About the property

Sleeps 6/7 in 3 double rooms with en-suites, in Surrey village of Ewhurst

The barn is a country-lovers dream, where old oak timbers mix sympathetically with green oak to form a fantastic living space with a massive inglenook fireplace and where the galleried landing looks down on the comfy settees near a friendly wood burner and next to a spacious dining area and newly fitted oak kitchen.

There are three beautiful double bedrooms with full en-suite facilities. One with bath and two with shower. There is an additional folding guest bed or cot for children.

Step outside onto your barn patio where you are surrounded by open fields and views complemented by the newly restored farm buildings, including a picturesque stable block with clock tower.

A 3 minute stroll takes you into Ewhurst village where you will find pubs serving food, shops & village sports facilities. The old parish church adds to the feeling of history you sense when visiting. Ewhurst also has a cricket club and Hurtwood Country Polo Club. Guildford, Cranleigh & pictureque Shere are nearby.

Well equipped character barn in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 small children for over a week and had a wonderful time. The barn has a lovely open plan living space with a very well equipped kitchen and was easy to live in. We hosted a few friends whilst we stayed too, and one day had 10 adults with 9 young children racing around the grounds outside; all commented on what a great place it was and with the doors open onto the garden it didn't once feel crowded.

The local shop is within a five minute walk and has most basics, with bigger supermarkets and shops within a few minutes drive.

The local area is stunning, although as the barn is in a small village along many narrow country roads it can take a while to drive to places. Lots of footpaths and countryside to explore though right on the doorstep if you don't want to travel too far.

The only issue we had during our stay was that the beds in both the downstairs bedrooms all seemed to be less than full size single beds. They were fine for children but only just about ok for tall adults, so if you plan to use the downstairs bedrooms be aware of this. The Double bed upstairs is fine.

Other than that I'd recommend fully for a relaxing break and would happily go back again.

Owner's Response: Richard, Caroline and family really seemed to enjoy their stay. They took full advantage of the real upsides that comes with the generous reception area that the beautifully restored barn offers together with the stunning outdoor space. Their friends and family loved just being in the barn and garden. In spite of that, they explored the Surrey Hills, recently declared an area of outstanding natural beauty. I recommended the local pubs that have excellent food and an enclosed garden, suitable for young children. The family also took their children to the village children's playground, which is just a short five minute stroll. They are a nice family to have stay. We would be pleased to see them return.

Owner's Response: Suzanne, family and friends took full advantage of the local gems hidden in the beautiful Surrey Hills. They loved Shere, which is a truly picturesque village with shops, tea shop and really English pubs, as well as a lovely spot for children to feed the ducks. They also visited Denbies Winery, where you can have a tour of the wine making facilities and enjoy tasting prize-winning UK wines. The winery also offers full lunches or tea and cakes. The whole family loved the barn which has a huge outdoor space surrounded by country walks and a plentiful supply of local pubs with enclosed gardens. Thanks for staying with us Suzanne and co. We look forward to seeing you next time.

A barn for country-lovers

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my mother in law and our two teenage boys very enjoyed a peacefull and relaxing time at this wonderfull place. The barn is well equipped and maintained with everything you need. The owner is a very helpfull and friendly person, was always ready to help if we needed something or a recommendation for a journey or going out for diner . The kitchen is just superb and the fireplace is amazing. You can see at every detail, that the owner wants you to feel comfortable and really at home. Many thanks to you Ian and if we`ll have the opportunity we would love to come again.

Owner's Response: Thankyou Marco and Astrid stayed in our restored period barn for 10 nights just after Christmas. They took full advantage of the easy access to London that Thornhurst Brook Farm offers. They also explored the Surrey Hills which are an are of outstanding natural beauty. There are lots of walks available, and one of their walks took them to Leith Hill Tower, which is the highest spot in Surrey, following their visit to Leith Hill with a meal in one of our cosy pubs. Thankyou Marco and family for your kind review. We will be pleased to welcome you whenever you can make it back.

Owner's Response: Dear Cas & Ron, Thank you for your kind review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. The refurbished Barn @ Thornhurst Brook Farm was perfect place to stay when you had a family wedding going on in the immediate neighbourhood. It was great to see you and your family and friends playing Badminton /volleyball in the garden. We hope we may see you again for a longer stay next time. Best Wishes, Ian

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

With this being the first time using VRBO I didn't know what to expect. My first impressions when arriving were WOW. The property was amazing the "barn" was gorgeous the location was perfect especially with my kids and the park, shop and pub only a walk away. The barn felt like a home away from home was stocked perfectly and Ian was so helpful and very very nice. I would come back here in a heartbeat! If he would allow me and my three miserable children that wouldn't sleep!!! No complaints here only compliments hope to see you again soon!

Owner's Response: Thankyou Kate for your kind review. Kate and family travelled from Canada, and were great guests to have. They really took advantage of the beautiful location, using the outside space for the children to play. They loved the restored barn and took full advantage of the local pub which is perfect for children. The barn offers generous reception space comprising of open plan kitchen/dining/ lounge area as well as oak bi-folding doors that open onto a huge outdoor patio and meadow. It was great to see everybody enjoy themselves, and we hope Kate and family will be back again. Thanks Kate & co, Best Wishes, Ian
