Leylands Farm

Dorking, Surrey


You've spent the day visiting some of Surrey's most charming and historic villages, Abinger Hammer, Holmbury St Mary, Gomshall and Albury, to name but a few. You finish at Shere, claimed to be the prettiest village in Surrey. Each are close by.

On your return to the rural setting of Abinger Common, you take a leisurely stroll through the impeccably kept, 7 acre gardens of Leylands Farm, equalled only by the greater area to which Leylands Farm resides; an area of outstanding natural beauty, famously known as the Surrey Hills. Wandering past the putting green you greet a flock of doves, resting for a moment at the Dovecote. You pass by the pond, the summer house, the herb garden and muse over the ornamental features. A little further and you reach the home of the ducks and the chickens, watching as they follow one another around. Finally, you arrive at the door to the private, two storey annex to the 19th Century farmhouse, Leylands Farm. You throw a log in the burner; relax in a comfortable chair under the oak beams and contemplate the day. You marvel at how it seems you are worlds apart, and yet, so conveniently close to the hustle and bustle of the daily grind...

Other Information

Abinger Common and the Surrey Hills

Abinger Common is a small village in the heart of the Surrey Hills and forms part of the parish of Abinger; this also includes the villages of Abinger Hammer, Forest Green, Walliswood and Oakwoodhill. The village itself dates back to the stone-age, and is reputed to be the oldest village in England. The church dates back to Norman times and is the second oldest Parish church in Surrey.

The Surrey Hills are one of the first areas in England to be designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and today much is owned by the National Trust, the Forestry Commission and local estates. Characterised by hills and valleys, the area is a traditional mix of farmland, woodland, heathland, sunken lanes, picturesque villages, many of medieval origin and market towns. Indeed, the area has influenced some of the country's finest writers, poets, artists and musicians.

The area's abundance of natural features, local landmarks, beauty spots and viewpoints attract millions of visitors each year. Whether on or off-road, the Surrey Hills are a paradise for walkers, runners and cyclists alike. Mountain biking and hiking is especially associated with the three peaks, Leith Hill, Holmbury Hill and Pitch Hill, all of which surround Abinger Common. In fact, Leith Hill has the highest point in southeast England and is crowned by a gothic tower. As popular as it is, the Surrey Hills still retains a feeling of remoteness, isolation and tranquillity and there is often a strong sense of antiquity in many if its areas.

Many other picturesque and historic villages nestle in and around the Hills, such as Albury, Shere, Holmbury St. Mary, Coldharbour, Farley Green, Gomshall and Peaslake, to name but a few. For comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities, with an enticing selection of places to eat and drink, both Guildford to the west, Surrey's county town and the market town of Dorking to the east, are easily accessible.
