Tanners Hatch Hostel

This seemingly remote cottage, just 2 miles from Dorking, is in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a unique opportunity to get away from it all - you'll need boots, compass and a torch as there is no parking or vehicular access. There is one unisex shower and you may sleep in a triple deck bunk. Parking is 3/4m away, along an often muddy path, but the peace and tranquility of the setting will more than make up for this! Polesden Lacey, a National Trust Regency mansion, is only a short walk away.
