and gardens. If sitting around isn't your thing - it's also great for outdoor activities with superb 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 a camping adventure or a laid back dinner in unusual surroundings.
The kitchen is the hub of the house - its super-efficient workflow a blessing for enthusiasts and cooks whether it's dining in the evening for grown-ups or making pancakes in the morning with the kids. If you prefer to be pampered - there’s also a ready supply of talented caterers who can come in to do breakfast, lunch and dinner, leaving you free to lounge by any of the 3 open fires.
Outside the kitchen is a brick terrace, with bbq and a polished concrete dining table.
Inside - the main reception area is an impressive drawing room with double height ceiling supported by ancient pitch pine beams with an open fire at one end, a plasma TV at the other and a mezzanine above.
