If you’re looking for somewhere new to set down roots, there are plenty of beautiful towns to choose from across the south, but Petersfield is one of our favourites. A traditional market town nestled in the South Downs, Petersfield is bursting with character – here’s just a few things that make it a wonderful place to call home.
1 – Some of the UK’s most beautiful countryside
From ancient woodland to rolling hills, the South Downs National Park is an idyllic landscape, just one of the fantastic countryside destinations in the south. Walk, cycle, horse ride or take part in a variety of community activities.
Queen Elizabeth Country Park also lies just 15 minutes’ drive away^, offering 20 miles of woodland trails, play areas and a café for when you need to top up your energy!
One thing’s for sure, you’ll never have a dull weekend with so much to explore.
2 – Complete commuter convenience
Despite its rural location, Petersfield benefits from excellent transport links by both rail and road. No matter whether you’re travelling to Guildford, Portsmouth or London, you’re in the ideal location to get there in good time.
3 – Outstanding schools
If you’ll be moving with little ones in tow, or looking to grow your family in the future, you can be rest assured that Petersfield will give you a great choice when it comes to education. For primary years, Herne Junior School and Sheet Primary School are both named “Good” by Ofsted. The Petersfield School and Petersfield Infant School boast an “Outstanding” status.
