A traditional 18th Century 2 bedroom terraced cottage in the historic & very pretty Surrey village of Godstone. The village features in the Doomsday Book and was once a stopping off point for royalty traveling from London to the South Coast. It has many quaint old buildings and a traditional village green complete with duck pond. There are 4 attractive pubs in the village, a cafe, tea rooms, a post office, small food shops, antique and gift shops, a chemist and a farm shop selling locally produced meat and vegetables. There are some lovely local walks in the area and it is ideally located for exploring Surrey and Sussex and also has easy links by train to central London and easy access to the M25 motorway. Gatwick airport is a 15 min drive from the house and Heathrow airport is approx 30 miles via the M25 motorway. The house has an enclosed porch with cupboard, coat hooks and shoe storage space leading to a cosy sitting room with fireplace, bookcase, sideboard, side tables, internet, gas central heating and 40" wall mounted flat screen Smart TV. There is a large very well equipped kitchen diner with electric cooker and hob, microwave, slow cooker, sandwich toaster, coffee machine, mixer, hand blender, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. We have equipped the house as our second home and provide plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses, and cooking pans. You will enjoy our luxury downstairs bathroom with his and her sinks and fabulous shower/bath. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with king size bed and John Lewis bedding, and plenty of wardrobe space and a small single bedroom equipped with bunk beds (suitable for adults) and a chest of drawers. There is a handy second toilet with sink upstairs. The house is best suited to 3 guests, although 4 can be accommodated. Please note that the house is not equipped for very small children and isn’t suitable for children under 3. The house is set back from the road with a long front garden and another enclosed garden to the rear of the property which has a small deck, stone patio and wooden table with 4 chairs. There is plenty of free on and off road parking in the side turning next to the house, this is unrestricted and a cul-de-sac.

Great find in Godstone
My husband and I had a lovely stay here in February. We wanted to be close to our daughter and grandchildren who live a 10 min. drive away but it was always pleasant to return to our little cottage and recoup from visiting 3 children under 5!
The cottage itself is very well equipped as stated by others and the bed very comfortable. A washer and very efficient dryer certainly helped make our 16 day visit easy for us and the TV with oodles of stations helped too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this delightful cottage.
Thank you for your lovely review and so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, we hope to welcome you again.
Perfect base to visit relatives in the area
Charming, clean extremely well equipped perfect for our family of four 2 adults and a 12 & 9year old.
We have equipped the house as a home, I am so pleased you enjoyed your visit, please come back and see us again.
Comfortable cottage in convenient location
Cottage was cosy, clean, very well equipped and easy to find.
Local farm shop had great range of produce.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, the farm shop is lovely!
The property was excellent and just the kind we like to stay in. Had all the modern conveniences
We were looking for just this kind of place near the airports in London. We were looking for a small village just like Godstone. We also wanted to see a couple of venues like Chartwell and Hever Castle. They were great! Cab service is easily available. Loved the stores, bakery, and pub we visited, Hare and Hounds. If this is what you are looking for, make your reservations.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our little cottage, Godstone is a great base from which to see all the historic sites in the area. If you visit from the US again please come and stay with us.
Many Happy Returns.
2nd visit for us. When we arrived it felt like coming home, cottage just as lovely as we remembered (read our review 'Lovely Cosy Cottage' from June). A 3rd stay is on the cards and that says it all !
We enjoyed staying in this cottage. We came for a week, together with our two children ages 13 and 11. Everything you need is available in this cottage. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and very rarely you find a good bed. This cottage does have them.
Also a lovely little sitting room and a good kitchen. The only thing is that the garden is not connected to the house. Which would have been more of a need if the weather would have been better.
Thank you for the review and glad you enjoyed your stay and the bed! We spend time at the house ourselves and a comfortable bed is a must. I take your point about the back garden, the next time we are there we are planning to change the fencing so that the garden is open to the house, we do slight improvements every time we visit.
