Beautiful, well equipped, quiet cottage.
My husband and I had a great stay in Holly cottage. Thank you Metson family for a warm welcome combined with privacy, for comfort in a beautiful rural surrounding. The air is pure, the silence of nature, the outdoor walks of Surrey.
We liked the cottage. beds, kitchen, shower, wifi was all perfect. We loved being here.

Hi Moniek, you are most welcome! I am sorry that the NL were not world champions at Lacrosse this year but maybe next time! :-)
Great location. Friendly host.
If you’re looking for a relaxing farm stay Holly Cottage is ideal. Located on a working cattle farm. Our grandchildren enjoyed watching the horses and talking with their careers. Fantastic views and good access to local walking trails.
A rural paradise within an hour of Waterloo Station!
Holly Cottage is exactly what it says on the tin - it's an 'away from it all' cottage, and part of a working farm with breathtaking panoramic views. Tim and his tireless family are super hosts, and nothing is too much trouble. The welcome flowers and preloaded fridge are a superb touch that we just loved.
The cottage is spacious and very homely, and you'll be able to share your morning coffee with free range cows and horses who exist very gently right next to the cottage. It's one of those places that you can just move into, unpack your suitcases, and exist in. We loved the fact that, despite the seclusion, Guildford is a 20 minute drive away, and getting to Waterloo Station in London only takes about an hour.
The surrounding villages and areas are quaint and fun to visit, especially in the summer, and there are almost endless little roads and lanes to explore.
You will not regret a few days at Holly Cottage.
Outstanding on all accounts
Cosy, modern farm house in the heart of beautiful Surrey. Tim and the entire family were amazing hosts and this is one of the best holidays we have had! We will be dreaming about Holly’s cottage when we get back home!
Stunning country UK retreat
Holly Cottage, Peaslake was everything we hoped for and more - the photos on the website represent it perfectly. It was a perfect retreat, in spectacular countryside, to recover from a long flight from Australia. We were greeted by beautiful roses and a generous food hamper which was lovely. The cottage was so well resourced we couldn't think of anything else we would have needed. The Metson's were fantastic hosts and even jump started our car on our last day and saved us from missing our train to Paris (thanks again!!) - thanks for a wonderful stay - we hope to return one day!!!

Gorgeous location and perfect cottage for us
Wonderful welcome pack awaited us. Tim was around/available if we needed him but also gave us our own space. We felt almost part of the little community and really felt that we had moved in. Loved the proximity to Peaslake - lovely stroll through the woods or short drive down the lane. Beauriful sun trap with great outdoor seating. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had amazing views. Mattresses could have been a little thicker but everything else was perfect for us. We will be back!
Thanks for your feedback Katie.
As you know we are constantly upgrading the cottage and the mattresses are one of the next items to be addressed to make your next visit that little bit more comfortable. Look forward to seeing you again soon!
