A Beautiful Rural Location
National Trust Box Hill
Merrywood Park is so close to the National Trust countryside surrounding Box Hill that residents have their own private access onto the Headley Heath woodlands.
There are incredible views from the famous Salomon’s Memorial Viewpoint, from which you can see for twenty-five miles on a clear day, even glimpsing the South Downs in the distance. Well-resourced, the National Trust centre (open throughout the year) offers details of fantastic walks including the Stepping Stones, picnic facilities, a new Natural Play Trail for children, cycle trails and café.
Box Hill Village
Box Hill village centre offers plenty of facilities for residents of Merrywood Park. The village doctor’s, Hillside Surgery, is a dispensing practice. There is a small convenience store offering basic grocery shopping, milk and newspaper deliveries and a Post Office.
There is a Sainsbury’s and a Waitrose Supermarket in Dorking, approximately two miles from Box Hill.
Evenings out in Box Hill
We have heard good reports about the recently refurbished free house pub, The Tree on Box Hill, which has a nice menu for lunches and suppers. There is a Smith and Weston American-style diner in Box Hill village, for a more casual menu.
For a treat, you might like to try the elegant lounge bar or Emlyn Restaurant, both at the Burford Bridge Hotel, at the foot of Box Hill.
Merrywood Park at Box Hill offers a lovely blend of rural open spaces and attractive village amenities.
