Glamping Surrey: 22 Amazing Places You Need to Stay [2022]

by

From rolling hills to gorgeous architecture to adorable farm shops, there are countless reasons to visit Surrey.

One thing you may not know, however, is that Surrey is home to an array of eclectic and luxurious places to go glamping.

So if you’re interested in going glamping in Surrey then read on as I’ve rounded up every single option for you!

From safari tents and shepherds huts to bell tents and glamping pods, here are 22 amazing places to go glamping in Surrey.

1. The Green Escape Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £650 for 22 people

Location: Leith Hill, nr Forest Green

This glamping site may be called The Green Escape but if you time your stay right, it should really be called The Blue Escape.

With shepherds huts spread out across a sea of bluebells, The Green Escape is a beautiful sight to behold in the spring months.

However, don’t let that put you off visiting at other times of the year as it’s just as special then, I promise.

Available exclusively for groups of up to 22 people, the six-acre woodland comprises seven huts, as well as lots of childhood treats.

Think a zip wire, swings, archery, table football, firepit, hammocks, an outdoor shower, a pizza oven and a BBQ.

What guests say: “A group of us gathered to celebrate friends 50ths and it was just the best weekend. The Green Escape is a beautiful place out in the countryside surrounded by woodland and open fields (with a few friendly chickens and alpacas!). The accommodation is so comfy, the set-up is fabulous with such a well-equipped kitchen – all you need is food, drink, a torch and toothbrush!”

2. Chessington Explorer Safari Tents

Price per night: From £230 for 2 adults and 2 children

Location: Chessington

Chessington Explorer is one of the best places for families to go glamping in Surrey.

Not only are the tents a kid’s dream come true but they also have access to all the rides and attractions at Chessington World of Adventures.

Yep, that’s right, the price of the tents includes one-day admission to Chessington for all the family!

But back to the tents…

The fully-lit tents come with wood flooring, a double bed, two single beds, and power sockets.

However, if you want to elevate your stay, you can upgrade to a premium tent to enjoy a wild adventure with all the luxuries of a hotel room! 

What guests say: ” I came wanting to find any little excuse to complain. As I sit here now on my last morning having a complimentary coffee and listening to the lorikeets in the background, I still can’t find one. It has been the most amazing few days of my life and as a family, we are gutted to be leaving. The glamping tent was so wonderful, it was very clean and all beds were freshly made.”

3. The Merry Harriers Shepherds Huts

Price per night: From £225 for 2 people

Location: Hambledon, nr Godalming

Shepherds huts or hotel suites? You decide!

The Merry Harriers Shepherds Huts is by far one of my favourite places to go glamping in Surrey.

These huts are just way too special!

Set beside a sparkling pond that overlooks the horse-dotted fields of the rolling Surrey Hills, The Merry Harriers is home to five gorgeous huts.

Expect to see all sorts of luxuries when you enter your hut, such as a downy double bed, log-burner, cosy seating area with games, Smart TV, walk-in rain shower, Nespresso machine, and a lovingly-filled fridge of wine and nibbles.

They’re seriously spoiling you here at The Merry Harriers!

What guests say: “They are exceptional – everything you would expect from a fancy hotel room but with so much more character and made for a really fun few days. Amazing attention to detail with lovely bed linen and accessories, huge rain showers in the bathroom, underfloor heating, kitchen corner with teas and coffees and delicious homemade brownies.”

4. Surrey Lakes Glamping

Price per night: From £118 for 4 people

Location: Thorncombe, nr Godalming

If you love the idea of sleeping under the stars but with a few creature comforts, then you’ll love Surrey Lakes Glamping.

Their two yurts and three bell tents have the cosiest of beds to ensure a good night’s sleep.

And outside your accommodation, you’ll find sunbathing chairs, a dining area, BBQ and campfire where you can stargaze and toast marshmallows.

