Camfield place is a very peaceful spot where Beatrix Potter wrote her Peter Rabbit stories whilst staying with her grandparents in the 1800's and more recently where the late Dame Barbara Cartland wrote her novels. We are within the private grounds of Camfield Place. Transport is essential as there is not any public transport within walking distance. This is a dog walkers paradise. More
