Grass pitches

General

  • Traditional and quiet site in the South Downs National Park
  • Half a mile from the South Downs Way; 20 mins' drive from Winchester
  • Eco-friendly site with firepits provided and bike hire available

Grab your ‘cracking setting’ scoresheet and arm yourself with a pen, for Upper Parsonage Farm is a place that’s likely to win many points indeed.

First up is the category of rural location, and it’s a good tally on that front: the site is part of a traditional 1,400-acre working farm that’s been owned and run by the same family since way back in 1904. Sheep sometimes take up residence next door to the pitching field, and guests are welcome to watch the harvest being brought in from the crop fields if they’re staying at the right time.

It’s not tricky to see why the family have stayed put here for so long, either: you’d be unlikely to move in a hurry if you’d found a spot that’s both within the South Downs National Park and part of the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Getting out to explore such surrounds is straightforward, as the farm is half a mile from the South Downs Way, and the friendly owners can rent bikes and dole out local tips on the best things to see and do.

Next up is handy access – and it’s another strong showing here, with Clanfield’s village shops four miles away, larger Petersfield five miles away and the A3 a 10-minute drive away for more extensive jaunts into the Hampshire countryside or over to Winchester and Portsmouth.

And finally, bonus points can be had for the vibe on site, which is laidback and eco-friendly – it’s carefully managed to protect local plants and wildlife, with a plastic-free ethos, firepits to keep campfires contained, and recycling wherever possible.

    Dolly is lush and the setting is magical. There's actually a very comfy bed rather than just a futon, and there's a little seating area complete with fire pit. Fab! Thank you so much for having us!

    During the day this was quiet

    Disliked: 

    Pitches far too close , this is very misleading from the pictures on the site . This is not a site if you want to go for peace and quiet, at night time this was very loud ! We were so close we had to sit round the side of tent by the ropes just to try and get away from the overcrowded pitches, there was not any space at all !! . The facilities were shocking too, one shower whilst in the same block as the toilet with no hot water whilst washing hands!! .Be aware the owners dog isn't the friendliest if you have a little dog yourself!! We will never return!!!

From the manager...

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your 5 day stay Zoe, had I known you had these issues I would have tried to sort it out for you. Apologies if Lulu wasn't very nice to Chewy, I haven't received a complaint about her before, she sometimes manages to sneak down for food left overs. I will be more attentive with her in the future.

    Absolutely loved our stay at Upper Parsonage Farm. A beautiful rural, quiet location. So nice to be able to have a fire at night.
    Sue is lovely, friendly and wonderfully provided logs for our fires.
    Love the fact that this is a small site with only a few pitches. Toilet, showers and even a little washing-up area.
    Just wonderful
    Thank you. We will be back

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Rural rambles or rides are a must, of course. If you’re not sure where to aim for, perhaps pick either the Butser Hill National Nature Reserve (five minutes’ drive) or Queen Elizabeth Country Park (15 minutes), or set forth on the car-free Meon Valley Trail from Clanfield.

Upper Parsonage Farm may have been in the family for well over a century, but it’s a youngling compared to Butser Ancient Farm (10 minutes), where the archaeological displays go all the way back to the Stone Age, and the activities include ancient skills such as foraging, cooking over fire and building rafts.

Once satisfied that you could survive in days of yore, take in some of the history of intervening centuries with trips to Winchester’s medieval centre (20 minutes), the historic dockyard in Portsmouth (20 minutes) or Jane Austen's House Museum (25 minutes), where the famed novelist penned some of her best-loved books.

Must see

  • Uppark House and Garden (8.5 kilometres)
  • Mid-Hants Railway 'Watercress Line' (16.6 kilometres)
  • Jane Austen's House (17.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Uppark House and Garden (8.1 kilometres)
  • Hinton Ampner (12.7 kilometres)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
