Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday barn in Waverley

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.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair accessible

Barn in Ewhurst

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing place! So much love has been put into every detail of the decor, every bit as good as or better than a 5 star hotel.

Stunning location with plenty of walks in the beautiful surrounding area. Situated so close to London this is an excellent alternative to staying in the city.

The owners extended such hospitality making every effort to make us feel welcome and at home. This really was a home away from home. We certainly intend to return. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Amanda and Mark really enjoyed the stunning country setting around the barn. They found it easy getting to London and Guildford. They were perfect tenants and together with their parents, took maximum advantage of the pubs and restaurants that we were able to recommend.

The Surrey Hills are full of beautiful walks and local places to visit, including Dorking where you can lose yourself in the antique shops, or step into Denbies Winery where you will find that English wines can be well worth the time to taste.

Mark and amanda took full advantage of the huge lounge and our newly fitted kitchen, and with the enourmous bi-fold doors they were able to extend the kitchen lounge onto the patio.

In short, they were great to have in the property, and we look forward to welcoming them back.

The Barn - a Great Find

  • 5 out of 5
Having driven along the unusual and exciting road from Shere to Ewhurst, we wondered what to expect on arrival at The Barn. We were not disappointed! This superb barn conversion was everything that we had expected to share with our daughter, son-in-law and three young grandchildren who had just flown in from Sydney. We had a warm welcome from Ian Mills, who was very obliging when we asked for any assistance, but otherwise remained unobtrusive. All equipment from furnishings to appliances was of good quality and very clean and comfortable. It was exciting for the children to find quite a number of toys in various cupboards, as well as having lots of room to play outdoors, not to mention the wonderful recently upgraded play park at the end of the driveway. Instead of kangaroos or wallabies, the children loved seeing the deer in the vicinity of the house! The Barn’s geographic position was ideal for friends and family to visit, or for us to meet with them. Access to London by train, Legoland, golf courses, etc. are all within reasonable reach, and the local countryside, pubs and coffee shops were enjoyed by all of us. Grandma was given the thumbs up for a great find and we all hope that we might have reason to stay at Thornhurst Brook Farm again in the future. Christmas here would be magic!

Owner's Response: Liz and family stayed in our period barn conversion for 10 nights, and made really good use of their time in the Surrey Hills. They researched the area carefully and visited some of the places we suggested. The more they discovered in the area, the more they liked it. We have a felling that they will be back. Thanks Liz for the amazing review. We hope to see you again. You are right, the Barn at Thornhurst Brook Farm is a brilliant place to spend Christmas.

Thanks, Ian

We had the best time staying in Ian Mills's lovely barn. It was beautifully equipped, very clean, even fresh flowers on our arrival. We were able to entertain our friends on several evenings during our stay and we were all made to feel very welcome. Mr. mills was on hand in case of problems but everything was perfect. It is in such a pretty part of Surrey with beautiful walks and pubs close by and Cranleigh and Guildford a few miles away. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and would like to come back another time!

Owner's Response: Judy and family came over from New Jersey for a family wedding and they looked as if they had a great time entertaining friends and family. They have friends in Ewhurst and they all made the most of local pubs and restaurants. They spent a lot of time on the barn patio which is situated in lots of outdoor space.

We hope to see them again when they are back in the UK. We wish them good luck and thank Judy and family for their kind review.

Beautiful barn in stunning surroundings

  • 5 out of 5
The barn was clean and bright with a very spacious living area and beautiful modern kitchen. It was so cosy when the fire was lit in the evenings. Ian the owner, was most helpful. Our children loved the open space in which to run around in. We loved Cranleigh and the surrounding areas. It really is a special part of the world.

Owner's Response: Dear Ursula,

Thanks for taking the trouble to write a review. You were clearly busy with meeting friends and relatives in the area. It was great to see the children enjoying the open space outside the barn.
People do not realize until they get here, just how much space you get with a Holiday Rental property compared with a bed and breakfast.

