Distance from the South Downs Way: One mile

South Harting is only around a mile from the South Downs Way, although there’s a steep climb through the woods back to the path.

South Harting is situated just off the South Downs Way, 27 miles from Winchester and four miles from the market town of Petersfield. It’s an idyllic downland village, well worth a visit for a lunch or overnight stop. The very distinctive steeple of the village church is clearly visible from Harting Down and the view invites you down from the South Downs Way into the village.

Getting Here & Home Again

By Train & Bus

There is a bus service (number 91/92) connecting South Harting to Petersfield & Midhurst. The closest railway station is in Petersfield, around 4 miles away, with direct trains to London Waterloo (1 hour) and Portsmouth (30 mins).

By Car

South Harting is within a few miles of the A3, providing easy links to South Coast, London and the M25. It is also a similar distance to the A272, which travels from east to west right across East Sussex, West Sussex & Hampshire, and passes through Petersfield, a few miles along the B2146 from South Harting. There is limited on-street parking in the village.


There’s a pub, post office and village store here.
