Pristine ancient woodland, flyfishing, circular walk through private woods to two traditional pubs, plus another walk to the pick-your-own-farm. We offer heritage skill workshops, guided birdwalks, basketry skills and coppicework. Adhurst Farm has been in our family since 1858 and is just outside Petersfield, nestled in the South Downs National Park. We are a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and are a haven for endangered species and plants. We are also a farmed tree nursery for Hilliers.
We have five yurts and one cabin. Each space has its own fully-equipped safari kitchen with running water, gas hob, crockery and cast iron cookware, firebowl etc. Even if it rains you can still be undercover outdoors – by your firebowl and with blankets over your legs. And inside the yurts is a wood burner and a fully made up double iron bedstead – with down duvets, all cotton sheets and only pure wool blankets. Dogs are welcome and all our pubs accept dogs.
Our guests are mainly 35 years old and up and the children who stay at Adhurst are generally 12 and under. It’s peaceful. There is no electricity, just ambiant solar lights and candles. Cars can drive up to the spaces to unload and then repark elsewhere on the farm. We don’t suffer from light pollution so star-gazing is good at Adhurst. And birdwatching too! We only take bookings direct so you won’t find us on booking engines. In this way we are in direct contact with each of our guests and so can ensure your stay goes exactly as you planned it!