However, I’m sure you’re currently thinking ‘Where’s the lake? I mean, it’s called Surrey Lakes, right?’.

Through the magical woodland behind the site (it’s seriously enchanting), you’ll encounter a stunning lake that’s home to a kingfisher.

Sounds pretty beautiful, huh?

Well, it gets even better!

One of the great privileges of the site’s location is that it backs onto the world-famous Winkworth Arboretum with nearly 130 acres of land to discover.

What guests say: “The view from the campsite was beautiful. We immediately felt relaxed and surrounded by nature. The tent and campsite were very well-equipped with most things you can think of – plates, cutlery, firewood… even an electric stove. The shower was hot and strong too.”

5. Luxury Blackdown Shepherds Hut 

luxury-blackdown-shepherds-hut-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £115 for 2 people

Location: Farley Green, nr Guildford

Luxury Blackdown Shepherds Hut is one of the most romantic places to go glamping in Surrey.

From the large stargazing window above the bed to the 40 acres of woodland, orchard and garden that surround the hut, glamping doesn’t get much more special than this.

And the best bit is that the hut is well-equipped too!

It has a huge comfy bed, dining area, a luxurious en-suite bathroom, and a kitchenette with a fridge and two electric hobs.

This hut is seriously special, so you best make sure your company is special too.

What guests say: “5-star escape, perfect in every way. Susan welcomed us with a smile and lots of information about the area. We found a well-stocked fridge and fresh bread and a surprise fresh lemon cake. The hut was very luxurious and spotlessly clean, we stayed for two nights but wished we’d had time for more.”

6. Alderstead Heath Experience Freedom Glamping

alderstead-heath-experience-freedom-glamping-lodges

Price per night: From £59 for 2 adults and 2 children

Location: Merstham, nr Redhill

Alderstead Heath Experience Freedom Glamping is the cheapest place to go glamping in Surrey so it gets an automatic big thumbs up from me.

If you want to go glamping but want to save your pennies, their luxury glamping pods are the perfect compromise.

The pods come with comfy bedding, an en-suite bathroom, and a kitchenette, so you’ve got all you could need.

However, my favourite thing about the pods is their spacious decking where you can sunbathe in the day and stargaze at night.

What guests say: “Had a lovely time. The pods were so well-equipped and I loved the design – the sofa transforms into a fold-down bed really easily with hidden shelves inside for your glass of wine! They were lovely and clean with a large bathroom and it was a great idea that you got a disposable BBQ to cook on for the first night.”

7. Beautiful Shepherds Hut 

beautiful-shepherds-hut-on-decking-with-outdoor-seating

Price per night: From £131 for 2 people

Location: Chiddingfold, nr Milford

This Beautiful Shepherds Hut is, well, beautiful.

Situated on a 50-acre farm, nestled on the Surrey/West Sussex border, the hut is fully equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable self-catering stay.

Inside the hut, there’s a kitchen with an oven and a hob (that’s pretty much unheard of in shepherds huts!), a TV, sofa, log burner and an en-suite bathroom.

As such, it may be tempting to spend all your time inside but hear me out, okay…

Outside, there’s a BBQ and fire pit with tables and chairs, which is pretty much the perfect set-up for a spot of al fresco dining at sunset, no?

Bring a bottle of Prosecco and some treats for dessert and you’re onto a winner.

What guests say: “Jane’s place is a stunning, cosy, private and perfectly put together shepherd’s hut in a spacious nature-filled field. The bed is ridiculously comfortable and hard to get out of! Jane went above and beyond and added extra touches, such as an amazing breakfast hamper.”

8. Luxury Shepherds Hut 

luxury-shepherds-hut-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £68 for 2 people

Location: Haslemere, nr Dorking

If you want somewhere romantic to stay, you’ll find romance aplenty in this Luxury Shepherds Hut

This is one of my favourite options as there are so many reasons to book a stay here.

Firstly, it’s got a super comfy king-size bed.

