The Perfect Easter Weekend?
With the promise of four days off work and temperatures hotter than Spain, make the most of the long Easter weekend by feeding the family with delicious seasonal produce and soak up springtime in Surrey.
Here’s Fetcham Park’s top suggestions for where to shop, eat and visit during Easter.
Easter isn’t Easter without hot cross buns, chocolate eggs and roast lamb. Our pick of the best places to buy local, artisan produce is Hungry Guest for delicious bread and hot cross buns. Available from Secretts Farm Shop, which sells other tempting goodies.
For local lamb and other meat, we love Sondes Place Farm and Conisbee & Son, in East Horsley, near Guildford, the oldest family butchers in Surrey. As well as lamb, their burgers are pretty tasty too – time for the first BBQ of the year?
Nothing beats a village pub on a spring day. Drop by the 2 AA Rosette Anchor in Ripley, The Cricketers or The Plough Inn, both in Cobham, and indulge in a leisurely pint or refreshing G ‘n’ T with the weekend newspapers. Bliss.
Step out in the sunshine and take a bracing walk to Box Hill. A popular beauty spot, this tranquil and peaceful walk offers superb views towards the south coast. A Victorian Fort stands on the summit and remnants of the British army’s defence against possible invasion in the Second World War still exist in the form of pill boxes and tank traps.

If you’re going to be dishing out the chocolate eggs, you might as well make the kids work for it! The annual Easter Egg Hunt at Hatchlands Park returns with an egg-cellent day out for all. Roam the picture-perfect gardens, follow to trails and solve the clues to claim Cadbury’s chocolatey treasure. From 14th – 17th April 11am-4pm. Visit: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/hatchlands-park
Tranquillity on your doorstep
Returning to work after the long weekend may leave you feeling a little deflated. For business residents at Fetcham Park, we have acres of secluded and tranquil gardens to enjoy. Eat lunch outside, take a walking meeting, or simple breathe in the fresh air on a coffee break.
Have a wonderful Easter.
