Villages around Midhurst
Among the prettiest villages nearby are Elsted, Iping, Graffham, Heysott and Stedham. Lickfold, Lurgashall and Lodsworth are well-heeled and lovely.
Further away South Harting, Rogate and Fernhurst are well worth a trip.
While the villages themselves aren't packed with visitor attractions (to say the least) the beauty and quiet way of life are a great tonic to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The small town of Haslemere in Surrey is just a few miles north of Midhurst on the A286 and is a very pleasant place to visit if you're in the Midhurst area.
