Tilford Village & the Surrounding Area
Right on the door step of the resort is the village of Tilford which has its own Rural Life Centre, considered to be the largest countryside museum in the South of England. The exhibits on show comprise of a large number of devices and tools which have been used for farming over the past 150 years.
It also showcases what life has been like over the years in Tilford Village with wartime exhibits, Victorian domestic activities and also has an old kiln light railway which is operated by enthusiastic volunteers.
If you’re simply looking a for bit of fresh air then Tilford also plays host to some fantastic walking routes suitable for both man and dog. Don’t forget to take a hamper and blanket with you on your walk as the nearby Frensham Common offers beautiful inland beaches, making it the ideal location for soaking up some sun whilst tucking in to a snack.
Or why not head to Frensham Trout Fishery? Just 2 miles from Tilford Woods, it boasts 6 well-stocked lakes, nestled in a beautiful wooded valley.
If you are looking for some fine dining, this is also available in Tilford when you head to the Duke of Cambridge village pub which is a short 2 minute saunter from the park. With scrumptious offerings you can rest assured that nobody will leave feeling unsatisfied.
Farnham & Beyond
Just under 5 miles up the road is the local market town of Farnham. From here you can navigate the narrow streets of this quaint town to discover all sorts of hidden treasures and perhaps pick up a memento from your trip away.
The town also plays host to many other pieces of historical and cultural interests, such as the historic castle, abbey ruins and culturally-enriching museum.
Farnham is also well connected to the surrounding area with its train station, which has direct lines to London and can be reached in approximately 50 minutes. This means that the many attractions which are on offer in the country’s capital are within easy reach for holiday makers who are staying at Tilford Woods.
Simply park your car up at Farnham station, grab the direct train to the capital and explore the shops at Oxford Street, catch a show in the West End or spot a famous face or two at Madame Tussauds.
The fact that the capital is so easily reachable from the resort, makes Tilford Woods a holiday resort for anyone who is looking for an alternative to a London city break, where you can still take advantage of the attractions without being forced to stay in a city centre hotel.
Family Friendly Attractions
There are also plenty of family friendly attractions within driving range which do not require a trip to London.
Quite close to home is Birdworld in Farnham which is a 26 acre attraction, and is one of England’s largest bird parks with over 150 species of bird on site. Also available at this attraction is Underwater World and the Jenny Wren Children’s Farm, where kids can pet and feed the animals. This really is a great destination for all family members, regardless of their age.
The more adventurous amongst you will also be interested to hear that Thorpe Park is just a 40 minute drive from the resort. Brave the Saw ride and Nemesis Inferno or have a slightly less adrenalin fuelled experience on the Angry Birds 4D experience.