Need I say more?

Secondly, it has the most gorgeous little decking area where you’re surrounded by trees – you’ll feel completely at one with nature.

Thirdly, it has an impressive kitchen with two hobs and a microwave, and a modern en-suite bathroom.

Lastly (and this is a good one), it’s fully insulated with gas central heating (also unheard of in a shepherds hut!) so it’s suitable for year-round use.

What guests say: “An excellent stay – we had a wonderful time at the shepherds hut, with a gorgeous view, quiet stay and beautifully decorated accommodation. Breakfast eggs and bread were kindly provided and the BBQ was a welcomed addition to our first evening. Nice walks in the area too.”

9. Long Acres Glamping

Price per night: From £107.50 for 4 people

Location: Newchapel, nr Crawley

Long Acres Glamping is the place to go if you can’t decide which accommodation type you want to stay in.

Home to three glamping pods, the Woodmans Lodge, Beach Shack, shepherds hut and two glam bell tents, there’s plenty of options to pick between.

So why not stay in, say, a glamping pod for two nights, before moving over to a bell tent for a further night?

Whichever option you choose, they can all guarantee beautiful views over an eight-acre hay meadow, as well as bedding, towels, a modern toilet and shower block, and pay-as-you-go Wi-Fi.

My favourite option would have to be the Beach Shack, but the bell tents look lovely too.

What guests say: “We stayed in the Beach Shack which was just incredible especially as it was our first time glamping. You have to visit to see how lovely it is! The staff are really lovely and the facilities are clean and modern. On a Friday night, there’s a cocktail van, Saturday a pizza van and ice cream came a few times.”

10. Little Cowdray Farm Glamping Shepherds Hut

little-cowdray-farm-shepherds-hut-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £92 for 2 people

Location: Thursley, nr Haslemere

Little Cowdray Farm Glamping Shepherds Hut is an absolute gem.

Not only does it enjoy a private hot tub (yes, please!) but it also contains everything you could need, including a comfy double bed, cooker, microwave, log burner, central heating, and an en-suite bathroom.

As well as the hot tub, there’s also a BBQ and outside dining area so you can drink and dine al fresco to your heart’s content.

Enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the decking while listening to birdsong and soaking up those classically beautiful Surrey views.

However, if the weather does take a turn for the worse, don’t worry because the hut also has a TV and Bluetooth audio system for you to take full advantage of.

What guests say: “WOW! We couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate our first wedding anniversary! The shepherds hut was the perfect place. Relaxing in the hot tub in the evening watching the sunset was so nice, but meeting the animals and having cuddles with the goats was the highlight for us.”

11. Restful Hideaway 

little-cowdray-farm-shepherds-hut-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £125 for 2 people

Location: Coldharbour, nr Dorking

There are plenty of reasons to book a stay at Restful Hideaway but, of course, I’ve first got to point out the beautiful outdoor space.

I’m already dreaming about kicking back on that outdoor sofa with great company and a glass of wine in hand.

But what’s not pictured, however, is the dreamy outdoor wood-fired bath which looks like heaven on earth to me.

As for the inside of the hut, your mind will be blown as soon as you step through the front door.

Picture a huge luxurious bed, stunning interior decor, and a marble en-suite bathroom to boot, and you’re probably halfway there.

Yep, it’s that good.

What guests say: “Can’t recommend this Airbnb highly enough! Everything in the hut was finished to an exceptionally high standard, from the furnishings and decor, the comfortable bed, stunning bathroom suite and high-quality complimentary toiletries – the apartment smelt divine when we arrived! The outdoor wood-fired bath was a real treat too.”

12. Surrey Hills Yurts

surrey-hills-yurt-by-hedge-in-field-in-daytime

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people (extra adults £80 per stay, extra children £45 per stay (above the age of 2), up to 6 people)

Location: Dorking

The surroundings of Surrey Hills Yurts are some of the best of any of the recommendations on this list.

