4. After a further ½ mile you will come to a track leading off to the LEFT on a RIGHT-HAND bend and opposite some stables.

6. Follow this (bumpy) track for about ¼ mile until you come to a Y junction with a cottage on the LEFT.

The basecamp was purpose converted some years ago to a high standard with 3 bedrooms, 2 washrooms, a lounge and a kitchen/dining room, with open fire. The basecamp is next to the Warden's house but otherwise is in the extensive wooded hills to the South of Dorking.
