Just 55 minutes from London by train yet in the heart of quintessentially English Hampshire countryside, Dean Farm House is a welcoming 18th century red brick and hand tiled farmhouse ideal for exploring this part of the world. Set within the South Downs National Park in the village of Kilmeston, the house has a lovely mature garden to sit and relax in, is just a mile and a half away from the South Downs Way and a few minutes by car from the market town of Alresford, home of the Watercress Steam Railway. Further afield, you are 15 minutes from Winchester, 40 minutes from the New Forest and 30 and 40 minutes' drive from Southampton and Portsmouth respectively.
What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Dean Farm?
Inside, the house has two doubles and a twin bedroom, all with their own en-suites (we love the cosy patchwork quilts too). All rooms look out to the fields, overlooking the beautiful South facing garden, a scene of rural tranquility. The house is well-appointed and features a warm and relaxing atmosphere with spacious gardens and free Wi-Fi access.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Alresford area?
A pleasant market town, Alresford, is just 4 miles away and is home to the Watercress Steam Railway and a good range of restaurants. The landscape of Hampshire is absolutely stunning, with its many villages to visit, and several walks, including; the Wayfarers Walk that passes by the top of Dean Farm garden and the South Downs Way is just 1,5 miles.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
Breakfast, while not typical English, is extensive and has to be seen to be believed. Complete with a mouth-watering selection of cheese, breads, fruits and yoghurts all laid out on the farmhouse kitchen table.
