About the property

Barn in Westhumble Nr. Dorking, Surrey, England - Peaceful Rural Location, easy access

The recently converted 19th century barn nestles in the farm properties. It has a modern open planned feel with luxury interior design and facilities. You will receive a warm personal welcome here at the farm. We are happy to collect you from the station in the village which has regular trains to London's Waterloo and Victoria stations. We are a working smallholding. You may well be woken by George the cockerel or Prince the donkey, before feasting on a breakfast of eggs and bacon from our own pigs and chickens. The welcome pack provided is extensive and includes products from the farm, freshly baked bread and cakes as well as produce from local suppliers.

Exceptional Luxury retreat

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth has a keen eye for design and detail , she provides a beautiful rural luxury experience balanced with a warm feel of being home . I stayed for two weeks over the Christmas season 2017-2018 . On arrival was greeted by Elizabeth , I was given small tour of the barn , everything was set perfectly luxury magazines on coffee table , a welcome pack bacon eggs sausages all produced on site , raspberry jam etc. , even home-made cupcakes . Why did it exceed my expectations well , staying away for Christmas and spending time with my English family is special and I feel that Liz really cares , there was Christmas music playing gently on a vintage radio in the master room , which overlooks the beautiful farm and Surrey hills , and there was even a decorated Christmas tree and tasteful decorations , everything was there so i could cook Christmas dinner for my family , Liz even brought an electric carving knife especially for this occasion . The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful and equipped like a luxury hotel , even fluffy white bath robes slippers and a cosy hot water bottle in case . Liz lives next door but manges to have right balance of control vs intrusion . If I was going to give one piece of advice for the reviewers and to be objective , it would be that in my humble opinion it is not a place for a young family , more beautiful romantic retreat for couple or for more mature family . Make sure to check also the terms and conditions they apply as I found out not only for those who stay in the accommodation but for your visitors to , i.e. no children under 5 this could be a small barrier for occasions like Christmas or other celebrations in the house , Liz is very open and flexible but understandably wants the house kept in show house condition . I would go back with no hesitation we had a wonderful restful stay THANK YOU !

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie. Thanks for posting such a lovely review of The Flint Barn. I am glad to hear that you found it homely. We like our guests to feel comfortable as well as being pampered and indulged. I appreciate your comments about young children. We have not aimed the property at young families so your comments are completely justified. We are of course flexible when families come to visit our guests as in your case. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Beautiful barn, beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Lovely barn, very kind and welcoming owners, our favourite part of the UK.

We know the area well having lived there for a long time, so we were very happy to find the Flint Barn in the middle of it all.

Walks in the Surrey Hills, Dorking, Guildford and London close by.

The barn and surroundings are beautiful.

Our only regret, it is already booked for autumn half term!

We hope to be able to come again!

Wow what a wonderful place we have found. Thank you LIz and John for our stay at Flint barn.

We were overwhelmed by your hospitality the welcome pack was amazing !! Bacon sausage and eggs all from there animals freshly made cup cakes which were yummy all washed down with a beautiful glass off wine from the local vineyard.

We visited many places when staying at Flint barn, theme parks, shopping & the seaside all within 40 min drive.

You have done an amazing job here guys and we will be back without a doubt.

Thanks again Darren, Maddy , Chloe & Charlie

P.s Charlie is missing the dogs and I'm missing the homemade jam !!

Glorious Flint Barn

  • 5 of 5

30 years ago my wife and I lived in Brockham so know the Surrey Hills well, yet had never ventured down Chapel Lane. Believe me we were both so happy to find that special place where you Liz, John and your family now live.

It is so peaceful yet conveniently located, with fantastic views plus your menagerie of animals, particularly your 3 friendly dogs.

The barn has been loving restored with every convenience and luxury so that self catering was indeed a pleasure. it is spotlessly clean, maintained to the highest standard and yet remains welcoming. The thoughtful touches of cakes, jams, cheeses etc etc and your non invasive friendship added so much to our holiday that without doubt we will stay with you again.

High recommended

Great location and quality accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children and thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Flint Barn, so much so that we have stayed during 2015, both in Autumn for 1 week and again early December for 10 nights. Both the property and the surrounding countryside are really gorgeous. We enjoyed many walks to Denbie’s Wine Estate and the surrounding trails. We found any shopping we needed in the lovely market town of Dorking and the train is conveniently located for any trips into London.

Flint Barn is a very well appointed holiday retreat away from every day life. The interior is such a unique and special place that is cleaned and cared for immaculately. We found everything we needed and Liz would be helpful if you did require some assistance. Liz is both welcoming (thank you for all the lovely treats Liz!) offering local information but at the same time very respectful of her guest’s privacy. We all particularly enjoyed seeing the farm animals and special friendly dogs but still felt it was our own space to come and go with ease.

We would highly recommend this accommodation couples and families. We hope our own friends and family from Australia will have the chance to visit Flint Barn. Thank you Liz and Family for all your efforts to create a holiday haven.

Bit late in writing this review, apologies Liz. I arrived with my sister and daughter the night before getting married and returned with my husband to spend a our first few days together as newly weds. The barn is a beautifully luxurious property finished to a high standard. The glass wall in the main bedroom looking over the lounge and out across the farm is a really nice touch. Thank you so much Liz for all the special touches you organised for us on arrival, personalized hand made biscuits, champagne from Denbies wine estate, located nearby etc. The barn is a great location for exploring the surrey hills, beautiful country pubs and restaurants in Dorking which are well worth visiting. If I had to say one thing it would be to provide an outdoor space for smokers. We had a couple of smokers and it seemed a bit unfair especially at night that they'd have to smoke out beyond the entrance gates. I did notice a couple of safe places that I'm sure would've been no risk to the farm i.e. the patio garden or just outside the front door perhaps. Thanks again :-)

Owner's Response: Dear Michelle thank you for your review of our property. It was a pleasure to play a small part in your special day and we are so glad that the Barn lived up to expectations. We have had a few honeymooning couples stay with us now and the Barn has proven to be a romantic refuge after a busy wedding day. It was a shame you did not mention about the no smoking guidelines on the farm being a problem at the time. We are happy to work around any special requests if possible and I am sure we could have helped you out with this. I hope that you will be able to visit us again, it would be lovely to see you. I trust married life is all you expected - and more!! With best wishes. Liz Absalom
