About YHA Tanners Hatch

This picturesque self-catering cottage in National Trust woodland is a relaxing rural retreat for a countryside activity break. Set in the Surrey Hills, with a network of footpaths and bridleways on the doorstep, the hostel is ideal for walking and cycling holidays. Nearby is Polesden Lacey, a regency mansion with stunning Edwardian gardens and Denbies Wine Estate, England’s largest single estate vineyard. Children love to feed the animals at Bocketts Farm in Fetcham.

Need to know

The hostel is only accessible by foot. It is situated 0.75 miles from the car park down an unlit and unsurfaced track, so please bring a torch. Sole use and large groups may be able to bring one vehicle to the hostel to unload (by pre-arrangement – please contact the hostel). There are low ceilings throughout and the washrooms are outdoors.

Towels are not supplied. They are available to hire from reception for £2 (+ £5 deposit) or please bring your own. Bedding is supplied.

Manager recommends

  • Enjoy the Tanners Hatch experience – chatting, singing or playing the guitar around the open fire with the owls hooting outside, and the hustle and bustle of daily life a long, long way away from this delightful rural retreat.
