Perfect Jacobean/Georgian house set amongst the South Downs, where Emma Hamilton apparently once danced naked on the tables and HG Wells spent part of his childhood (his mother was housekeeper). The National Trust spent millions restoring Uppark after a disastrous fire in 1989. The gardens are a particular feature. If you think it looks like a doll's house, you may be pleased to know that there's an 18th century one inside.

You’ll find Uppark on the B2146, about 6 miles from Petersfield and just south of the village of South Harting.
