This Grade II listed, character cottage, circa 1850, is centrally located along a cobbled street which leads to the church, in the popular historic town of Farnham. Cartef, meaning ’home’ in Welsh, is a terraced holiday property offering cosy and tasteful accommodation. There is an open plan living area on the ground floor, and a bedroom and large bathroom on the first floor.
There is much to see and do in the area, including Frensham Great Pond and Common; Waverley Abbey with England’s first Cistercian Abbey; Hogs Back Brewery Tours; Rural Life Centre; Birdworld and nearby Farnham Maltings, a cultural organisation with theatre and dance productions, pottery, art, textiles and photography. Farnham has a wealth of culture, shops, eateries, a castle and a museum. For further sightseeing, catch the train from either Farnham or nearby Alton to London Waterloo, just an hour away, or to the south coast. Scenic walks can be enjoyed in the South Downs National Park and Alice Holt Forest. Perhaps visit Jane Austen’s House Museum at Chawton and the Gilbert White Museum at Selborne? Chichester, with its ornate cathedral, Festival Theatre, cinema and racecourse, and Portsmouth with its historic dockyard, Spinnaker Tower, Royal Marines Museum, Gunwharf Quays, waterside dining and shopping outlets, are approximately a 50-minute drive away.
The Watercress Line steam railway at Alresford provides a delightful trip stopping off at various stations along the way. Other places well worth a visit include the market town of Petersfield; the Guildhall Wickham Water Meadows and the Science Centre at Winchester; Marwell Zoo; and The Queen Elizabeth Country Park at Horndean, with 1,400 acres of woodland and downland. The beaches at Wittering and Hayling can be reached within an hour, and a day trip to the Isle of Wight from Portsmouth or Southampton should not be missed. Fishing nearby. Beach 30 miles.
