Surrounded by the South Downs National Park, Oak Park in east Hampshire is nicely positioned for travel to London or the south coast with its attractive seaside towns.
Liphook’s endearing village centre is a walkable 0.7 miles away and holds everything you could expect from local shops. From banks and pharmacies to takeaways and florists, all your daily needs are catered for. For a larger shopping trip, Sainsbury’s superstore is only 1 mile away by car and provides all the variety and choice you would expect. Local towns such as Haslemere and Petersfield bring more variety to the region with big brands and familiar names that make shopping that more enjoyable*.
When it comes to dining out, if you want a break away from local takeaways or pubs, then nearby historic inns have good menus and welcoming firesides. Further afield towns closer to the coast such as Chichester with Wagamamas and other well-known restaurantsprovide a richer choice.
