This charming, historic, Victorian property forms a wing of the owner’s country house and enjoys a splendid, landscaped, enclosed walled garden overlooking the old water tower – a wonderful place to sit out and dine al fresco, or to enjoy an aperitif on the warm balmy nights! Steeped in history, this lovely flint built dwelling was originally commissioned for Sir William Pink, Mayor of Portsmouth, in 1889. Inside, this homely cottage provides a welcoming and comfortable base for exploring the area.
Shrover Hall enjoys a peaceful, rural location overlooking fields where cattle graze, and lies on the outskirts of Denmead which is about 2 miles away, with pubs and local shops. Within easy reach is the market town of Petersfield with trains to London or to the south coast.
