Like many rural estates, Elvetham has had to evolve and diversify in order to survive. Once primarily agricultural and highly local, today our businesses cover a wide variety of industries and provide goods and services to organisations much further afield.
There are around 65 properties available for let at Elvetham. The majority of those are cottages for let, the remainder being commercial buildings available for office and storage use.
Elvetham Farm produces both arable (i.e. crops) and pastural (i.e. animal) foodstuffs. Although not officially organic, we strive to be as organic as we can. We cherish our role as a steward of the local environment.
Some of our woodlands are managed in-house, the rest by the Forestry Commission. Our timber is sold in a variety of forms, including woodchip for a biomass facility at Heathrow. Our forestry is used for a variety of leisure pursuits.
Sand and gravel deposits are extracted from our mineral reserves by Cemex and LaFarge. The material is used primarily for construction projects. In partnership with the operators we manage a substantial restoration programme over used mineral workings.
The Estate's former primary residence, Elvetham Hall, is now a hotel - The Elvetham Hotel, which caters for weddings and conferences. On the Estate are also two golf courses "North Hants Golf Club" and "Hartley Wintney Golf Club". We also enjoy permitting a host of hobby and leisure pursuits across our land and woodlands.
