Pottery Activity Break

Enjoy the ultimate Surrey Staycation with The Merry Harriers. Unwind from the fast pace of digital life in the city with a two night break including lunch with llamas and a pottery class, Claire Waterhouse is a local potter who teaches from her studio in Milford, just 3 miles away from The Merry Harriers. From Throwing on the Potter's wheel to Lantern making, there is something for everyone to enjoy on this staycation with the llama trek too!
