WaterColour is located at the edge of the east end of the Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Locally there are gentle strolls around our own lagoons, the marshes, Mercers Lake or nearby Spynes Mere. The 153-mile North Downs Way comes just past the village where you can pick up the trail, to the next village or as far as Farnham or Canterbury. For a more detailed picture of the walking and cycling opportunities in the area check out the Surrey Hills website.


The National Cycle Route 21 is part of the UK National Cycle Network and runs from Greenwich through to Groombridge and Eastbourne in East Sussex, and can be picked up from just outside of WaterColour. Some sections of the route around WaterColour are unsuitable for road bikes.
