Out & About

White Hart is located in the picturesque South Downs village of South Harting, West Sussex, making us an ideal stopover for anyone walking the South Downs Way. We are also near Petersfield and within easy reach of Chichester and Portsmouth.

Just down the road from us, set high on the rolling South Downs, is Uppark, a fine late 17th century National Trust house. Anyone who loves a good period drama will be interested in seeing the contrast in life upstairs and downstairs at Uppark, with a maze of small servants’ quarters below stairs, and the large, grand rooms for the nobility on the ground floor. The prolific English writer H.G. Wells spent some of his early years at Uppark, where his mother, Sarah, was housekeeper.

Those who prefer more adrenalin-fuelled pursuits will want to check out Goodwood Racecourse, which is about a 20-minute drive from us. The track is home to some renowned races including Glorious Goodwood. The course is an unusual and challenging one, described by champion jockey Frankie Dettori as “the most picturesque course in the world”.

The course is within the 12,000-acre Goodwood Estate, which is also home to Goodwood Motor Circuit. The world-famous motorsport festivals Goodwood Revival, Festival of Speed and the Members’ Meeting are all held at Goodwood Motor Circuit. Visitors to Goodwood Estate can also participate in high-octane track days and other exciting driving experiences, among other sporting adventures.

And just a 15-minute drive from Goodwood Estate is Chichester, a small city, most famous for Chichester Cathedral, the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Chichester. The cathedral has stunning Norman and Gothic features, and is home to beautiful medieval and contemporary art, including two rare medieval sculptures.

Had lunch with friends this week and could not have been better: interesting menu, beautifully prepared and presented food, good wine list, great ambience, service as attentive as can be. A wonderful day out!

Brilliant atmosphere, fantastic food and open fires all sewn up with great service. After a brisk walk along the South Downs there is nothing better than a swift pint or a delicious meal in front of an open fire in a charming village pub. Families, dogs, everyone's welcome. We love the place!

This pub is in great walking country near the South Downs Way. There is also a nearby National Trust property (Uppark House).The pub is very old but has been sympathetically restored. The food was some of the best pub food I have tasted in a long while. They were advertising breakfast with unlimited tea and coffee - would be very tempted on another visit!

Stayed at the white Hart for one night while in the area on business and WOW what a fabulous place. The room was spacious and modern but had a rustic charm. Absolutely spotlessly clean an extremely comfortable. Well appointed rooms with lovely toiletries and even a complimentary chocolate bar. All this for less than a budget hotel chain. I'm hooked I will be using this every time I'm in the area. I would also be thrilled to come here for a romantic weekend. A wonderful wee place...5 stars!!

Affordable luxury! The rooms have a spacious feel, and are very tastefully decorated with great character. The bed itself was extremely comfortable, offering a great night’s sleep. The surrounding area is very peaceful and our room looked out across the countryside, it was just perfect. The staff we met were all friendly and extremely helpful, nothing appeared to be too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bed & breakfast, just lovely!!

This pub has got everything right. Full of character with lots of oak beams and fireplaces and comfortable places to sit and eat. A nice varied menu, lovely food, good beer and attentive friendly staff. The icing on the cake was our room, which was easily the nicest room we have ever stayed in. We have stayed here twice now and will definitely return! An absolute delight!
