Church House Stables is located in the conservation area of Catherington, on the edge of the South Downs National Park, UK. The 100 mile-long South Downs Way National Trail follows the old routes and cattle 'droveways' along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs.

Running along a chalk ridge means that the Trail drains and dries out quickly making it easygoing all year round. The elevated position ensures you are rewarded by breathtaking views across the English Channel and Isle of Wight to the south and over the wooded Weald and heathland ridges to the north.

Whether on foot, on a bike or on a horse, the South Downs Way passes through many different habitats including internationally important chalk rivers, internationally rare species rich chalk grasslands and beautiful ancient woodland. The Trail passes through or passes by 5 National Nature Reserves and dozens of Sites of Special Scientific Interest where you can enjoy stunning wildlife at close hand.

Church House Stables backs onto the 32-acre SSSI Catherington Down and is a short drive to numerous idyllic villages including Hambledon, East Meon, Droxford and Emsworth (all within 8 miles). The amenities of Petersfield (9 miles), Portsmouth (10.5 miles), Chichester (14.5 miles), the steam railway of The Watercress Line (16 miles), Winchester (19.5 miles) and Southampton (24 miles) are within easy reach. Many attractions including Goodwood Race Circuit, Butser Ancient Farm, Fort Nelson, the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Gunwharf Quays and the Weald and Downland Museum are in within easy reach. There are two National Trust properties are within 16 miles.
