Out And About

The Flower Pots sits in the beautiful and historic Hampshire village of Cheriton, nestled in the Itchen Valley, five miles from Winchester, the ancient cathedral capital of England.

Take a walk from The Pots

The Flower Pots Inn has one of the most beautiful local beer gardens in Hampshire. Enjoy your meal with a beer in our outdoor Inn area, while savouring the stunning view. Our old English Elm tree is very special to us. Then, have a wander, choosing one of the many countryside walks around the area.

Battle of Cheriton Walk

DISTANCE: 6 MILES

The Battle of Cheriton Walk is a dog friendly route that traces the footsteps of Waller’s Parliamentarian army who helped change the course of the English Civil War in 1644 by forcing Hopton’s Royalist troops to retreat.

Itchen Way

DISTANCE: 32 MILES

The Itchen Way is a picturesque footpath that follows the river from its source to its mouth, passing through the beautiful landscapes of Hampshire and numerous historic sites along the 32 miles from Cheriton to Southampton Water.  The walk along the river from The Pots to Titchborne and then Alresford is very easy to access from The Pots.

Wayfarer’s Walk

DISTANCE: 70 MILES

The 70 mile Wayfarer’s Walk passes straight through Cheriton as the route meanders from the high chalk downs at Inkpen to finish at Emsworth Harbour. The landscape varies from chalk turfs to mudflats and salt marshes and is divided into six easy sections, each providing a good day out.

South Downs Way

DISTANCE: 100 MILES

The South Downs Way is a 100-mile footpath and bridleway running along the South Downs from Winchester to Eastbourne in East Sussex. It is a stunning route and The Flower Pots Inn is regularly used by walkers as a staging post for beer and food. Please click Contact Us for availability.

Local Attractions

2) The Watercress Line

Two and a half miles from The Flower Pots, the privately owned Watercress Line runs from Alresford to Alton and was purchased from British Rail in 1975.

You can travel by one of their lovingly restored Steam trains through ten miles of beautiful Hampshire countryside. It’s the perfect way to unwind and witness the sights, sounds, smells and magic of steam travel from a bygone age.

3) Hinton Ampner House

Hinton Ampner House is a Grade II listed stately home with stunning gardens within the parish of Bramdean and Hinton Ampner.

The house and garden are owned by the National Trust and are open to the public throughout the year. The gardens were created by Ralph Stawell Dutton (1898–1985) and the 8th and last Baron Sherborne.

4) Marwell Zoo

This 140-acre park is home to over 250 exotic and endangered species in beautiful, landscaped surroundings. The zoo was founded by Dr John Knowles, opening in 1972.

He sold a Rolls Royce to buy some zebras. Within a few years of its establishment, it became an important breeding centre for several species, some, such as the Mongolian wild horse was already extinct in the wild whilst others, such as the snow leopard and Siberian tiger were close to extinction as species.
