Idyllic Weekend Retreat
I stayed at The Barn with 3 girlfriends looking for a chilled and peaceful weekend. We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot. Nestling deep in the Surrey Hills, The Barn is as idyllic as you could hope for. Lovely walks with access to The Greensands Way to Leith Hill a stone's thow away. Dorking town is only 10 minutes drive, and Denbies Vineyard is well worth a visit.
The Barn itself has been beautifully converted. All bedrooms are cosy and comfortable, and all ensuite. I slept too well to hear the owl hooting and the cows calving! Very warm, clean and tidy, with stacks of books and games available.We expected to have problems with the size of the kitchen, but there is a full size fridge, oven, hob and microwave. All very cleverly fitted in. There is a lack of work surface but it just meant we had to clear up as we went - no bad thing! The woodburner made for a very relaxed post roast Sunday afternoon Richard and Gay could not have been more accommodating, greeting us with a substantial basket of goodies and on hand if we needed anything. Their beautiful house is right next door so not the place if you want complete privacy but absolutely no problem for us. Like others, I hesitated to write this lest the Barn should be fully booked next time I want to stay!
