Best campsites for the Surrey Hills AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Popular with day trippers coming from London, the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty runs east to west through Surrey. Striking ridges, beech-clad slopes and a prominent crest give way to a chalky landscape, along with sandy heathland to the west. Villages like Shere and Abinger are integral to the visual appeal of this AONB.

It was designated an AONB in 1958, the second area to be so recognised. Unusually for an AONB, agriculture is not the primary economic activity here. This is very much commuter territory, along with rural activities like equestrianism and outdoor activities.

Highlights include spectacular views from the Devil’s Punch Bowl, Leith Hill, the highest point in southeast England, and Newlands Corner's woods. Frensham Ponds is a lovely place for picnics, Reigate Hill offers wonderful views, and Box Hill is famous as a beauty spot with excellent walking trails. With so much on offer, it’s no surprise this area is such a well-frequented and popular AONB.
