Located in the Tanhurst Estate, this holiday property is set in stunning gardens, which have an array of plants, shrubs and trees.

In a peaceful location, set within the Tanhurst Estate and backing onto the grounds of Leith Hill Place and the Rhododendron Woods, this delightful character cottage is tucked away within extensive gently sloping gardens which are a short walk from the parking space. The Georgian property was built in the early 1800s, and it is now a wonderful, period holiday property, brimming with charm. Leith Hill Place and Tower is a popular historic National Trust site, and is the south of England’s highest point, offering breathtaking views. Leith Hill Place was once a favourite visiting place of Charles Darwin, the famous naturalist, and he conducted experiments in the grounds, and it now attracts visitors worldwide who come to see the popular gardens. Ralph Vaughan Williams, the renowned composer resided there as a child, as did his grandparents who were part of the Wedgwood family, known for their porcelain.

    Comfortable and very clean house in a tranquil setting. Location is remote enough to feel away from it all but near enough to Dorking/Cranleigh for food shopping. Beautiful gardens and a variety of walks on the doorstep. Would definitely stay there again.

    A really lovely cottage in a super location with a delightful garden and loads of walks from the door and lots of other things to do. Colin is a kind, thoughtful and accommodating host. I think the living areas and bathroom might be a shade tight for 4 rambunctious adults, but it's a perfect spot for a couple or a young family, with a small pet. We will definitely be back!

    We had a great time in Tanhurst Cottage. Our hosts were very accommodating. The house was spotless and well equipped. The location couldn't be better. In walking distance of Leith Hill. We loved walking near Newlands Corner and Shere. We will return!

    We had a wonderful time at this cottage, warm and cosy. Everything provided to make the stay comfortable There is a tree outside the sitting room window that is just dripping with birds, a woodpecker, various tits, robins and sparrows. All helped by the neighbours feeding station. Also a squirrel runs around the lawn.
