About the property

Sleeps 6/7 in 3 double rooms with en-suites, in Surrey village of Ewhurst

The barn is a country-lovers dream, where old oak timbers mix sympathetically with green oak to form a fantastic living space with a massive inglenook fireplace and where the galleried landing looks down on the comfy settees near a friendly wood burner and next to a spacious dining area and newly fitted oak kitchen.

There are three beautiful double bedrooms with full en-suite facilities. One with bath and two with shower. There is an additional folding guest bed or cot for children.

Step outside onto your barn patio where you are surrounded by open fields and views complemented by the newly restored farm buildings, including a picturesque stable block with clock tower.

A 3 minute stroll takes you into Ewhurst village where you will find pubs serving food, shops & village sports facilities. The old parish church adds to the feeling of history you sense when visiting. Ewhurst also has a cricket club and Hurtwood Country Polo Club. Guildford, Cranleigh & pictureque Shere are nearby.

Well equipped character barn in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 small children for over a week and had a wonderful time. The barn has a lovely open plan living space with a very well equipped kitchen and was easy to live in. We hosted a few friends whilst we stayed too, and one day had 10 adults with 9 young children racing around the grounds outside; all commented on what a great place it was and with the doors open onto the garden it didn't once feel crowded.

The local shop is within a five minute walk and has most basics, with bigger supermarkets and shops within a few minutes drive.

The local area is stunning, although as the barn is in a small village along many narrow country roads it can take a while to drive to places. Lots of footpaths and countryside to explore though right on the doorstep if you don't want to travel too far.

The only issue we had during our stay was that the beds in both the downstairs bedrooms all seemed to be less than full size single beds. They were fine for children but only just about ok for tall adults, so if you plan to use the downstairs bedrooms be aware of this. The Double bed upstairs is fine.

Other than that I'd recommend fully for a relaxing break and would happily go back again.

Owner's Response: Richard, Caroline and family really seemed to enjoy their stay. They took full advantage of the real upsides that comes with the generous reception area that the beautifully restored barn offers together with the stunning outdoor space. Their friends and family loved just being in the barn and garden. In spite of that, they explored the Surrey Hills, recently declared an area of outstanding natural beauty. I recommended the local pubs that have excellent food and an enclosed garden, suitable for young children. The family also took their children to the village children's playground, which is just a short five minute stroll. They are a nice family to have stay. We would be pleased to see them return.

Lovely Christmas break

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over Christmas. The barn was a perfect place to unwind. Location was very good for us. Felt away from the hustle bustle but was still very close to Cranleigh and Shere (both have restaurants, shops) and London...if you feel you need a little action. Loved Pitch Hill and Leith Hill which are close can go for nice walks on the public footpath right outside the barn. Took a day trip to Hampton Court which was also very close. The cottage itself is well equipped and we loved the wood burning stove. The owner was very helpful and attentive. Helped us pick a few places to eat and his choices were very good! We enjoyed chatting with Ian and if we find ourselves needing another getaway in this area we would definitely stay again at the barn.

Owner's Response: Susan, Tony and family spent Christmas and New year 2018 in our refurbished period barn. On arrival, they loved the barn, which although period, has an open plan layout which suits young family living. They planned their time carefully, and tried several of the array of pubs and restaurants I recommended, which they seemed to enjoy. The whole family were excellent guests, we wish them well and hope they may return to visit lots more of the local and London feast of attractions in easy reach of their holiday country retreat. Thanks Susan and family, see you again Regards, Ian Mills

Lovely house/barn

  • 5 of 5

The house/barn was lovely and had everything we needed. Since it is not near a busy road and lots of open space , made it a safe place for the kids to run outside.Location was great. Within a short walk was a great playground for young children. The next village was easily gotten to by walking the 2 miles or taking the bus. Lots to do for kids in Cranleigh.

Owner's Response: Carol and family came to UK from USA to attend a course. The grandparents looked after their children in the refurbished period barn whilst the parents studied hard. They took full advantage of the local walks in the Surrey Hills and our local facilities including local pubs with enclosed children friendly gardens. The children used the local swimming and gym facilities. They all loved the beautiful rural location and they took full advantage of the open plan layout of the barn. They were a great family to have as guests, and we hope we may see them again.

Owner's Response: Suzanne, family and friends took full advantage of the local gems hidden in the beautiful Surrey Hills. They loved Shere, which is a truly picturesque village with shops, tea shop and really English pubs, as well as a lovely spot for children to feed the ducks. They also visited Denbies Winery, where you can have a tour of the wine making facilities and enjoy tasting prize-winning UK wines. The winery also offers full lunches or tea and cakes. The whole family loved the barn which has a huge outdoor space surrounded by country walks and a plentiful supply of local pubs with enclosed gardens. Thanks for staying with us Suzanne and co. We look forward to seeing you next time.

Thornhurst Brook Farm is situated in the pretty village of Ewhurst in the Surrey Hills, a perfect base to enjoy the labyrinth of country walks and bridleways. If you like trekking, mountain biking or riding, you will be spoiled for choice.

When you stay at Thornhurst Brook Farm, you are in a very rural country location, but just a short stroll from the village amenities, and you are very close to Guildford.
