If you yearn for the pastoral, Seven Acres offers the peace of the countryside – without compromising on convenience.
This historical and literary gem of a village is set in the ideal location to partake in a walk along the Harrow Way, an ancient trackway which passes
north of the village… or visit the nearby village of Steventon to take in the sights along Jane Austen’s favoured walking paths.
Overton isn’t a village which rests on its laurels: residents enjoy the Great Overton Duck Race every August, the biennial Scarecrow Festival and the Overton Sheep Fair, next to be experienced in 2020. Every summer, nearby Laverstoke Park Farm, a renowned organic and biodynamic farm with a field-to-fork ethos, plays host to BBC Radio 2’s CarFest South.
