Camping at Etherley Farm, Surrey

A long view of Leith Hill Place over the grounds at Dorking, Surrey

It's well worth the climb from the campsite to the top of Leith Hill, which is crowned by an 18th-century gothic tower. Your efforts will be rewarded by beautiful views north to London and south to the English Channel.

A short distance away, there’s a chance to experience the glamour of the Edwardian upper classes and life in the roaring twenties, by paying a visit to Polesden Lacey.

Once home to Mrs Ronald Greville, the property is complete with all the objects from her celebrated house parties. The grounds include a croquet lawn that can still be played on today, and beautiful gardens.
