About the property

Gracious character home in stunning semi-rural setting. Great for families.

Hillview House is a spacious (approx. 3000 sq.ft, 278 sq.m), 3-storey, detached 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom house with large (125') back garden overlooking the scenic Hascombe Hill. Located in the beautiful Surrey Hills - deemed an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty".

Hillview House is a few minutes’ drive to Cranleigh, the largest village in England and 8 miles/13 kms southeast of Guildford, or approximately 15 minutes’ drive from historic and scenic Guildford. From Guildford, you can catch a train into London Waterloo with a journey time of approx. 40 minutes.

6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, so perfect for groups or families who wish to spend some time exploring London, but also the rest of the South East, as it is easy to reach all the major motorways - without the hassle of London traffic.

Known as 'England's largest village', Cranleigh lies in the scenic Surrey Hills, close to the West Sussex border. The smaller villages around it include Alfold, Bramley, Ewhurst and Shamley Green. The Cranleigh Show is a popular annual agricultural event, while Wings & Wheels takes place every year at nearby Dunsfold Park. Cranleigh has a large Sainsbury’s grocery store, Mann’s department store, a few restaurants and eateries and many independent shops.

In Guildford, there are many shops and amenities, including theatre, cinema, many restaurants, coffee shops, various grocery stores and many high street and independent shops. Its cobblestone streets, riverside location and fine views make it a much sought after shopping, dining and recreation destination.

The house sleeps up to 12 in total. Sleeps 12 on 1 superking, 2 kings, 3 single beds (including a set of bunkbeds), and another superking (or 2 singles), and additional single bed can be provided, for a total of 12. There is also a travel cot and highchair available. Has 4 bathrooms (3 with bath/showers and 1 WC on the ground floor). Perfect for groups or families travelling together combining exploring the beautiful English countryside with visits to London and other nearby attractions, yet having some space to spread out and comfortably relax together for 'down time'.

About Valerie Brennan

Married, mum of two busy pre-teens. Originally from Canada, moved to the UK in 1997 with my husband.

Valerie Brennan purchased this house in 2014

Why Valerie Brennan chose Waverley

We lived in London for many years but with the arrival of the kids, we decided to make a move outside the capital for a little more breathing space. We were originally drawn to the Surrey Hills because of the amazing schools but quickly came to love living the country lifestyle - mostly the walks, the people, the pubs!

Very child-friendly, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 7 adults plus 4 children under 4. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this modern large family home. We were totally surprised by the quantity of toys, books and equipment for children both in the house and the garden as the Online information had not mentioned this at all. The weather was generally very good for our stay and the children had great fun in the garden on the slide, in the play house and of course on the large trampoline! Whilst the adults could enjoy relaxing on the settees on the decking.

Location was also very good for a number of woodland walks just short car journeys away.

Our reason for staying was a family wedding in Surrey and to have a holiday together prior to one daughter and family going abroad for 3 years, the house and facilities added to a wonderful week which altogether exceeded our expectations.
