OverviewBuilt in the 1920s in a chalet style and situated about five miles from Dorking in Surrey, this lovely bunkhouse nestles on the lower northern slopes of Leith Hill, the highest point in south east England. Although London is only thirty miles away, the setting of tranquillity and beauty provides an ideal location for groups to experience rural Surrey at its finest. Walkers can directly access the Greensand Way plus other local way marked trails and there are many bridleways and byways over Leith Hill and the surrounding area on which cycling is permitted. The bunkhouse is ideal for recreational, educational and corporate groups that are looking for self catering accommodation as well as being a perfect base for hikers and cyclists. The bunkhouse has a well equipped kitchen and larder whilst the dining/communal area has a dining table for 12. There are also comfy chairs, and an open fire (free wood and fire starting material provided). The three bedrooms have hand basins and there are plenty of showers. Outside there is a well manicured unenclosed garden next to the bunkhouse with picnic tables and barbecue. The bunkhouse closes over Christmas and New Year.

Not Henman Hill but Henman Bunkhouse
July 11th 2019
Once Wimbledon is over and talk of Henman HIll subsides, Henman Hill Bunkhouse in Surrey Hills AONB will still be welcoming guests to the charms of it’s swiss chalet architecture.
Owned by the National Trust, Henman Bunkhouse is unique, charming and extremely accessible from London and indeed from Wimbledon. Like it’s tennis namesake it is linked to a hill. This one is Leith Hill, (the highest in South East England). The Bunkhouse sits on the lower slopes of Leith Hill and gives you immediate access to the many byways and bridleways that criss-cross the area. Why not escape the crowds, the fumes and the traffic and treat yourself, your friends and family to a rural escape on London’s doorstep.