You are absolutely right, there are lots of things to do in and around Cranleigh, and indeed we were pleased to see you take full advantage. We hope we will see you again.

Rustic Comfort

  • 5 out of 5
We recently relocated back to the UK after a stint abroad and rented the Barn for our first week back to act as our "base" while we moved into our new house a few miles away. Some friends, who are regular guests at the Barn, had recommended it to us and we had high expectations based on their descriptions. I have to say now that those expectations were, if anything, exceeded!

The Barn has been lovingly and painstakingly converted/furnished and, immediately upon entering, you are drawn into the cosy, welcoming atmosphere of the place. Ian and Denise have done a fantastic job with the conversion, especially with the subtle use of high-specification modern amenities designed for maximum comfort (super kitchen, underfloor heating, high-tech bi-folding patio doors, bathrooms etc), while maintaining the overall authentic, rustic feel of a barn setting (use of original timbers, tasteful brick and tilework, log burner etc). They also go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and we would thoroughly endorse the comments that others have made on this site in that respect.

As a result, the Barn quickly became our "home from home" and we had to literally drag ourselves away in the morning to go to our "real" home to carry on with the task of unpacking. Similarly, at the end of the day, we couldn't wait to come back to the luxury and comfort of the Barn and to sink into one of the two big leather sofas with a large glass of red wine. Our only regret was that it was never cold enough to warrant firing up the log burner as that would undoubtedly have taken the cosiness to a whole new level.

The Barn is great for families - certainly, our kids had a lovely time running around the garden, chasing rabbits and playing on the swings and the open-plan layout of the Barn itself means that there is enough room for them to tear about indoors too without the adults tripping over them. In terms of local facilities, Ian was kind enough to recommend a local restaurant in Shere which we greatly enjoyed and have visited on several occasions since.

Overall, we were delighted with our stay at the Barn and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Owner's Response: Wow,

What a review! Better than if we had written it ourselves.

We would like to thank Georgina and Toby for their comments. They were recommended by friends of theirs in Hong Kong who stayed with us last year and who will be staying later this year.

Our barn was perfectly located for their move to back to Surrey, and they were able to really focus on their unpacking without worrying about their usual domestic pressures.

We hope we see them again, and wish them and their family good luck in their new home.

Best Wishes, Ian & Denise

Idyllic setting, great hospitality!

  • 5 out of 5
The barn was the perfect place for our group of two families. Ian and Denise have done a great job equipping the place with everything one could possibly need, including some yummy home made jam. We even used their landline on the first day as we were coordinating between car rentals and my sister's arrival.

Walks in the woods and relaxing on the patio was just what we needed in between wedding parties and trips to the city. My young one was delighted to share her apple with a horse on one of her walks, the athlete with us enjoyed running in the woods and the teenagers were in heaven with the Wi-Fi connectivity. The big room was perfect for our two families to spend time with each other as we were traveling from different parts of the world.

Thank you Ian and Denise!

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your kind comments.
Renting a barn is such a good way to hold a family re-union. Having your own kitchen and lounge area, with space for all the family, is so much nicer than staying in a hotel. The big room provides plenty of space for people to do their own thing.
Both families took full advantage of the outdoor space that comes with the barn and they really enjoyed the local walks and country surroundings.
It was a pleasure having Laleh and Sara's families staying at Thornhurst Brook Farm.
We thank them for their review and hope we may see them again another 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. You will also find tennis, a children's playground and a bowling green just a short stroll from your accommodation, or why not time your visit to coincide with a polo match at the Hurtwood Park Polo Club.

England's largest vineyard, Denbies, offers a wine tasting tour and leisurely lunch at Dorking, where you will also find an array of antique shops, pretty boutiques and coffee shops.

Why not visit picture-postcard Shere where you can drop back in time and see how our villages used to be. You will find a blacksmiths, teashop, pubs, restaurants, museum and a much filmed and photographed church.

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.

Other Activities: Theatre, Cinemas and winetasting at Denbies Winery are all nearby.
