What a wonderful location, this Garden Cottage which can sleep up to 6 set by the rose and vegetable garden at Polesden Lacey in Surrey. There is one bedroom and a separate big bathroom upstairs, and downstairs a further two bedrooms, one being ensuite with another separate toilet so plenty of facilities.

The ground floor is suitable for the disabled, as no steps at all, even the entrance into the kitchen, which has a lovely big table (with flowers , tea, coffee and biscuits supplied!) The sitting room has a open fire with logs supplied and it really warms up the cottage with the fire going. Lovely views out the front to the chickens, and other views over the gardens. It is a detached nineteenth century gardeners cottage, a few minutes walk from the Edwardian National Trust house of Polesden Lacey.

It is a great walking place from the cottage door, down into the valley and up over the North Downs, with the North Downs Way near by, and circular walks through the gardens finding the old Chalk Pit, and orchards. If you stay in the cottage you have free entry into Polesden Lacey, and can walk in the grounds after hours. You can also eat a lovely lunch or tea in the National Trust cafe on site.

The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed, including some interesting books to read about the area and Polesden Lacey. You access via a separate small lane with parking right by the cottage, through your own gate. Although quite expensive to stay in this self catering cottage it is location, location!
