Why stay here ...

With convenient access from the M25 motorway, and located near Merstham, Redhill, Alderstead Heath Club Campsite has a picturesque setting that you and your family will find ideal for a relaxing and peaceful holiday break. The site is surrounded by rolling wooded countryside and situated near the Pilgrims Way, so there are many lovely walking trails - in particular across the North Downs - to explore at your leisure. The caravan and motorhome site is perfect for dog walkers; you can pick up details about the Downlands Circular Walk from the site entrance. The Fox pub can also be reached by foot and is approximately 40 minutes away. The site offers the best of both worlds - its proximity to London also makes this site a great base to explore the non-stop activities of the capital.

Golfing enthusiasts will be delighted as there are several golf courses in the immediate area. The campsite is also an ideal location for exploring much of Sussex, Kent and Surrey and the surrounding coastal areas. Shops and local amenities can be found in nearby Caterham. For further details on this please ask the site warden on arrival or during your stay.

There's an abundance of attractions and day trips to choose from, options include family theme parks such as Chessington World of Adventures, National Trust properties such as Chartwell, some beautiful gardens including RHS Wisley, and several racecourses. Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking is another nearby attraction that is well worth the visit. Whether you’re camping or touring, this campsite is a great way to explore Surrey.

Peaceful perfect Location

I simply can't concur with the last 2 reviews. A warm welcome awaits you at this site from the wardens. We arrived yesterday the 1/9/20 to a picture perfect site. It is very peaceful and tranquil. Very well maintained by the staff. The first night was very quiet no signs of any "alleged" travellers quite the opposite in fact. Large pitches well spaced out lots of room. We are in larger than average Motorhome 7.4 metres no issues getting into the site just avoid Dean Lane our sat nav took us the correct way. A great location for walking and cycling. Dog friendly and great for children as well. A nice play park and wide open spaces for them. I would highly recommend this site.

Another Great Stay 28/08 - 01/09

In reference to the pervious review, we cannot comment on all aspects of the review however the reference to the long grass the reason for this is when the grass is cut short and then put under the stress of heat and groundsheets coving it, vans / cars driving on it it does not respond well ( my job is looking after sports pitches ). As far as the loud music is concerned that was not coming from the site it was an illegal rave taking place in the woods adjacent to the site so apart from reporting it to the Police which I know they did, there wasn't alot the wardens could do. Good Covid-19 procedures in place, we have visited this site many times and love it and will be returning soon.

Potentially very nice but ruined

I usually read reviews and take very little notice until I visit a site for myself. This site has a lot of potential and the modern facilities are lovely with great walks. Without the main aspect that I shall mention shortly the site was let down by 1. Police visits on two occasions. Unsure why they visited but does make you feel uneasy 2. Grass very long and clearly has not been cut for a long time 3. Yes there are travellers. But to be fair they were very pleasant whilst our children shared the playground. 4. Dangerous metal gate to playground. 2 of my children were hit on the head by strongly sprung gate and sadly the family on the pitch adjacent had a vist to hospital because their son was badly hurt with a large cut on face due to the gate. The largest concerning point, one of which I thought I would never encounter whilst staying at a club site was the incredibly loud music being played from 8pm until 11.10pm. At 10pm I had had enough and decided to visit the warden who I could not find. The music was so loud that I could here it across the whole site. It was coming from a group camped in tents down the far end of the site. There were guests all standing outside their units trying to find out where it was coming from. Considering this is a very large site, to hear it everywhere shows you the volume it was being played at. As I previously mentioned, I usually take no notice of reviews and never thought I’d feel obliged to write one myself, as I sometimes feel the comments made are fussy and people should lower their expectations. But in this occasion. Wow. Never thought I’d encounter this. Will not be back to this site. Such a shame as it has potential to be lovely. I am expecting the usual copied and pasted response from the club that says a lot without saying anything that you can see from the plethora of negative reviews about this particular site.

Lovely site

We stayed here for a week and found the site very peaceful, clean and well maintained. The barriers into and exiting the site are very easy as they have traffic lights indicating when to proceed. We met up with our daughters who were camping in tents and the site staff went out of their way to be helpful as they were arriving late after work. We found nothing was too much trouble and the the staff were all very friendly. The site is in a lovely area, we visited Box Hill and Epsom Downs, lovely for dog walking. We will be booking this site again next summer for our family get together as its the best we've stayed on. Thank you!

Uncomfortable stay

I stayed for five nights and my stay had an edge to it thanks to a "white van" family. They pitched across two grass pitches, drove fast the wrong way around the site, threw loads of rubbish into the hedge, left their Jack Russells tied up and barking one afternoon, had two visits from the police. One of the dogs bit another camper on his leg when he went to talk to them, the father called me an idiot because I didn't want to sell my motorhome to him! I like the site and the wardens did what they could but I wouldn't rush back. Make the site members only or charge a refundable "damage refund" may be a way to change the customer base. This was the first time that I have warned a new arrival about who they were parking up next to - they moved pitches.

 

Comment from the Club:

Thank you for your review and I’m sorry you feel that your stay was uncomfortable as a result of other site users' behaviour. As an inclusive organisation, and bearing in mind the law on these matters, the Club do not discriminate against any particular individuals or groups and membership is open to all. With the size of membership that we enjoy, which helps fund the facilities everyone benefits from, diversity across our membership is inevitable. Any unwelcome behaviour from members or guests is always handled appropriately and where necessary, suitable follow up action is taken. We hope that you consider returning to site in the future.
