Uppark House is a Grade I listed house set upon the South Downs and dates back to the 17th century. The House was unfortunately damaged by a fire on 30 August 1989, just a few days before works on the roof were due to be completed. Whilst a lot of damage was caused by the fire, it was decided to restore the House to its original state as much as possible and much of the furniture and paintings were able to be saved. On 1 June 1995, Uppark finally re-opened to the public.
The gardens are perfect for a stroll in the sunshine. In spring, admire the daffodils, hyacinths, yellow rattle and crown imperials.
Moving into the early summer, the meadow becomes scattered with beautiful wildflowers, including field scabious and oxeye daisies, making it the perfect spot for a picnic. The roses also come out in summer and the herbaceous borders are also a delight! Heading into autumn, the Norway maple trees that lead towards the House turn a beautiful golden colour.
Dogs on short leads are welcome in the grounds and woodland area. There is mobility parking in the main car park, close to the entrance where you can pick up a map showing the accessible routes in the grounds.
Address: Uppark House and Garden, South Harting, Petersfield, West Sussex, GU31 5QR
