About Tim Metson

Totalling approximately 200 acres we are situated in a popular but peaceful tucked away position in the central Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We look forward to welcoming you to our home!

A rural idyll
The house was just perfect. Extremely well appointed, clean and cosy. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and you can walk on pathways straight from the house. We all felt immediately relaxed and our only regret was that we could not stay longer. One of our party had to get an early morning taxi in order to get a flight from Gatwick and Tim said she should phone him if the taxi did not arrive - and this would have been at 5 am! Perfect house, perfect host.
Rachael and friends you were a delight to host. We were sorry you couldn’t stay longer but look forward to maybe seeing you again soon!
Beautiful relaxing location - we never want to leave!
Lovely cottage with simple, clean decor offering space and light but by far the best bit is the gorgeous country views framed by woodland. The welcome is always warm and Tim and family balance beautifully attentiveness with privacy and the feeling that this is our home. We find it hard to believe that others also stayi in ‘our’ holiday home as we are made to feel so special as i’m sure every guest is.
Katie you are most welcome. It is always a pleasure to have you and the family return!
Great location. Friendly host.
If you’re looking for a relaxing farm stay Holly Cottage is ideal. Located on a working cattle farm. Our grandchildren enjoyed watching the horses and talking with their careers. Fantastic views and good access to local walking trails.
A rural paradise within an hour of Waterloo Station!
Holly Cottage is exactly what it says on the tin - it's an 'away from it all' cottage, and part of a working farm with breathtaking panoramic views. Tim and his tireless family are super hosts, and nothing is too much trouble. The welcome flowers and preloaded fridge are a superb touch that we just loved.
The cottage is spacious and very homely, and you'll be able to share your morning coffee with free range cows and horses who exist very gently right next to the cottage. It's one of those places that you can just move into, unpack your suitcases, and exist in. We loved the fact that, despite the seclusion, Guildford is a 20 minute drive away, and getting to Waterloo Station in London only takes about an hour.
The surrounding villages and areas are quaint and fun to visit, especially in the summer, and there are almost endless little roads and lanes to explore.
You will not regret a few days at Holly Cottage.
Outstanding on all accounts
Cosy, modern farm house in the heart of beautiful Surrey. Tim and the entire family were amazing hosts and this is one of the best holidays we have had! We will be dreaming about Holly’s cottage when we get back home!
Stunning country UK retreat
Holly Cottage, Peaslake was everything we hoped for and more - the photos on the website represent it perfectly. It was a perfect retreat, in spectacular countryside, to recover from a long flight from Australia. We were greeted by beautiful roses and a generous food hamper which was lovely. The cottage was so well resourced we couldn't think of anything else we would have needed. The Metson's were fantastic hosts and even jump started our car on our last day and saved us from missing our train to Paris (thanks again!!) - thanks for a wonderful stay - we hope to return one day!!!
