a cosy, country feel



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.

A restful shade of pale grey through to a denim blue run throughout this spacious, vaulted cottage.

The Nest has an open plan Living/dining area with TV, Netflix and a Sonos speaker, comfy sofa and Vintage furniture.

French doors lead outside to a willow screened comfortable eating area and the heated outdoor pool with sun loungers to relax on in the sunny South facing garden.

The Nest also has a microwave, table top ironing mat, iron and hairdryer. Includes private, off road parking for 1 vehicle.

A compact but fully functional kitchen with induction hob, electric oven, washer/dryer, fridge with ice making compartment and a Nespresso machine.

The Modern rustic vibe continues in the shower room with wood effect tiles, industrial lighting, a heated towel rail, Roca sanitaryware and Hansgrohe shower.

The Bedroom has a cosy, country feel with a tongue and groove feature wall, King size Feather & Black bed with Hypnos mattress and draped with 100% linen bed linen.

Quirky features, with dolly tub bedside tables and Kilner jar lamps complete the look.

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

    thumb Rahul

      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!

      Julie & Damien are wonderful welcoming hosts. The cottage, pool and grounds are even better in real life. It’s a truly stunning location & view. They have thought of everything you need to really live there whilst visiting. Preparing every meal is easy as everything you need is supplied. Amazing walks in the immediate vicinity. Definitely the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in for rest and relaxation

  •   This is our second visit to The Nest, and it was another lovely holiday. Even though the weather wasn't brilliant, just relaxing in the peace and quiet and watching the wildlife was wonderful. The warm private pool was usable even on the grey, damp days. Julie and Damien are lovely hosts and always friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back for another stay in future!

      When looking for a safe and comfortable place to quarantine having returned from an Amber country I found The Nest. 45 minutes from Heathrow, comfortable for a couple, fabulous views and open skies and a private pool seemed to guarantee an easy time. And I was right. We had a perfect stay.
    Hosts Julie and Damien are discreet and take great care to make sure residents of their annex have privacy.
    The space is compact but all you need with a comfy bed, sofa and a shower with good pressure. But the highlight is outside. The views across the Surrey Hills would be hard to beat and the aforementioned private pool creates a real holiday atmosphere. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    thumb Marjory

      A cozy, light little house in a picturesque place. Perfect for a couple’s retreat.

    thumb Yulia

      We had the most lovely stay here, it really felt like a home away from home. The place was spotlessly clean and was so beautifully styled. The welcome card and gift were such a lovely thoughtful touch. We felt so at home and comfortable, and Julie and Damien were very helpful and accommodating. Stunning views and walks right on the doorstep. Such a peaceful little getaway spot. Thank you so much for our lovely stay!

    thumb Megan
  •   This place is just wonderful! We could not be happier having picked the Nest for our little getaway from London! As other guests have mentioned - you can completely feel like home! Will come back for sure.

    thumb Evelina

      A perfect pool away from the city. For us, the week was swimming, BBQ, and an easy kitchen, and a perfect launching point for some walks. Inside the house is no frills and no distractions, which suited us great.

    thumb Gabriel

      We loved every moment of our time at The Nest. Julie and Damian's home is the perfect location for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday. We loved the landscape and the trees. The Nest enjoys beautiful views; it's nestled in an absolutely stunning location. We would love to stay here again and enjoyed every moment of our holiday. Thank you Julie and Damian.

      The Nest is a haven in an idyllic and breathtakingly beautiful spot above the most spectacular countryside. If you need to recharge the batteries, this is the place.

    Julie and Damien are perfect hosts going above and beyond to not only be perfect hosts but to be kind and charming people for whom nothing is too much trouble. Anything that I needed from freezer bags to an extra blanket were produced instantly.

    The Nest is immaculately clean and beautifully furnished with Julies impeccable interior design skill. The pool is gorgeous, private, clean and tranquil.

    Silent Pool provide delicious local gin with Mandheeras mouthwatering curries and the superb Kingfisher Farm Shop with lovely fresh produce and delicacies that would not be out of place in Harrods food hall.

    There’s plenty to do and see with superb walking, picture perfect country villages and vineyards nearby. In short an immaculate and tranquil oasis.

    thumb Emma
  •   The Nest is an absolute dream: perched like a crow’s nest looking out over Julie’s glorious pool and garden, and above the spectacular North Downs views, this little cottage is a haven of tranquility, light and fresh air. Our hosts, Julie and Damian, go above and beyond. Not only are they discreet and helpful, offering lots of thoughtful advice and ideas throughout our stay, but they even remembered it was my birthday and got me a birthday card!

