The Chantry Wood campsite is situated on the North Downs within Chantry Wood, just three miles from the ancient town of Guildford with its Castle Keep, famous high street, parks and gardens.

The site is bordered on three sides by woodland and hedgerows. The southern perimeter is open, permitting extensive and beautiful views over Albury Vale and Chilworth Village to Blackheath and, in clear weather, to the South Downs beyond.

The campsite is approached by a gently winding forest track, just one of many, by which 190 acres of Chantry Wood may be explored. The numerous species of trees include English oak, beech, ash and American redwoods as well as evergreen spruce, cypress and fir. The woods are managed to encourage bird and insect life to flourish.

Piped water is available on site, as are brick cubicles for chemical toilets. Chilly evenings may be passed pleasantly around the designated fire sites.

Shops, supermarkets, post office and telephone are to be found close by in Guildford town.

The Chantry Wood camp site is open all year round.

Youth groups must be supervised at all times by responsible adults. Arrival should be between 12pm and 5pm and departure by 11.30am.

Campsite rules

We hold custodial responsibility for the woods, so it is important that hire of the campsite be subject to icon Site Rules [200.96KB] which should be read carefully. The Site Rules are designed to ensure enjoyable and safe camping, as well as the availability of the woods in the future.

Please note that Chantry Wood Campsite's maximum capacity is 100.
