Things to do around Upper Farringdon

Upper Farringdon is the most beautiful, quaint English village near Alton, with plenty to do and explore nearby. Step into the beautiful Hampshire countryside, enjoy the local Lavender Fields at Hartley Park Farm, or picture yourself in a Jane Austen novel on one of many local scenic walks. Stop off here with us at The Rose & Crown to refuel and relax. After all, fresh air and a dose of mother nature remedies most ailments, and is an excellent way to work up an appetite before a delicious pub lunch (or a way to work it off!).
