Beautiful, well equipped, quiet cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay in Holly cottage. Thank you Metson family for a warm welcome combined with privacy, for comfort in a beautiful rural surrounding. The air is pure, the silence of nature, the outdoor walks of Surrey.

We liked the cottage. beds, kitchen, shower, wifi was all perfect. We loved being here.

Cosy, modern farm house in the heart of beautiful Surrey. Tim and the entire family were amazing hosts and this is one of the best holidays we have had! We will be dreaming about Holly’s cottage when we get back home!

Stunning country UK retreat

  • 5 of 5

Holly Cottage, Peaslake was everything we hoped for and more - the photos on the website represent it perfectly. It was a perfect retreat, in spectacular countryside, to recover from a long flight from Australia. We were greeted by beautiful roses and a generous food hamper which was lovely. The cottage was so well resourced we couldn't think of anything else we would have needed. The Metson's were fantastic hosts and even jump started our car on our last day and saved us from missing our train to Paris (thanks again!!) - thanks for a wonderful stay - we hope to return one day!!! The Croll family

Gorgeous location and perfect cottage for us

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful welcome pack awaited us. Tim was around/available if we needed him but also gave us our own space. We felt almost part of the little community and really felt that we had moved in. Loved the proximity to Peaslake - lovely stroll through the woods or short drive down the lane. Beauriful sun trap with great outdoor seating. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had amazing views. Mattresses could have been a little thicker but everything else was perfect for us. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Katie. As you know we are constantly upgrading the cottage and the mattresses are one of the next items to be addressed to make your next visit that little bit more comfortable. Look forward to seeing you again soon! Kind regards Tim

Beautiful, well equipped and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay at Holly Cottage was excellent as usual. The cottage is clean, in a beautiful location, and extremely well equipped. Tim and family are friendly and our two boys loved watching the cows and horses come and go. A great location to get around the south of England, we will definitely be staying again.
