The
Experience

Exhausted urban dwellers will unwind in this good old-fashioned pub. Remote it may be and surrounded by miles of green fields but there’s lots going on. Llamas to visit, jazz in the garden, a pub quiz once a month and a lively, bustling atmosphere. Staff are friendly and chatty, head chef Sam Page turns out heart-warming pub favourites sourced from no further than 15 miles, is growing his own veg and herbs and does a bit of foraging to spice things up – nettles, wild garlic and blackberries.Meat is from Wakelings Butchers, ale is local, wine comes from Surrey vineyards and their own cider is home-pressed from Hambledon apples. Muddy booted walkers rub shoulders with locals of all ages while the big fire crackles merrily and the volume increases.In summer the fun spills out onto the terrace and the large rear garden – children will love tearing about and grown-ups will feel relaxed. Order a picnic and one of the llamas will carry the hamper along trails to a perfect spot along The Greensand Way. You can fall upstairs into bed too – bedrooms are not huge but they are fresh and pretty, some beamed, some panelled, all with rural views.

Location

The neighbourhood

This detached red-brick pub sits on its own in the village of Hambledon. Not much has changed here in a couple of hundred years and hikes along the magnificent Greensand Ridge are bracing. It runs for a hundred challenging miles with a clear scarp slope at the western end and a very high hill for this part of the world. The nearest town is Godalming where you'll find very handsome and expensive houses and some good independent shops and restaurants. Visit the famous Winkworth Arboretum or take a boat trip or a wander beside the river Wey.

Local points of interest from Sam and Danielle Page

  • First up we’d have to recommend our own llama treks which you can join just a few short steps from your accommodation! Our herd of twelve merry llamas will guide you along the stunning local trails for picnicking and trekking with a definite difference!
  • In the heart of The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty we are surrounded by some of the best walking, running and cycling routes in the South of England. Grab a map at the bar and choose your route!
  • For those who prefer pavement to trails the market towns of Haslemere, Farnham, Guildford and Petworth each offer their own charm, character and history with quaint streets, historic buildings and plenty of interesting shops and antiques to browse.
  • If you like your flora and fauna you’ll love a visit to both Ramster Gardens and The Winkworth Arboretum, famous for their rare and unusual trees and shrubs. A little further afield is RHS Garden Wisley, the flagship garden of the RHS.
  • For a glimpse into England’s rural past step back in time at Oakhurst Cottage, a restored 16th century labourers dwelling just a mile away. Rather more palatial is Petworth House home to the finest art collection in the care of the National Trust.
  • And there’s plenty of nearby entertainment with motoring and horse-racing at Goodwood, polo at Cowdray Park, spectacular flying displays at The Farnborough Airshow, The Guildford Book Festival and open-air summer concerts at Petworth.

Introducing

Sam and Danielle Page

Owner, Peter de Savary, grew up near here and has delighted all the local folk by returning to his roots (he lives nearby) and taking over and refurbishing what is now his very own pub, The Merry Harriers. It is run by a young couple - Danielle is front of house and Sam is in the kitchen.
