Things to do during your stay

Gardens

There are several beautiful English gardens nearby to explore. The spectacular Gertrude Jekyll designed Vann Gardens are just a five minute walk away. By car Ramster Gardens are a 10 minute drive and the famous RHS gardens at Wisley are just 30 minutes away.

Walking / Hiking

There is an abundance of public footpaths and bridleways to explore. Walnut Tree Cottage itself is less than a mile from the Greensand Way walk. We have maps we can lend you although these days you can find lots of walks via google or apps such as Komoot.

Cycling

Walnut Tree Cottage is on the well documented Surrey Cycleway route. As well as road cycling there are places where you can explore on mountain bikes. You can hire bikes from the village itself. For a real challenge Box Hill and the famous hill climb is just over 20 miles away but the views are spectacular if you can complete it.

National Trust Properties

There are several National Trust properties a short distance away including:


Oakhurst Cottage

Hydon's Ball and Heath

Petworth House

Winkworth Arboretum

Polesdon Lacy

The Devil's Punchbowl

Leith Hill Place

Frensham Little Pond

Hatchlands Park

Shopping

Petworth with its quaint streets and abundance of antiques shops is about 20 minutes drive. Local market towns Godalming & Haslemere are also about 15 minutes away. The Surrey Capital Guildford with its cobbled High Street is about 25 minutes away and is well worth a visit. Farnham is also about 25 minutes away by car.

Llama Trekking / Horse Riding

Our local pub The Merry Harriers offers a llama trekking experience which includes lunch and is highly recommended. Horse riding is also available at various local equestrian schools and stables.

Gin Tasting

The Village Spirit Collective with its rather topical Vann Lane Gin in Hambledon and Blackdown Distillery in Lurgashall offer gin tasting.

Golf

Chiddingfold Golf Club and West Surrey Golf club are both less than three miles away.

Fishing

Dominic is an avid angler and he can advise! There are several good day ticket coarse river and lake fisheries as well as trout fisheries within a few miles.