    Unlike most cosy cottage holiday let’s, the kitchen and bathroom here are really well-equipped with all the latest appliances and ironware/utensils. You really can properly “live” here! The decor is gorgeous, understated and comfortable, and the accommodation is wonderfully private, despite the vast sweeping views.

    Location-wise, I really don’t think this place can be beaten if you like proper walking and breathtaking views. There is a charming farm shop and even a vineyard in walking distance too! 100% recommend for anyone needing to “re-charge” your batteries.

    thumb Harriet

      Julie’s place was just perfect. Cosy hideaway for a few peaceful days with absolutely stunning views over Leith Hill. Brilliant walks right on the doorstep and a wonderful retreat at the end of the day! Hope to stay in the summer to use the pool!

    thumb Nick

      Julie is a wonderful host, The Nest is absolutely beautiful, such a peaceful location, highly recommended.

      The Nest is the most peaceful, smart, cosy, clean and luxurious little cottage-apartment we have had the pleasure of staying in. We felt instantly comfortable and at home, everything has been so well thought out and no detail has been missed. Beautiful toiletries, wonderfully comfy bed and a smart little kitchen with everything you need. It was in fact hard to leave the Nest each day! The views are also completely stunning - a great bonus. Perfectly easy parking too. Would highly recommend!

    thumb Amber
  •   The Nest was an amazing stay. It was peaceful and beautiful space, and has been designed to perfection. Everything from the kitchen utensils to the shower were of fantastic quality, and the view from the room topped it all off. Its also right next to many countryside walking routes.

      Stunning location, great decor, fully kitted out and great hosts! Have no complaints whatsoever. We stayed for a couple of days and went hiking and though it rained we were very comfortable inside post walks....Julie was also very accommodating to our late check out. Will definitely be going back!!!

    We highly recommend this place!

    thumb Mike

      Both Julie & Damien were incredibly friendly, helpful & really speedy with answering any questions that I had. The place was lovely & the scenery was gorgeous. Would defintely go back again!

    thumb Christian

      This cottage is just stunning and even better than in the pictures. We had a lovely getaway here and were lucky enough to have good weather so could enjoy the wonderful pool, which was a real treat. Julie and Damian are incredibly friendly and accommodating and even unpacked our groceries for us when our Ocado delivery arrived early! The property is just a few minutes away from some beautiful country walks overlooking luscious green valleys. There is also a winery nearby but we didn't get a chance to visit it.

    We would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to get out of the bustle of the city and unwind. Thank you again Julie and Damian!

      Beautiful home had an amazing stay

  •   What an amazing place to relax for a few days. A wonderful, well equipped property with everything you could need in a beautiful location surrounded by nature and country side. It felt so secluded and Julie and Damian were available if needed but otherwise we had total privacy. The views from the garden were stunning and laying on the sun loungers enjoying the view after enjoying the heated pool was bliss. There's lots of nice places to eat nearby, but we mainly enjoyed cooking in and eating out on the patio al fresco. The Surrey Hills are a lovely part of the country and the Nest is a great place to enjoy it from .

    thumb Chris

      The cottage was absolutely beautiful and maintained to a very high standard. Julie’s communication was excellent throughout and I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

    thumb Lynsey

      Good accommodation and made good use of the small space in the kitchen/living area. nice swimming pool

    thumb Amy

      We had an amazing stay. A perfect relaxed private getaway in beautiful surroundings. The nest was immaculate with all the facilities needed to be self sufficient.
    The host was really thoughtful and gave us our space. Highly recommend

    thumb Clare
  •   If you are looking for an amazing place with stunning views, sparkling clean with modern new, facilities and furnishings, surrounded by beautiful countryside, quiet and private then this is for you.
    Just a magical place in every respect.

    thumb James

      Thank you so much to Julie and Damien! The Nest is a lovely little annex with gorgeous views, lots of privacy and is perfect for a mini break. My husband and I spent two nights there for our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing break where they want to switch off and chill. It's clean, it's beautifully decorated and still has great access to the local town (Dorking) for any amenities.

    thumb Henny

      A truly beautiful view from The Nest. The facilities are are very modern and stylish. The pool is an excellent size and offers great privacy.

    thumb Sarah

      I read a review comparing this cottage to soho house in regards to the decor etc.
    It’s far better than that. Every little detail felt luxury. (Special shout out for the shampoo/soaps etc!)
    Julie and Damien were great hosts, and on hand with speedy replies to any questions we had.
    My wife and I enjoyed a super private, super peaceful 2 nights by the pool, with incredible views and no noise at all - and just 50 mins from central London!
    We enjoyed a beautiful walk through woodlands and fields into the town where there were plenty of country pubs / shops for supplies.
    10/10 will book again.
