Some of the most familiar beauty spots in England are found within the Surrey Hills including Box Hill, Leith Hill and the Devil’s Punch Bowl. With extensive rights of way, open commons, sunken lanes & easy access it is the perfect place to enjoy the fresh air and outstanding scenery. There are so many stunning walks to choose from for all levels of ability and through all sorts of terrain. Our favourite is the Newlands Corner St Martha's Church walk, where you are afforded the most wonderful views across the hills from St Martha's.
Cycling is a great way to experience the Surrey Hills. The huge success of the 2012 London Olympics has seen a surge in cyclists and The Prudential Ride London - Surrey 100 carries on this Olympic legacy, inspiring amateur cyclists to take up the challenge and ride parts of this famous circuit. For those looking for more off-road action, the Surrey Hills offer a spectacular range of single track mountain bike trails through ancient woodland and taking in some of the highest points in Surrey. There are lots of different routes to choose from for all ability levels.
