Length: 5.6 mi • Est. 3 h 2 m
A circular walk from Boxhill and Westhumble Station in the village of Westhumble, passing through part of the Polesden Lacey Estate, Ranmore Common and Denbies Vineyard. The route follows part of the North Downs Way National Trail. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. This is a hilly walk with several long uphill stretches: make sure you stop regularly to appreciate the impressive views! Parts of the route can get muddy so stout boots or shoes are recommended. You will need to negotiate many gates/kissing gates but there are no stiles or steps on route. A couple of the short fields you cross may be holding sheep so take particular care with dogs. There are a few sections of road walking along quiet lanes so take care of any traffic at these points. Allow 3 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, there are a few options. There is a cycle shop cafe at Boxhill and Westhumble Station and The Stepping Stones pub is 300m from the station (turn right along Westhumble Street to reach this). Denbies Estate vineyard, about two thirds of the way round, has a restaurant and cafe which is open to the public. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Boxhill & Reigate. This walk follows public rights of way that cross private and National Trust land.

An undulating walk from Ranmore Common in the Surrey Hills, through part of the National Trust estate of Polesden Lacey. There are good views of the Mole Gap, London and, on a clear day, the South Downs. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council.

You can take an optional detour to enter the grounds or house of Polesden Lacey, but admission fees apply for this (free for National Trust members). Allow 2.5 hours, with extra time for stops or detours. There are no pubs or shops along the route. There are toilets and a tearoom within the grounds of Polesden Lacey (admission fees would apply for this). Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill & Reigate. The Polesden Lacey Estate and parts of Ranmore Common and Denbies Hillside are owned by the National Trust. This walk follows public rights of way over private and National Trust land.

This circular trail covers varied terrain including beautiful landscapes, countryside and woods. It starts and finishes in a vineyard, what’s not to like? Denbies Vineyard comprises 627 acres, 200 of which are woodlands, and includes 10 estate houses. The vineyards are situated on the North Downs, in the town of Dorking, with its famous chalky soil, in a protected valley of south facing slopes (AONB). A total 265 acres have been planted which is three times the size of any other in the United Kingdom and is now producing up and coming British-grown sparkling and table wines, which are now gaining international regard.