There are six beautiful eco-friendly yurts to choose from: Ash, Hazel, Oak, Willow, Birch and Chestnut.

The former three sleep up to six people, making them ideal for a larger friend or family getaway, while the latter three sleep four.

However, the yurts get more expensive the more people that stay, so you can still make it a romantic getaway for two!

But no matter which yurt you choose, you can rest assured that you’ll be getting top-quality furniture and sumptuous bedding.

Surrey Hills Yurts also host corporate team building stays, hen parties and other large group celebrations if you’re planning any of those anytime soon!

What guests say: “A really special place. Yurts and kitchen are well stocked up with every possible item you may need. The kitchen is acutely the most pleasant one we ever cooked in while glamping, with birds song and roaming wildlife nearby. Make sure to try their delicious breakfast hamper: fresh eggs from their chickens, sausages and bacon made on-site too.”

13. Shepherds Rest

Price per night: From £80 for 2 people

Location: Mickleham, nr Leatherhead

You’re guaranteed to return to normal life feeling well-rested and rejuvenated after a stay at Shepherds Rest.

I mean, it’s in the name, isn’t it?

The interior of the hut is pretty simple, comprising a cosy dining-turned-bed area.

But don’t worry because that’s not it – there’s also a separate hut containing a spacious fully-stocked kitchen with breakfast bits and a modern bathroom.

Outside, there’s a BBQ, chiminea, and a picnic table, so you can dine al fresco all day long!

What guests say: “A beautiful hut hidden in a little corner of Sussex. Very generous with amenities and lots of good bread and biscuits. Enjoyed the experience in the hut which has been restored extremely well. The facilities are great too. Love the fresh wildflowers picked as a little nice touch.”

14. YHA Holmbury St Mary Landpods

Location: Holmbury st Mary, nr Guildford

You can always count on YHA to deliver on cheap, quality accommodation – and YHA Holmbury St Mary is no exception.

You may have stayed in a YHA hostel before but have you gone camping or glamping at a YHA?

Well, their landpods can help you do just that.

Set in a beautiful woodland setting and sleeping up to four people each, the fully-waterproof structures are elevated off the ground to ensure a dry and comfortable stay.

Inside each pod, you’ll find LED lighting and two double mattresses with bedding – but yes, that does mean that they’re sadly not heated.

Glampers also have full use of the hostel including the self-catering kitchens, bathrooms, showers and lounge.

However, my favourite thing about the pods is the fact you can open the roof for a better view.

Stargazing? Yes, please!

What guests say: “We had a great nights sleep. The landpod was in a lovely woodland setting, nestled between the trees, it was gorgeous to wake up to in the morning. It was great that we could flip up the cover and enjoy the surroundings while lying in bed!”

15. Heath Hall Farm Shepherds Hut

heath-hall-farm-shepherds-hut-with-picnic-table-on-sunny-day

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people and £137.50 for 4 people

Location: Bowlhead Green, nr Godalming

Heath Hall Farm Shepherds Hut looks pretty unassuming from the outside but it’s actually one of the best recommendations on the list.

I mean, first off, it’s got a bubbling hot tub so surely that’s reason enough to book a stay here, right?

Secondly, Heath Hall Farm is great for two sets of couples as you’ve got two places to sleep: the shepherds hut and the arc.

I also can’t get enough of the separate clear, heated sitting room where you can stargaze on even the chilliest of nights.

On top of this, you’ve also got full use of their tennis court and two bicycles to roam the countryside with.

But no matter whether you make your staycation an active or a relaxing one (personally, the hot tub is calling my name), you’re guaranteed a great stay.

What guests say: “We had the most amazing experience. The farm is beautiful and set in a nice remote area in the countryside. The Shepherd’s Hut feels much bigger when you’re inside and has everything you need to enjoy a nice break – toaster, kettle, microwave, hob, TV etc. They really have thought of everything.”

