If approaching from Dorking via the Nower please take extra care crossing the road to Lince Lane.

Our holiday house is in use most weekends and it is likely that there will be young members of Girlguiding onsite at the same time. We ask that your group is reminded to be respectful at all time and follow the guidelines below.

    • Your group should remain in the campsite area, except when accessing the facilities (toilets/sink), these are accessed by the steps and not by using the paths alongside the house.
    • Please do not use the benches directly in from of the house. There are benches on the campsite for your use
    • The marquee can be used for shelter, but please be mindful if other groups are using the campfire circle
    • Leave the campsite and facilities as you would wish to find them
      • Dispose of all rubbish in the bins by the gate
      • Clean the sink and make sure the drain is free of food
      • Leave the toilets spotless


    • Water:  a cold water tap is situated adjacent to the campground, please run it through before use.
    • A washing-up sink, with hot & cold running water, is located behind the building, accessed via the steps
    • Toilets: There are two toilet blocks at the rear of the building, which are available to campsite users and accessed via the steps.
    • A concrete “altar-fire” base, crates, bricks and metal sheets are available for use on the top level of the campsite.
    • It is likely that the House will be in use. The paving and benches at the front of the house are for house users only.
    • Two green picnic tables for campsite users are situated on the upper level
    • There is a small car park but no access for coaches
