Just the accommodation we were looking for; and friendly and helpful hosts
"We (two adults and one toddler) were all delighted with this accommodation. Inside, the cottage was clean, quiet, and comfortable, with all the amenities that we needed. Outside: a lovely garden space, direct and easy access to countryside walks and pubs, and a farmyard setting which particularly fascinated our little boy. The hosts were welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to others, and very much hope that we will have the chance to return."

Found in the quiet hamlet of Steep Marsh, Taylors Copse Cottage enjoys its own private setting in the heart of beautiful bluebell woodland, at the foot of the renowned Hampshire Hangers. In the spring it is understandably a wonderful carpet of colour, and guests can enjoy the many walks that lead through these private woods.
This is a perfect place to stay for anyone with a young family, since it is also a small holding with new born lambs and piglets each spring plus also, horses are kept in the adjacent stables and are exercised each day.
The cottage is perfectly in keeping with its surroundings, and offers very comfortable accommodation for five in two bedrooms. The second bedroom with three single beds is exceptionally spacious and the cottage can if need be accommodate six through use of a futon that is provided in that room. The main double bedroom is on the ground floor, but is on a slightly lower level and since it is accessed via a few stairs from the hallway, it makes a nice feature and gives this cottage a feeling of being that little bit individual.
The central living room has comfortable leather sofas and a feature wood burning stove. Doors open out onto the terrace and the garden beyond. The kitchen is spacious with good dining space and is fully equipped.
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, the cottage falls comfortably within the South Downs National Park. It is just two miles from the historic market town of Petersfield and its leisure facilities. 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!
Butser Hill at 270 metres (890 feet) is the highest point on the South Downs. It is easily accessible being just a short distance south of the town. 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.
Also listed are Hinton Ampner, and Stansted Park both within easy reach, and across the border into Sussex is the National Trust property Uppark, located high on the Downs at South Harting.
This area is very accessible, Portsmouth’s historic dockyard, the Spinnaker Tower and Gunwharf Quays are within twenty minutes by rail or car, while Winchester and the western end of the South Downs are easily accessible due west from Petersfield.
