London and all the sights are only 40 minutes away by train, yet Horsley Camping & Caravanning site is delightful, quiet and unspoilt. It has a good duck and goose population on its part lily covered lake (unfenced). It provides 130 pitches, of which 73 have 10A electricity connections and 64 are on hardstandings. Seventeen pitches are around the bank of the lake (persons over 12 years only), the remainder are further back in three hedged, grass fields with mostly level ground but with some slopes in places. There is a range of mature trees and a woodland dog walk area (may be muddy), and an enclosed play area has been added. The soil is clay based so rain tends to settle – sluice gates remove extra water from the lake area when the rain is heavy. Basic provisions, gas and books are kept in reception and resident managers will make you comfortable.
Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
For days out visit the National Trust’s Polsden Lacey, a stunning Edwardian Manor House near Dorking. RHS Garden Wisely the flagship garden of the Royal Horticultural Society, and its huge plant collection. Bocketts Park Farm near Leatherhead and the Brookland Museum - home to Concorde - in Weybridge. The theme parks Chessington World of Adventure, Legoland and Thorpe Park are all nearby. The Horsley Jubilee Trail, starting at Horsley station, is a nine mile circular walk taking in woods, historic buildings, great panoramas and a well earned refreshment stop at a traditional English pub. You can enjoy more views of the area from Newlands Corner, a popular beauty spot in the Surrey Hills, just south of the site.
