    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.
