The Cottage at Prior's Dean

Petersfield, Hampshire

A cosy cottage lost to the world in glorious country, a stylish hideaway for those in need of a brief escape from the big smoke


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


You’re off grid, lost in timeless country, with long views shooting down an unblemished valley. The odd tractor potters in the fields, hills rise to ridges crowned with woodland, paths weave through it all, leading, somewhat conveniently, to lovely country pubs. It’s a beautiful spot, the English rural idyll laid out before you, yet surprisingly, you’re only five miles from the A3, making this a very accessible escape. As for the cottage, a homely rustic style runs throughout. You’ll find good books and pretty fabrics in every room, bunk beds that wait behind curtains in the hall, then a small kitchen filled with everything you’ll need. Bedrooms are sprinkled about. One downstairs is good for grannies, one upstairs has a chaise longue at the end of the bed. You’ll find white linen, warm colours, thick blankets, a claw-foot bath. As for the sitting room, it comes with a beamed ceiling, good art, a wood-burner to keep you cosy in winter, then doors that open onto a gravelled terrace, where you can eat in good weather; there’s a covered area with an outside fireplace here too. If you don’t want to cook, spin into Petersfield, for good restaurants; one has a Michelin star. Goodwood, Winchester cathedral and the beach at the Witterings all wait.
