Out and about
Denbies offers a wide selection of indoor wine tasting and outdoor vineyard tours. If the vineyard is at the heart of the estate, the walking trails make up its cocoon. Head off and explore the trails on your own or on a guided tour (complete with great kids maps), parts of which can be enjoyed on a mini train, pulled by a Land Rover. Guests can also hire bicycles from Just Pedal Bike hire, who are based on the estate and explore the stunning hills and dales of the Surrey Hills.
If you are looking for a spot of relaxation after all that activity, pop into The Barn next to the hotel, run by Surrey Hills Physiotherapy. Here you can be stretched and toned, with reflexology, Pilates, yoga and more.
For the explorer in you, there’s the National Trust, Edwardian estate of Polesdon Lacey, Surrey’s iconic Box Hill, and for a spot of shopping, Dorking Antiques Quarter is within easy reach.
And for even more wining and dining, there’s a range of restaurants nearby to choose from, from the modern British, Michelin starred Sorrel, to the 17th Century Dolphin Pub at Betchworth.
Only an hour from London, the Hotel is five minutes from Dorking station, with a regular taxi service for those not driving.
