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.

    Absolutely spotlessly clean, and well equipped cottage. Comfortable beds and furnishings. Beautiful, peaceful location, with some amazing country views but be prepared to drive down some quite narrow country lanes to approach the cottage, but well worth the journey if you’re looking for peace and quiet. Great walks on your doorstep too, would be great for dog owners/walkers. Recommend a walk up to Leith hill Tower (which is right on your doorstep) and a trip to Painshill landscape gardens and Dapdune wharf, both about a 30 minute drive from the cottage. Nice local pubs nearby, providing good food & service (The Abinger Hatch & The parrot) Thank you very much for a pleasant stay.
