Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday barn in Reigate & Banstead - The Barn @ Alderstead Manor

2 bedrooms (1 double & 1 twin/triple room)

The Barn @ Alderstead Manor forms part of a 13th century manor house. The property is in a very peaceful location with easy access to London which is only 30 minutes by train. Gatwick airport is only 15 miles away and Heathrow airport 34 miles. Brighton is a 35 minute drive.

There are many wonderful country walks in the area, including the Pilgrims Way. There are also a number of cycle routes within the vicinity.

Merstham is a small village but certainly has so much to offer you will never be bored here!

Alderstead Barn

  • 5 of 5

A surprisingly spacious property, in a beautiful location - rural for lovely walks, yet close enough to town and easy access to train station making it easy to get to London/Brighton and many other popular destinations.

The property is light and airy, lovely modern and new bathroom and kitchen. Looking out of the window there is a delightful view of a pond with Runner Ducks and fields all around.

The owners did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Spring/Summer Holiday 2011

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at The Barn. We stayed for 16 days. Deborah Lee and her famly were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble! We have a child of 14 yrs with special needs and The Barn was just what we needed for a wonderful holiday. We would like to stay there again on our next visit to the U.K. They have Indian Runner Ducks at their pond which is located just outside "The Barn's front door". I really enjoy watching them and learning about their character. The scenery was just stunning with views of poppies and cornfields... just so peaceful!. We had a fun holiday there! The Barn was clean and well equipped. We'll be back!

50th birthday weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We (5 ladies) stayed at the barn for a weekend to celebrate a 50th birthday. The barn is set in a beautiful location, and is a lovely place to stay. Deborah is a wonderful host, putting up birthday decorations and even baking a cake for the birthday girl (which was absolutely delicious). An excellent weekend break.

We spent a very pleasant week at The Barn.

We recommand this spacious and lovely property for people like ourselves who plan to visit London but appreciate a quiet place in the country. It takes only 30 minuts to go in the center of London, and you can have a train ticket with the free access to all public transports in London for one day at a competitive price.

The Barn is spacious, clean and very well equiped.

A good adress to remember !

Thanks Deborah !

Merstham is within very close proximity to the M23/M25 and all mainline train stations to London (30 minutes) and the South East. Gatwick airport is 15 miles away and Heathrow 34 miles.

There are a number of well known golf courses, including Walton Heath which will be hosting the senior PGA in 2011 and Reigate Hill.

The area has some beautiful country walks and is on the Pilgrims Way and is also part of the North Downs. Mountain biking and cycling are also very popular and there are numerous cycle routes available.

Hever Castle, Chartwell (Winston Churchill's private residence) and a number of other buildings of historical interest are close by.

Other Activities: Bird watching, clay pigeon shooting
