You'll receive a warm welcome at The Brick House B&B in Cheriton, where hospitality is part of the fabric of this beautifully updated Victorian house that started life as a pub. The Bricklayers Arms (known by locals as "The Bricks") closed its doors to the public in 1962, and has been a private house since that time. It underwent a major refurbishment in the late 1980s and again more recently under the present owners.
We're so proud of our house and it's history that we have established a bed and breakfast business to welcome guests into our home. "The Bricks" is once again meeting the needs of visitors to the delightful village of Cheriton, nestled in the heart of the South Downs National Park.
As keen outdoor enthusiasts we love to walk, run or cycle on the lanes, quiet roads and footpaths criss-crossing the beautiful downland on our doorstep. You'll be spoilt for choice, whether visiting for a weekend or longer. We can also support you if you're walking or riding the South Downs Way, one of the most delightful long distance paths in the country. We're proud to be part of the South Downs National Park Cyclists and Walkers Welcome initative.
Crystal clear chalk streams and rivers.
For the complete angler, local rivers are prized for the quality of fishing. The River Itchen flows through Cheriton very close to The Brick House, The River Meon is a just a few miles away and the River Test, arguably the best fly fishing river in the world, is within easy reach.
