At Embers Polesden Lacey, we are proud to offer the unique experience of camping at one of England’s most beautiful National Trust properties.

As the campsite is located near to the main house within the grounds of the Polesden Lacey Estate, you have access during opening hours to the House, Rose Gardens and further afield the 1,400 acres of ancient woodland and many miles of trails can be explored.

Our spacious Grass Pitches are perfect for pitching your tent, or have the ease of a Bell Tent pre-erected before your arrival. There’s bedding, ice-box and bunting options too! Our pitches are all around the outside of each site looking in towards a large field, so children (and Adults!) can run about & play games. Being car free means that it's safe to play.

 

 

Polesden Lacey House and wider Estate

Polesden Lacey House and wider Estate

At Embers Polesden Lacey, you can explore the House and wider estate for a truly amazing day trip.  Some customers travel for miles to experience the vast estate, but whilst staying with us, you luckily have this all on your doorstep!

The House provided the ultimate setting for the socialite Margaret Greville to entertain the Edwardian high society in her day.  The gold saloon and decor was designed by Ritz architects Mewes and Davies in spectacular fashion - a must see for the sheer decadence.

The wider estate has many trails and walks through the 1,400 acres of beautiful ancient woodland, from an easy stroll lasting a couple of miles to a more strenuous hike in the Surrey Hills. 

Whether you decide to explore one of the four main estate walks by foot directly from the campsite, visit the main house or simply relax in shade overlooking the views over the Surrey Hills, you will be pushed to tire of the stunning grounds at Polesden Lacey.
