Things to do this summer

Summer isn’t cancelled just yet! We’re planning to safely reopen Oatlands Park Hotel from 6th July 2020, and with lockdown measures easing, more and more outdoor attractions are opening up too.

With some of the best attractions in the South East of England right on our doorstep, we wanted to share the best things to do this summer in our local area, and what guests of Oatlands Park Hotel can expect when staying with us.

  1. Take a stroll through the Surrey countryside

Stretch your legs and take in the stunning scenery of our 10-acre estate. Our beautifully manicured gardens and widespread green lawns are the perfect setting for a pre-dinner stroll. As our historical hotel is built on the grounds of a Tudor Palace, you’ll literally be walking the same pathways as Kings and Queens. Top tip: Head down to Broadwater Lake to spot the ducklings!

  1. Enjoy a round of golf

Our Surrey location means the hotel is right next to some of England’s most prestigious golf clubs. Keen golfers can now play two-balls, three-balls or four-balls comprising of individuals from thr same or different households, as long as you keep two metres apart. Or, why not go solo and enjoy hitting some balls from the driving range?

The following golf courses are open to non-members but pre-booked tee times are essential:

Hampton Course Golf Club

Silvermere Golf Course

Pyrford Golf Course

Leatherhead Golf Course

Chobham Golf Course

  1. Bring the whole family

The UK’s most thrilling theme park, Thorpe Park, reopens from 4th July with a number of rides, activities and experiences open. Just a 7-mile drive away from the hotel, the whole family can enjoy rides, attractions and live events suitable for all ages, from water rides to rollercoasters. All guests will need to pre-book tickets to guarantee entry.

Skywalk Adventure Park is open for bookings with a target date of 7th July. With climbing nets, barrel crawls, rickety bridges and Zipwires through the trees, it’s a fun day out for all the family.

 

  1. And for the foodies

Denbies Wine Estate is the ultimate day out for wine-lovers! While the winery might be closed for now, you can still explore the vineyard estate and snack on hot and cold takeaway refreshments from ‘The Hatch on the Lawn’.

Relaxing with an Afternoon Tea and a chilled glass of Champagne is a little way to treat yourself post-lockdown. This summer we’re serving our quintessentially British Afternoon Tea in La Terrazza, so you can soak up the rolling Surrey countryside views as you sip on your cup of tea.

Our hugely popular Sunday Carvery at Oatlands Park Hotel has been given a new twist and will be served à la carte this summer in La Terrazza. Leave the cooking to us and sit back and enjoy succulent roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, roast chicken and stuffing or roast pork with apple sauce.
