farmscape - STEEP NR PETERSFIELD
Locket’s Farm is a fabulous small-holding in the village of Steep, near Petersfield. Set over 6 acres in the heart of the South Downs National Park, surrounded by glorious countryside. It is a large but cosy cottage with a huge entertaining space complete with an aga and wood-burning stove.
In the barn is an exercise pool for those wishing to soak away their stresses and stains. Wonderful walks in the Hampshire Hangers start straight outside the front door and terrific local pubs offer good beer and delicious meals.
Pet and groom the friendly donkeys, pygmy goats, mini pigs and sheep and collect fresh eggs from the chickens and ducks, but beware, the naughty mini-pigs like to escape into the garden and come and say hello! Build a camp up by the shepherd’s hut, star-gaze around fire pit or just enjoy the table football, croquet, trampoline and 40m zip wire. It truly is a perfect family escape.
The cottage can accommodate up to ten guests with its seven bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The cottage: master bedroom with super king bed and ensuite shower room; | two double bedrooms that share an ensuite shower room | twin/super king bedroom with two guest beds and an ensuite shower room | family bathroom.
Two Shepherds Huts: provide extra accommodation in the summer months.
The open plan kitchen/ living/dining area is fantastic for entertaining and there is a separate sitting room & study. There are plenty of toys for children of all ages.
'Lockets farm is absolutely amazing. Lucy was a fantastic host and made us feel really welcome. We really appreciated the welcome basket with fresh eggs, milk and bread. The house was immaculate and the garden and farm were beautiful. The kids loved the animals and trampoline, and the pool was an added bonus. We could not recommend highly enough!'
'Locket's farm is amazing. So much to see and do at the house whatever age you are. The animals were friendly particularly the piglets who loved having their tummies rubbed. The zip wire and pool were popular too. Very comfortable well-equipped house with plenty of space for a large group of people. A perfect weekend break. Thank you Lucy for making our stay so enjoyable.'
