Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Betchworth - Lynchets

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Lynchets is in a small village called Betchworth, which is about 25 miles from central London. It is set on a hill with extensive views over southern England.

There are many fantastic golf courses within easy reach, and the local town of Dorking is known for its collection of antique shops.

There are plenty of walks and hikes right from the bottom of the driveway, and Lynchets sits on the path of the original “Pilgrims Way”.

Absolutely 10 out of 10!

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can I say. The property, the view, the amenities.... the photo does not do it justice at all. As we drove through the gates , all we could do was gasp with delight. We were speechless with the beauty of the surroundings... As for the house itself... more than delightful. I was able to celebrate my 50th with my nearest and dearest in such a wonderful place was a dream come true. We enjoyed the experience so much that we have already checked to see if it is available for Christmas and/or New Years but sadly the place - unsurprisingly - has already been booked. But we will be booking again. Love it! Thank you Louise for such a wonderful experience. xxxxx

The perfect house for a family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We rented from a Thursday until a Monday morning, so that our family could gather for the wedding of our son to a local girl. This was a great house for us, plenty of space for everyone and their cars. The highlight will always be the pool house and it's terrace, the plot is elevated and looks southwards towards Crawley about 10 miles away.

The house itself is thatched and does have a lot of character, it also has plenty of modern features and a good number of loos as well! The master bedroom is superb, so worth a special mention.

A bbq on the terrace, some splashing about in the pool, conversation, a drink or two and views over a whole swathe of Surrey countryside ........ does it get any better?

Louise was very helpful with the one or two queries we had, a big thank you from all of us for our special weekend.

So close to London but you feel like you're in the middle of the countryside

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely. Very well maintained. We stayed here as two families and the children loved the "bunk room". The absolute star of the house is the pool. Children and adults alike couldn't be kept out of it! We'd definitely stay again.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous long weekend away with all the family (party of 12, 6 children & 6 adults) the cottage was spotless and everyone really enjoyed the pool. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly to any queries we had. A real home from home. :)!

Lovely holiday home, pictures do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I wanted to say, the pictures do not do this place justice. I stayed here for a long weekend with my family and we had the best time ever. I thought that going in the winter we wouldnt enjoy the pool but boy was I wrong, the pool house was warm, the water was warm and in the evening when its dark outside, the pool lights come on and its gorgeous. The house is huge with enough bathrooms to go around. The surrounding scenery is out of this world, idyllic, even the kids appreciated it. You will definitely not be disappointed if you came here. The owner is a lovely lady and helped us at every twist and turn that came upon us. I do not have one bad word to say about this place. Enjoy it :)

Amazing Hiking right on Old Pilgrims Way, the property was once owned by the artist John Piper and his studio is still located behind the house with views for miles; The house faces southward and on a clear day you can see the ocean from the studio.
