If you love walking and cycling, you’ll relish in the choice of walking trails and mixed terrain that criss-crosses the North Downs. In easy reach of the site are several attractions and National Trust properties, including Box Hill for stunning panoramic views of the countryside or Gatton Park and Gardens with 600 acres of sculpted parkland, where you can stretch your legs and let the little ones discover their natural surroundings.
