Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom barn conversion in idyllic rural setting

The barn, a former farm building, has been rebuilt and recently converted into an attractive, comfortable holiday cottage and offers a well-equipped kitchen dining room with oak beams and a stone wall, a comfortable sitting room, bedroom (with large double bed) and shower room on the ground floor. Upstairs there are two attic bedrooms: one double and one twin, and a further shower room. The property forms one side of a range of agricultural buildings in what was the old farmyard. This yard is now an attractive courtyard garden, with lawn area and table and chairs for al fresco dining. The courtyard is adjacent to the owners’ listed home. Many miles of open country and woodland of The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surround the property. The area is ideal for walking riding and biking and although quiet and rural enjoys easy access to Westcott village, and the historic market town of Dorking. With easy access by train to London, and good road access to the South of England and coast, the property is ideal as a base visiting this part of England.

Excellent Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage from the scrumptious homemade cake in the welcome pack, to the lovely location, very clean and tidy cottage with lots of little extras (like a few toys and puzzles for the kids). Beds are VERY comfortable but do be wary of the sloping ceilings :D :D, these do add to the character mind. Both hosts lovely and nothing too much trouble. Will definately stay again if back in the area.

Quiet and charming

  • 5 of 5

Lovely welcome from the owners and we really appreciated the fresh garden flowers, local wine and delicious homemade cake. The beds were really comfortable with nice linen. Kitchen well stocked, everything we needed. We had four adults and two children aged 4 and 2. The children enjoyed every minute and slept really well as it was so quiet.

Car: recommended

Situated in the Surrey Hills - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on a quiet rural lane about a mile from the village of Westcott, and only 3 miles from Dorking, the barn is ideally located for walking, cycling, riding and mountain biking. With direct access to the Surrey Hills’ extensive network of footpaths and bridleways just go from the door and leave the car behind.

Westcott has a baker’s, post office/village store, newsagents two pubs and an Indian restaurant. There is also a specialist bike shop with mountain bikes for hire. Dorking is a historic market town with a wide range of shops and restaurants, and has a railway station with a frequent service to London. There are several National Trust properties in the area, including Leith Hill Tower, the highest point in Southern England.
