The cricket ground at Broadhalfpenny Down is the best venue in Hampshire, we had a fantastic evening and the party was everything we wanted and hoped for. Beautiful views, amazing sunset and fantastic amenities, we were looked after and helped with every request we made and it was perfect in every way. Hope for an excuse to have another party!


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!

What a magical venue for a wedding! The history of the site means a lot to those who play cricket, but for the rest of us it is the wonderful views, lovely sunsets and ideal rural setting that appeals. The Pavilion and existing marquee provided all that we needed on the ‘support’ side and by adding a larger marquee looking out over the views (panoramic windows), we could easily accommodate our wedding guests in style. We added just a few flowers and some lights and the location did the rest. I cannot recommend Broadhalfpenny Down enough. It made for a truly special day. For me and my ‘cricketing’ husband! Thank you!


What a fantastic venue! I hired the cricket pavilion for the bridal shower for one of my best friends. The location was absolutely perfect! We sat up tables on the veranda so regardless of the weather, we could dine outside. We welcomed the guests with cocktails and canapés as we looked out on the stunning views. The grounds were perfect for the occasion as we had plenty of room to play games. The balcony also provided a perfect location for the photos of the stunning bride to be. Support from the staff leading up to the party was excellent and all my questions were answered well in advance. I would definitely hire this venue again.