16. Glamping Holiday Bell Tents

glamping-holiday-bell-tent-lit-up-in-evening-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £120 for 2 people (£30 extra per night per additional guest up to 5 people)

Location: Alfold, nr Guildford

Glamping Holiday Bell Tent is by far one of my favourite places to go glamping in Surrey.

I mean, just look at it!

Dotted around a two-acre field are six five-metre bell tents, each sleeping up to five people, making them ideal for family holidays.

However, as prices are based around two people, it’s easy to make this a romantic break too!

It’s all the special touches that make these bell tents so amazing, such as handmade bunting, lanterns and flowers.

Oh, and of course, that’s not to forget the complimentary breakfast pack with bacon from a local butcher, eggs, rolls, and milk.

Glamping Holiday also hosts hen parties and corporate stays, or you could just book out the whole site for a big family getaway.

Whatever your reason, get in touch to see what you can do!

What guests say: “What a wonderful way to spend my hen do. Relaxing with my best friends, chatting around the fire each night, feeling chilled and peaceful. The yurts are so beautiful and the small touches made all the difference. Even the toilets and showers were fab.”

17. Surrey Hills Shepherds Hut

surrey-hills-shepherds-hut-in-field-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £80 for 2 people

Location: Shere, nr Guildford

Surrey Hills Shepherds Hut is like a tardis; small on the outside but inside it packs a real punch.

It may only house a double bed, table, chairs, some storage and a wood-burner – but that’s the beauty of this place!

You’ll spend your time here reading books by the fire, going on long country walks, and snuggling up in bed together, which is the recipe for a dreamy weekend in my opinion.

I’m sure you’re wondering where the bathroom is, so I’m happy to report that there’s a compost loo and gas-powered shower with constant hot water just a short walk away.

However, my favourite thing about this hut is the breakfast hamper that’s lovingly delivered to your hut each morning.

Filled with all sorts of goodies such as cereals, yoghurt, fruit juice, homemade bread, cheese and cold meats, the hamper will get every day off to a cracking start!

What guests say: “Gills place is a perfect getaway from the daily grind! It’s very private and tranquil, the cabin is cosy and equipped with everything you need. We had a great time cooking on the fire and showering enjoying the view. Gill is a great host and adds some lovely touches, delicious cake on arrival and a lovely breakfast hamper delivered to the hut each morning.”

18. Shepherds Hut with Hot Tub 

green-shepherds-hut-on-edge-of-forest-at-sunset

Price per night: From £139 for 2 people

Location: Chelsham, nr Caterham

This Shepherds Hut with Hot Tub is one of my all-time favourite places to go glamping in Surrey because yep, you guessed it – it’s got a hot tub!

I’m sure you’ll be spending the majority of your time here in the hot tub but in case you’re interested, let me tell you a thing or two about the hut itself…

Inside the hut, you’ll find a double bed, kitchenette, dining area, TV, radio, and an en-suite bathroom.

My favourite thing about the hut (aside from the hot tub, of course) is the complimentary continental breakfasts the hosts kindly treat you to.

With delicious farmhouse multi-seed bread, butter, jam, yoghurt, cereals, fresh fruit and more, you’re sure to start every day dining like a queen.

However, if you’d like to upgrade to a full English breakfast, you can do so for £8 per person.

What guests say: “This is truly a unique stay in a wonderful forest setting. If you love nature and need a peaceful break, then come to this shepherds hut. Their attention to detail makes the stay very special. The hut was very clean and had everything you need for an excellent break. The hot tub under the stars is a fantastic way to unwind from the day.”

19. The Big Green Shepherds Hut 

the-big-green-shepherds-hut-with-picnic-tables-in-field

Price per night: From £86 for 2 people

Location: Russ Hill, nr Crawley

The Big Green Shepherds Hut is what it says on the tin: a big green shepherds hut.

