Brick and flint cottage, surrounded by countryside, a peaceful and romantic retreat for two, Jane Austens’ House easily reached.

Located in a breathtaking setting, completely enveloped in the rolling countryside which is has wildlife in abundance, this attractive, brick and flint holiday cottage makes a romantic and peaceful retreat, ideal for couples and walkers. As the name suggests, Drovers Cottage was formerly a place of rest for drovers (modern day livestock transporters), who travelled hundreds and hundreds of miles with their animals and needed somewhere to rest. The group of fir trees, which still remain to this day, were an easily recognisable landmark even from afar. The fields surrounding the cottage are of archaeological interest, as they were used as Roman camps and often oyster shells can be found, these were brought in barrels from the coast for the Roman warriors to eat, and they tossed the shells into the fields.

Having been totally renovated, Drovers Cottage offers tasteful and well-presented accommodation, and is within easy walking distance to the quaint thatched-roof village, with its shop, beautiful church and two pubs serving good food. This picturesque village is steeped in history, it has a bronze burial in the parish, which dates back to 2000BC. The village was part of the Royal Manor, belonging first to King Alfred the Great, then later William the Conqueror, which is recorded in the Domesday Book.
Within easy reach are the South Downs, Portsmouth, Winchester Cathedral, Southampton with its maritime history, the New Forest, Chichester, beaches at the Witterings or Hayling Island, the Watercress steam train, Jane Austen’s house, Gilbert White’s house and Birdworld. London is just an hour by train from nearby Petersfield. Seasonal fishing available in a small lake close by. Shops ¼ mile.

    Drovers Cottage is in my opinion an outstanding cottage. The location is perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday. With amazing views and walks, the village is a 5 minute walk away where you can enjoy excellent food in the choice of two pubs. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. There are even binoculars provided to view the wildlife in the area. I would definitely recommend this cottage, as soon as we got home I booked this cottage again for next year, can't wait to return

    A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. We have stayed a lot of cottages, although a lot of them are very good, there is always something missing or doesn't quite fit the distribution given, but Drovers cottage was perfect, clean and well equipped. Amazing walks from the front door for us and the dog. There were shops close to hand but also further a field if you wanted more. The welcome tray was much appreciated. They owners make themselves known to you in case you need them and then let you get on with your stay. If you want amazing country views from a quite relaxing cottage then this is the place to be.
