However, the Tanner's Hatch Youth Hostel nearby is also strongly recommended: It is a 15 minute walk from the nearest road, and fits in very well with the ethos of the weekend!

Tanners Hatch is on the edge of the Polesden Lacey estate. The hostel is only accessible on foot, as the nearest road is a 15-20 min walk away. Guests are rewarded by a tranquil environment, nestling in the Surrey Hills area of outstanding natural beauty.
