About the property

8 bedroom Gothic style house with amazing views set in 20 acres of its own land

A beautiful beautiful country estate comprising a large Gothic style house (5000 sq ft) with a commanding hill top setting (views 360) degrees). Set in 5 acres of park like grounds and a further 15 acres of paddocks and is approached by a 1 km private driveway and all one hour from London by either train or car (15 mins from junction 9 of M25). A fantastic place to celebrate a special occasion or hold a private business meeting.

A superb reception hall leads onto a large contemporary living room and a dining room with comfortable seating for 16, a well equipped kitchen and a sunny breakfast room. There is a 900 sq ft dance studio with mirrors, laser and disco lights, sound system and 9 ft cinema screen.

Within the grounds is a beautiful large York Stone south facing terrace with gorgeous views leading onto a stunning (50 ft long) swimming pool with a diving board (slide closed for children's safety). Enjoy a hot tub with LED lights and waterfall overlooking fabulous views and a new Finnish pine sauna/steam room (an Isauna!) with soothing fibre optic lights. The tennis court is fine for a knockabout, not Wimbledon standard though!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Located in a beautiful countryside with breathtaking views, not far from a village or (for those who wish to explore further afield) Horsham/Guildford. The house has fantastic and well maintained facilities from an outdoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi to an amazing party den complete with disco lights and a DJ booth! The owners are extremely welcoming and a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend this property to friends/relatives. First class stay at a 5 star property!

A phenomenal house!

  • 5 of 5

I booked a break over the August Bank holiday weekend on the recommendation of a friend of mine who had stayed at Great Oak Park last year and raved about it. The house is phenomenal! My family and I were absolutely thrilled with our choice, from the wow factor upon arrival to the amazing pool (we had several wonderful BBQs). The party room with its incredible lighting system and cinema was terrific fun (there’s even a fancy dress box). We spent hours messing around on the tennis court and never ran out of entertainment. Will definitely be booking again.

True relaxation & wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived the owners made us feel at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay which was sumptuous, relaxing and fun. The house is beautifully equipped for all your needs and Is a dream to stay in. So much to do and many walks to take. Families are catered for so well with many kind finishing touches.

We will be back, for sure.

Beautiful Country Manor House

  • 5 of 5

I have just stayed at Great Oak Park for the second time. I have visited the house before for a family celebration but this time I booked the property for a two night management conference.

It is the perfect venue for gathering senior management together and giving them the opportunity to get to know each other and think uninterrupted by every day office life. There are plenty of large, light rooms for meetings including the wonderful party room with its projector and flip charts and a large square table in a triple aspect dining room.

Being convenient to reach was a priority for my firm so as Great Oak Park is only one hour by either train or car from central London this was a great advantage.

We cooked together one evening and had a wonderful dinner served the other night. The swimming pool is incredible as is the hot tub and sauna which we used to relax. My colleagues were delighted with my choice so we will definitely be back!

Fantastic hen weekend

  • 4 of 5

Just spent the most amazing weekend here for my best friend's hen do. The house and its surroundings are just stunning and provide a perfect venue and atmosphere for a fun but relaxed escape.

Friday night we partied in the fantastic basement room. Lasers, nightclub-worthy sound system and the bonus of a fancy dress box! Saturday night we had a pyjama party, ordered a takeaway, and watched a film on the huge home cinema screen. We also managed to fit in afternoon tea, a lot of wallowing in the hot tub, some country walks and a whole lot more.

I would recommend this to anyone and would go back in a heartbeat.

Thanks to Nicky the owner who put up with my months of pre-planning and over-organising.

The only downfall is that the pool is closed from end of September. Of course we knew that before we went and that was fine as we expected chilly October weather but we ended up having glorious sunshine most of the time so it would have been even better if the pool had remained open just for one extra week so we could have had a dip. I guess we'll just have to go back another time in summer!! 👍

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. As you say, we agreed and priced your weekend in October with the pool closed at the time of booking . Nearer the time we considered keeping it open but the night time temperatures were correctly forecast at 2 deg C which would have made the costs of heating such a large pool disproportionately high which I knew you didn't want. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the hot tub which is fabulous all year round. It was a pleasure to meet you and your friends and we hope to see you again at your next celebration.

Wonderful Country House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just had the most fabulous few days away from it all relaxing in this perfect setting. Although close to London we felt as if we were in the middle of the countryside and loved the stunning views from every window. The enormous pool was great fun and the hot tub incredible!

The party room was fantastic with its DJ booth and cinema. There was so much to do and enjoy that we really didn't want to leave, it was truly a break to remember.
