Woodland TranquilitySurrey Hills

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where fresh air, stunning walking routes and rolling hills are the order of the day. The Surrey Hills are famous for their breath-taking, peaceful scenery and thousands flock to the area each year in search of peace and quiet, an escape from the hustle-and-bustle of city life. Horse ride down the gentle bridleways, wander the miles of open countryside, go off-road on a mountain bike: take in the views at slow pace and soak up the beauty of slow-living in this iconic part of the country.

The Surrey Hills cover an area of 163 square miles in Surrey, in South Eastern England. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been so since 1958. The highest point is 294 metres above sea level and can be found at Leith Hill near Coldharbour and is also the highest point of Southern England. This is part of the Greensand ridge, which traverses the area.
