Leaving the hop fields of the North Downs behind I peddle into Puttenham and past the Good Intent Pub. Further along, opposite the church is PUTTENHAM ECO CAMPING BARN , it is huge from the outside, although only a small part is actually converted for use as accommodation. I follow the stone track around the back and spot the familiar YHA sign.Read More

The friendly wardens will greet you with a warm welcome, and have a dozen interesting stories to tell about the history and charity of the barn.
And right by the kitchen door is a huge tub of herbs galore – appreciated by the bees as well as our guests!
