Welcome to Faurefold
Faurefold is Surrey East’s County Holiday House & Campsite, nestling in the folds of the beautiful Surrey Hills at Westcott, near Dorking, just outside the M25 motorway.
Set in 11 acres of its own grounds – all within a fenced boundary – Faurefold is ideal for either day visits / events or longer residential stays. With an open space in front and to the side of the building, and wooded area around it, the site is a lovely place to get to know the countryside, follow trails, or build dens.
Want to help?
Faurefold is managed and run by volunteers and we can always use more help.
We regularly hold working party days to keep our campsite and house looking spick and span. So whether it’s clearing scrub, or painting walls or some social DIY we’d love to hear from you.
We are currently looking for a Young Person (18-30) to join our committee for a media and public relations role. Develop your skills and gain experience for your CV all as part of your Girlguiding Inspire journey
