A tour of Broadhalfpenny Down and Hambledon Vineyard - 9th September 2017 - 2pm
Hambledon village holds a special place in the heart of Hampshire’s history as the birth place of English cricket. Broadhalfpenny Down and Hambledon Vineyard want to celebrate this special and unique heritage, and what better way than to start here at Broadhalfpenny Down cricket ground? It will start with tea and biscuits, and you will learn about the history of this internationally recognised sport and how it all began. You will be able to walk around the ground and see the famous monument as well as view our collection of memorabilia in the pavilion. There is then an optional walk across the beautiful fields of the South Downs to Hambledon Vineyard (approximately 2 miles) where we will enjoy a delicious afternoon tea, and tasting of their award winning Classic Cuvée and Classic Cuvée Rosé. The day finishes with a tour of the vineyard, cellars and state of the art gravity fed winery, although you could always stop at the Bat and Ball pub for dinner before you head home!

Testimonials
A fantastic venue! A field of dreams.....It was comfortable, cosy, safe and had easy access for the disabled ones in the family and we were able to prepare all our own food. We made lovely memories there for our parents surprise party! They had a wonderful day. The tranquility at this place is indescribable we didn’t want to leave. The people who looked after our booking could not have been more helpful and willing to make the day special. We will most certainly be calling on them again for future events. Highly recommended! Lindsay – Havant April 2017
Peter I would like to say a very big ‘Thank you’ for allowing us the privilege of hiring your wonderful pavilion and marquee for my parents diamond anniversary party. It was fantastic. They and all the family loved the location. It was perfect as the young ones played cricket and field games in the afternoon whilst my parents had afternoon tea and then people showered and changed into their evening wear for the evenings live entertainment! Once again thank you. Tracy – Portsmouth September 2016
 What a venue!!! We could not have sincerely asked for a better place to hold our parents anniversary gathering. We chose well as we wanted a nice intimate high-tea party with close friends and family. The pavilion is warm and homely and the views were beautiful. To be able to watch the sun go down with a glass of bubbly surrounded by fields was so tranquil. There was plenty of parking as we used the grounds. Tracy was an exceptional host! Professional and was happy to help make our day run smoothly. The kitchen had a tea urn which kept the tea cups full and a cooker which we used for hot snacks. For the whole experience we would give in a 10 out of 10. Thank you Tracy and Peter the Chairman who kindly called in when we were setting up. Kayleigh – Havant 
I just wanted to express my thanks to you and Tracy for allowing me to hire the Pavilion recently for my 'Crafternoon'. Myself and approximately 30 ladies enjoyed a fun afternoon trying out different crafts in the beautiful surroundings at Broadhalfpenny Down. What a lovely peaceful place to enjoy an afternoon. The Pavilion easily seated all 30 of us with our various arts and crafts tables laid out. It was great to have the added bonus of the kitchen enabling us to enjoy a cup of tea and slice of cake too! I have had many requests to do this again soon.  Gail (Catherington)
"WHAT A PLACE. The pavilion was a perfect setting for my cocktail party in the country. The authentic and classic design really created a wonderful atmosphere. An incredible view from the balcony, I can only say thank you so much. Thank you Tracy for all your help”.
Alex Cowplain – April 2017
”I would like to say a huge thank you for providing an absolutely amazing venue that provided the opportunity to give my son and daughter in law the fabulous party they deserved. The booking process was brilliant very professional yet very personal and kind. From the start Tracy could not do enough to make sure our event was just perfect. She met us early in the day so we had plenty of time to set up. She gave us many ideas how to decorate the pavilion and provided us little extras that were so thoughtful and really made all the difference to the appearance e.g. table cloths, ribbon, .twinkly lights. The view from the venue was if painted by an artist and really made the photos all the more magnificent. If you are looking for a wonderful venue that provides heart and soul with awesome scenic views at a great price then this is definitely the place to choose. WINNER!"
