"A wonderful location to enjoy a family day out…"
Polesden Lacey was chosen by Mrs Grenville, an ambitious Edwardian hostess, as the ideal place for entertaining. Owned by the National Trust, the property is surrounded by breathtaking views of the Surrey Hills.
It’s the perfect place to have a picnic in the warmer months. Or you can just grab one of the comfy chairs and admire the landscape around you. You can see why Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, had her honeymoon here.

"A wonderful location in the countryside…"
A wonderful estate set in the peaceful Surrey countryside. A great place to take the kids to let off steam. Would be good for a picnic and ball game on a summer day.Read moreLess

I took my grandchildren aged 7 and 5 to this national truct property during half term.
They had a brilliant spooky trail for the children with quizzes which involved quite a long but very pretty walk around the extensive grounds.
Lots of conkers and beech nuts to pick up as well as lovely leaves. We were lucky with the weather but there are lots of walks along tree avenues which would keep you reasonably dry.
Good outdoor playground.
We had lunch there and they do children's selections forRead moreLess
"Beautiful location in the Surrey Hills. Can picnic on the…"
Beautiful location in the Surrey Hills. Can picnic on the lawns and also play ball games in the extensive grounds. Little adventure playground in the woods and lovely estate walks if you're feeling energetic! My children are always fascinated by the pet cemetary (weird!) and I love the rose garden, croquet lawn and herbaceous borders.
Really lovely day out in the countryside(and we haven't even explored in the house yet!)Read moreLess
"What a fabulous spring day out. The views of Surrey…"
What a fabulous spring day out. The views of Surrey Hills from the lovely sloping lawn in front of the house are worth the trip in itself, but there are lots of great picnic spots, a walled garden, challenging nature playground and that doesn't include the house and surrounding countryside.
The house is full of objets d'art, so isn't the best for young ones, but my 6 year old and I enjoyed the trail. The National Trust cafe and farm shop are both very nice, and there are other places to get ice creams or sausages strategically placed.
We plan to head back to explore the walks in the countryside.Read moreLess
