The Experience

You won’t need to stand on ceremony here, Philippa and Bill are old hands at looking after guests in their lovely home just an hour from London. You breakfast in the dining room or out on the terrace on sunny days: sausages and bacon from the local butchers, eggs from ducks and chickens on the estate, homemade jams and marmalade, fresh fruit from the walled garden; apples, plums, pears and soft fruits in season.

Very traditional and comfortable bedrooms have fresh flowers and lovely views; bathrooms have proper baths. You’re welcome to wander the gardens: mature trees, herbaceous borders, smooth lawns and lovely old walls tumble out into open farmland and then the South Downs National Park for walks and cycling.

You can walk to the village one mile away and also to some good pubs. Petersfield is just 4.5 miles and has shops and restaurants, a lake, a physic garden, an open air swimming pool and places to hire bikes.

Lovely stay at this beautiful house, made to feel very welcome and relaxed from the start and Philippa's hospitality was great. Our son loved playing with the (very friendly) dogs, we enjoyed the breakfasts and went for several wonderful walks. A highlight is the 40 minute walk to the George pub where you have incredible views across the countryside before entering a picture perfect village through the churchyard and then excellent food. Highly recommended !

Colin, London

Our little family (husband, 9 year old and I) had a wonderful, relaxing two nights at Bereleigh. The house is fascinating with all its little touches and memorabilia and the grounds are stunning. Phillipa was a most gracious hostess who never failed to ask if we had everything we needed, refilled our teas and milk and gave us impeccable directions to nearly pubs and walks. The rooms were spotlessly clean and airy with a view to kill. Breakfast was delicious with locally produced sausages, served in a grand dining room. We made many memories!

Urvashi, Milton Keynes

Lovely to step back in time here and enjoy a more gracious way of life. This is a perfect spot for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.

The neighbourhood

The house sits quietly in the Meon Valley and within the National Park. There are many birds in the garden so don't forget your binoculars. It's a half hour drive from Winchester for cathedral, shops, restaurants and great pubs. There are also some lovely walks along the river from the town centre. The nearest NT house is Uppark, which is half an hour away and has superb gardens.

Local points of interest from Philippa & Bill Tyrwhitt-Drake

  • East Meon's beautiful church dates back to to Norman times. The village has two pubs - The Izaak Walton is a real 'local' serving great beers and food and Ye Olde George has an excellent restaurant.
  • West Meon is the resting place of Thomas Lord - founder of Lord's cricket ground and the pub is named in his memory. Also and wonderful place for lunch or dinner.
  • The extensive gardens provide the perfect setting to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet and the magnificent views over the Meon Valley
  • Petersfield is 4 miles away and has a great market on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a Farmers Market on the first Sunday of each month. There is a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.
  • We are 11 miles from Winchester - a beautiful city with the Cathedral, College and interesting shops and famous restaurants.
  • Bereleigh is a working estate which is mainly arable with a beef herd. It is also home to Cedar Valley glamping and camping and during the summer months the pizza oven will be working on Friday and Saturday nights for guests to enjoy.
