About Ampfield

Ampfield is a small village set in beautiful countryside about two miles to the East of the picturesque country town of Romsey, and about seven miles south of historic Winchester, the ancient capital of Wessex.

The River Test and its lovely valley are two miles to the north-west, and the New Forest is about eight miles to the south-west.

The village can trace its roots back to prehistory, and our History page outlines the development of the village over the years.

The countryside around Ampfield has changed little over the centuries. The countryside surrounding Ampfield and its adjacent parishes has been designated a Heritage Area, and the Heritage Area Group promotes schemes to protect and enhance it. The many public footpaths provide a pleasant way of exploring the parish.
