Even better than we'd hoped!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from midweek to midweek, together with various combinations of our adult children and their partners over the 7 nights.

Sometimes the reality of a hotel or a holiday rental disappoints, compared with the photos and description. Barn Cottage certainly didn't! We and all our guests were entranced by the cottage and its surroundings. How delightful to sit at breakfast and watch ducks, moorhens and pheasants by the pond just outside the window - and to see a field of rapeseed coming into bloom over our stay!

The owners are friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.

Our daughter's wedding took place over the' weekend and she was able to leave for the church from Barn Cottage as if it were our own home (we live far off, in France). Plenty of room for the bridal party to congregate and for us to prepare buttonholes etc the night before.

(Thanks, Debbie & Co for allowing us to do that - and for providing April sunshine at no extra cost!)

A wonderfully peaceful retreat and yet only 40 minutes to the city

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Barn last week. As a family of 4 we had been staying in London while husband worked in London and decided we needed a bit of space and lucked out on finding Debbie & Jeremy's lovely holiday homestead.

The accommodation is a beautifully converted barn with all the creature comforts (Debbie provides eggs, flowers and welcome basket as a lovely touch).

Our kids loved the duck pond and garden and just looking out onto the surrounding fields. This really is a beautiful part of Surrey - an 'area of outstanding beauty'. Surrey Hills very close and shops a 10 minute drive.

Prefect and we truly hope to return next year.

Stayed for a week in March whilst back in UK to deal with some family business. Excellent location, great host, well equipped - cannot rate it high enough.

Wonderful stay in delightful countryside

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have stayed at the New Barn at Alderstead Manor over the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Very well equiped, spotlessly clean and in a gorgeous rural settling amidst the rolling Surrey countryside with a pond on the doorstep and adorable ducks.

Debbie and Jeremy are a delightful couple and nearby to offer any help during your stay.

New Barn is ideally located and good access to the motorways, airports and train station. London only 30 minutes by train or to visit the coast. Also there are excellent walks from the New Barn and to quaint country pubs.

We certainly will return again, a wonderful time was had by the 5 of us. Certainly a home from home.

Merstham shines

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, amazingly quiet - which was our major worry, with M23 & M25 so close, but no noise (bar the ducks on one occasion!) and such great access to both motorways and to London, whether by car or train (we did both), very well situated. Impeccably clean, well equipped, lovely holiday home, with a very pleasant owner added in! Welcome pack much appreciated. Enjoyed by all, thank you. Definitely recommend. EGJAE from France

Beautiful barn in peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented barn with excellent finishes. Deborah was a pleasure to deal with and could not have been more helpful. The children delighted in the surroundings of the barn and I would love to return for another visit.

A unique property in a very peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle of city life but close enough to London. A perfect getaway for families, couples and a wonderful honeymoon location. You will feel very spoiled in our beautiful barn!
