Cosy, contemporary barn cottage set in a stunning courtyard garden situated in a peaceful location in the heart of the Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Nearby there are country pubs, restaurants and wonderful walks bordering National Trust land. Well positioned for Gatwick Airport, the M25 (15 minutes drive) and the express train to London, 10 minutes drive to the nearby market town of Dorking and it's many antiques shops, a leisurely 45 minutes drive to Brighton.

The space

Located in wonderful countryside, our cottage is in the heart of a small and tranquil hamlet community. It offers the ultimate chill out and unwind country space, no street lighting lit by the stars; ideal for Christmas and the New Year, a weekend away or holiday, a walking or cycling break, a business trip, a bolt hole before or after international trips.

There is an extendable dining room table which can be used in the kitchen or sitting room or enjoy dinner in the courtyard garden.

The two bedrooms have comfortable double beds; decorated in a country classic calm and welcoming style, both relaxing and peaceful. The bedrooms have sloping walls and may not be suitable for everyone. There is also a small dressing room large enough for a portable cot or a Z bed.

This was our second 4 day visit within a month and fully met our expectations. I can guarantee you will struggle to find a more accommodating host who is always on hand without being intrusive. This is a delightful cottage with a beautiful courtyard garden, and water feature, that are illuminated at night. Set in the most picturesque countryside the views are magnificent and wild Deer can be viewed roaming free in the distance. Far more provided than ever expected that makes for a great stay. Already planning our next visit!

My friends and I had a great one night stay in Marion’s cottage. Perfect space with everything we needed for a weekend away. Marion was really quick to respond and gave us great tips for local places to visit and eat. Would highly recommend - thanks Marion!

Marion and James were wonderful hosts, enthusiastically making my family and me (wife, 4YO, 1.5YO) feel welcome and providing us with interesting information about the local area. The apartment was spacious and spotless and fridge thoughtfully stocked with a variety of breakfast items, together with coffee and tea. We greatly enjoyed our stay and thoroughly recommend this fine establishment.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough. The hosts, Marion and Jamie, were on hand to offer the friendliest of welcomes combined with a welcome pack that was totally unexpected but greatly appreciated. The cottage itself is set in the most idyllic of locations with a beautiful secured courtyard garden and magnificent country views to the front of the main house. Unlike many similar lets this property offers space and comfort and all the amenities to provide a real home from home experience. Toiletries, towels and many extras are provided, all inclusive, making for a great experience. I have stopped in star rated hotels costing a lot more and providing a lot less. At the time of writing we are already planning our second stay. Would unreservedly recommend to both family and friends!! Many thanks Marion & Jamie.
