About Surrey Hills:
The Surrey Hills is one of the first areas in the country to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It covers 25% of Surrey and with a 6-mile hinterland around the AONB it covers most of Surrey except the north western parts of the County.
About Surrey Hills Enterprises:
