What makes this barn unique

Part of the kitchen area in the barn does have quite low ceilings so may not be ideal for anyone over 6ft tall!

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!)

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.

Amazing cottage. Everything you could possibly need. Well equipped and amazing decor. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home and help in any way needed. Lovely setting with ducks on the doorstep. Didn't want to leave!

Barn Cottage is located within a peaceful country location away from the main village of Merstham. We have beautiful fields surrounding us with many wonderful country walks nearby. London is only 30 minutes away by train so a convenient location if you fancy an exciting night out to the theatre or just to experience the beauty of one of the most amazing cities in the world!
