We don’t have a car. Can we come to the yurts by train?
Yes – to Petersfield Station. We also advise the quick walk from the station to Waitrose or Tesco Express to stock up on provisions before your taxi collects you. Petersfield Taxis are 01730- 30 30 30.
What exactly is “glamping”?
Glamping is essentially the provision of a setting for your outdoor holiday. Rather than pitching a tent. Your yurt or cabin made of all natural materials on a deck. Cast iron kitchen and bbq equipment is provided, including cutlery, plates and glasses. If you don’t want to cook there are breakfast hampers and evening stews and even catering for al fresco lunches. Therefore you can focus on enjoying yourselves. Each yurt has a made up double-bed with a wood-burner and lovely kelims and cushions. Long-drop privies, food prep areas with running water, out-door and in-door hot showers are provided. Even one bathtub at Willow Yurt. There is no electricity on site. Light fires in your wood-burner and build a campfire outside in your fire bowl. Gather kindling to fire up the storm kettle. It’s all here ready and waiting for you.
What is so special about glamping at Adhurst?
We are one of the only sites in the country to allow dogs and camp fires. There is the possibility to fly-fish here in a solitary manner in an un-stocked totally natural chalk stream. One hour from London. Some of the finest pubs in the country on your yurt-step. Walk to a pick-your-own farm – on free-draining sandy soil; therefore no mud! You are in a rare ancient woodland in hundreds of acres of completely private land with no public footpaths – and you are in the South Downs National Park too. And there’s a tennis court. We will provide hot breakfast hampers and stew upon arrival as extras.

Do you have any homes/spaces to let? What about grazing licences?
Yes, they periodically become available at both Adhurst Farm and Westmark Farm. Send us an email.
Do you have work and office spaces available?
Yes we do. We have a yet-to-be renovated period barn at Westmark Farm which will be renovated once a potential tenant expresses interest.
Do you allow for location filming and photo shoots?
Yes, we have appeared in editorial photo shoots and films and music videos and commercials. Adhurst Woods appeared in Brides, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s magazines amongst others. Adhurst St Mary has appeared in television dramas and pop videos.

Who can use the tennis court?
Only estate tenants and yurt guests
Can we buy wood from Adhurst?
