The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offers some of South East England’s most beautiful and accessible countryside. Opportunities abound for exploring this special area; you’ll discover breathtaking views, open commons, attractive market towns and villages.
The hills stretch across the chalk North Downs that run from Farnham in the west, above Guildford, Dorking and Reigate, to Oxted in the east. The grandeur and beauty of these hills embrace an amazing variety of countryside from rolling chalk downs and flower rich grasslands, to acid heaths and woodlands. Come and discover one of England’s finest landscapes for yourself.
It is the chalk soil that contributes to the outstanding award winning wine production in this area of the country. Denbies Wine Estate, 265 acres under vine, has been family owned and run since 1984. Denbies vineyard was planted in 1986, and since then has become one of the largest wine producers in the UK. Denbies is honoured over the years to have welcomed several members of the Royal family to the estate, completing the historical connections which date back to Prince Albert in 1851. Denbies produces a range of 14 internationally award winning wines and welcomes visitors to learn about wine production and tasting.
The Denbies Estate offers a fantastic all weather day out, with excellent on-site facilities, ample free parking for coaches and cars, complimentary tour for group organisers and discounts in the restaurants and gift shop, Denbies represents a great value destination in the heart of the Surrey Hills.
