Hampton Estate


Welcome to Hampton Estate, a family owned and run traditional agricultural Estate located on the southern slopes of the Hogs Back within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Our 2250 acres of historic parkland, grazing meadows, arable fields, award winning woodlands and traditional farmyards form the backbone of the Estate which is home to a myriad of businesses and opportunities. Hampton Estate thrives on its rural diversity yet retains its beauty and original agricultural purpose. Explore our website to learn more.

ESTATE ACTIVITIES

Hampton Estate is home to numerous interlinking activities which have all evolved from the original farming ethos.

Pedigree beef, wild venison, rabbits, sausages, pies logs and hops are all available for sale from the estate.

Hops

Our hop gardens in Puttenham grow ‘Fuggles’ hops for beer production which are used by brewers throughout the country including Harvey’s of Lewes, The Black Sheep Brewery, Masham and The Hogs Back Brewery. We also sell decorative hop garlands, during the hop picking season (August/September) direct from the hop garden.

We are delighted that traditional English beef, sirloin and rump steak, joints and high quality, succulent mince is available direct from the estate. These will be available to pre order and collect at the monthly Beef Collection Days

Venue Hire

Myrtle’s Courtyard is a very pretty cluster of early Victorian farm buildings nestling in the historic parkland of the Hampton Estate. The former milking parlour (1000sq ft internally) provides an attractive meeting/dining room with two large woodburning stoves supplying heat. In summer the large sliding doors open directly onto the courtyard. There is a small functional kitchen, wcs including disabled and lots of parking close by.

There is a considerable array of one off or annual events held throughout the year including cycling days, Woodland Woggle, school and scout camping events  and farm walks.

Filming Locations

Accessible to most film studios, and privately owned, both Universal Studios and Warner Brothers have used the Estate as major sets for recent films. Robin Hood (Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe) and Jack The Giant Killer.
