Steep is a village and civil parish in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It is 1.4 miles (2.3 km) north of Petersfield, just off the A3 road.

The nearest railway station is Petersfield, 1.4 miles (2.3 km) south of the village.

Since 1899 it has been the location of Bedales School, a progressive public school.

The Harrow

The Harrow is an 18th-century Grade II listed public house.[1] It is on the Campaign for Real Ale's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors.[2]

The poets Edward Thomas (from 1906) and Robert Frost (briefly) lived in the village. Thomas is commemorated by a window in the church, engraved by Laurence Whistler. It was also the home for many years of the Royal Physician Baron Horder and actor Alec Guinness.