But I can assure you that there’s more to the hut than being ‘big’ and ‘green’.

Maybe they should have named the hut ‘beautiful, cosy and rustic’ because it’s all of those things too.

Unlike many other shepherds huts, which tend to be quite modern or done in the farmhouse style, this hut is completely different.

From the tall nook bed to the exposed wood walls, the owners have certainly put a unique spin on your typical hut – and I can’t get enough of it!

The surroundings are idyllic too so there’s nothing not to love.

What guests say: “We had a lovely stay over NYE, the hut had all the essentials and some lovely personal touches: a NYE banner and wine! The hut was super cosy as was the bed, one of the comfiest and warmest we’ve stayed in.”

20. The Woods Bell Tent

double-bed-inside-the-woods-bell-tent-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £115 for 4 people

Location: Chiddingfold, nr Milford

The Woods Bell Tent is certainly one of the more picturesque recommendations on this list.

Set in the centre of 15 acres of ancient oak woodland, the off-grid bell tent is equipped with cosy bedding and blankets to keep you nice and snug.

It’s the perfect spot to stargaze, and luckily for you, there’s outside seating and a fire pit where you can toast marshmallows while enjoying the clear night skies.

Nearby, you’ll find the hand-built bathroom that has a hot shower, eco-loo, sink, towels and toiletries.

Top tip: upgrade your stay by ordering one (or maybe a few?) of their hampers.

Whether you opt for the breakfast, picnic, BBQ or luxury hamper, you’re sure to be in for a treat.

What guests say: “What a treasure! Once you’ve experienced this beautiful and completely private woodland glade, you are sure to return again and again! The shower, washroom, and kitchen setup are also brilliant – and sure to satisfy even the fussiest of glampers!”

21. Writer’s Retreat Shepherds Hut 

path-leading-to-writers-retreat-shepherds-hut-glamping-surrey

Price per night: From £131 for 2 people

Location: Westcott, nr Dorking

Writer’s Retreat Shepherds Hut is pretty much my idea of heaven on earth.

I can already feel my mind recharging and my creative juices flowing after a stay here.

But even if you’re not a writer like myself, you’ll still find lots to love about this shepherds hut.

From the luxurious en-suite and kitchenette to the cosy bed and amazing views, there’s nothing not to love about the hut.

Perfect for all year round stays, the hut not only has a log burner but a radiator too which is a real luxury when it comes to shepherds huts.

But no matter what time of year you visit, you’re in for a relaxing break, that’s for sure.

What guests say: “The accommodation was fantastic, comfortable bed, very clean and the little welcome touches of some eggs on arrival for breakfast were lovely. We had a lovely time drinking wine watching the horses and sunset, the fire pit was a great touch too. You cannot see another property so it feels like you’re deep in the countryside but only a stone’s throw from a town!”

22. Hammond Glamping

hammond-glamping-bell-tent-in-field-in-daytime

Price per night: From £100 for 5 people

Location: West Horsley, nr Guildford

Last but by no means least, Hammond Glamping is the perfect place to unwind and spend some time appreciating nature.

You’ve got a great excuse to get out and explore here too because you get complimentary entry to Hatchlands Park Country House and Gardens for the duration of your stay.

As for the tents themselves, you can choose between basic and deluxe bell tents.

The former are unfurnished so you’ll have to bring your own camping gear, whereas the latter enjoy a double bed, two single beds, two single airbeds, bed linen, duvets, pillows, and a wood-burning stove with complimentary logs.

You’ll be paying an extra £29 a night for the privilege of a furnished bell tent but I’d say it’s well worth it for the proper glamping experience!

I mean, what’s glamping without a bit of glam, right?

What guests say: “What a brilliant holiday! Our family of six had the best time away! Hammonds Glamping is well organised, beautifully located and has everything you need for a few days away from home! Hot showers, clean ablutions and even a cappuccino van for the mornings!”
