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

  •   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.

    thumb James

      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!

    thumb George

      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

    thumb Lindsey

      It was an outstanding place to stay. A lot of greenery around with big garden and view

  •   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.

    thumb Darryl

      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.

    thumb Paul

      An incredible place on Ranmore Common with spectacular views , amazing walks , yet really close to Dorking and a lovely place to stay . Beautifully decorated with great quality bedding to crockery and a lovely coffee machine and wifi. Julie is helpful as required but allows you to enjoy this stunning place , it is very private we would love to visit again

    thumb Fiona

      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.

    thumb Paul

      Perfect for our requirements, thank you Julie!

  •   We had a lovely time spending a week in the Nest. A beautiful property in a beautiful location on top a hill. Amazing views and just the place to relax!

    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!

      Wonderful calm peaceful place to escape, had a lovely time there

    thumb Rupert
  •   Had a lovely stay. Had everything we needed. It was the peaceful break we envisioned while browsing Air BnB. The pool and the view were incredible.

    thumb Jake

      A lovely private holiday cottage in a beautiful area with great walks.
    Julie and Damien are welcoming and helpful hosts.
    The swimming pool was perfect and not overlooked.
    The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed.
    The thoughtful touches were appreciated and gave the property the feeling of a boutique hotel.

    thumb Katharine

      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

    thumb Natalie

      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.
