Alderstead Heath Experience Freedom Glamping: Microlodges and play area

General

  • Glamping site in the Surrey Hills, 10 minutes' drive from Redhill
  • Less than an hour's journey from central London by train
  • Chessington World of Adventures half an hour's drive away

If you’re searching for a base for a varied holiday – think lazy woodland strolls one day, adrenaline-filled theme park adventures the next, and a bit of sightseeing in the capital for good measure – get yourself to Alderstead Heath Experience Freedom Glamping.

This peaceful and family-friendly site is surrounded by woodland in the Surrey Hills, 10 minutes’ drive from Redhill town centre. This is a particularly fine spot for cyclists and walkers, as it’s handy for the North Downs and close to a network of off-road trails, such as the Pilgrims’ Way, and themed walks including the Tilgate Forest Trail and Wandle Art Trail.

For a change of pace (and heart rate) there’s a clutch of theme parks conveniently close to base. Chessington World of Adventures is half an hour’s drive away – it also has a Go Ape adventure park, a Sea Life Centre and a zoo to really wear you (and, perhaps more importantly, the kids) out. If you haven’t quite got your adrenaline fix, Thorpe Park is about 40 minutes from the site.

It’s also easy to make a day trip to London while you’re here – catch a fast service at Redhill train station and you can be checking out the bright lights of the capital within an hour.

Take a break from full-pelt activity for some time on site: there's a playground and playing field here, plus a wifi connection to help plan shenanigans for the following day. A handy launderette is also on site to help sort any muck acquired on days out.

    The site was so well kept, lovely ground and the pods were a perfect base. There was 2 small parks for children which was as nice addition. Overall, we had a lovely peaceful break.

    Disliked: 

    Only problem with young children is other than the parks there isn’t many activities/places to go which are very local, that could be something for the future. A swimming pool would be great!!

From the manager...

Thank you for your review, and we are pleased to hear you had a peaceful break at Alderstead Heath.
The site is a great base for exploring the Surrey Hills and even to go into London, as well as being a peaceful place to stay, as you've said. We don't have any plans to add a swimming pool at the moment, but thank you for your feedback on the activities.

    It is soo quite and calming place. Well maintaned green areas are full of bunnies and squirrels. Pod is designed very well and has lots of storage area. I stayed here twice and it was spotlessly clean for the both time. Play area is so close to the pods so it is a huge advantage for the families with young kids. The staff, all of them really friendly and helpfull. We are looking forward to book again.

Thank you for your review, and we are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay. We, and the bunnies and squirrels, look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Beautiful location, so very peaceful and quiet. Loved the decking area and how well layer out the pod was. Perfect for a young family. Our two year old loved both play Park areas and all the grounds. She also loved watching all the bunnies and squirrels running around. Will 100% be staying again!! Staff were also very helpful and the facilities on sight were clean and looked after well.

    Disliked: 

    The only three small things that could make the stay even better is: better WiFi, ours kept disappearing. Smart TV to make accessing Netflix ect easier. And finally a memory foam mattress topper for the pull down bed.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review and your feedback, which we appreciate to help us constantly improve our product. We are working on improving and upgrading the WiFi across our sites, which can be affected by the local exchange and the site location, and hope to be able to offer a faster, more reliable service in the future. We also have a programme to replace the mattresses, but will also look into the idea of a topper. We love the fact your two year old loved the play area and watching the bunnies and squirrels. We hope to see you again soon.

    Fab little Staycation.
    This was our first time Glamping as a family the Pod we stayed in was perfect. It had all everything we needed and more. It was clean and well equipped. It was a perfect base for us and was lovely coming back after a packed day ( Go Ape, Boating, Wildlife Parks, Chessington) to relax, bbq and watch my boy play in the park or with his scooter, football in plenty of space.

Glamping is the new holiday abroad!10/08/2020

  • Camping pod (maximum 2 adults)

    These glamping pods are a home from home, in a peaceful setting. The staff are very friendly!

    The pod has everything

    A fridge with a tiny freezer area
    Television
    Radio system with ceiling speakers - was lovely to enter to music

    Lots of storage space, I loved the double bed which is stored in the wall once opened you have your bed side shelves with light switches and a place for your phone. When not in use the bed folds in to the wall and a sofa appears with an additional table underneath it!

    The kitchenette is well formed with a microwave, cleaning spray, washing up liquid already provided. The main cooking is done on the outside purpose built barbecue so bring lighting stuff! They provide coal in a self lighting kit for one day, so when planning, cook everything that requires cooking from raw / already seasoned. I didn't have a pan but was able to improvise with some metal containers and made scrambled eggs, delicious.

    Then bring meals that could be warned in the microwave

    The bunk bed is very comfortable, the stairs for the top bunk is stored on the bathroom door

    Bedding was provided for the top bunk and the double bed I could not find it for the bottom bunk, we had our own so no problem.

    The bathroom is great once again lots of storage space and a good size shower. Don't forget your toilet paper as you are camping after all lol!

    The outside deck is very large and has a table with a shade umbrella

    Extra storage box on the decking

    The bins are a few feet away near to the parking where you have an allocated bay

    We had such a fun time staying here, I also took away many great storage ideas for my home.

    Lots of rabbits and birds!

    This is probably the longest review I have ever written, because I hope you will find it useful

    Thanks to all of the staff

    Yvonne and family

    Nearly everything, great location, quiet, and immersed in nature. My son loved the playground and the friendly tabby cat visiting in the morning. Plenty to do nearby.

    Disliked: 

    The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the fridge in the pod is far too noisy for an open space sleeping accommodation. Everything else was to an excellent standard.

From the manager...

Thanks for leaving us a review Erica, we will check that fridge as it should not be noisy ~ Jo

Local attractions

Pack a picnic and get stuck into some family games at Reigate Hill and Gatton Park (10 minutes' drive), a pretty parkland with flower-scattered grasslands and shaded woodland. There’s history to be had here too, with Reigate Fort to discover, or you can continue your walk to Box Hill, a summit of the North Downs, and stop for a snack to reward your trekking efforts.

For more green scenes, the woodland and meadows at Happy Valley Park (15 minutes) are home to nature trails, horse rides and play areas.

Those who don’t mind a bit of damp can sign up for dinghy riding, windsurfing, kayaking and paddleboarding at Aqua Sports (10 minutes). Or stick to land for your thrills and check out Go Zorbing, a woodland zorbing track, and Go Paintball (10 minutes), a place that's sure to meet approval from competitive siblings.

There’s more adrenaline to be pumped on a flying experience at Redhill Aviation Flight Centre (15 minutes), and Surbiton Raceway (30 minutes) is a must-visit for speed demons.
