The Nest

Garden cottage with outstanding Surrey Hills views

Nestled in our quintessentially English cottage garden, The Nest is a brick and flint cottage which has recently been renovated to a very high standard with Modern Rustic interiors. The Nest has an open plan Living/dining area with TV, Netflix…

What can I say, this was one of the best air BnBs I have stayed in. Everything was amazing and so well thought out. The space itself was very new, clean and stylish. I was so happy to have good cookware, a Nespresso machine, access to the beautiful heated pool on the door step. But it was also all the little touches, like the little natural bath products provided and all the eco friendly cleaning products. The location was amazing – that view! And an easy enough 20 min walk down the hill into Dorking. Julie and Damian were fantastic hosts! Would highly recommend

  •   The Nest is the perfect place for a country retreat in the Surrey Hills. Located right in the heart of the AONB, the view is stunning and the place itself was very tidy with all the amenities one may need for their stay, exactly as advertised. The hosts were very warm & welcoming and made me feel right at home. I️'d definitely recommend staying here.

      Our stay at The Nest was the perfect get away, we spent the few days we were there walking the beautiful countryside right on the doorstep and swimming in the pristine pool onsite. Julie & Damian we very helpful with local recommendations and left us to enjoy our time at the Nest. Would recommend to anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle for a few days!

      The Nest met and exceeded our expectations. It was immaculately presented and is in a beautiful area with lovely walks right on the other side of the garden hedge.
    Our stay coincided with a heatwave and it was great to be able to relax in the pool at the end of each day. It is an expensive Airbnb, but we felt this amenity made it worth the extra cost.
    There is plenty to do in the local area - we hired bikes from Just Pedal at Denbies one day, visited Polesden Lacey, had a boat trip in Guildford and visited the Hannah Peschar sculpture garden. Lots of nice places to eat too.
    The Nest is spotlessly clean, very private and has great views over the North Downs.

      Julie and Damien were wonderful hosts. The Nest is superb. Great location and outlook. Excellent furnishings inside and out and a lovely heated pool. It is the best Airbnb we have stayed in! We would be happy to return.

      Perfect weekend break - the pictures don’t do The Nest justice! Absolutely immaculate, thank you for having us Julie!

  •   Julie and Damian were amazing hosts and made us feel so welcomed and at-home. Although the pool is listed as shared, they were very flexible and gave us the privacy needed when we wanted to use it. Their garden was absolutely gorgeous, blooming with an array of colourful roses, overlooking the Leith Hill tower and beautiful scenery of Surrey Hills.

    Additionally, they were both very easy to contact for the small questions and had a guide for common house rules.

    Just as described, they had lovingly kept the space ready for us as if we were family, and we enjoyed staying there as if that were the case. They had even curated a special snack hamper for our stay!

    I would recommend The Nest to my family and friends, and would definitely consider coming again!

      Fantastic stay in a beautiful location. The cottage was welcoming, spotless and a wonderful place to stay. We arrived to some thoughtful goodies, which was very kind. The location is good with pretty places to explore nearby. The garden was a gorgeous sun trap. Having access to the pool was a real treat, especially with the nice weather. The communication from the hosts was very good, no problems. Overall, a really lovely break away and would happily recommend! Thank you for having us x

  •   We stayed for 5 weeks and it was a good size in a beautiful location and we were both able to work there. The house was very well put together and clean. Would highly recommend.

    thumb Nick

      Lovely little cottage in a fabulous location. Nice pubs, restaurants and supermarkets all within a 10 min drive and great walking trails at the end of the driveway. Very clean and modern with all amenities provided. Pool was nice with a cover so warm enough to use on a mild end of summer day.

    thumb Steph

      We had a great stay here - the views are amazing, and the cottage is lovely. Perfect for sitting around on the patio and having a swim and a coffee and looking at the hills, but with farm shops, big pubs and small towns really nearby for a change.

    thumb Holly
  •   Wonderful gem. Not only a stunning property decked out to the highest standards with breathtaking country views, our hosts were so convivial and accommodating. Truly hoping we get the opportunity to return.

    thumb Lisa

      Amazing location, very close to Dorking town and other towns but incredible uninterrupted views of the beautiful countryside. Pool is wonderful - warm, easily accessible and larger than I had expected (even from the photos). The property itself is cosy, with everything you need for a perfect stay. The owners are super friendly and helpful, while providing you with plenty of privacy throughout your stay. So much to see and do within an easy distance, we will have to return to be able to do it all!

    thumb Elaine

      Incredibly beautiful location. Lovely and quiet with much to do in the locality. We even regularly saw the local fox out the back.

  •   If you’re looking for somewhere quiet, beautiful with amazing views and lots of places to walk then this is the place. You have the best of both worlds - explore when/where you want but also lounge around the pool. Julie’s garden is truly stunning. The pool is perfect for a morning/afternoon swim and being heated is an bigger bonus. The best has been done up to a very high standard and has everything you need. We were very lucky to have such amazing weather so could enjoy the pool and sun loungers a lot more. Would 100% recommend to anyone and will definitely be back!

    thumb Chelsie

      Everything was great and Julie and Damien were lovely. The nest was clean and spacious with a lovely view. Considerate little gifts left which were very sweet and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.

      Julie is a very attentive and welcoming host who ensures the Nest is in perfect condition and equiped to serve as the best spot to explore the Surrey Hills.

      The Nest is beautifully located on top of the hill within Ranmore Common between Polesden Lacy and Abinger Roughs and Netley National Trust Parks. The Nest is a charming little garden house, very well designed and maintained with beautiful views over the Tillingbourne Valley.
    It is fully equiped and hosts Julie and Damian will do anything they can to make your stay at the Nest most comfortable. If you consider a visit to the Surrey Hills we cincerely recommend staying at the Nest.

      Amazing place. We loved our time here. Julie has created the perfect spot to unwind and were always readily available. So many walks on your doorstep. The pool was lovely. We intend to return!

    thumb Sean

      We had a wonderful few days in the Nest. The house itself is beautifully decorated with all the home luxuries you need to settle in - we loved having our nespresso by the pool every morning!
    The pool was bigger than we expected and heated so we could use it despite the cooler weather. Julie and Damian were very helpful with recommendations of villages to visit, walks to take and restaurants to try. We will definitely visit again!
