Lingfield Village & around

Within walking distance of our retreat centre (1.2 miles / 1.93km), is the ancient village of Lingfield, surrounded by beautiful Surrey countryside. Known to be in existence at the time of the Domesday book, it was documented in the will of King Alfred "the Great", circa 871AD. Within this charming village (photos below) you will find many fine examples of medieval and Tudor houses as well as 18th century buildings.  

Further on is the village of Crowhurst ( 3.5 miles / 5.63 km) where in a small churchyard grows the famous Yew Tree with a girth of 10.01 metres, thought to be at least 1500 years old. The trunk is hollow with a wooden door in it that was placed there in 1820 and is very much linked with history having had what was believed to be an English Civil War cannonball discovered in it's side during the 19th century. 

Less than 10 minutes walk away from Claridge House is the village of Dormansland where you will find many beautiful walking routes, along with a post office, small shop and pubs.
