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 our campsite is close to the centre of the estate, you’ll enjoy direct access to the famous House and gardens during their opening hours. Further afield, there are 1,400 acres of ancient woodland and timeless trails to be explored.

Our spacious grass pitches are perfect for pitching your tent, or we can have your Bell Tent pre-erected before you arrive. There are bedding, ice-box and lighting options too…just let us know what you’d like to have ready!

Polesden Lacey House and wider Estate

Polesden Lacey House and wider Estate

Be sure to make time to explore the House and wider estate for a truly memorable day. Having such an iconic setting right on your doorstep is an unmissable opportunity.

The House provided the ultimate location for renowned socialite Margaret Greville to entertain Edwardian high society.  The décor in the spectacular gold saloon was designed by Ritz architects Mewes and Davies…a must-see for its sheer opulent decadence.

The wider estate has many trails through 1,400 acres of ancient woodland, offering easy strolls to more strenuous hikes across the Surrey Hills. 

Whether you decide to explore one of the four main estate walks directly from our campsite, visit the main House or relax by your firepit overlooking the Surrey Hills, the stunning grounds at Polesden Lacey offer a gorgeous and inspiring getaway.

Here at Embers we try to provide everything you might need to make your stay an authentic and comfortable one.

Our new oak shower and washrooms even come with underfloor heating, offering a little taste of luxury.

Be sure to feast on our freshly made wood-fired pizzas during your stay: keep an eye out for an email about 1 week before your arrival, as we’ll send out arrival instructions and a link to follow where you can pre-order pizzas for your upcoming stay (and because we do need to have a daily minimum and maximum pizza order number, it's a must to pre-order, and there may unfortunately be some evenings when pizzas aren’t available).

Our on-site shop provides hot drinks such as freshly ground coffee, fantastic ice cream in scoops or cones and camping essentials such as milk, fresh bread and snacks. We promise you won’t go hungry during your stay.
