Lumley Road is a semi-rural lane running alongside Peter Pond, a natural wildlife habitat and conservation area, within walking distance of the thriving village of Emsworth, with day to day shopping, easy access to the foreshore and train station. At its northern end it becomes Mill Lane and bridges the countryside between Emsworth and Westbourne. Mill Lane contains just a handful of historic period homes and enjoys a rural feel, yet it remains convenient for both Emsworth village centre and good local transport links. The Cathedral City of Chichester lies approximately 6 miles to the east with the renowned Festival Theatre and comprehensive shopping facilities. The junction with the A27 motorway is approximately one and a half miles to the west, providing access to Portsmouth and Southampton in the west and the aforementioned Chichester and Brighton to the east. London is access via the A3m intersection at Bedhampton. Havant which lies approximately 4 miles away provides a mainline railway station to London Waterloo (70 minute fast service).
