    About this property

    Nestled in an enviable location, this property provides the perfect base from which to explore this magnificent area.
    This delightful cottage, one of a pair, enjoys an extensive enclosed lawned garden, with a gentle fenced stream at the end. Boasting historic links that date back to the early 1800’s, it is a Georgian timber framed farm cottage, built for the workers on Birketts Farm. It is conveniently situated on the road into the village of Holmbury St Mary and is in the valley between popular walking areas Leith Hill and Holmbury Hill. The cottage has views across to Leith Hill and the stream at the bottom of the garden is one of the tributaries to the river Arun, which has its origin on Leith Hill. Inside, the cottage is warm and welcoming with lots of thoughtful personal touches throughout. The cosy living/dining room has a lovely woodburner in an inglenook surround, and the kitchen is well equipped with a breakfast table overlooking the front garden. The bathroom has a shower over bath and there is also a utility /boot room, ideal to put muddy boots or anoraks in after a day of walking. Upstairs there is a spacious master bedroom with views overlooking the countryside to the front and rear. The smaller twin bedroom is set up in an ‘L-shape’.

    Holmbury St Mary is considered one of the prettiest villages in Surrey and is believed to be the basis for the fictional village of Summer Street in E.M.Forster’s story, A Room with a View. Hurtwood Common, on Holmbury Hill, is the largest area of common land in Surrey and is the home to Mullards Space Science Laboratories, which is the largest space research group in the UK. It is perfectly situated for walking and cycling, and every year, is host to the Prudential Cycle Race in July, which comes past the front of the cottage.

    There are many popular country inns and pubs in the locality, and picturesque villages and hamlets to discover nearby include Shere, with its 13th-century church, tea rooms and duck pond. Also located close to the property are Abinger Hammer, Ockley and Forest Green. Dorking is about a 15-minute drive and is a delightful town with various amenities, plus a mainline station to London. Guildford, about a 20-minute drive, has a cathedral, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, large shopping centre and cosmopolitan eateries. In addition to the lido, indoor pool and Spectrum Leisure Centre, you can find Wild Wood Adventure Park, ideal for children of all ages.

    Wonderful walks can be enjoyed along the North Downs, and the most popular walks include Newlands Corner and Box Hill. Brocketts Farm makes a fun day out for the children, and there are easy motorway links to get to Chessington World of Adventure. Also, visit Hampton Court Palace, Denbies vineyard, which is the largest in the UK, and Gomshall Mill. If a day at the races is for you, there are many racecourses to choose from, including Sandown, Lingfied Park, Kempton, Brighton and Plumpton. For a day at the beach, Worthing or Brighton are about an hour away by car. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    "A lovely stay. Cosy, well-equipped cottage with real charm, in a super rural setting. Large, rolling garden which the children loved playing in (especially Pooh-sticks in the stream. The nearest local pub was only a short walk across the fields at the back. Super convenient for exploring Leith Hill, Box Hill, Polesden Lacey and many more beautiful areas for walks. Thank you for a lovely restful holiday!"

    "Most pleasant stay and very dog friendly. Such a beautiful location for some time out. Would love to visit again!"
    Linda ‐ 9 Mar 2018
    "I had a wonderful stay at this sweet, rural cottage with my newborn baby. Set in beautiful countryside, you are only a short drive away from some lovely towns and attractions. The cottage is cosy, and stylishly laid out, with its original, quirky character preserved. I should live to revisit in the summer time so as to enjoy the big, beautiful garden. The cottage was also warm, the bed comfortable, and the owners a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended."

    "A lovely small cottage, well furnished, comfortable and clean. Large garden area and well placed to visit areas of interest in the Surry Hills. Very helpful owners too."
