- Shared sleeping area, modern kitchen, local pubs and scenic walks
Puttenham Eco Camping Barn has simple overnight accommodation in south-east England for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, on a site with with a strong environmental emphasis.
The camping barn provides wardened accommodation, similar to but more basic than a youth hostel. It's in west Surrey on the North Downs Way and Sustrans Cycle Route 22, between Guildford and Farnham at a point not served by any youth hostels. The barn sleeping platform, divided into three areas, is the accommodation part of the site; there's no space for tents outside. Guests should bring their own sleeping bag or hire one from the site team.
The barn is an old listed building, sympathetically restored to be environmentally friendly and so that guests can see the traditional and sustainable construction methods used. Facilities on site include rainwater harvesting, solar electricity, solar hot water, a lockable cycle storage shed (designed by cyclists), and a communal kitchen and a shower-room.
The site does its best to cater for people with disabilities.

This is a top spot to bunk down for a night if you’re on a long-distance ramble or bike ride. If you fancy stopping for a little longer there are loads more walks and rides to be had through the Surrey hills, including the Christmas Pie cycle route from Farnham to Guildford, and a series of circular walks from Puttenham.
More eco-conscious days out can be had by hiring rowing boats from Farncombe Boat House or taking a horse-drawn narrowboat trip from Godalming. Or you might set out again on two wheels or two feet to visit local landmarks: the walled gardens and 16th-century house of Loseley Park are three miles away, and it’s worth dropping in to the Watts Gallery artists’ village enroute.
With all this hoofing about it’s likely you’ll have earned yourself a beer or two, so it’s a fine plan to set out for the Hogs Back Brewery three miles away in Tongham, where you can see the ale making in action and sample the wares.
