“This is simply one of the nicest places you could possibly choose in the country, and that’s not just us saying it. Petersfield often pops up in the press on lists of the best places to live and work, and was recently voted one of the top 10 most desirable market towns in England. The Guardian newspaper went so far as to describe Petersfield as “a commuter’s Nirvana, the urban equivalent of a foot rub and a G&T”.
One of the major attractions for families is the choice of world class schools nearby. The Petersfield School is rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and Bohunt School at nearby Liphook is one of the top performing state schools in the country. In the private sector, Churcher’s College is located in the town, as is Bedales, whilst just to the southeast is Ditcham Park School.
The town also offers a cosmopolitan range of shops, restaurants and cafés, with most major retailers represented including Tesco, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose. The Petersfield Market is held twice a week (Wednesdays and Saturdays) in The Square, and a Hampshire Farmer’s Market on the first Sunday of every month,
We also have many sports facilities, including South Petersfield Golf Club (a 12 hole ‘pay and play’ course), Petersfield Golf Club (a members’ club that welcomes visitors), the Taro Leisure Centre for swimming and fitness classes and the Petersfield Open Air Swimming Pool which, despite being open to the elements, is heated to an average 27 degrees C.
But what really sets Petersfield apart is the beautiful countryside and attractive villages all around. These include Selborne Village with its post office, primary school and choice of two pubs; Steep Village, which sits on wooded slopes known as The Hangers and was once home to Sir Alec Guinness; Buriton Village, which sits between Petersfield and the Queen Elizabeth Country Park (making it popular with walkers) and Rogate and Rake to the east which are situated lower down in the Rother Valley.
If you are looking for a combination of chocolate box perfection and modern facilities, look at Petersfield. And when you do, the Henry Adams team will be delighted to help you find your dream home.”
