A delightful village green at the heart of the community surrounded by acres of rich woodland and open fields.
With an assortment of quaint country cottages, many with roses round the door… a bustling hardware store that’s been a local institution for over 40 years… an iconic chapel on a hill, surrounded by nothing but acres of open farmland.
There’s even an astonishingly accurate model railway, depicting the village during World War II. All set within some of the loveliest countryside in the UK, with the south coast on your doorstep: life in Rowlands Castle offers the best of all worlds.
With its own school* (one of many in the surrounding area serving children of all ages), a choice of thriving churches, a pharmacy, convenience store and veterinary surgery, the village boasts a surprising range of amenities for its size.
