Titchfield village dates back to the 6th Century and is a charming local village with a range of amenities: a hotel, two pubs, several hairdressers, a range of independent shops plus a couple of small convenience stores and a doctors surgery.
St Peter’s Church (c.680AD), located in the village alongside the river Meon is one of the oldest churches in England. Other impressive places of interest nearby include Titchfield Abbey and The Great Barn.
Titchfield Mill (above) dates back to 1779 and is now a country pub with rural charm and rustic character while The Fisherman’s Rest is in an idyllic location right by the Abbey with the river meandering through the garden. Both pubs are less than a mile from Friary Meadow and will be easily reached from the eastern access point through country paths down to Mill Lane.
Titchfield Abbey (below), first built in the 13th century, was once home to a community of canons who lived like monks, but also preached and served as priests in the local community. Henry VIII later gave the Abbey to the Earl of Southampton, who transformed it into a grand Tudor mansion called Place House with an impressive grand turreted gatehouse.
Right on the doorstep, the Holiday Inn features a bar, restaurant, swimming pool and well-equipped health club and to the north of the site is the magnificent Great Barn, dating from the 13th Century and now home to the Titchfield Festival Theatre one of the UK’s largest amateur theatre groups hosting multiple productions running all year round.
The walk to Mill Lane takes you past lakes offering quality fishing (mainly carp, bream, tench and perch) in picturesque and safe surroundings. For anglers buying at Friary Meadow we’ll even include your first year’s membership of the Portsmouth and District Angling Society.
