In and around the village of Broughton

Look out for the beautiful Broughton Water Buffalo grazing on the chalk downlands above Manor Farm. The farm shop is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturday mornings.

Stockbridge, heart of the Test Valley and home of the exclusive Houghton Fishing Club, features a wide street full of pubs, shops and good restaurants. The river passes under the street in five channels.

Mottisfont Abbey (NT) set on the River Test was once a medieval priory. The grounds and the setting on the river are exquisite. Look out for the most astonishing spring you have ever seen. In summertime don't miss seeing the National Rose Collection in the walled garden.

In Nether Wallop St Andrew's church is famous for its ancient wall paintings. Nearby is the important iron age hill fort of Danebury Ring which is easily spotted from the top of Broughton Down. Danebury Vineyard is near to the site of the fabled old Stockbridge Racecourse.

A popular cycle ride is down the valley to Horsebridge, once a halt on the 'Sprat and Winkle' railway. At the Old Station you can get Afternoon Tea at weekends during the month of May. Pass the entrance to Bossington House and ride into the village of Houghton.

Of interest to all ages, the Museum of Army Flying, Middle Wallop houses a unique collection of historic helicopters, light aircraft and gliders. Our younger guests head for the New Forest and on the way call in at Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park.
