Plain Cottage is set in a superb location, not far from the centre of the village of Dockenfield on the Surrey/Hampshire border, set within the South Downs National Park, and backing directly onto Alice Holt Forest. Dockenfield is an active and vibrant village which offers a church, the popular Bluebell pub and many well-supported community events and clubs including the annual Dockenfield Day village fete, Horticultural Society, Local History Group, Village Lunch, Pilates in the church hall and more. The nearby villages of Frensham and Rowledge boast a variety of local facilities including a village shop, Post Office, butcher, public houses, cricket and tennis clubs and excellent schools. There is sailing and fishing at the Frensham Ponds and many well-regarded golf courses close by. Alice Holt Forest (www.aliceholt.org) provides an opportunity for walking, riding, cycling and outward-bound activities. The Shipwrights Way, a 50-mile cycle route to the south coast is nearby. The pretty Georgian market town of Farnham provides the area with an excellent range of shopping and leisure facilities, with the more extensive facilities of Guildford a little further afield.


(Sat Nav GU10 4HA) From Farnham, take West Street away from the town centre, continuing straight ahead at the roundabout, and then at the Coxbridge Roundabout, taking the second exit onto the A325/Wrecclesham Road.
