The hamlet of Oakshott lies to the West of The village if Hawkley in the Hampshire Hangers part of The South Downs National Park. It once consisted of three small holdings: Higher, Middle and Lower Oakshott, named not for their respective altitudes but their proximity to the church at Priors Dean. Today there are fifteen dwellings spread over a mile of single track road, Middle Oakshott Cottages are part of the curtilage of Middle Oakshott and sit adjacent to Oakshott Stream and the famed Hangers Way, a walk that links Alton and The Queen Elizabeth Country Park.
Originally built for farm workers, they have recently undergone extensive refurbishment with the addition of a second bathroom, heat exchangers and 100 mpbs wi-fi. They each provide off-road parking for at least three cars.
A feature of the area is the extensive network of walks in really beautiful countryside. However Hawkley is only two miles from the A3 and the market town of Petersfield, with its mainline station, Waitrose, Tesco and Lidi stores, is less than six miles away.
