The space

The Pottery Shed is a delightful self-catering studio that is ideal for overnight stops in the area, a weekend get away for hiking and biking, and longer-term stays for professionals on short-term contracts. We are located at the base of the Ashford Hangers National Nature Reserve. The location offers excellent hiking and walking, cycling and direct one hour train journey to London Waterloo.

This studio is newly equipped with cooker, washer and refridgerator, as well as full kitchen, bedding, plus extras to make it feel like home. There is a separate bath with shower and hallway entry with lots of space for coats, boots, etc. It is located in an exceptionally well built modern house, so is particularly warm and bright - nice on wet cold weather days.

The studio flat has a separate entrance with key. There is also a private drive and easy taxi service from the train station.

The hosts are two writers and therefore home most of the time, and very happy to help make the stay as pleasant as possible. We're happy to provide any information on the area, and help brainstorm if you want to knock on the door.

We sit at the base of the Ashford Hangers National Nature Reserve, part of the South Down National Park. There are stunning walks through ancient forest, clear water streams and deep escarpments. In addition, this fantastic bicycling country - both on road and off-road. The South Downs sit 8 miles away with spectacular views, as well Hayling and other ocean islands including the Isle of Wight. The historic market town of Petersfield is 1.5 miles away (5 minutes by car) with plenty of stores and restaurants. Meanwhile, for a night out, London is one hour direct up the track - get on the train and off at Waterloo Station on the South Bank.

We are 1.5 miles from Petersfield, a nice walk down a wooded path or a zoom down the hill on a bike. We also have a private drive. 4 mins to train station.

This studio is exceptionally positioned from stunning walks outside the door - the poet Edward Thomas country - right off the Hangers Way which joins the South Downs (URL HIDDEN) Down the road is the historic Harrow Pub (URL HIDDEN) and at the other end The Cricketers Inn. We are also positioned 200 yards from the stunning Bedales School campus which offers regular Drama, Music, Art, and Speakers events.

Guest access

Private entry to the space from the side of the house.

Interaction with guests

We are always eager to help in anyway we can, but the separate entrance means you'll usually only see us if you chose to knock on the door.

Debora was a brilliant host, the flat was great and area beautiful. Really enjoyed our stay and we could not have felt more welcome.

A lovely place for a short break to explore Petersfield and the wonderful walking scenery nearby. Warm and helpful welcome from our host, and a private studio with lots of little extras to set us up for breakfast and teatime snacks. Good wi-fi, parking just off the road. Comfortable bed, good shower and everything you need to enjoy a short break.

The Potting Shed is really warm and cosy. It's really clean and Debora leaves lovely little touches. Plus they are willing to help you with local places to eat etc. A lovely little stopover

Amazing little place! Deb was so nice and we literally did everything she suggested. Great for bike riding and walking, couldn't recommend it highly enough. Beautiful German Shepard too, I'm sure Deb will let you meet him.

My husband and I are both writers (of books and articles) and you are as likely to hear from one of us as the other. We have two older children and have always been a family that plays together. Thomas is British, I am American so we have lived both in the US, in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia 60 miles outside of Washington DC, and now in the South Downs National Park in Hampshire - 60 miles from London.

An evening is not complete without a great conversation and our friends. Being an hour away from London, we like to take advantage of what the City has to offer in terms of theatre and art exhibitions.

We are avid walkers, and nature enthusiasts as well as culture lovers. We seek out National Parks wherever we go for lifestyle as well as vacation.

We're very easy, come with British manners, American friendliness, but our own style of warmth.
