About The Green Escape

Come & visit

Far from the madding crowd but only 30 miles from London, The Green Escape on Leith Hill, in Surrey, is the place to go to indulge in your favourite pastimes.

Available exclusively for groups of up to 20 people, the whole site is yours for the taking to share with your friends, family or colleagues in complete privacy. It’s the perfect place for special occasions, glamping hen parties, rejuvenating retreat, birthday celebrations or just a unique space for group accommodation.

Whether you want to cosy up in front of a woodburning stove; stride out and explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; toast marshmallows over a campfire; or weave a willow ornament, you can do it all in this beautiful, secluded 6 acre woodland.

The nearest neighbours, are a flock of sheep in the field outside. And the nearest house, a field away, is Leith Hill Place, former home of Ralph Vaughn Williams and site for Charles Darwin’s study of earthworms, which will open as a Visitor Centre this summer.

The Green Escape is high in eco credentials but more importantly it will give you the freedom to just be. To relax and unwind so when you have to leave, you’ll leave refreshed.

What to do…

(Beer & Cake anyone?)

That’s if you don’t over indulge! Your nearest pub is only 10 minutes walk away, but there are pubs all around with home cooking, local beers, log fires; cream tea rooms, cricket greens – more beer and cake, mountain bike tracks, the Olympic cycle route, picturesque villages to visit, fetes and flower shows (and more beer and cake). There really is so much to do.

If you want to try something new there’s an activity to suit everyone with ‘Have Go Workshops’ to make your stay even more special. From Art to bushcraft, from foraging to Yoga, guided walks and bike rides making a special celebration, corporate group, hen or stag visit a unique and memorable experience.

The eco-bit!

We hope that like us, you want to enjoy yourselves with minimal environmental damage. The Green Escape is aiming for zero carbon – there’s no electricity but don’t we all look better by candle or firelight? So no light pollution or sound pollution. All the better to enjoy the stars.

Getting here

Parking on the neighbouring farm is only for 10 cars and is a 5 minute walk from our secret woodland. We hope you will carshare or better still come by train, just one hour from central London and meander up through the lanes in a cart pulled by Obi the Shire horse. What a start to a holiday. Bliss.

The Green Escape can cater for all. Apart from dogs. The neighbouring farm has cattle and the aforementioned sheep, so unfortunately our K-9 friends cannot be allowed.
