Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Epsom & Ewell - Lynchets

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Lynchets is in a small village called Betchworth, which is about 25 miles from central London. It is set on a hill with extensive views over southern England.

There are many fantastic golf courses within easy reach, and the local town of Dorking is known for its collection of antique shops.

There are plenty of walks and hikes right from the bottom of the driveway, and Lynchets sits on the path of the original “Pilgrims Way”.

Fantastic

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the cottage over new year with family and friends. This was my second stay at the cottage and it was just as beautiful the second time. The pool was a lovely warm temperature. The views and the sunrise from the cottage are amazing and there are some wonderful walks. The owner kindly left the Xmas decorations up for us so it still felt really Christmassy. There are some nice pubs nearby plus Reigate is only 10 mins by car. Tescos delivered to the cottage so there was no reason for us to go out for any supplies. Two of our party did take their golf clubs and played golf at a nearby course.

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend at this amazing cottage.
We had amazing weather so with that,the gardens and the pool we felt like we were abroad with no need to leave the house.
The house had everything you could possibly need with more than enough space for us all.
Would 110% recommend this for a weekend away with friends or family

AMAZING

  • 5 out of 5
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. To be honest, I did not want to write a review because this place is an absolute gem, so much so, that I want to keep it a secret and keep it for myself. That simply would not be fair...why? The cottage was everything we (a group of 10) could have ever hoped for. The view...incredible, the house...complete, the pool...heated (enough said), the surrounding area...serene. I want to go back right now. If you live anywhere near a city and need a getaway, this is your place. My only request - keep it clean and treat it as your own so that you do not ruin it for anyone else because it really is amazing. I cannot wait to go back and share it with others. Thanks for letting us stay here.

Fantastic weekend retreat

  • 5 out of 5
WOW! What an incredible house. A group of girls went for a subdued 'hen' weekend and couldn't have asked for a better place. The house was immaculate and seemed to go on, with room after room. The kitchen was really well equipped and the bathrooms were amazing! Not only that but the swimming pool was stunning! Heated, clean and really well looked after. There was also a really homely feel at the house and the views were spectacular.

Even though we were only an hour drive from London, we all felt like we were slap bang in the middle of nowhere.

Since leaving, I've been trying to come up with reasons to go back and stay again!

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 out of 5
This place is amazing! I loved the photos when I read about it online but it is even better when you get there! The home is very well furnished and perfectly set up! Ideal for family get togethers and groups if friends.

We had a lovely time. Louise was very helpful with information leading up to our stay - thank you so much!

I would highly recommend this place and would definitely love to go again!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 out of 5
We had a reunion here over a long weekend and couldn't have asked for more! There were 13 of us in total: the living area was plenty large enough for everyone who stayed and the kitchen was extremely well equipped for all of us. The whole house is fitted out to a very high standard, and although it looks like a traditional thatched cottage from the outside, it is incredibly spacious inside.

The photographs don't quite do the house justice, as it is really quite large and so much more spectacular than it appears.

The swimming pool and gardens are immaculately kept and meant that we spent a lot more time just being at the house than we intended! The whole house was cleaned to a very high standard.

The owner is extremely helpful in answering questions and recommending things to do nearby. We all went chocolate making in nearby Reigate (a place called chocolart) and had dinner in the pool house one evening. The house was such a wonderful place to stay that we didn't eat out nearby but got a supermarket shop delivered instead. There is also wine tasting nearby which looks very tempting (for the next visit!) and the nearby Boxhill. We'd recommed taxis to Reigate or Dorking to get a train to London, rather than the slower train from the nearby Betchworth statioon.

It's hard to explain just a wonderful the house is and how peaceful the location is - it is the most idyllic setting and a picture-perfect house. None of us wanted to leave, and I cannot recommend it enough.

Amazing Hiking right on Old Pilgrims Way, the property was once owned by the artist John Piper and his studio is still located behind the house with views for miles; The house faces southward and on a clear day you can see the ocean from the studio.
