Al fresco dining, picnics, garden walks and dog-friendly experiences at Barnett Hill, the Surrey Hills

Those summer nights...

"Gardening is how I relax; it's another form of creating and playing with colour." - Oscar de la Renta

Rolling lawns, fabulous follies, woodland, meadows and more - our 'back garden' is a rather special spot. Wrapping around our glorious country pile in the Surrey hills, our garden comes to life in the summer months with picnicking, al fresco dining and more. Read on to discover what our secret gardens will offer this summer, and get ready to feel the grass beneath your feet and the sun on your skin.

Please note, for our picnic afternoon teas and garden visits, should the weather be against us you are welcome to take your picnic tea home to enjoy.

From June 18th - July 3rd

Garden Strolls & Picnic Lunches

Sitting pretty atop one of the famous Surrey Hills, Barnett Hill is surrounded by 26 acres of gorgeous gardens with woodlands galore to explore. Between the 18th of June and our eventual 'proper' reopening, anticipated on the 4th of July, we're throwing open the (figurative) doors to our gardens for self-guided tours with afternoon tea picnics, on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Each fifteen minutes from 11am till 5pm we'll be accepting up to six guests at a time for a two-hour visit to explore our gardens and woodland, with a delicious afternoon tea to enjoy where you settle. Until we reopen on the 4th of July the House will be closed, so do schedule in a pit-stop before you arrive and please bring your own blanket. Four-legged friends and little ones will be very welcome.

To book, simply select 'Afternoon Tea' on the diary below. Priced at £19.50 per person, payment will be taken at the time of booking.

Al Fresco Dining

From July 4th

Head for the Hill from July 4th and grab a spot on the most sought after terrace in the Surrey Hills. With wrap-around terraces, gorgeous gardens and divine delights from the kitchen (and the bar!) where could be better to pitch up for a post lock-down treat. Pop the rosé and let the good times roll...

Seats are limited and advance booking is recommended.
