A unique rural campsite in Surrey, a stone's throw from London's Zone 6

The Barn KT9 in Surrey's Rushett Farm is described as "in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of everywhere." Never has a description for a campsite been more apt, given the site's close proximity to London — it's just 10 miles from the centre of the capital, a stone's throw away from Zone 6 — but in rural surroundings with not a single oppressive tower block in sight. For city-dwellers, few campsites are as thoughtful and considered when it comes to providing a break away from the bustle of modern life. With its staunch focus on wellness, campers are expected to leave rejuvenated by way of its carefully selected on-site personal trainers, with it also providing a unique and morale-building getaway for businesses looking to treat their teams.

The Barn provides three pre-pitched bell tents as its glamping options, each boasting a double bed with all linen included. Glamping is available on Tuesday nights, along with Friday and Saturday weekend stays, though The Barn will do its best to accommodate those looking for different dates. There is space here to bring your own tent, too, while additional bell tents can be provided should you need them. Hot showers and compost loos are available, while each glamping tent is equipped with its own BBQ, and fire pits are available, too.

The Barn KT9 is best viewed as a retreat, both for the individual and for the team. Families and friends can enjoy the peaceful surroundings and impressive roster of food and drink, with specialty coffee being brewed by Surrey's own Rockhill Brothers Coffee Company from Thursday to Sunday, while a rotation of local street food businesses are on-hand for evening meals, including delicious calzones cooked each Tuesday. Personal training is also available to book with expert trainers, providing an experience you're not going to find at your local mainstream gym. Alongside small group PT sessions for everyone, guests can book postnatal and prenatal uplift sessions, helping both the pregnant and recently pregnant among your group embrace some much-needed winding down.

While families and friends can stay in this dog-friendly, kid-friendly site, it is also ideal for events, with two venues accommodating large groups for weddings or corporate team-building exercises. The Hangar is, as its name suggests, a converted blister hangar with room with for 200 guests under cover. The Barn is 50 square metres and spacious enough for 50 guests, complete with breakout rooms, loos, and showers. For corporate events, guests can expect to begin their day with an ice bath and sauna session, punctuating their relaxation with delicious local lunch provided by The Surrey Hills Deli or an on-site BBQ. And, of course, it can all be topped off with some beers or wine overlooking the Surrey countryside.



Each Bell Tent comes with it's own Weber BBQ and firepit and access to our warm showers and compost loos. We have additional events spaces on the farm which can be hired, both indoors and outdoors, as well as space to bring your own tents, or hire additional bell tents.  From Thursday to Sunday we have the brilliant Rockhill Brothers coffee on site serving up the best flat whites of your life with top cakes and even dog treats. In the evenings we have a rotation of top local street food businesses on site, keep an eye out for the timetable. 

Suitable For

For 2021, we can't accommodate caravans and campervans, but keep your eyes peeled for 2022 as this may change. We are very dog and child friendly. If there are other campers on site, please keep noise to a minimum after 11pm. 


If you are feeling energetic, you can ride a bike off road to the south coast from the farm without touching a road. More locally, Ashtead Common, Epsom Downs, Oxshott Heath, Esher Common and Headley Heath are all excellent both on bike or on foot. Chessington World of Adventures is a 10 minute walk down the road. 

Food & Drink

The Star and Shy Horse in Malden Rushett are the nearest pubs, whilst a 20 minute walk over the Commons gets you to either Ashtead or Epsom depending which direction you head, where you'll find a selection of great pubs and restaurants.
