My name is Jenny and I used to be a full time nurse - I am now retired and concentrate on voluntary work with Alzheimers patients in Godalming where I now live. I grew up in Cornwall and trained at Guy's hospital in London. I lived with my partner at Newhouse Farm Cottage for 14 years until it became too large to manage. Although we now live in Godalming we still maintain the Arboretum. I also teach Yoga from time to time.
Jenny Ash or Ian Wellwood purchased this chalet in 2002
The chalet is set in the Grounds of the historic Arboretum which we bought back in 1998 when we fell in love with the setting and the seclusion together with the dramatic tree and shrub planting. The Arboretum was planted by the grandson of the famous plant hunter Robert Fortune who brought the tea plants from China to India in the 19th century.
I taught Yoga in the Chalet for 10 years but now this is not feasible because of our new home in Godalming. Because the place has such a calming effect on people and is ideal for relaxation - it is ideal for getting away from the stresses and strains of every day life in the workplace.
Me my husband and 3 year old daughter stayed at the chalet for 8 weeks.
We were in between moves and needed somewhere to stay.
Jenny was so lovely and so helpful and let us stay for the whole 8 weeks we needed to.
The chalet itself was perfect it was so cosy and the location and setting was out of this world! It was like being on holiday for 8 weeks. Our daughter loved it and used to describe it as her cabin in the fairy woods. There is a beautiful lake which my husband loved to fish at and the grounds are amazing especially if you have children, so much wildlife to explore and beautiful walks. Jenny was so accommodating and made us feel so welcome. We will stay in touch with her for sure. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We would highly recommend the Chalet to anyone. Cranleigh is the nearest village and had everything we needed. It's a lovely walk to Cranleigh from the chalet. We also visited Sheer which for my husband and myself was lovely as we love the film The Holiday and scenes were filmed in Sheer. Overall the Chalet was a perfect little hideaway and relieved a lot of stress. We would defiantly stay again if we were in the area. Thanks Jenny and Ian
The chalet is situated in the grounds of a small arboretum and is adjacent, and has direct access, to the Downs Link walkway which links the North Downs Way to the South Downs Way. This is ideal for walking and cycling. Cycle to Guildford to the North or go all the way to the coast at Shoreham to the South. Cranleigh can be driven to in about 2 minutes , cycled in 10 and walked in about 30 minutes. The Chalet is set in a very secluded and private location and is not overlooked at all. There is a lake for fishing and ample space for simple relaxation. There are numerous Gardens and National Trust historical sites to visit in the area.
