Perfectly situated just outside the Ultra Low Emission Zone, Alderstead Heath is the ideal base for visiting both London (just 35 minutes away on the train) and the surrounding North Downs countryside. Spend a few days enjoying the daytime and evening entertainment of the big city and a few more hiking or biking the local trails, what’s more at the end of the day you can return to rest at this surprisingly rural and peaceful countryside campsite.

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. You can pick up details about the Downlands Circular Walk from the site entrance. The Fox pub can also be reached by foot, approximately 40 minutes away. 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 manager 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.

All pitches are level at Alderstead Heath Club Campsite to ensure your maximum comfort and convenience; with pitches for camping, caravanning and motorhoming available.

Love this site

Alderstead Heath Club Campsite
We just purchased our motorhome and we wanted to try it out for a few days so we booked into the site of Alderstead Heath, What Delightful place, very Clean! Very well stocked shop , What can I say? Tina and the whole team were outstanding throughout our stay very helpful very welcoming and nothing was a problem., I’d like to say we will be back ASAP and what a great idea having the fish and chip van and the pizza van and another night. Maybe you need to rethink the pizza one but the fish and chip van was perfect. I wanted skinless fish, The guy stood there and skin in front of me absolutely beautiful food thank you guys Allen Lisa and Family, See you soon

Overall the impression was of a unloved site.

Alderstead Heath Club Campsite
Not the best club site we have visited, when we booked in we were not told that the bottom toilet block was not in use, so after we had set up near it, we were faced with a longer walk to the top block ( which was kept in good condition by the staff). However this could not be said of the site in general, the grass between the hard standings was very long (as it was the grass pitches). There was weeds growing on all the hard standings. The approach drive was in a very bad state of repair, it certainly did not need the speed humps the pot holes did that.

Returning visitor

Alderstead Heath Club Campsite
We try to visit at least 3 times a year for long weekends/mini breaks as it is only 16 miles from home, well 19 miles once you've accessed the site by 'doing a u-turn' at the roundabout on the A23 (London bound), just past Harwoods JLR garage :). The Site Directory used to recommend this route by leaving the M25 at junc 7 onto the M23 London bound/Hooley as I personally think it is easier than negotiating junction 8 Reigate Hill. Obviously NEVER enter the site up Dean Lane, very narrow and steep, unsuitable for caravans, MOHOs and trailers. We pitched up on the top part of the site close to the top facilities block (the only one open at the moment), the site was tranquil and the site management were very friendly (Gareth in particular) and welcoming and it was great to see a small shop in the main reception once more. We experienced very little if any road noise from the M23/M25 on our pitch, the odd helicopter came across no doubt heading to Redhill aerodrome. The site is a little remote in terms of walking access to places to eat and drink, there is a small convenience store in Netherne-on-the-Hill which is about a 15 min walk away through pleasant fields and woodland. We often stock up before getting to site or when we pop out, as the weather was amazing we had BBQ's and homecooked pizzas all done outside. The site would benefit from visiting food vans on regular Fri and Sat nights, but understand if occupancy of the pitches is low then it might not be the best place for plenty of business. A few tent campers were there over the weekend we stayed in mid-May 2024. As the grounds of the site are so large and good walks immediately from the site into the North Downs and Happy Valley then it is a great site just to relax at and walk from without using the car. One thing we were surprised at is why the Club no longer allows seasonal pitches at this site?

Visit out of season

Alderstead Heath Club Campsite
We visited over a long weekend in late April and were surprised how empty the site was. 4 grass pitches and 26 hardstands in use. That meant we had loads of space. I would not like to visit in peak season because some of the grass pitches look very close to some of the hardstands. April is a pleasant time to visit when the bluebells are in flower in the patches of trees around the site. The site seemed devoid of people. Several of the pitches had work vans that weren’t there during the day. It’s the first time I’ve been to a Club site that didn’t have a friendly atmosphere. My main negative point is access. We booked the site because it is so close to the M23 and M25; you hear the constant roar of the motorways because the M23 is only half a mile away. But you have to drive several miles to get to the motorways. We tried several routes to/from the motorways but all seem circuitous.
