Pubs like the Stag on the River, Eashing, where you can take lunch beside the millstream, or at the Wiremill at Lingfield overlooking a lake.
Tranquil it may be, but this beautiful county is not short on things to do either. As well as countless free museums, historic houses, gardens and outdoor pursuits, it boasts two of the country’s biggest theme parks.
