Our adventure kicks off in a small car park near the town of Haselmere, serving as a rendezvous point.
It's one of those beautiful winter mornings where the ground is sparkling with frost, and there is sunshine and clear blue skies as far as the eye can see.
As we wait for everyone to arrive, Sian, our hiking leader, hands around homemade pistachio cruffins and a flask of hot chocolate. The cruffins are so unbelievably delicious, I've already put an order in - you can check out Pinch of Sour here!
Once we are all briefed on the route, I lace up my boots and hit the trails.
The hike begins in the woodlands, dappled with sunlight filtering through the trees. There really is nothing better than the fresh scent of pine trees mixed with the sound of crunchy leaves underfoot.
We follow the trail which offers glimpses of hidden clearings and pass a field of very fluffy brown sheep, causing lots of excitement.
After a couple of hours, we stumble across some fallen trees, making a perfect spot for lunch. Everyone devours their food and shares with each other homemade baked goods and treats.
The scenery then transitions into heathland, offering panoramic views of the Surrey Hills. With conversation still in full flow, we continue to meander along the trail, which is covered in wildflowers and yellow gorse bushes
We then arrive back at the car park and say our goodbyes. Haselmere has such easy transport links from London. It's an hour by both car and train, making it the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
