The Crest Droxford is a stylishly furnished family friendly detached house & annex tucked away in the South Coast countryside.
👨👨👧👦 The Crest is perfect for multiple families & groups of friends - read the reviews to see what everyone says
Enjoying a rural location, on the edge of Droxford Village in the beautiful Meon Valley & South Downs National Park. Droxford Village includes 2 pubs (one awarded 'best Sunday lunch' and the other serving a brilliant curry), a great playground and access to plenty of bike trials & walks.
As soon as you walk through the door you'll see that both the house and the annex are different from your usual holiday home, stylishly furnished to a high standard and spaciously laid out. We loved it as soon as we bought it as our family home in 2010 and I know you will too!
Follow The Crest Droxford on social media for updates on local events and special offers, and if you see a gap in our calendar but it doesn't meet our minimum please just send me a note and we will try our best to fit you in 😊
The large lawned garden at the Crest is a haven in the summer months, providing a perfect setting for al fresco dining with friends or family.
Within the grounds are a childrens 2 storey wooden playhouse and swing, outside games, a large gas BBQ and various eating areas.
Along with many other beautiful villages, West Meon is 5 miles away, with pubs serving great food and where the founder of Lords cricket rests; Wickham and Bishops Waltham are both 6 miles and host an array of little independent shops, cafes and restaurants.
