Juniper Hall is set in a quiet wooded valley in an unspoilt area of the chalk North Downs and at the edge of Box Hill, Surrey.  A superb country house dating back from the 17th Century, there is plenty to explore both in the house and estate during your family holiday including the butterfly garden, walled garden, ice house and paddock that is home to our bee hives. 

The large lawns are great for playing on (sports equipment can be borrowed).  There are several communal areas which are great for the evenings or if the rain comes down, that has TV, games and lots of books to read.

We have a range of bedrooms from twin, triple or small dormitories.  Therefore, no matter how big or small, we can cater for your Real Family Holiday!
