Mallards is a very good place to be, with a beautiful garden and nice walkings in the surrounding

"Mallards is a nice, comfortable house with plenty of room for two. You may sit and walk in the beautiful garden of the owners. The nice place Petersfield is very easy to reach and there are several nice walks you can do in the surroundings, directly from home. Also the South Downs Way is not far away, so you can walk a part of this trail. "

Very Comfortable

"We had a lovely stay. Paula was very friendly and welcoming. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, in a beautiful area. The bed was a little harder than we are used to, but still comfy. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and private. "

Other Reviews

“Lovely accommodation, friendly welcoming hosts, lovely little touches like milk and margarine in the fridge, eggs and bread. Would recommend this property to everyone.”

J Bowman
“We found The Mallards a lovely quiet and relaxing place to stay. With hosts that were about if needed. Hosts were really helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Accommodation was lovely and clean and with everything you need to make a nice relaxing stay. You are welcome to sit any were in garden looking out over the ponds watching the ducks. The area is very close to the tourist attractions in the area ie: Portsmouth, Winchester etc, were there is plenty to see and do.”

M Gair
The owner was very welcoming and friendly and the property was clean and well-equipped. We felt very comfortable here.
L. Simpson
"Mallards is a lovely little ground floor apartment, adjoining the Owners' property. The Owners could not have been more helpful, and they have obviously gone to some effort in creating and maintaining a high standard to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. It is peaceful and yet within easy reach of major attractions. A perfect base for us to explore the area, or simply stay 'home' and relax."
Mr P. T.
"Excellent holiday let, with friendly and generous hosts. Good locations with walks close by and only a short drive to the coast."
I. Shorter

This beautifully appointed holiday accommodation for two is perfect for anyone wanting to walk the Hampshire Hangers and enjoy exploring the East Hampshire Downs.

Yes there are Mallard ducks on the pond within the owners' garden, so it's apt to name this very nicely appointed annexe, 'Mallards'. This ground floor accommodation is bright and spacious. The setting is in one of the prettiest areas of East Hampshire, and the location means you can also reach Portsmouth, Winchester and Chichester with relative ease.

The annexe has a large and contemporary styled living room with a bright and well equipped kitchen off it. The bedroom has a king sized bed and again is very nicely presented. A shower room off the hall is fitted with an automatic power shower. Outside there is private outside space on a small terrace.

Steep Marsh and beyond

Steep Marsh is on the edge of the Hampshire Hangers, one of Hampshire’s most beautiful woodland areas. Consisting of 323 acres of woodland, with many magnificent beech trees. There is a rise and fall in the landscape here made the more impressive by the fact most the area is covered in trees. The scenery is outstanding and has been given the name “Little Switzerland” to this part of Hampshire.

Being amidst such beautiful scenery, Mallards falls comfortably within the South Downs National Park. It is just two miles from the historic market town of Petersfield. As the main junction between London to Portsmouth ,and Midhurst to Winchester the town enjoyed a brisk trade in coaching days and in 1696-97 had no fewer than nine coaching inns listed. There are certainly no shortage of country inns in the vicinity today and many fine restaurants!

Immediately to the south of Petersfield, Butser Hill at 270 metres (890 feet) is the highest point on the South Downs. The climb to the top is challenging but the views are rewarding and there is a refreshment kiosk at the top! It forms part of the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Hampshire’s biggest country park offering 20 miles of trails for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. It is a popular recreational area. We feature a link to the park under our section “Places to visit” for East Hampshire from our homepage.
