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
